Good not great


Good for the money, but too many small gripes .. from coming off a fox transfer bought this for the extra length/ shorter insert.
Firstly, the dropper itself seems to be very sensitive to seat post clamp torque as it’s not even close to its recommended 8nm and it messes with actuating the dropper
To get the dropper moving is inconsistent and has a very on/ off feel.. almost no control over slight/ slow movements ( maybe it needs to be broken in and prob coming off a fox transfer didn’t help )
Finally too much side to side movement for my liking
Also, pnw claiming a shorter insert but they’ve just added that to the collar being super wide so although I can slam the dropper all the way into my frame now I was hoping I could get the seat a tad lower to so the wide collar just cancels that out
Hopefully it just needs to be broken in some but yeah wouldn’t have been happy paying full retail for the dropper

Top quality and reliability at a great price

Build quality and finish is top notch and the action whilst not bullet fast (and endangering your future progeny) is never in doubt. As smooth as any other top quality dropper out there even though it is spring actuated. For this price you can't go wrong. If it's good enough for Jeff Kendall Weed, it's good enough for you! 3 year warranty is awesome.



Got a few rides on it now and I have to say this seat post feels like a premium bit of kit.
Very little play at the saddle.
Seat post head is good, no creaks from the saddle.
Return speed is plenty fast.
Wiper seems to be good quality.
Really easy to install if buy a loam lever, not so easy with the included leaver.
Only downside so far, you can buy the more expensive batchelor seat post with loam lever included for less than the price of the Rainier and loam lever. That left me feeling slightly ripped off,
