Description

PNW made this post to honour your most adventurous days on the trail. From the Quadzilla climbs to the serpentine descents, the Loam Dropper capitalises on PNW’s best-in-class reliability in our shortest, lightest and most customisable package yet.

The Loam also features swappable silicone bands that hug the midcap and PNW offers these in a few different colour options. 

The post comes with the black band as standard and the coloured bands are an optional add-on that we won't be stocking(sorry!)


Upgraded Travel Plans:

By shortening the overall post and adding 25mm of Tool-Less Travel Adjust PNW has guaranteed you more drop across a wider variety of frame designs, sizes and body types. This means more distraction-free descents with less awkward high fives from your saddle when the trail gets rowdy.

Under Pressure:

Slow and controlled or swift and poppy? Dial-in your dropper’s return rate with personalised pressure, courtesy of the Loam Post’s adjustable air cartridge. The posts come underinflated during shipping to preserve the cartridge so set the post to your desired air pressure (270-300psi) before installing your saddle.

Travel Adjust Feature:

The travel adjust system allows for a total of 25mm travel reduction in 5mm increments. If you were riding that line between travel sizes you can now fine-tune the perfect fit by following the easy directions below:

  1. Begin by lowering your dropper at or below the desired travel length (just make sure it’s not fully extended!)
  2. Unthread the midcap with your hand and slide it up to reveal the white DU Bushing.
  3. You’ll see negative numbers with corresponding notches machined into the post (each # represents decreasing travel.
  4. Slide the DU bushing up and rotate it to align the black arrow with the amount of travel you would like to reduce, then seat the arrow into the machined groove. (Make sure it’s fit securely into these notches!)
  5. After pushing the DU Bushing back down, lower the midcap and hand tighten (no need to go overboard!) and ride off into the sunset with the perfect travel for you.

What’s the difference between the Rainier Gen 3 and the Loam?

The Loam Post has a shorter actuator and more machining on the stanchion both of which work to create a shorter overall post. This allows for more travel in a larger variety of bike frames. Another difference is the cartridge. With the Rainier, you get a sealed “set-it-and-forget-it” cartridge. The Loam has the advantage of an adjustable air cartridge, where you can customise your return rate.

How often do I need to service the post?

As riding frequency and conditions vary, PNW does not have a strict service interval. Instead, they recommend servicing your post if it starts to feel sticky/slows down. When it does come down to service it is a quick and easy, at-home process.

How do I set up the adjustable air cartridge?

The Loam dropper features an adjustable alloy cartridge that requires a high-pressure shock pump to setup. They come under-inflated during shipping to preserve the cartridge. To adjust the pressure do the following:

1. Before installing your saddle remove the clamp assembly and hardware.
2. Remove the rubber grommet covering the valve.
3. Manually actuate the post so it is in the fully extended position.
4. Thread the shock pump on the valve and inflate to 270-300psi for optimal performance.
5. Remove the pump and you are now ready to complete the install.

Purchased a PNW loam dropper a few months ago in the 170mm x 31.6 version.
After some solid use this thing is still impressing me! Silky smooth, no rattles, and minimal side-to-side and fore-aft freeplay. If i ever need a new post for any other bike I would not hesitate to buy one of these again. Fantastic value for money too.

Absolute banger post!

Love this dropper post.

I was a little unsure about which dropper post to buy. Did some home work and the PNW Loam came out on top as far as price, servicability and warranty. When it arrived in it's enviro friendly packaging i was happy. It installed very easily. i have been using it nearly daily for the last two weeks and it works flawlessly. Very happy. No side play, goes down easy and comes back up at a good speed. Couldn't be happier at this point.

Awesome Dropper 170mm!
