SHORTER THE BETTER
The redesigned Rainier is significantly shorter than our other posts. We scrubbed the overall length of the post providing some of the shortest insertion depths on the market.
HOW DOES TRAVEL ADJUST WORK?
Our travel adjust system allows for a total of 30mm travel reduction in 5mm increments. If you were riding that line between travel sizes you can now fine-tune the perfect fit by following the easy directions below:
- Begin by lowering your dropper at or below the desired travel length (just make sure it’s not fully extended!)
- Unthread the midcap with your hand and slide it up to reveal the white DU Bushing.
- You’ll see negative numbers with corresponding notches machined into the post (each # represents decreasing travel.
- Slide the DU bushing up and rotate it to align the black arrow with the amount of travel you would like to reduce, then seat the arrow into the machined groove. (Make sure it’s fit securely into these notches!)
- After pushing the DU Bushing back down, lower the midcap and hand tighten (no need to go overboard!) and ride off into the sunset with the perfect travel for you.

What is the tool less travel adjust system?
This system allows you the maximum drop for your post size. We accomplish this through a notched bushing under the midcap collar so you can dial in a more tailored fit.
How often do I need to service the post?
As riding frequency and conditions vary, we do not have a strict service interval. Instead, we recommend servicing your post if it starts to feel sticky/slows down. When it does come down to service it is a quick and easy, at home process.
What’s the difference between the Rainier Gen 3 and the Bachelor?
The main difference between the posts is the cartridge style. With the Rainier you get a sealed “set-it-and-forget-it” cartridge. The Bachelor has the advantage of an adjustable air cartridge, where you can customize your return rate.
