German dropper seatpost specialist, Bike Yoke, has introduced an even bigger version of its Revive.
For those mountain bikers who desire to get even lower over their bike when descending, Bike Yoke has now obliged with its updated Revive.
With many frame brands trimming seat tubes, taller riders and those who want to rush the most technical terrain possible can now get lower than ever before.
The dropper seatpost market once peaked at 150mm, but now the stroke length ceiling is generally accepted to be 200mm. Bike Yoke had just gone a touch further and as such, the new Revive offers a significant 213mm of stroke.

Available for both the 30.9- and 31.6mm seat tube diameters, these new 213mm Revives have a minimum insertion depth of only 130mm, which makes them usable with a generous diversity of frames.
Beyond an increased stroke, Bike Yoke’s engineers have also redesigned the Revive’s stanchion, which now features a single-piece head.
Increasing the Revive’s drop has not altered is internals, which promises a very low maintenance threshold. Featuring an integrated release valve, the Revive allows for air migration to be purged, preventing hydraulic contamination and keeping the Bike Yoke droppers cycling with impeccable smoothness over a significant amount of time.
Bike Yoke has also enhanced the Revive 2.0’s controls, with the Triggy Alpha remote allowing for easy handlebar control real estate management. Direct mount compatibility is confirmed for SRAM, Shimano, Hope, Formula, Magura, Trickstuff and Hayes brakes.
Ergonomic enhancements with Bike Yoke’s new Triggy Alpha control allow for paddle angle adjustment and two sizes trigger surface sizes. For those riders who required a larger dropper post lever, there is a 7mm longer trigger paddle.
Weight grades for the Bike Yoke Revive 2.0 dropper seatpost vary between 465- to 640g, depending on seatpost diameter. Pricing starts at $320 and peaks at $380.
