As evidenced in our Artisan Dropper Lever post from a few months ago, it’s hard to beat the aesthetics, craftsmanship, and incredibly smooth and solid feel of PAUL Components’s 22.2mm Dropper Trigger. So we’re excited to see a 31.8mm option for drop-bars that appears to feature the same level of quality. In effort to accomplish the best possible cable routing scenario for this model, PAUL used a radiused actuator design to allow the cable housing to exit the perch at a 90^ angle to the bars. Following the lead of the 22.2 lever, the 31.8 Trigger features a double-stacked sealed cartridge-bearing design to give it an extremely smooth lever feel, eliminate any play or slop, and provide maximum durability and serviceability of the pivot. To top it off, the 31.8mm Dropper Trigger has a hinged clamp to allow easy installation without the removal of your handlebar tape or brake lever. It also features a small barrel-adjuster for fine tuning. Here are the specs and some pics.
