BikeYoke Revive Max dropper post designed with 34.9 post size in mind

By Stephen Frothingham

MUNICH, Germany (BRAIN) — BikeYoke’s new Revive Max dropper was designed from the ground up for bikes that use 34.9 millimeter seatposts. The Revive Max has a 28 millimeter stanchion, compared to the 25 millimeter stanchion on the standard Revive and on most other dropper posts.

The larger diameter stanchion offers more strength and stiffness and looks better on frames with oversized seat tubes, the company said. The extra strength also helps the post meet e-MTB standards.

The company said the new size is being used on bikes including the Specialized Enduro, EVIL Wreckoning, Pyga Hyrax and others.

The Max post is available wth 125-, 160-, or 185 millimeters of travel and the company said it weighs less than 50 grams more than its comparable standard diameter post, not including the weight savings from eliminating the need for a shim. The 185 millimeter travel model weighs 590 grams for the post alone. The BikeYoke Triggy remote level with clamp weighs 36 grams.

MSRP with the remote is $455-$499 depending on travel. The company said it will begin shipping the Max model in mid-March.
