Shimano drops in with new Pro Koryak dropper post

Shimano enters the mountain bike dropper post market with the new 120-millimeter travel, cable-actuated Koryak post with internal routing.

Don't miss a moment from Paris-Roubaix and Unbound Gravel, to the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and everything in between when you join Outside+.

Shimano enters the mountain bike dropper post market with the new 120-millimeter travel, cable-actuated Koryak post with internal routing. Sold under the company’s Pro Bike Component range, the new post weighs 520 grams (including remote and cables) and is available in either 30.9- or 31.6-millimeter diameter options. The adjustable alloy post uses a non-indexed travel system for unlimited height adjustments while riding.

A replaceable air cartridge provides the post’s downward movement and upward rebound, and the mechanism is operated by an internally routed cable. The cable runs down the seatpost and through the frame and then connects to a bar-mounted lever, like a Crankbrothers Highline or a KS LEV with internal routing.

Two lever options are available: a regular vertical up/down lever that can be mounted to the left or right of the bars and a horizontal shifter-style lever, for cyclists running a 1×11 setup or a Shimano Syncro Shift drivetrain. The lever is mounted on the left side of the bars looks like a Shimano shift paddle, keeping a symmetrical look from the right to the left side of the bars.

No MSRP has been set yet, but Shimano says posts will be available this fall.
