The Easton Haven Dropper is impressively light at only 545g and boasts machining of the highest order, as would be expected from Easton.

Here you’ll find our recent comparison test of the best mtb dropper post.

The Haven features the same DropLoc technology as used in the Fall Line post, licenced from 9point8, and this is a good thing as the mechanical brake works exceptionally well. Like the 9point8, installation is more involved and care is needed to follow the instructions to the letter, especially when it comes to cutting cable length and ensuring the retaining screws are evenly inserted. Once set up, the tool-free quick-release connector allows the post to be removed easily without affecting the cable tension. The simple, twin-bolt inline seat clamp is clean and stylish in design, and we also like the addition of graduated angle marks to help with adjustment.

The remote is nicely shaped, falling easily to hand with a very smooth action. We also like the addition of a section of rigid hose to route the cable neatly past the brake lever. Easton also sell a shifter-style remote which can be colour-coordinated, but of course, this pushes the already-expensive post even higher. In use the post was absolutely reliable, even on sub-zero mornings that can play havoc with some posts. The remote lever action was smooth and consistent throughout the testing, and stripping the post down revealed easy-to-service internals should problems arise. We like the low internal air pressure, putting less demand on the seals, and even after many months we did not experience any play or issues. The Easton Haven dropper post is reliable, lightweight, and very well machined, perfect if you want to stay on-brand for your finishing components.
