Product Description

MBR Editors Choice Award 2019

The Brand-X Ascend II is an externally routed dropper seatpost that offers excellent performance and reliability without breaking the bank. Tweak your saddle height for what lies ahead and tackle the trail in comfort.

Externally Routed Dropper Seatpost

Building on the success of the Ascend Dropper Seatpost, this aluminium dropper post is available for those who have a rig without internal cable routing: Brand-X is bringing affordable and reliable dropper posts to the people! With infinitely smooth adjustments and an ergonomic paddle style lever that can sit on the left or right of your cockpit, the Brand-X Ascend II Dropper Seatpost is the upgrade that your bike needs. To avoid cable movement/pull, this dropper seatpost's cable is actuated from the mid-cap and delivers consistent performance.

Key Features:

  • Material: T6-6061 Aluminium
  • Bar mounted paddle style remote lever and cable operated external routing
  • Linkage mechanism eliminates any outer cable pull
  • Zero offset, one-piece head/upper shaft with micro adjust clamping mechanism
  • Length: 400mm
  • Travel: 125mm (27.2mm = 105mm travel)
  • Cable Length: 1.5m
  • Finish: Sand blasted and hard anodised
  • Warranty: 2 years
  • Weight: 610g (30.9mm) w/o cable and paddle shifter (90g)

Please Note: The 31.6 and 30.9 diameter options come with the 1x shifter style remote shown in the image, and are not suitable for use on bikes with 2X or 3X front gearing. Our current stock of the 27.2 diameter post comes with a 22.2 lever that is compatible with 2X or 3X front gearing.

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Best external dropper post
by Anonymous user on 20/01/2020

This dropper post is by far the best design I’ve seen yet when external cable routing is your only option. The cable entry is at the bottom of the post and remains static regardless of post position. The action is butter smooth for a cable operated post and returns quickly when needed. The lever is designed for a 1x cockpit and ideally should be mounted on the LHS on your bars. If you have a 2x cockpit, it can be mounted on the RHS, and whilst upside down it will still work effectively. There is also an upgrade paddle lever available which is universal, nice but not necessary if you’re working to a budget. The build quality is fabulous for the price and the benefit to your ride is obvious. * BE SURE TO MEASURE CORRECTLY BEFORE CHOOSING DROPPER HEIGHT

Seatposts Guide

What are seatposts?

The seatpost is the extendable metal rod that slots into your bike’s frame, with a clamp at the top to hold your saddle.

Who needs a seatpost?

Every bike has a seatpost, but a common reason for fitting a new one is to get a longer post for a leggy rider. Weight saving is another prime reason for upgrading.

What are the choices?

You need to pick the right seatpost width for your frame, but then you will have a choice of materials, from practical aluminium to weight-saving carbon. Mountain bikers can also opt for dropper posts, which are tremendously useful out on the trails.

What should I buy with them?

You might need a different seatpost clamp to go with your new seatpost and hold it firm in your frame.

Anything else?

Finding out which seatpost width you need can be a tricky business. With luck it will be stamped on the inside of your bike’s seat tube. It is measured down to tenths of millimetres, so eyeballing it with the tape measure won’t work.
