Santa Cruz, Calif.-based X-Fusion has added an internally-routed version of the popular Hilo adjustable seatpost to their product line. The Hilo SL Strate—or SLS— moves the actuation mechanism to the bottom of the seatpost making it compatible with the growing number of bikes with internal dropper post routing.
Like prior versions of the Hilo, the new post is cable-actuated and mates to X-Fusion’s BAT handlebar remote lever. The post is available in 30.9 and 31.6mm diameters, and in 125 and 150mm travel options.
The 150mm Hilo SLS retails for $289.99, with the 125mm version going for $269.99. Both include cable, housing and mounting hardware.
The X-Fusion SL Strate features a two-bolt head (left), and cable-entry at the bottom of the post.
We’ll be putting the Hilo SLS on our Intense Carbine 29 for testing—look for an in-depth review soon.
