Crank Brothers Joplin 4R Seatpost with Remote :: Seatposts :: Saddles & Seatposts :: MTB Parts :: Calgary Cycle Online

By: Calgary Cycle Online  09-12-2011

Riders that tread the middle ground between cross-country and downhill often find themselves looking to quickly and easily modify the saddle height for optimum pedaling efficiency and optimum handling efficiency. The Crankbrothers Joplin 4R adjustable seatpost offers that flexibility to have both. A higher saddle yields more efficient power transmission, but a lower seat height results in better weight distribution and maneuverability for jumps, turns, and drops.

Originally launched as the Speedball R post from Maverick Bikes. This remote version features a joystick that mounts to your handlebars. Now neither hand has to leave the bars to move the seat. And the cool part is, the joystick can mount on top of the bar, on the bottom, in the middle…wherever makes sense for your own setup. Plus you can move the joystick in any direction to activate the post.

The Joplin 4R seatpost's hydraulic action allows you to instantly fine tune your seat height, and therefore your riding position, which unlocks a whole new class of riding.

Everyone has stopped and dropped the seat down for a gnarly descent before. The Joplin 4R is the same concept, only it allows you to adjust without stopping–or even slowing down, and to any height within a range of 4”. So go ahead and drop your seat a couple inches for that 30ft technical section. Go ahead and raise your seat a centimeter for that long climb. Go ahead and lower it just slightly for that great winding tree section, then pop it right back up without even losing your momentum. Riders that use Joplin R now, tell us that this simple innovation has opened up a whole new world of riding to them. Now, there’s no penalty at all for adjusting the seat to the perfect spot for the terrain you’re on, and that spices up every ride!
