The 2011 X-Fusion Hilo is a telescoping post that uses hydraulic mechanism and oil flow to control the height of the seatpost. It also uses a single bolt head for adjustment on the fore/aft position and angle. It also has an air spring to extend the post and features a double key-way system.
The Hilo has a barrel adjuster at the post’s back that lets you manage the cable tension of the post. It has a total drop of 100mm/4″ and weighs 620 grams. It features a compact remote which comes in sizes of 30.9, 31.6 and 27.2.
The 2011 X-Fusion Hilo functions with a simple push of the activation lever. This will open a cable that serves as the oil passage. The oil is then free to cycle up or down inside the tube. Releasing the lever will close the cable, locking the position and stopping the oil flow.
