Model/Year: i950-r remote version

Pros: Inspires confidence, reliable, no wobble, awesome lever

Cons: Cable movement, customer service SUCKS!!

Recommendation: The i950r was one of the best investments I've made. It changes the way you ride, even while you're not using it. The post has no side to side wobble like some of the others and hands down has the best lever in the biz blending seamlessly into your cockpit. Unlike many other droppers, you can lift the seat while it's lowered without it raising, very nice! Don't bother calling customer service cause you'll get no where. (I didn't have problems, just had questions)

Pros: adjustable, remote, dependable

Cons: Only one place in the US to get factory work done.

Recommendation: I've owned this for a few years and have only had one problem. The seat would raise up after lowering it on it's own.

I contacted KS; I mailed them the seat post and they fixed it quickly. Customer service was very friendly and helpful.

After that I have had absolutely no problems since. I don't know how anyone can not ride without an adjustable seat post.
