[Press Release] – Zine introduces an ergonomic tuning button for the RockShox Reverb dropper post
Zine introduces the ZLoc FLOW button, a retrofittable, ergonomic tuning button, for the RockShox XLoc remote lever. The Flow button by Zine differs significantly from the traditional RockShox control lever, rounded edges, an enlarged base and the pressure point provide a noticeably more precise operation of the remote lever RockShox. The numerous details increase the ergonomics and thus the driving pleasure.
PRESSURE POINT DESIGN – The pressure point, a depression in the middle of the remote button, ergonomically follows the rounding of the tip of the thumb. The design ensures a precise pressure point on the remote button and at the same time more grip in the operation.
ERGONOMIC EDGE – Rounded edges offer more grip to perform the operation at any time.
POWER PEDAL – The horizontal pedal increases the footprint and maximizes power transfer to the lever.
MULTI MOUNT – No matter on which position your RockShox XLoc lever is mounted, the symmetrical design of the FLOW button fits at any position on the handlebar.
If the action on the trail is too big it happens that the remote button is not hit exactly in the middle and the operation has to be repeated. This incorrect operation and too late lowering in a dropper seatpost can lead to a crash. Therefore, the ZLoc FLOW Button was rounded off to 270° of the edge surface. The rounded edges provide enough grip to complete the operation.
The installation of the ZLoc FLOW Button on the control lever is very easy. The rubber sleeve can be pushed down without tools. The original button is attached with a screw and can be easily replaced by the FLOW Button without having to open the hydraulic system.
