Lyne Components is a South African based business. They currently offer a range of dropper posts with carbon wheels and other components coming in the near future.

 

The Contour dropper posts feature 100mm or 120mm of infinite adjust travel. Models are available for both internal or external routing. The internal mechanism is hydraulic (which can be replaced for easy servicing) while the operating mechanism is mechanically operated. The range includes four models for 30.9 mm and 31.6 mm seatpost sizes. The Contour is available online for R2,199.

Five Ten Kestrel Lace

Following on the successes and failures of the original Kestrel, Five Ten have have developed the Kestrel Lace. A clipless shoe aimed at trail and all mountain riders looking for a shoe more relaxed in style and build than the race inspired original Kestrel.

 

As the name suggests, the Kestrel Lace does away with the performance focused BOA closure system in favour of a more traditional lace and velcro strap option. The super stiff carbon shank has also been removed and replaced by a more compliant nylon shank.

Five Ten also developed a new rubber compound for the sole. They promise this will rid the Kestrel Lace of the delaminating issues that plagued earlier models of the original Kestrel.

 

Get in touch with a Get Stoked dealer is you want to know more about the Kestrel Lace or any other Five Ten products.

Looking forward to the long-term test review of the Lyne dropper post

Yeah, Get Stoked's website doesn't really have a very extensive list of dealers...

 

That said, I would love to know what the 11 speed cassette would go for.

Is the Lyne a SA developed/manufactured product or is it a generic product that is simply rebranded?

iRide, Jul 01 2016 03:25

Why have I never heard of Lyne?? Looks like a rad compnay and will be great to support a SA bike brand if their products are good!

I can vouch for the Contour Dropper Post. Been using it for 4 months now and it works brilliantly! Do yourself a favor guys!

Map never loaded on my browser (PC Chrome). Didn't work in IE either. Tried in Firefox and it seemed to work. No issues on Chrome and Firefox on my android though. Thanks.

Agreed, that's a bit too much for my pocket, but I suppose at the moment there still is a gap in the market for an extended range cassette. Things will change once Sram's Eagle trickles down to GX levels.
