Kore is working hard on a dropper post, which although nearing the final stages of production is not quite ready to bare it all to the world. Details were scarce, other than to point out the obvious - it features an airspring and a newly redesigned head (that will also feature on traditional seatposts from the company). More as we get it!

Kore also introduced us to a completely redesigned grip. it features a single lockring and an internal sleeve that has been ergonomically cut out to provide a softer area of relief for the palms. The sleeve does not continue all the way out to the end of the grip, rather here the rubber of the grip itself thickens to provide solid grip on the bars and also to provide a slightly conical shape for the hands.

The grip area has been fully redesigned to allow the use of a softer compound all while actually improving reliability.

Following the trend towards longer top tubes and shorter stems, Kore are introducing a 30mm version of its Torsion direct mount stem. Offering 0 degrees rise and weighing in at 128 grams, it's available with BoXXer and FOX40 mounts.
