[First Look] RockShox Reverb 1X Lever



Today RockShox released the new Reverb 1X lever. We got ahold of one a few days back and fit it to our post. The bleed procedure is a snap and it has a really solid feel. We’ll be putting it through a long term test over the coming months but for now, check out SRAM’s words in the press release below, then some details on the new piece.


[Press Release]

The all-new Reverb remote pairs the superior ergonomics of SRAM’s shifter design with low-lever-force hydraulic actuation to create the world’s best dropper-post remote. Its excellent ergonomics and light touch mean that riders of all ability levels can use their Reverb posts quicker, more easily and more often, for better ride control everywhere on the trail. And the new Reverb 1x Remote’s Bleeding EdgeTM fitting ensures that the periodic maintenance needed for optimum performance is about as hassle-free as working the remote itself.

Everyone asked for it and they got it. The 1X Reverb lever upgrade. Matchmaker compatible with 2-position inboard/outboard adjustment, lever body angle adjustment.

Bleed port on the left now using bleeding edge technology. On the right, the return speed is now adjusted via a T25 Torx as opposed to the old barrel adjuster style fitting.
Nice how the levers line up with one another.
Not so subtle branding but it is on the underside of the bike.
Mated to our 170mm travel Reverb Stealth and ready to go.
