Orbea Digit Seatpost - A Dropper Alternative - 2016 Mountain Bike Components at Eurobike - Mountain Biking Pictures - Vital MTB

The ability to quickly adjust saddle height is the reason why dropper posts have done so well in recent years. So how do you take that easily repeatable concept and apply it to a more affordable traditional seatpost? Orbea found a clever solution in their new Digit seatpost. Here it is in action:

Range-limiting screws help you find upper and lower limits quickly, while the slotted backside keep the saddle aligned front to back.

The system is hundred of dollars cheaper and requires less maintenance than a typical adjustable dropper post. You'll find the Digit spec'd on Orbea's lower end complete bikes in 2016.
