Find out what makes the Wolf Tooth ReMote Dropper Lever better than the rest.
Since dropper posts are now found on the vast majority of mountain bikes, Wolf Tooth has made it its mission to solve common issues experienced with stock levers. The brand has had great success with this endeavour, leaving no stone unturned in its quest to create the best aftermarket dropper lever available.
Simple setup and adjustment
Wolf Tooth’s ReMote dropper cable is attached at the lever, making for quick and easy setup and adjustment. Unlike some other levers, which use a grub screw to secure the cable, the ReMote Dropper Lever uses a precisely machined cable path and clamping screw to secure the cable without damaging it. This setup also facilitates future adjustment if required.
The ReMote utilises a large 6702 sealed cartridge bearing in its lever pivot that provides smooth operation and modulation. This bearing pivots around a breakaway axle, which allows the lever to break away from its base in the event of impact, preventing damage to the lever itself. Replacement axles are inexpensive and readily available, so a crash that damages your equipment doesn’t have to damage your wallet.
A machined surface on the face of the ReMote ensures your thumb won’t slip, even in the worst conditions, while the low-profile design of the lever allows it to sit close to the handlebar, out the way of your knee in a crash situation.
Setting a high standard
In a world where new ‘standards’ of brake mount seem to appear far more often than we’d like them to, Wolf Tooth has done an impressive job of ensuring its lever is compatible with most brake mounting options, past and present, from Shimano to SRAM, Magura and Hope. Or, if you prefer the versatility of a separate clamp, a 22.2 hinged option is also available. The ReMote is compatible with all cable actuated dropper posts.
A dropper lever to depend on
Wherever possible, Wolf Tooth is committed to manufacturing in-house in the USA. This pledge gives the brand full control of the design, manufacture and assembly of its products, so that the product you receive will be exactly as intended, ready to perform to the level that you would expect it to.
