New Droppers join the lineup in May of 2014. 30.9 and 31.6 Covert Dropper posts are built for bikes that utilize internal housing and cable routing for dropper posts. Housing and cable exits the bottom of the post and does not move when the post moves.
Covert droppers cannot be converted to external cable models, and existing external cable droppers cannot be converted to covert. All specifications are the same, 5 inches/125mm of infinite travel, 515 g for weight.
You want the increased control a dropper post gives you but you had to give up your Thomson post to have it. Not any longer, you can put your Thomson post back on the bike! Our cartridge based system is designed to have the longest service life in the industry. If repair is needed it is fast, affordable and simple. Every single component is the best available. Custom made Norglide bearing bushings, custom made Trelleborg O-Rings and seals, Thomson saddle clamps and fasteners, Motul Oil. This is the drop post good enough to be called a Thomson Elite.
