A seatpost with less potential for failure

It looks and weight are fairly standard but what's intriguing about this dropper post is the bit you can't see. A novel internal design claims to offer better reliability than the competition, with a hydraulic mechanical hybrid locking system holding the post in place. Race Face has found this to be a more solid way to support body weight, with less potential for failure over time. Lower internal air pressures and the use of static, rather than dynamic, seals are also said to further boost reliability.

We're testing the Turbine at the moment so we'll report back as to whether it's as reliable as claimed.
