OneUp Components V3 Remote

PRESS RELEASE: OneUp Components


Introducing the V3 Remote, a new lighter action remote with a replaceable thumb pad and integrated cable port. Available in 7 colours, all major clamp standards and as a remote only option so you can reuse your existing clamp.

In stock and available now from $45.00 USD.

OneUp Components V3 Remote
Integrated cable port in the replaceable rubber thumb pad.


A grippy rubber thumb pad improves lever feel and can be colour matched to your bike. An integrated cable port includes cut marks that take the guess work out of cutting your cable and lets you tuck the cable away for a super clean look. Also fits cable ends. Thumb pads are easy to replace and available individually so you can change colours to match your new bike.

OneUp Components V3 Remote
New cammed actuator.


The new lever cam reduces the thumb force needed to actuate your dropper post. It requires 27% less actuation force than our V2 remote. Upgrading your remote is a quick and easy way to improve the feel of any mechanical dropper post for less than $50.

OneUp Components V3 Remote
Available in all major clamp standards and 7 colours.


Colours: Black, Red, Blue, Green, Orange, Purple, Turquoise
Clamp Options: 22.2, MMX, I-Spec-II, I-Spec-EV

 They are doing a pretty solid job across the product line, but what OneUp dropper owners desperately need is *not* remote or travel upgrades but an option to *upgrade dropper collar w/ better seals.* The current design gets sticky every couple weeks, b/c the upper seal burps all of its grease within a half dozen rides of application, and then gums up with dirt. Please, pretty please put 100% of your engineering focus on fixing the Achilles' heel of your design OneUp! My previous Reverbs only required service once or twice a year: my two OneUps require regreasing twice per month!

 @powturn: I've only had issues with having to re-pressurize every few months. Are you perhaps thinking its greasing.... but really you are compensating for lower air pressure, or adding pressure during your service?
  • 29 3
 @powturn: Or just get a Bikeyoke Revive! I look up every year or two and think “I should probably service that, but its working great”. And I have friends that skipped that step… and all ours work flawless
  • 22 0
 @maestroman21: nah I get what powturn is saying. MyOneUp dropper does the same thing. I still think it's awesome and substantially better than my old reverb but it is a bit annoying to undo the collar every few weeks and apply new grease, on top of always wiping away the old grease on the upper part of the post. Not the end of the world but it would be nice if the seals were improved on the next version.
  • 14 0
 @maestroman21: I've had 3 of these posts over last 3 years and they all suffer from the exact same flaw. Have done full teardowns & air ups of both current posts this summer. Both have fresh bushing kits, seals, and the exact pin size they need to dial in smooth travel w/ no play when fully lubed. The problem is not with any other internal components, it is the seals: they do not properly retain grease, no matter how deep or judiciously it is applied. Once all grease has been burped onto stanchion, they begin to squeal, and then get sticky as they pick up progressively more dust & grit. The only remedy is to re-apply grease every 10 rides to keep them moving and lessen (but not completely stop) the noise.
  • 16 0
 @powturn: Yup. Love that the OneUp in the shortest design with the lowest stack but reliability isn't awesome....The regreasing needed and dropping air pressure are both annoying for sure. I've needed a new cartridge once a year too.

 My OneUp dropper has been working great with RSP Slick Kick grease. Very minimal burping, and stays smooth for a few months. What I don't like is the amount of play. I just installed oversized pins, but there is still a lot of play. It has so much side to side play that it's noticeable when i'm climbing in the saddle and moving around a bit more.

 @baxterbike: After two dead OneUps I swore no more and got a Revive. It's next-level good, for sure!

Then the 240mm came out... ugh. First world tall people problems, suckered into another OneUp lol.

That said: have seen Sacki recommend you *really* should periodically service the revive even if it's not presenting issues to save worse headache later.

 @LokiTheCat: Interesting, I have 5 in my household with the oldest being 3 years. never had to open it up yet.. All of them seeing all 4 seasons, all temperatures, and thousands of km's. I guess I got lucky.

 @powturn: I had this and I sanded some material off the nylon shim that sits under the seal head between the post and housing. I took material off the inner circumference and ever since have had zero problems other than needing to re pressurise every 6 months.

 @powturn: I’ve fond the latest ones are better.

Also tried a lot of lubricants, use RockShox Dynamic Sael Grease on the regular bike, a little Fox Blue Seal Oil on the fat bike (winter use only).

 @LokiTheCat: I currently own two of these that have been transferred to 2 different bike’s each. I have ordered the rebuild kit but have yet to need them. They make no noise and move up and down perfectly . Maybe use different grease?
  • 5 0
 I can't say if it's the seals or the air pressure leaking but I have a OneUp droppers on my hardtail and my partner's and every ride they need special attention. I have BikeYoke on two full-sus bikes and they always work, no thought required. The OneUp also cannot be slammed cause the pressure from the clamp even at less than recommended torque causes the post to bind.
  • 4 1

This! Why I replaced all my OneUp droppers for PNW Loam droppers. Similar simple design with better sealing I have found. OneUp a smidge faster in actuation in comparison, but with Wolftooth light action lever, speed ends up about the same. Loam lever no good (slow) so hopefully the OneUp lever better actuation
  • 2 0

I had a similar clamping issue and it turned out to be a defective post with the guide bushings not aligning properly. One up asked for my serial number, and promptly sent me a new post free of charge.

To note it was a V1 post and now I’m hassle free on a V2 post.
  • 1 0
 @lone-ranger: they were both replaced (before V2 came out) and the issues persisted so it just seemed to be how they were. Good to know that V2 works better.
  • 1 0
 @powturn: My one up V1 does an ok job of staying smooth for maybe 4 months, but I pull out all the dirt out of the seal with a drop of oil after every ride.

