E-Thirteen revamps TRS+ dropper seatpost

Published February 26, 2018

PETALUMA, Calif. (BRAIN) — E-Thirteen has updated its TRS+ dropper post with new internals and a revised bushing layout to make the 170-millimeter-stroke post shorter in overall length than E-Thirteen’s 150-millimeter post.

“Our 170-millimeter seatpost uses the same fully mechanical, coil-sprung, cable-actuated internals that don't require bleeds, won't sag out, and can be serviced at home with a basic set of tools,” E-Thirteen stated. “With less internals, there’s also less to go wrong. To top it off, we've updated many of our existing internals to better function in both short and long term.”
The post a shifter-style lever that pivots on cartridge bearings and a heat-treated cable-actuated cam to lock the post into one of four positions. The fully mechanical design requires no bleeding or nitrogen charging, and the post can be fully disassembled and serviced using common shop tools.

Suggested retail: $279
