Dropper posts have certainly come a long way over the past few years, but the–despite countless tweaks and re-engineerings–hydraulic lines are still a huge pain in the ass to set-up and maintain. A brand like Crank Brothers knows a thing or two about simple solutions to problems that don’t need to be as difficult as innovation makes them, and its Highline Dropper Seatpost applies the simple-does-it Eggbeater Pedal approach to the dropper world. Instead of the above-mentioned, pain-in-the-ass hydraulic lines, the Highline features a hybrid system that uses a Jagwire cable to actuate a self-contained hydraulic cartridge. Set-up is simpler, function is more reliable, but it includes the smoothness of hydraulics where the post actually rises and drops. The 125mm travel is fully adjustable, and the cable itself routes internally to maintain the clean, uncluttered look of contemporary cockpits.
