Description

Specifically designed for 1x setups. The Southpaw mounts underneath the left handlebar so you can safely actuate your dropper post without sacrificing your grip. 

Compatibility: Intended for use with KS dropper posts, the Southpaw is a front-feed design, so the barrel end of the cable is at the lever and the cable is clamped at the dropper. 

Previous models were available in a 22.2mm split clamp bar mount only, but options will be available for Shimano I-Spec II, I-Spec EV, and SRAM Matchmaker X options.

Materials: Alloy lever body, stainless steel hardware.

Tension adjuster: Yes, there is a barrel adjuster on the remote to adjust the cable tension.

What's in the box: Remote only. KS posts come with  inner cable and housing included so they don't include these with the remotes.

Composite is just rubbish

by

Bought the composite one.Not worth the hassle at all. Plastic does not hold the nut, once it's stripped it's done, can't even loosen it now to take it off. Lesson learned, never buy composite parts.
Shipping and service was good, just wish I spent the extra to get something useable

Nice upgrade to swap out the standard lever.

Great upgrade for the standard ks lever. The Southpaw keeps your hands on your bars so you can focus on shredding the gnar, without adjusting your grip to hit your dropper.

It's OK,not great....the clamp mechanism

It's OK,not great....the clamp mechanism does not grab on the carbon bar, it slipped around when I pushed the lever and is now being held in place by the break lever. I even put some rubber underneath it... For $75 bucks I would not buy another one...I recon a reasonable price for this would be about $45.00

Good idea, design not quite there yet

It is great to not have to move your hand to activate the dropper post, and this remote has a lot of adjustment in it to get the lever in a good location. The biggest downfall of this remote is the clamp design. It is not ribbed, and does not clamp fully around the bar, so it moves a lot. I have tried tightening it up as tight as I can, using a thin strip of rubber, and using outdoor double sided tape to keep it in place, but it is forever moving around, which is frustrating. If KS revised the clamp it would be a five star product.

Basically as soon as I got it I sent it back. Not that there was anything wrong with the product info act the build quality is awesome, nicely shaped... the only issue was that it only works with droppers where the cable is run from the switch to the post and not the other way around.

This lever does make the operation of the dropper post better. It was a bit costly but now I use my seat post alot more, so you could say I get better value for money out of the ks post I brought. also when fitting it I used a standard gear cable and it works just fine
