The Wolf Tooth ReMote LA, or Light Action, adds another option to their class-leading ReMote line of dropper remotes, solving all common dropper remote complaints in a compact, ergonomic, and sturdy package.  The ReMote LA is a longer lever armed version of their current remote that is optimal for dropper posts with a harder pull or for riders that just prefer a really light actuation feel.  It reduces the force to actuate a dropper by nearly a third vs the standard ReMote

Beginning with a long list of rider and mechanic requests, the Wolf Tooth team set out to address each and every one.  Based on rider feedback and tailored to work with some posts’ stiffer internal springs, the ReMote LA is also the choice of those with thumb injuries or reduced hand strength.  From its hassle-free installation to smooth ball bearing action to engineered failure point, the lightweight ReMote leads in every category. 

If you need the matchmaker bracket be sure to add it to your order.

    ReMote Lever:

    • Route cable housing from dropper post to ReMote so as to ensure smooth bends, sufficient room for free handlebar movement. Secure so as not to interfere with suspension, wheels, rider, or other moving parts
    • If your dropper post has a cable fixing clamp at the post end:
      • Cut barrel from cable
      • Fasten cut cable end at dropper post according to manufacturer’s instructions
    • Screw barrel adjuster fully into ReMote body
    • Use 2.5mm hex key to back cable clamping screw and captive washer 2-3mm out of ReMote lever
    • Run cable through housing to ReMote and through ReMote barrel adjuster
    • Route cable through groove, under cable clamping screw/washer, and out behind lever
    • Pulling cable snug, use torque wrench and 2.5mm bit to tighten cable clamping screw to 1-2Nm
      • Cable may loosen slightly- this is expected and part of the self-tightening orientation of the clamping hardware
      • Do not overtighten.  Screw head is designed to fail before lever threads are damaged.
    • Use barrel adjuster to remove slack from cable
      • Some posts require a small amount of play at the lever- refer to manufacturer’s  instructions for setup guidelines
      • A too-tight cable may result in seatpost slippage or damage
      • If slack cannot be removed, loosen cable clamping screw and return to previous step.
    • Use M3 hex key to loosen lateral adjustment screw and move to preferred lever position.
      • Lever assembly may be snug on base and require screw removal prior to adjustment
    • Use torque wrench and 3mm hex bit to tighten lateral adjustment screw to 2-3Nm.
    • Test dropper post function, adjusting barrel adjuster to remove excessive play or tailor engagement point.
    • Trim cable such that end sits entirely behind lever
    • Install cable crimp to prevent fraying
    • Go for a ride!

    View Installation Instructions
  • UpFront cable fixing: The dropper cable is attached at the lever, making setup and adjustment quick and easy.  Simply secure cable at seatpost using stock barrel or cable clamp and route to bar for a significant reduction in installation time and frustration.
  • Large-diameter ball-bearing pivot: An industry first, the ReMote uses a massive 21mm sealed cartridge bearing for smooth operation and unparalleled modulation.
  • Cable-kind clamp: A precision-machined cable path and custom clamping screw with captive washer won’t damage cables like more common set screws. As an added bonus, cables can be cut to length and crimped prior to securing.
  • Integrated brake lever mounting: The ReMote’s 6061 aluminum mounts attach cleanly and securely to Shimano I-Spec (A, B, or II) and SRAM MatchMaker X brake levers. Bar-mount clamps will be available during the third quarter of 2016.
  • Low-profile lever: The ReMote lever sits close to the bar, minimizing the distance the thumb must be removed from the grip while reducing the likelihood of knee contact in technical terrain.
  • Integrated cable adjustment: The ReMote’s solidly-mounted barrel adjuster makes on-the-fly adjustments quick and easy while eliminating the rattles caused by common inline cable adjusters.
  • Breakaway axle pivot: Crashes are bad- but expensive crashes are worse.  That’s why the ReMote features an engineered failure point, allowing the lever to break away from its base in the event of a crash.
  • High-traction lever: A machined surface ensures that control is not lost- even in the worst of conditions.
  • Broad compatibility: The ReMote has been tested and approved for use with KS, Thomson, Fox Transfer, RaceFace, Easton, Specialized Command, and Giant Contact cable-actuated dropper posts.
  • Made in the USA: Wherever the capabilities exist, Wolf Tooth is committed to domestic manufacturing.  From lever to packaging, 65% or more of each ReMote is made in the USA.
