Product Description

The new GravityDropper Turbo LP is replacing the GravityDropper Turbo, which came out in 2007. The GravityDropper Turbo is no longer available. Introduced at the 2012 Interbike Expo, the GravityDropper Turbo LP has now officially replaced the GravityDropper Turbo. Key differences in the two models are as follows:

  • Lower profile unit that is rotated 90° resulting in cleaner cable routing
  • Requires 1/4 inch less exposed seat post in order to ride each drop length
  • Upgraded 2024 aluminum resulting in a 500% increase in strength
  • New more flixible cable housing for better cable routing
  • More clearance for the back tire
  • Turbo LP unit now bolted to the post instead of bonded
  • 17 gram reduction in weight

Strengths:    Simple, Solid and takes a beating.

Weaknesses:    It is a little heavy.

Bottom Line:   
I went with this setup because I weigh 285 so I was worried other posts crapping out on me. This this has taken a beating for about a year now and still is going on. I will say on about the first 10 rides the cable stretch some but after that its not had an issue. Also I did remove the rubber boot already, it still keeps on rocking.

Strengths:    Simple, efficient, the lightest of all I believe and it works great!!!

Weaknesses:    Not the prettiest, but that's all! if gravity dropper works in esthetics they probably bit all of them by far...

Bottom Line:   
I really think this dropper is one of the best out their, if not the best, if you don't mind esthetics like me, go for this one you wont regret!!
I have tried the Kind Shock Lev which is great and works great too, its a lit of bit heavier and looks nicer but has plenty of small parts which makes me doubt for long term durability...

Strengths:    The best dropper in the history of dropper posts. Enough size options to fit any bike. Superior customer service and made in the USA.

Weaknesses:    If you need to be nit picky, they boot is ugly. I removed mine.

Bottom Line:   
Why deal with a stupid, complicated pneumatic post when you can have such a reliable, time-tested product. If you do manage to break it five years down the road, GD will rebuild it for you at minimal cost or ship you parts to fix it yourself (which is very easy to do BTW).

Strengths:    Reputation of previous models. Simple to install. Large variety of sizing options, great for us shorter riders. Good customer support. I was uncertain which size to order, just called up Caleb from sales and he got me set up.

Weaknesses:    Cost compared to some products. Like most reviews of previous models, the boot is not my favorite but once you see improvement in your downhill riding, who cares.

Bottom Line:   
I am short guy riding a small Superlight 29, had issues finding post that would fit me. Most brands needed more seatpost showing than I had on my set up. Gravity Dropper has large variety of products to fit my needs. I have 2 inch drop on 30.9 x 350mm seat post. Very easy to install right out of box, only issue is that the guides on my frame required me to remove on bolt of rear shock mount, but took less than 10 minutes to install including mounting saddle.

GD Turbo LP vs KS Supernatural 27.2

I know there are tons of info and threads on droppers, but I am still confused on what to get. I have narrowed it down to two that I am considering. I have an older bike with a 27.2mm seatpost tube. The tube is really short, so the longest I can get is 350mm. I am stuck with very slim picking ... Read More »
