The PNW FERN Dropper Post for Kids

by Jason Lorch

Now the little shredders of the world can have as much fun as the adults

Like all the best breakfast cereals, PNW’s all-new Fern Dropper Post is specifically designed for the kiddos. Building on the reliability and ease of PNW‘s standard droppers, the new Fern simply requires less weight and effort to drop the saddle. It’s simple, it’s brilliant.  Capitalizing on the reliability and ease of our standard droppers, the Fern simply requires less weight and effort to drop the saddle and get rowdy in the dirt.

Adults shouldn’t have all the fun. That’s why the all-new Fern Dropper Post from PNW Components is specifically designed with your little one in mind, taking less effort and less weight to drop that saddle.

Additionally, 5% of every Fern Dropper Post sold will be donated to Trips For Kids, an organization dedicated to providing access to cycling for all kids from all walks of life.

Pint Size Pressure

Kids Cartridge

Standard dropper posts require too much bodyweight to drop the saddle and too much force to actuate the lever – so even if your tot is eating their Wheaties every morning, they’re left out of the same benefits we all enjoy from adding a dropper to our rides. Our all-new Fern Dropper Post tackles this issue with a specifically designed cartridge to operate at lower pressures.*

Built To Last

From Bike to Bike

Unlike last year’s shoes, the Fern’s 27.2 diameter and external cable routing ensures your kiddo won’t be growing out of this post in one season. Plus, the Fern uses all the same technology and design from our reliable line of Pine Droppers, which are known for their durability, meaning this post is meant to last.

Easy Lever Actuation

Press Play

We took our notes from real-life parents who told us a typical dropper cartridge in the Fern tackles this problem by requiring less force to get the dropper to move up and down. This means you can pair this post with any of our levers and get the same drop, with less effort.
