BikeYoke Divine SL dropper aimed at XC/marathon riding

Published October 17, 2018

 MUNICH (BRAIN) —  BikeYoke says its new Divine SL internally routed dropper post was launched in response to riders’ requesting a shorter-travel post than the German brand’s predecessor, the 125- to 185-millimeter-travel Revive dropper.

Designed for cross-country and marathon riding, the Divine SL has 80 millimeters of drop and comes in 30.9- and 31.6-millimeter diameters. The 30.9-millimeter version weighs 385 grams at its full 400-millimeter length, but can be cut down to 285 millimeters to tip the scales at less than 350 grams.

The Divine SL has new internals integrated into a shell for weight savings. The mast´s lower is tapered on the inside and can be cut off to save extra weight.

“We put a lot of attention to reliability and serviceability,” BikeYork stated in a release. “The Divine SL can be taken apart and serviced with basic tools and all service and spare parts will be available reasonably priced for end consumers. It’s a 10-minute job to do basic service — no oil spill involved, as you don´t need to open the hydraulic cartridge itself.”

The post’s new Triggy X lever is designed for 1-by drivetrains and mounts under the handlebar via its own clamp or, with matchmaking adapters, can be mated to brake levers from SRAM, Shimano, Magura, Formula and Hope. A 2-by lever option is also available for riders running multi-chainring drivetrains, and can be mounted on either side of the handlebars.

Suggested retail: $399, with delivery starting at the end of November.
