Strengths:    Good pricing, neutral color (in case you care), simplicity, easy fit, light, 125mm travel.

Weaknesses:    Not reliable, tend to leak air and oil, lot of play.

Bottom Line:   
I have been using my Hilo 125 for over a year now. I do like my X-Fusion dropper but I wish that it was more reliable. When it works, it does the job done right by going up at a decent speed and locking the seat height where I want it to be, no issues with that.

The downs; well, I need to rebuild that thing for a third time (with complete seal kit) and it seems that nobody has the seal kit in hands! The internal hydraulic valve gave up on me on the trail the first time, and the second time the shock won't hold air. This time, I've been noticing oil leaking from everywhere before I lost all air pressure. I feel like trying something different but droppers' options are limited as I do not want a remote and extra stuff on the handlebar.

Strengths:    Durability. Dependability. Cable remote is without issues. 25 lbs of air, that's it. Price.

Weaknesses:    A bit heavier than some. A tiny bit of play rotation wise.

Bottom Line:   
This seat post has been incredibly durable for the last year I have owned and used it. The cable actuated infinite position lever is very thumb friendly in the fact that you don't have to be exact on it to get it to go up and down. After about 6 months of use, I had to add air to it and about every 6 months or so, it will lose about a half inch of height during a longer ride. Just add psi to 25 lbs and you are good to go for another half a year. The price is super competitive as well and X Fusion has great customer service.

Strengths:    Wonderful to have adjustment whilst flying along trails

Weaknesses:    Tiny bit of twisting play in the seat. Don't notice with you bum, only with hands so not a major issue. Seat clamp bolt has to be done up super tight to stop it moving - you will need Fiber Grip!

Bottom Line:   
Great product - fitted it to my Trance X3 - only 1 month in so we'll see how it goes long term, loving it so far.
