The integrated, mechanical seat post:
Maximum stroke - uncompromising performance - best feel
Our goal was to develop the perfect vario seat post. This inspired us to totally rethink the world of dropper seatposts. We have thrown away all conventional approaches and designed a dropper seat post that has never been seen before. You know the requirments on the bike trail – but the dropper seat post that will accompany you, is like never before. Because the NGS2 dropper seat post is more functional, more flexible and at the same time more stable and reliable than all telescopic seat posts that you have ever experienced before. Welcome to the new age of the dropper seat posts!
The Eightpins NGS 2 seat post not only differentiates from other products on the outside, but also from the inside. Where normal oil works as a holding or adjusting medium, Eightpins has only pure mechanics under the hood. The seat post tube is blocked every 6mm with the patented “Rapid Locking Unit” or released for lowering. The seat post blocks in both directions in the selected height. Dropping and locking the seatpost is done quickly with a clear haptic feedback. The Eightpins mechanic is so stable that even 600 kg (equals 1,322 lb) load will not cause any damage.
OVERLOAD ROTATION CLUTCH
The interface of the Eightpins seat post has an integrated overload clutch. This allows for a twist of the saddle in overload situations such as crashes. The twisted saddle can then be easily turned back into the right position by hand.

Eightpins integration. A step into the future
We only use one single tube for the drop function and the height adjustment. This makes the Eightpins dropper seat post up to 30% lighter in average compared to other products on the market. Depending on the size of the seat post, its actual weight varies from 511gr (XS with setback) to 595gr (XL with setback).
Easy height adjustment
The adjustment of the saddle height in the extended position is done with the patented height adjustment of the NGS 2. By turning the height adjustment actuator in the seat post head the seat post tube is separated from the piston rod and enables a simple and quick adjustment. The new Postpin interface design and the grooves at the seat post end extend the travel oth the Eightpins seat post. In this way, the travel and adjustment range can be expanded enormously.
Linear Air Spring
Pressing down the saddle should be quick and easy. Low counterforce has the decisive advantage that the center of gravity is not unnecessarily shifted upwards while riding. This increases performance and safety on the trail.
