PNW Components Cascade Dropper Post
With the external cable coming from the collar, rather than up at the saddle clamp, you don't get nearly as messy a cable routing, nor does it get in the way once the post is dropped.
V3 posts have slightly different packaging and do not come with a remote. The post itself is identical to the previous iterations.
150mm and 170mm options have a larger, stiffer stanchion, and also receive an extra bushing to help fight against 'wobbly post syndrome'. They also have a 1x specific, shifter style lever included, as well as an inner and outer cable.
125mm versions have an upright, 2x style lever included.

- 125, 150, and 170mm drop lengths
- Cable actuated
- External routing
- Coil spring
- Infinite positions within travel range
- 3 year warranty

Recommended dropper post
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.

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.
