At Sea Otter this year Marzocchi had their new dropper seat post called the Espresso Push Dropper (EPD), on display for people to check out. The adjustable seat post currently offers 125mm of travel, and will be available in July. Sizes are 30.9/31.6.

The post has some nice clamps and seemed to hold the seat well in the quick parking lot test we did. The post was easy to actuate and wasn’t too fast or too slow. They will be including an adapter to add air as well to speed it up if you want a really fast post. Positioning wise, you can stop the EPD at any point in its travel. There is an external and internal model available.

The hydraulic post is actuated through a traditional cable for easy routing and reliability. The finish on the EPD matches up with Marzocchi’s Espresso coating as well so if you’re running Marzocchi parts it will look pretty clean. Pricing is still TBD but expect pricing to be in line with other quality adjustable seat posts.

Deity has come a long way in a short time and they’ve been refining their products with rider feedback for some time now and it shows in their final product.

For 2015, Deity has launched a number of stellar video edits with their athletes that we’ve all enjoyed.

The recently announced Deity Bladerunner pedals were on display at Sea Otter in additon to a number of other new Deity products. Details on the Bladerunner pedals can be seen in the earlier post we did on these pedals., 2016 Renthal Integra 2 Stem, Marzocchi EPD Dropper Seatpost, 350 Plus NCR, Deity TMAC Signature Pedals, Micro Stem, BladeRunner, and more

Moving into the handlebar territory, there’s been a demand for higher rise handlebars. With wheel sizes going up, headtubes shrinking, and tracks getting steeper it’s no surpise the rise in handlebars has been more desired.

The Blacklabel handlebar is available in a 25mm and a 38mm rise now and we’ve been pleased with this handlebar in the past. The bar is designed for Downhill, Enduro, and All Mountain riding with a 787mm width that can be cut down if desired. In addition to these two new rises, the bar is also available in a 15mm rise. 9 x 5, 31.8mm clamping, and a lifetime crash replacement plan.

It fits the standard boxxer platform that every manufacturer is doing now. The graphics have a flip flop design. Speaking of the graphics they’ve got a high polished look that has a good amount of pop to it without being overbearing.
