RockShox’s Reverb adjustable seatpost marked a breakthrough moment for dropper posts; simply because it’s one of the most impressive we’ve had the chance to use.

Never a company to rest on its laurels, RockShox has just released the Stealth, a variation of the Reverb that allows for the hydraulic hose to be routed inside the frame, creating a much cleaner look than a hose dangling along the top tube of the frame.

To do this RockShox modified the internals and the hydraulic hose now exits from the bottom of the post allow it to be passed down through the seat tube. This requires modification to the frame, and so far only Trek and Scott have modified frames to be compatible with the Stealth.

Reverb Stealth will be available exclusively on select Scott and Trek bikes for Model Year 2012. Scott will spec the Stealth on the Genius LT 10 and 20, while Trek will provide specific model details in July.
