BikeYoke REVIVE 160 dropper postA new player in the dropper post game...

BikeYoke is a company located in Munich, Germany. They've created a completely new design of dropper posts, the BikeYoke REVIVE 160 dropper seatpost. The hydraulic circuit is a very stable closed system and basically maintenance free.

DESIGN SPECS:

  1. No external air will go inside the post's hydraulic circuit, since it is charged with a higher pressure than its surroundings.
  2. No oil will go out (or at least very very little oil over the course of a long time), because of very stable sealing.
  3. The hydraulic system can be reset to “new” via the unique “REVIVE-valving” system.

We have the REVIVE 160 - 31.6 in stock. MSRP is $397.50.

 

Point it downhill and have a blast.

2018 Kona Process 165The 2018 Kona Process 165 bridges the gap between the Process 153 and the World Cup-proven Operator. Expect to see Kona freeride pro Graham Agassiz riding the new Process 165 quite often. This 165mm travel bike is more focused on the descents but climbs surprisingly well for a long-travel platform. The bike has a slightly shorter reach (like the 26-inch Operator), great for park riding. The suspension design is progressive and purpose-built for use with a coil shock.

With a great suspension and drivetrain package, this Kona Process is built to last.

PROCESS 165 SPECS:

  • Frame Material: Kona 6061 Aluminum Butted 165mm Travel
  • Wheel Size: 27.5
  • Beamer Independent Suspension design: 170mm front/165mm rear
  • Shock: RockShox Super Deluxe Coil R Trunnion
  • Fork: RockShox Lyrik RC Solo Air 170mm Tapered 110mm Spacing
  • Crankset: SRAM Descendant 6K
  • Drivetrain: SRAM GX Eagle 12spd
  • MSRP is $3999