Seals are super easy to lube. Not enough trouble to complain about, really.

 @HollyBoni: Pull out the cartridge and apply 2 fresh layers of electrical tape 40mm from the end. That and the oversized pin kit made mine completely rattle / movement free.

 We really like that lever. The OneUp remote has a cable cut guide, cable port and is compatible with any MMX style clamp. A replaceable rubber thumb pad means you can update the colour whenever you want. It also makes it much easier for dealers to have all the remote colours in stock.

Cool to give the loam lever the nod but still state the differences. Good reply

 @Yody: probably very similar but OneUp is way cheaper. $55 vs $89 when I went online and PNW wanted $45 for shipping. OneUp also gives back to my local community (S2S).

 At this point I might be heading towards being a OneUp fanboy just because I have yet to buy anything from them that has caused me any issues. I have composite and aluminum pedals, 2 droppers on 2 diff bikes, Bikepump, EDC tool and Carbon bars. I am sure that this will be a nice addition to any new bike but for now I see no reason to replace my wolftooth ... yet
  • 2 0
 Same. I don’t think there’s another cycling brand that’s earned my trust like OneUp has. Started with a couple of the original 10s cassette extenders and since then I’ve bought four V2 droppers and levers, a handful of bash guards and chainguides, and a EDC tool and pump. All of it has just worked and when I’ve needed random small parts (lost a seatpost clamp nut, an extra dropper cable end cylinder) when buying something else they’ve hooked me up.

Hell, I’d even placed an order Sunday night for a new dropper lever and after I saw this launch announcement I emailed them and they cancelled my order so I could change it to a V3. Products that work and people who treat you like a fellow person. That’s how you earn brand loyalty.

 The V1 lever was my favorite but the V2 is very good as well. The only problem I’ve experienced is that while tightening the cable screw, it pulls the cable out of the lever slightly, leaving a bit of a slack dead spot in the lever actuation before the tension on the cable catches up. Does this new design address this?
  • 21 0
 just turn the barrel adjuster?
  • 2 0
 @senorbanana: i've used the barrel adjuster but sometimes it causes the post to actuate without any pressure. Probably just an issue finding the perfect balance (it isn't really a big deal) but it seems like the screw should be on the opposite side of the cable to avoid the problem in the first place. It also tries to un-twist the cable as a result, which is not ideal.
  • 1 0
 @twonsarelli: I know what you mean, the screw is not on the self-tightening side. But I've found it works pretty well if you keep firm tension on the cable while tightening the cable screw. Or starting with the barrel adjuster loose and taking up any slack
  • 1 0
 @grahamar: yeah for sure. Like I said, it’s a minor issue but seems like it could be easily solved. I run oneup droppers in both bikes and double checked after senorbanana mentioned that. One of them I had wound the barrel adjuster enough to catch up to the slack but for some reason I hadn’t done that on the newer post. Just gave it a couple turns and problem solved. Almost like that’s what the barrel is for… haha
I guess it is one of those brain fart moments
  • 1 0
 I got the V2, am I the only one that misses a bit of ajustment to angle it forward/backwards? No matter what I do I always get a bit weird line, so much that I broke the barrel adjuster, ieven broken works fine but looks like it would be great the option to twist it a bit. Compared to my break line it runs more parallel to the bars.

I loved my V1 remote but it had a silly bolt arrangement and only Wolftooth seemed to make adaptors to fit Shimano, I changed to Hope brakes and the adaptor wouldn't fit. Sold the adaptor and remote and bought a Shimano XTR dropper lever which is actually really nice but would have a OneUp again...
  • 1 0
 But does the I-Spec-EV mount actually work with anything but the XTR levers? That's the problem third parties have been running into. The channel is shorter on the clamp and thus can't rotate very far. The Shimano lever is designed differently and isn't as difficult to position.

 We got stung with that early on. The current EV clamp has excellent range of motion.

 @snokarver: I had the same concern and got in touch with OneUp about it because the website only showed photos of a version that clearly wouldn’t work with my SLX levers. They assured me that they had a new version and updated the website. I have a couple now, on Deore and SLX brakes, and they work perfectly.

 Am I the only one regularly smashing my knee into the remote? Be nice if they didn't stick down below the bars so much, I can get my thumb right up next to the bars easily enough and it doesn't take THAT much force to trigger the post so please tuck it in and make it a bit less knee mangling.

 Get a bike with more reach/top tube length

 Either your bike is hella short or you’re waaaaaay too far forward.

Banging knees was common 20 years ago when the stems were 100+mm and the top tubes were correspondingly shorter. Can’t say I’ve done it (on the MTB) in years.

 @wyorider: Sorry wasn't clear, I meant on small "crashes", you know just little stuff where you slip off or have to suddenly plant your leg forwards to save something. All the controls seem to have very little consideration of crash ergonomics in their design.

 its a nice upgrade but the PNW lever is still the winner IMO in terms of build quality, for the slot for your cable I would always be inclined to use a crimp, tucking it away is not going to prevent unraveling ...

 Yep. I’ve recently installed one on one of my bikes. Comments section recommended it, I have no regrets after buying it. It works perfectly with the bike yoke revive that I bought to replace the one up dropper that decided to give up mid ride. That was a long morning getting 20km back to my car standing up most of the way.

 I really like this remote too, though the first one I bought came as a loose collection of parts in a bag because they couldn't assemble it at the factory due to someone forgetting to drill and tap the hole for the adjuster. Must have realised the mistake at assembly and just shoved it in the bag anyway...

 My wife has the Lev Integra and the lever is indeed terrible. The cable nipple is at the lever end and a grub screw barrel at the post. I'm planning on either running the cable nipple at the post or just cutting the nipple off and clamping the cable at both ends. OneUp comment higher up that is does fit the KS so hopefully it'll work.
