Thomson Elite Dropper Seatpost
The Thomson brand is synonymous with precision and longevity. Many riders choose Thomson components even in the face of added weight. They're that good. While you could supply your mountain bike with a Thomson stem, seatpost and seatpost collar, you did not have the ability to stay loyal to the brand if you needed a dropper seatpost because they didn't exist; until now.
Thomson, inextricably influenced by the aerospace industry, knows how to CNC as well as anyone today. Their leading and innovative designs are highly lauded by the industry and riders alike. So, when news came out that a highly anticipated dropper seatpost was on the way to production, you could imagine the excitement felt. The Thomson Elite Dropper Seatpost does not disappoint.
Their cartridge based system is designed to have the longest service life in the industry. If repair is needed it is fast, affordable and simple. Every single component is the best available. Custom made Norglide bearing bushings, custom made Trelleborg O-Rings and seals, Thomson saddle clamps and fasteners, Motul Oil. It features a one piece forged inner post for strength and reliability; no joint to loosen and fail. Actuation is by cam so the rider gets a smooth, variable speed and height without resorting to a complicated, damage prone hydraulic actuator; no bleeding required. Finally, the return speed is damped in the last 15mm of upward travel to be gentle on your "seating" area! This is the drop post good enough to be called a Thomson Elite.
