PNW Components Loam Dropper Lever Kit
For years, other levers have either had a slippery smooth lever face, or a rough machined face for some added grip. PNW have come on to the block with a brand new approach, injection moulded silicone. Now, we're not saying it's better, just different... OK who are we kidding, we've tested this ourselves and it's definitely better. Not only is silicone super squishy and comfortable, it's also super grippy. Silicone is also naturally dirt repellent and incredibly resistant to the weather, hence why it's used for cooking implements like spatulas.
Every part of the loam lever is precision CNC machined for maximum weight savings while maintaining durability.
The Loam Lever is just about as weatherproof as possible. It features full stainless steel mounting hardware, and rotates on an oversized, double sealed bearing.
The No Slip Grip silicone lever pad provides amazing levels of comfort, but to take it even further, the whole lever is super adjustable. You can move it left to right along the clamp, adjust how far around the stroke it sits, and since it's such a low profile, you can spin it as far around the bars as necessary without your brake lever getting in the way.
- Includes: Jagwire inner cable. NOTE: Outer cables housing is NOT included.
- Accepts cable routing from either direction
- Compatible with literally every cable seat post on the market!

A boss lever
This lever is awesome. The paddle is large and super easy to manipulate with the silicone pad. It was also easy to install and adjust - once I ran the cable from the dropper to the lever, I got the ideal thumb position and stroke for me first try.
$100 is not cheap for a lever, but the Loam has a real premium aftermarket feel, certainly better than a stock lever if one is inclined to personalise. There were two minor letdowns - the decision to include only an inner cable with no sheath (which is inconvenient for a newbie install, otherwise might have been left out and reduced the price a little), and the black anodizing on the back of the lever scraped off fairly easily when trying to get the cable end through. Neither letdown is a dealbreaker and I do not regret the choice!
Nice smooth action with a comfortable and grippy lever. All the adjustment options are nice too.
Bought this for my winter hard tail, and it felt good. Only realised just how fantastic it was when I jumped back on the Enduro rig and didn’t have it. Such a good leaver feel, big leaver makes it easy to use and the rubber makes it feel great and super grippy! I ordered a second for the enduro

I bought the Loam Lever to go with the PNW Bachelor post. It's smooth, perfectly located for easy actuation without having to twist your hand around, and super easy to install.
*PLEASE NOTE* Although the lever comes with an inner cable, it does NOT come with cable housing. Luckily, the housing from a discarded 2x front shifter I had lying around was just the right length. So make sure you either have a bit spare, or be prepared to purchase some. A disappointing omission from what is otherwise a top-notch product.

Quality product that looks great on my bike thank you
Great Product, no regrets
I love small companies and the uniqueness they can bring to the market. This loam lever by PWN feels awesome, looks awesome and is 100% better than my vertical lever I previously used. If you are caught between paying the extra $$ - I recommended, if you only get 1 lever might as well get a good one
