HELIX Dropper Post 165mm
Ultimate USE always brings a product to market that is innovative and provides a genuine advantage to the rider. The Helix is no exception. Fundamentally simple, the British made Helix avoids the pitfalls of the air & oil systems currently. Utilising a helical shaft, its clutch is activated with a custom made, "mount anywhere", remote lever, allowing it to freely rise, fall and lock at any height. Maximum drop of 125mm or 165mm available.

USE has never taken a product to market that is not an innovative design providing a genuine advantage to the rider. Various design concepts were investigated but USE was never satisfied that it had a design that surpassed other brands; until the ‘Helix’ post.
The Helix design is fundamentally mechanical avoiding issues that plague other designs associated with air and oil pressure. Simplicity results in reliability.
Our post utilises a helix spindle that has to rotate when the post compresses or extends. A clutch is activated to enable the spindle to rotate freely or become locked, at any height. A simple solution to deal with the demands of todays riders.
Available in 125mm and 165mm versions, the post is activated with our custom designed lever, with multiple fitting options and almost infinite adjustment to suit.
