KS Lev Integra Dropper Post
Internal version of KS' workhorse.
The LEV dropper post has been the workhorse in the KS line and offers premium features that help set it aside from the competition. The LEV features a lightweight aluminium construction and utilises carbon and titanium bits for further weight saving. With hydraulic internals, this post will feel smooth and precise without any annoying slop.
You are viewing the Integra version which is designed specifically for internally routed frames.
Available in the common seatpost diameters and drops, the LEV is a post that you can depend on while giving you all the performance you need on every ride.
Available in the following specs:
- 27.2, 30.9, 31.6 and 34.9mm seatpost diameters.
- 125, 150 and 175mm drop.
- Internally routed, cable actuated.
- Carbon remote.
- Zero offset two-bolt, standard rails.
- Black anodised mast and stanchion.
- 550-635g depending on size.
Please note: While compatible with all handlebars, the lever can be used to replace an ODI lock on grip clamp (gen 1).

Everyone needs a dropper.
by Andrew Cathcart
Works perfectly on my 2018 Giant Anthem and the over the bars trigger is what I needed to go with the twinlock which is under the bars.
Nice action, no slop, lightweight and reasonable price.
I would have given it 5 stars but my android phone isn't letting me select the last star.
Works great out of the box

Was a little worried as it appeared few dropper posts would fit my Trek PowerFly 5 FS frame. But I needn't have worried, the measurement guide for the KS Lev was right on the money dimensions-wise. MTB Direct were great with the order confirmation and shipping details, so a stress-free purchase. Needed a little help from Trek Direct to work out the cable routing, but paired with a Wolf Tooth ReMote Light Action Lever, this combo has been a butt-saver on the trails around Makara Peak for the last 6 months.
Great post but crap seat clamp
by John -
I love the action of this post. I have the 175mm version. Being 6 foot with long legs for my height it is great. It is my second KS LEV other one was 150mm. Found the extra length great. I have used Fox DOSS and a couple of Reverbs but the KS has been the most reliable so far. Now to the worst bit. How in this day can a well thought out post come with such a crappy seat clamp. I am on my 3rd top plate now in 6 months. They are so weak and bend. It has just about got me ready to switch to another brand due to this seat clamp. I have even bent the last two new designs. The last one started to deform before it got to the 8Nm point. And yes it was installed correctly. It was leveled and then increased the torque by 1Nm each time tightening front then back bolt till I got to 8Nm. If you look online at some forums in the States there are a lot of unhappy people going back a few years. I now have some drawings in at a local machine shop to make a better one (I did an apprenticeship as a machinist years ago but don't work in the field anymore) The frustrating thing is that I have never has this in over 30 years of riding with any other seatpost. I think it is the only thing letting it down.

This is my 2nd KS lev integra I've purchased. The first required repairing under warranty.but seemed okay after that. No issues so far with the 2nd KS dropper post. Seat xlamp can creak

I have to admit , a month ago , I was sitting at home a little nervous , I had just spent $500 online , overseas(as I'm based in NZ) this was the first time I had ordered anything of value online! But because there were none of these in New Zealand , and I was under pressure to have it before an up coming MTB race , I had to buy it! My nerves soon disappeared , as I began receiving emails from customer support confirming my New Zealand Address and the staff even fast tracked it over here , so it would be here for my Motatapu MTB race in Wanaka/Queenstown! Highly recommend the KS LEV Integra dropper post, easy to install and setup, very smooth to use on the Anthem 29r and can confidently say Mountain Bikes Direct are easy to communicate with during your purchase! Stoked it was here for my race!!! Cheers!
I bought this after being

I bought this after being sick and tired of dealing with a failing reverb stealth for one reason or another. I had KS Lev on another bike and found it worked brilliantly and this was no different on my new bike. Only improvement I'd consider is the southpaw again for a lever. The original lever is a little stumpy. Still, it functions appropriately nevertheless. A doddle to set up and use with no hydraulic dramas.
