All three TranzX Dropper Posts share reliable, infinite adjustment functionality at various comfort levels. The two hydraulic models, JD-YSP02 Basic, with exterior cabling, and JD-YSP03 ICR, with interior cable routing, offer infinite hydraulic seat adjustment via handlebar lever control. The top-of-the-line, 2.4 GHz wireless version JD-YSP06 operates via micro motor – smooth and cable-free with convenient handlebar control. The elegant seat post head designs of all three models facilitate secure and easy saddle mounting.

JD-YSP02 - Basic Version
Travel:80 mm (length 350 mm) and 100 mm (length 400 mm)
Adjustment technology:Pneumatic, via remote lever on handlebar
Recommended maximum load:70 kg and 90 kg – choice of 2 models

JD-YSP03 - ICR Version
ICR (Internal Cable Routing) channels all wires from the bottom bracket into the down tube and, unseen from there, to the seat post. This precludes chafing on the legs or bike frame and eliminating cable looping – maintaining the bike’s clear, uncluttered design.
Travel:80 mm (length 350 mm), 100 mm (length 400 mm) or 120 mm (length 420 mm)
Adjustment technology:Pneumatic, via remote lever on handlebar
Recommended maximum load:70 kg and 90 kg – choice of 2 models

JD-YSP06 - Wireless Control Version
The wireless 2.4 GHz version is completely cable-free. This allows effortless installation and ride without the hassle of troublesome cables - a great and innovative step in retractable seat post technology.
Travel:80 mm (length 350 mm) and 100 mm (length 400 mm)
Adjustment technology:Via wireless transmission
Recommended maximum load:70 kg and 90 kg – choice of 2 models

    The only thing I see this having over the other current options is that it drops automatically without the need for you to sit on it. All the negatives of electric outweigh that though. I'll be stoked when somebody makes a cable actuated that drops on its own, till then, KS Lev

    I'm not a fan of having to replace or charge a battery on my bike. And that's a lot of weight to be carrying so high on the bike.

    Agreed, plus what happens when she runs out of juice on the trail, or you lose connection somehow? I'll stick with a cable. They haven't gotten in my way yet and I'm always in the woods trimming tree branches...

    Aren't there rules in UCI or USAC books about using electric parts?

    Ever heard of Di2? Or the new Lapierre suspension system that uses a computer to adjust the rear shock.

    Read the thread title:
    "First Wireless Dropper Post Developed by TranzX"
    Not has anyone heard of Di2 or thenew Lapierre suspension system that has nothing to do with wireless seatposts.
    That's my point, your comment is irrelevant to the topic.

    Seriously? His question was, "Are there rules about using electric parts?" Those are electric parts.
