OneUp Components Dropper Post Remote Lever
The OneUp Components Dropper Post Remote Lever is a sleek looking aluminum dropper remote with an oversized bearing that is super smooth.
The remote itself has a super smooth action thanks to the oversized bearing it runs on. The lever position is unique compared to everything else in that it's positioned further around where the upshift lever usually sits, (not the downshift lever like a normal dropper remote) this allows your thumb to remain wrapped further around the bar and makes it quicker to reach the remote as there is less thumb movement.
This is compatible with any other brand/model of hydraulic dropper. If your dropper is clamps at the post, just cut the end of the cable, and clamp it at both ends.
Who's this item for: Any rider looking for a great quality and versatile cable actuated dropper remote to suit their cockpit.
Compatibility: Compatible with all cable actuated dropper posts.
Tension adjustor: Yes
NOTE: Matchmaker X clamp is compatible with XTR M9100 I-Spec EV as well. Does not work with XT m8100 or SLX m7100
- 22.2mm Bar Clamp - 46g
- SRAM Matchmaker X/I-Spec EV - 43g
- Shimano I-spec II - 41g
Stand out features: Super smooth pivot due to the large bearing. Compatible with
What's in the box: Includes Remote, inner cable and housing.
Pros: Great quality with super smooth actuation at a great price.
Cons: Not a lot, but to niggle, the thumb pad is grippy not the comfiest out there. Not currently compatible with the I-Spec EV on XT m8100 or SLX m7100 so we'd recommend the bar clamp option for use with those.

Ratings & Reviews
I've tried lots, this is my fav
by Michael - Staff
I'm a bit of a princess when it comes to my controls which is why I've tried lots of remotes. The Oneup nails the ergonomics. The paddle has the right amount of grip, but is not like a cheese grater without gloves. The leverage ratio is spot on for an easy push without lots of lever travel.
Nice feel, meh ergonomics.
by Grant Wallace
Really well made, with a nice lever action.
Not a fan of the ergonomics at all.
Oneup don't hide that this will sit further tucked under the bar than other dropper levers. I was keen to give it a go, but it just never felt natural. Always feels like i'm having to rotate my hand/wrist to depress the lever.
Rotating the clamp doesn't help. that just lead to the lever fowling my hand when not in use.
Great value upgrade
Installed this on a Giant Trance a year ago now. Has been awesome. Absolutely no complaints at all. Worked perfectly and never had an issue. Do not ever notice it, which is a good sign of a good product
Worked well until it snapped off. Too fragile, get a different lever.
I really liked the feel of this remote and it was relatively easy to install. The lever worked really well for about 8 months. However, I just took my bike out for the first ride of the season, promptly spun out and it my leg on the lever. The lever snapped off and cannot be fixed. The lever clam is made of metal, but the lever itself is not strong at all. I ordered a PNW loam lever, which is made of metal and is much more substantial. While I 100% recommend the ONEUP dropper post, I'd have to recommend that you use a different lever with it.
OneUp Remote Lever
by Benny Storer -
Bad. The OneUp Remote Lever felt flimsy and cheap straight out of the packaging. When I installed the 22.2mm bar clamp I gave a quarter turn too many (my fault) and the lever mount snapped clean off. Ouch. No repairing it, it's a bin job. Give this carbon lever a miss and spend a few extra dollars on an alloy lever (I just did, bought a Wolf Tooth Lever to replace the broken OneUp).
Perfect for the OneUp Dropper

The remote is perfect for the superb OneUp Dropper post. However, if you use this for a different post, your experience might be different. I used it on a KS E30i for a few months and found that I had to fully actuate the remote for it to trigger the drop, even after adjusting cable tension. Yes it is compatible, but other remotes might be better. OneUp remote + OneUp Dropper = More fun. I only have to actuate the remote about 50% to trigger the drop or return. My thumb has never been happier. The remote itself is easy to install. Limited adjustability on the I spec II mount, but I managed to find a position that I liked. Cheaper than other remotes too. Kudos to OneUp.
