The 9point8 Fall Line dropper post features a design so impressive that its internals have been licensed by several other companies. While RockShox’s popular Reverb is notorious for being unreliable and requiring constant service, the all-mechanical design of the 9point8 promises to just keep working.

The internals of the post use an air damping cartridge to pop your seat back into position. If for some reason you lose air pressure, the post can be manually locked in any position since it’s spring actuated. The Fall Line also features a key where the shaft connects to the internals, to help prevent side-to-side slop. Finally, the post can withstand up to 1000 pounds of push or pull force. That means that you can drop your post and pick your bike up by the seat with no issues!
