Wolf Tooth Components has introduced a novel solution for gravel bike enthusiasts looking to install a mechanical dropper seatpost. Their latest offering, the Wolf Tooth ReMote Drop Bar Lever, is designed to seamlessly integrate with your gravel bike. This innovative lever allows for effortless cable pulling from any hand position, ensuring compatibility with standard drop bars and a wide range of mechanical dropper seatposts.
Thoughtfully engineered to be mounted inside the handlebar, the ReMote Drop Bar Lever avoids interference with your brake lever and front shifter, particularly beneficial for those using a 2x drivetrain system. Its unique design features a clamp that secures around the drop section of the handlebar, with the closure positioned strategically to maintain the thumb and finger paddles in close proximity to the bar.
A key feature of this lever is its rotation mechanism, supported by two 11mm Enduro cartridge bearings instead of traditional bushings. This design choice results in a remarkably smooth and robust operation, eliminating any flex during use. Whether you're riding on the hoods and need to pull the lever up with your fingers, or you're in the drops and prefer to push it down with your thumb, the lever offers unparalleled ease of use.
Installation is straightforward, with the cable attaching via a bolt at the bottom of the pivot. The cable end is neatly concealed behind the front wing, aligning with Wolf Tooth's commitment to a Right to Repair philosophy. All components of the lever are available for individual purchase as well.
Weighing in at a mere 37 grams (excluding the cable and housing), this lever is a lightweight addition to your setup. While it does not come with a built-in inline barrel adjuster like Wolf Tooth's mountain bike ReMote dropper levers, the company recommends adding one. Available exclusively in black, the ReMote Drop Bar Lever is priced at $64.95.
