The world of dropper post is a crowded one, and it takes something pretty special for us to sit up (pun intended) and take notice of a newcomer to the scene. OneUp Components has made us do just that. Knowing the quality of products and innovative ideas that OneUp Components has come to be recognized for, our curiosity was piqued when we got word that they were throwing their hat in the dropper post ring.

Luckily, we didn’t have to wait too long to get a chance to jump on a call with Jon Hadfield from One Up Components to pick his brain on the ins and outs of this new challenger. Here’s what we learned, and why this sub-$250 dropper post is going to make it onto our bike upgrade/add-on lists.
We got the chance to take a behind-the-scenes look at the Crankbrothers headquarters, and a look at some of their hottest new products to hit the market.

Follow up reviews are upcoming.
