Whether you are out to shred trails on your all-mountain bike or looking to shave some time off your next marathon race, a Contour dropper post will improve your ride.
The Lyne Contour is available in two variations: internal cable routing or external cable routing
The Contour dropper post has a proven track record for being high quality, serviceable and wallet friendly. The Contour V2 post includes significant improvements to make things run smoother, last longer with simpler maintenance.
So what’s changed?
Brass keys- we have changed from pressed keys to cylindrical turned keys; these are easier to replace on servicing and allow for tighter tolerances reducing sideward play once the post is worn.
Stanchion and bushing diameter- we have increased the stanchion and diameter which helps load the bushings more evenly increasing durability
Added DU bushing- adding a third bushing in the mid cap means more bushing overlap resulting in increased stability of the stanchion.
What stayed the same?
Our bulletproof sealed cartridge is used throughout our internal dropper range. Our pressure adjustable XL cartridges of past have been replaced with fixed pressure cartridges which don’t require air top-ups and further improve reliability.
High end construction – Our droppers are still using 7075 alloy to ensure the right balance between strength, durability and weight.
What lever is best for me?
See the diagram in the image section for reference.
Under bar lever: This is our under bar lever that is suited to bikes with a 1X (single chainring up front) drivetrain. The lever sits in the position where the front shifter would have been and mimics the thumb action of a shifter. Note: some new lockout levers are positioned here, in this scenario use an over bar lever.
Over bar lever: This lever works best for bikes with 2X or 3X drivetrains where a front shifter is still used on the handlebar. This can be run on the left or right of the handlebar and works with nearly every setup.

CONTOUR DROPPER POST FEATURES
Our dropper posts use a simple serviceable design to ensure long lasting use. The upper seal, brass keys and bushings are all replaceable.Service intervals are between 6 months and 1 year depending on frequency of use. Service kits are available separately.
REPLACEABLE SEALED CARTRIDGE
A sealed cartridge allows for easy maintenance and can be replaced should the dropper post life wish to be elongated. Replacement cartridges are available separately.
I love bleeding my dropper post lever, said nobody ever. This is why the Lyne Contour uses a mechanical cable linked to a hydraulic internal system. This allows for easy cable routing and installation.
Using a hydraulic internal system means the rider can choose any height to lower the post to. No predetermined steps in height allow full control.
LIGHTWEIGHT & ROBUST CONSTRUCTION
Our dropper posts use high quality 7075 alloy that result in a robust lightweight structure. The stanchion is precisely machined and features a hard-anodised finish increasing durability in harsh conditions.
