Description

PNW made this post to honour your most adventurous days on the trail. From the Quadzilla climbs to the serpentine descents, the Loam Dropper capitalises on PNW’s best-in-class reliability in our shortest, lightest and most customisable package yet.

The Loam also features swappable silicone bands that hug the midcap and PNW offers these in a few different colour options.

The post comes with the black band as standard and the coloured bands are an optional add-on that we won't be stocking (sorry!)


Upgraded Travel Plans:

By shortening the overall post and adding 25mm of Tool-Less Travel Adjust PNW has guaranteed you more drop across a wider variety of frame designs, sizes and body types. This means more distraction-free descents with less awkward high fives from your saddle when the trail gets rowdy.

Under Pressure:

Slow and controlled or swift and poppy? Dial-in your dropper’s return rate with personalised pressure, courtesy of the Loam Post’s adjustable air cartridge. The posts come underinflated during shipping to preserve the cartridge so set the post to your desired air pressure (270-300psi) before installing your saddle.

Travel Adjust Feature:

The travel adjust system allows for a total of 25mm 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:

  1. Begin by lowering your dropper at or below the desired travel length (just make sure it’s not fully extended!)
  2. Unthread the midcap with your hand and slide it up to reveal the white DU Bushing.
  3. You’ll see negative numbers with corresponding notches machined into the post (each # represents decreasing travel.
  4. 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!)
  5. 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.

Specs:

  • Cartridge Style: Adjustable Air Cartridge
  • Routing Method: Internal (stealth)
  • Diameters: 30.9mm, 31.6mm, 34.9mm
  • Travel: 125mm, 150mm, 170mm, 200mm
  • Weight: 456g (125mm), 504g (150mm), 532g (170mm), 576g ( 200mm)
  • Seatpost Material: 7075 Alloy
  • Colour options: You can choose whatever colour you like - as long as it's black.
  • Lever Compatibility: Compatible with all PNW levers and most cable-actuated levers from other brands. (PNW posts are rear feed so the cable is clamped at the remote end).
  • No remote, cable or housing is included

What’s the difference between the Rainier Gen 3 and the Loam?

The Loam Post has a shorter actuator and more machining on the stanchion both of which work to create a shorter overall post. This allows for more travel in a larger variety of bike frames. Another difference is the cartridge. With the Rainier, you get a sealed “set-it-and-forget-it” cartridge. The Loam has the advantage of an adjustable air cartridge, where you can customise your return rate.

How often do I need to service the post?

As riding frequency and conditions vary, PNW does not have a strict service interval. Instead, they 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.

How do I set up the adjustable air cartridge?

The Loam dropper features an adjustable alloy cartridge that requires a high-pressure shock pump to setup. They come under-inflated during shipping to preserve the cartridge. To adjust the pressure do the following:

1. Before installing your saddle remove the clamp assembly and hardware.
2. Remove the rubber grommet covering the valve.
3. Manually actuate the post so it is in the fully extended position.
4. Thread the shock pump on the valve and inflate to 270-300psi for optimal performance.
5. Remove the pump and you are now ready to complete the install.

    PWN Dropper

    Great price on a great product.. short of dropping 4 hundred bucks on the name brand bling, these are all you need, wait for a sale like I did and save even more. PWN make awesome gear, when compared to a cheapo dropper you can see and feel the difference.

    MTB Direct are my go to for upgrade parts like this, fast postage, good comms, I'm always happy with my experience.

    PNW LOAM IR DROPPER POST - 170mm - SMOOOOOOTH AS BUTTER

    I don't quite know where to begin with this dropper.

    To Start, I order this on a Monday, and had the Dropper Post in hand on, Wednesday arvo. This was with your usual shipping. Quite honestly fastest I have received a package ever.

    Then comes the Dropper itself. It's about as smooth as butter and was one of the easiest installs ever. The lever activation is super light and responsive.

    Would definitely recommend this to someone who is looking for a new dropper post.
