Description

The Cascade is coil spring operated for outstanding durability and low maintenance and features an externally routed cable to fit a wide variety of bikes. The external cable comes from the collar to keep things as neat as possible and it won't get in the way once the post is dropped.

150mm and 170mm options have a larger, stiffer stanchion, and also receive an extra bushing to help fight against 'wobbly post syndrome'.

V3 posts have slightly different packaging than the earlier models and do not come with a remote. The post itself is identical to the previous iterations.

Models stating 1x remote come with a shifter style under bar lever for use with single-ring drivetrains.

Models stating 2x remote come with a remote designed to play nicely with a front shifter.

Who's this item for: The Cascade is a great choice riders that don't have internal routing for a dropper post in their frame. It's a low-cost, low maintenance post that will reliably do its job without you needing to fuss with it all the time.

Actuation style: This is a cable actuated dropper post.

Spring style: The Cascade uses a coil spring for fuss-free performance.

Infinite or finite adjustments: It's and infinitely adjustable post which means it can go all the way up, all the way down, or anywhere in-between. 

Internal or externally routed: Externally routed with the cable entering the post at the collar.

Lever included:
  • Models stating 1x remote come with a shifter style under bar lever for use with single-ring drivetrains.
  • Models stating 2x remote come with a remote designed to play nicely with a front shifter.
  • V3 posts do not come with a remote.
Lever mounting options: 22.2mm bar clamp.

Includes cable / housing / battery: The models that state they come with a 1x or 2x remote will include a Jagwire cable kit with 1500mm of housing. This may be too short for your frame, depending on how the cable needs to be routed. We recommend that you check this before ordering.

V3 posts with no remote supplied will not include cable or housing.

Saddle clamp style: 2-bolt clamp for easy saddle mounting and fine angle adjustments.

Recommended dropper post

by

The crew at MTB direct suggested this dropper post for my hardtail as I did not have internal routing. It was an easy install (video tutorial and instructions are online - environmentally friendly). The dropper works really well, easy to operate, returns well at a rate I think to be fast enough. The dropper is user serviceable and works using a spring rather than air chamber. The only drawback is the dropper is heavier than others (~100-200 grams or so). The weight is not a deal breaker for me, but something to think about if you want to keep weight down.

Very Smooth

by -

This was to replace my old specialised command post that when it worked was great, but stopped working again requiring workshop attention. Rather than waste more money on it to last another 6-12 months it was time for a new one. MTB direct recommended this as by far the best external routed dropper they had. ( i cant use an internal routed one)
Install of the post was super simple and connected up to my wolf tooth dropper remote without a problem. In terms of operation it is silky smooth up and down, with very little effort required to operate it. I was very impressed and beats my old specialised one hands down.

The only gripe I have is there should be an option of the 1x or 2x remote. If you have a 1 x setup you should be able to get the 1 x remote, but this only comes with the longer posts not the 125mm one I purchased. In the end it didn't matter for me as I just used the wolftooth 1x remote I already had, but it would have been nice to have a spare.
