Thomson Elite Dropper Seatpost

Thomson Elite Dropper Seatpost

Thomson components are known for their impeccable quality, attention to detail, and overall strength. No stranger to the all-mountain trail bike, it was only logical that Thomson would branch into the dropper seatpost market. The one piece forged inner post is strong and reliable as there aren’t any joints to loosen or fail. Their cartridge based system is designed to have the longest service life in the industry. Actuation is by cam so rider gets smooth, variable speed and height without resorting to a complicated, damage prone hydraulic actuator. The best part is while your buddies are bleeding their posts, you’ll be on the trails. There is no bleeding required for the Elite dropper seatpost. So, you can finally put your Thomson seatpost back on your trail bike now.

Thomson Elite Dropper Seatpost Features

  • 5 inches/ 125 mm or 4 inches / 100 mm of infinitely adjustable travel
  • 5mm of setback
  • The smallest most ergonomic remote lever available with a short throw for quick height changes
  • Return speed is damped in the last 15mm of upward travel
  • 592 grams including remote lever, housing, and cable
  • Remote can be left or right side, just put it where you like!

Good, but could be a little better
I have used this seat post twice and I am hooked on dropper seat posts. I love the control it gives you and ease of use. The Thompson looks and feels durable and I have used their seat posts for years, but I had a few unexpected issues. The biggest issue was the cable lock nut kept letting the cable slip. I fixed this issue by getting a better screw and forcing it in deeper(see image). No issue after that so it appears to be improper machining from the factory. Also the Cable housing supplied is not only on the heavy side, but extremely short(see picture). I will definitely have to get a longer cable. I also wish the lever effort to drop the seat was a little lighter, more like effort I use on my XTR derailleur shifter lever. At this price, everything should be near perfect. I called their customer service number, but have yet to hear back from them. For now, I will keep it even with it's minor peccadillos.

PROS: Easy To Install, Looks Feels Quality, Attractive Design

CONS: Cable Lock Nut Issue, Lever Effort, Supplied Cable Too Short, Expensive

Cable Stopper Broke!
The external cable stopper broke on this post and Thomson wouldn't warrant the part, even though it failed within the 2 year warranty period. The part is engineered poorly. Very disappointed in their service.

Does thomson stand behind their product ?
so after 5 months it started to fail in returning to original position. I wanted to send direct to Thomson USA they would not repair it unless I paid a ransom of 100.00 (Im not kidding) so forced to send overseas where I bought it Uk. they sent it to their authorized repair ctr. 2 months later I get back a battered seatpost with missing parts ,remember mine was only 5 months old. they sent me someone elses much older post and mine went to them its been a major headache dealing with Thomson on this issue so far its not been worth it but they have promised a new post which I asked for in the beginning. Please note I did not buy this post from Jenson . but this this is an honest and accurate review on how Thomson handled "MY" situation better luck to you !

Failed after one year
Stopped working after about one year. Horrible Customer Support, especially for such a high-end product, took 4 months to get it repaired.

Thomson gets it right
Very nice post, typical Thomson quality. I tried a KS Lev and a Gravity Dropper before Thomson finally got their 27.2mm dropper on the market. The KS was unreliable and performed poorly in comparison to the Thomson, and while it works and is reliable, the Gravity Dropper is crude and ugly. The only obvious drawback compared to the KS and GD is the cable routing, although I understand that it is simpler and more reliable to route it to the top. This is one of the things that failed in the KS, it requires a somewhat gimmicky and fragile mechanism to get the cable to the base of the post. The Thomson returns at the perfect speed and is smooooth and precise. The seat clamp is normal Thomson excellent. If I dig for things to criticize, the release lever could stand for some improvement, it could be less small and squared off and more ergonomic. And the cable guide makes a zippping noise as the cable housing slides through it, it is subtle but it takes away from the otherwise sweet impression of perfect smoothness.

PROS: Easy To Install, Beautifuly Made, Beautiful Construction, Durable, Attractive Design, Premium Quality

CONS: Lever Could Be Better, Premium Price, Cable routing, Not Light

Awesome Reliable Dropper
After having repeated issues with the Rockshox Reverb, I decided that it wasn't worth fixing anymore. Other droppers I looked at all appeared to have some type of flaw with its design, except for the Thomson. This was the only one that appeared to work flawless and keep on working through time. Definitely worth the money!

Of course it's nice it's a Thomson
this thing is flawless like their other items. I have an elite x4 stem and had the standard post before this one. Perfection with out a doubt. But I can't believe they sent the thing out with such a short cable. Come on Thomson..... Still get it, you'll love it.
