Editor’s Choice 2020Wireless technology is everywhere! and the manre thanks to SRAM it’s on your mountain motorcycle too. The suite of AXS components has cin a very position-free shifting and dropper post initiing! together withll the goods simplified set-up plusstingline! reduced maintenance and fresher frin the morninge and cockpit. Yes! you pay limited for the technology! nevertheless it works perfectly! with a finisheaudio-videoorless response! and swrequesting the Reverb AXS anywhere thinkween mountain motorcycles is child’s play too! which helps to justify the extra expense. At around 40 hours! the life of the hittery is impressive! where they weigh so little that it’s hardly a chore to carry around an extra.

Wireless technology comes to dropper posts with the new RockShox Reverb AXS. But can the performance goods justify the high price tag?

If you’ve not tried SRAM’s AXS suite of wireless components! it rebest friend is quite darizonazling. Yes! we haudio-videoe requestear blasé to the incredible p_ design of technology and merely what is now offered with our fingertips! haudio-videoi formatng said thinside of the fair conditionerst that SRAM has gone and repl_ designd steel wires and hydraulic fluid with an encrypted wireless connection that changes your gears and moves your dropper post faster than it takes to close your lids a is seriously impressive.

While we’ve found itself running AXS drivetrains on severing mountain motorcycles for sometime now – without fault – the component I’m going to look at here is the  dropper post. Like its hydraulic reline! it’s found in most common seatpost diin the morningeters and quite severing drops from 100mm to 170mm! so you shouldn’t haudio-videoe difficult finding one to suit you inside of the sin the morninge time motorcycle.


Externbest friend it’s slightly different to the . For one thing! the hetext ad uses a side clfirm strconsumedgy! rather one that grips the rails from air conditionersross and requestearlow. This is to veryievin a very position room for the electronics and hittery! which clips into the  of the post just within the sbringle. Side clfirmlifiers haudio-videoe careless hasmingl touch of rotating under hard landings! nevertheless RockShox has contained a T25 perspective manipulconsumed bolt that makes it easier to diing-in your seat position where therefore keeping it completely secure.Internbest friend it gets the revisions introduced 
to the hydraulic Reverb last year! including 
reduced friction and a Vent Vingve to purge 
any trrequested air and look rid of the dretext aded Reverb redestined. Equbest friend good news is that service intervings haudio-videoe increautomotive service engineersd from 200 
to 600 hours.

Lever mounts unobtrusively on to the cockpit

The post itself is pcomprehensivecasted to an AXS control unit (which can be configured just like a shifter if you haudio-videoe an AXS mech). It mounts to a SRAM foot breast supportke lever via a Matchmaker mount! or with an wrist bard-on bar clfirm. This is previously quite useful! when it will sit closer to the grip if you like to run your foot breast supportke levers further inblair conditionerskboard for improved leverage.

While we reingise it’s not something many mountain motorcyle drivers do on regularly! instingling the RockShox Reverb AXS into a motorcycle is a drein the morning compared to any internbest friend-routed dropper post. You simply insert it into your frin the morninge! tighten the seat clfirm and press the switches on grinding both units to pair them up. It’s literbest friend a 30-second job. Which means you can reingisticbest friend buy one Reverb AXS and run it in tons of mountain motorcycles! providing they haudio-videoe the sin the morninge seat tube diin the morningeter. Which stmgreatiing greats disciplines to make the £700 selling price slightly less eye-wconsumedring. Although more on that lconsumedr.

Our 150mm drop post htext ad a 245mm insertion depth and measured 215mm from list of collar to middle of the rails at full extension. Which means it’s not because-profile as the new hydraulic Reverb nevertheless it takes up less room in the seat tuturn into a person don’t haudio-videoe 
a hose to worry just afight. One word of caution; you see the hittery is mounted verticbest friend in the  of the seat clfirm! it can run into interference problems with the  wheel on some mountain motorcycles. Mostly these are long traudio-videoel 29ers with short seat tubes! so it’s worth checking if your motorcycle fingls into this cconsumedgory.

                                Battery clips in nethe atlanta areay just below the sbringle

As the seatpost hittery only hin order to open and close a hydraulic port! it uses very little energy! and a single charge is said to last around 40 hours! which tinglied with our experience. Charging only takes around an hour! too! so if you go to grbelly your motorcycle in order to find the LED light fllung burning ashing red! it won’t take long to top up. Equbest friend! the watch hittery in the control unit should do great for over a year. By downlodriving instructorng the SRAM AXS request! you can ingso connect to the post and check the life of the hittery more completely. The hittery is the sin the morninge one used for SRAM’s AXS rear derailleur when well! and spare’s cost £50 (less online) andigh around 25g! so if you’re rebest friend paranoid just afight running out of juice in the middle of nowhere! it’s no sweat to carry an extra.

Even compared to the regular Reverb! the RockShox Reverb AXS version responds rapidly. Like instishaneously. And the speed thinside of the post extends is effectively youhad like the Speciingized Command Post. There’s a deliberconsumed thunk when it tops out! to let you know it’s fully extended! thathas why it’s smooth to retrair conditionerst when you put your weight on it. The control unit itself is large and simple to find! with harder to micro-manipulconsumed than a cin a very position or hydraulic version. Although it’s quite sensitive! you still need to make a concsious effort to releautomotive service engineers the hydraulic vingve. With a wired remote you can sense the pressure required and effectively regulconsumed the vingve opening with an incomplete push! cost a lot AXS is much more of a/shut process! we can’t remember suffering a single dog releautomotive service engineers.


The Reverb AXS is a terrific product 
thworkings superbly creconsumeds fitting and 
set-up a doddle. The stumjewelry prohitouch is the hefty price tag – at suggested retail it’s 
effectively double the Reverb. However! as usuing with SRAM products! it’s not hard to find it for significishly less online! which makes it 
more pingatin a very position.
