    New RASE 8 dropper coming soon

    I'm not affiliated with RASE, just a satisfied customer from their former offering, now out of production.

    I got an email from RASE saying they are now producing this 8-inch all-mechanical, micro-adjustable dropper:


    ***********

    Some features of the new model include:

    ● Super Strong 2-Bolt Clamp Design
    ● Up to 8 of on the fly smooth adjustability
    ● Excellent Cable Routing Design - Cable remains stationary at all times
    ● Uses off-the-shelf derailleur cable for simple replacement if ever necessary
    ● Zero Offset

    ● Available in size 30.9 & 31.6mm sizes 30.0 & 27.2mm will be available at a later date

    ● Precision machined and assembled entirely in the U.S.A.


    Some specifications of the new model include:

    ● The fully extended length from the bottom of the collar body is 11.89[302mm].
    ● When the post is at full extent, there is still 3.10[78.8mm] of the post inside the assembly.
    ● At the lowest position, the seat rails are 3.87[88.1mm] from the top of the bike seat tube.
    ● At the lowest position, inserted length is 11.49[291.8].
    ● The post diameter is 0.472[24mm].

    ***********

    Without the dust boot:

    Like the old Black Mamba, when off your bike you can pull up on the seat wherever the post is adjusted to, and it will stay locked in place, unlike some hydro posts.

    I did spend over 300 for my Mamba, and it was worth it IMO. Nine inches (or even eight) of fully adjustable drop is insane. Of course it won't work with every seat tube.* I'm pretty excited about this, wish I was in the dropper market.


    *Just checked a large BronsonC. Too close to call, IMO. There is a slight bend at the low point of the ST insert depth, there may still be enough room in there for the center shaft to clear.

    8" holy crap that's a lot. I have a 5" GD post, and despite being well north of 6' i still think it's a bit too much drop. I guess there's no downside to it since it has all those settings, though. Happy to see rase is still in the game, there's not enough fully mechanical domestically produced posts on the market.

    Thanks for sharing She&I.

    I'm implying it's a no name company smart4ss. Googling it yields no results. And, rase.com is a free parking site (i.e. Vanilla ads served by hosting company, marked for sale). If the company were serious, they should probably buy the domain.

    They're working on a new web site, FWIW. This is the old site:

    RASE | Black Mamba Rapid Adjust Seatpost...The Ultimate Adjustable Bike Seat Post

    (The photo on the landing page is the old Black Mamba.)

    I herald the company for their product innovations and designs, not for their web presence and SEO savvy.

    I'd have to buy a too small frame to fit some of these posts. Weird.
