Canada based 9point8 have rolled out a 34.9mm version of its popular Fall Line dropper post. The 34.9mm Fall Line is available in all standards lengths (125mm, 150mm, 175mm, 200mm) and can also be customized. By profiling the inside diameter of the lower tube, 9point8 made its 34.9mm dropper relatively light weight.
For the uninitiated 9Point8’s dropper posts have a great reputation for long term durability. The Fall Line feature list includes titanium saddle-rail clamping screws and angle-adjust screws; black-Ti coating for anti-galling, anti-seize performance; larger fasteners for convenience and strength; install/remove the remote control without removing grips or controls; a rotational anti-backlash design; a vertical, fore-aft, left-right anti-backlash design; and independent adjustment of the seat angle and seat fore/aft position.
The Fall Line also uses a bottom stealth entry for bikes with internal routing, and it has a no-tools-needed easy disconnect. That means you can install and remove the post without having to cut the cable, and the cable connection has an anti-pull design, meaning adjusting the height of the post will not affect cable tension. Perhaps even cooler is that 9Point8 offers custom stroke tuning so most riders can literally get the most drop for your bike and seat height.
The 34.9mm Fall Line is available with any of 9point8’s remotes, including the Digit One-by, the ThumB, or the Trigger. Claimed weights (post only) for various lengths are: 375x125mm – 489g; 440x150mm – 543g; 500x175mm – 589g; 560x200mm – 638g. Price ranges from $399 to $449 depending on stroke length.
