Thomson Elite Seatpost

If there's a seatpost by which all other seatposts are measured... The Thomson Elite is the gold standard! We recommend these without hesitation due to their superb strength, light weight, and no-slip design. Engineered by Thomson, a leader in the aerospace industry, this seatpost features strength far beyond that of OE seatposts. Machined in the USA from tubes of extruded aluminum and anodized silver or black, the Thomson Elite is at once light, strong and beautiful.

  • Weight: 290g (27.2 x 410mm)
  • Material: One Piece Extruded Machined Aluminum
  • Feature: Twin bolt seat adjustability

Please Note: Thomson does not recommend the use of shims on their seatposts.

    The Thomson Elite seatpost is a classic and for good reason. They last forever, they look great, and they perform wonderfully.

    Like a CK headset, they end up getting passed down from bike to bike because they last virtually forever. They're light, well machined, and have a feel of quality that I have not seen with any less expensive seatposts. To top it off, Thomson customer service is very approachable and works with the customer should any issues arise years down the road.

    Danger !!! I am sorry that I cannot report the (+) reviews that others have posted for this product. I had this post on my road bike. The mounting clamp design to the post / seat rails is a very weak design. On two (2) occasions, the seat clamp bolt snapped w/o any warning, dropping the seat and nearly me off the bike, each time nearly loosing control of my bike. On one occasion I was humping pretty hard on a downhill, at approx 43 mph. The 1st time it happened I just said 'ohh well. I'll fix it'. The next time it happened, after nearly biting the pavement, I took out the post never to use it again. I've e-mailed Thompson but they never returned any e-mails. In my opinion, the design stresses the clamp bolts beyond their elastic limit. The second bolt I put in was a grade 8 bolt, and it still snapped. I also ride mtn and cannot ever imagine using this post on a mth bike if it could not stand up to road use (my weight is 185 pounds, ex Cat II racer).Again, sorry this conflicts with the other listed reviews, but the above reflects my experience with the post, You'll have to decide for yourself to buy it or not.Note: This will be the 2nd time I've attempted to post a review. I just don't want to see anyone get hurt. On posting a review, one gets a msg that review will be posted after its content is reviewed. I gave a (-) review. Perhaps this is the reason my review did not get posted the 1st time.

          Not as quick and easy to install/adjust as a single bolt seat post, but you only install it once.

          If you are looking for a quality straight up seat post with no setback/offset this post is the one.

          Set it and forget it!

          Comments about Thomson Elite Seatpost:

          Looks awesome, essentially zero chance of this thing failing. My absolute ONLY complaint, is the horizontal milling on the external of the post. If you don't have your seat post clamp tight enough, its possible you may experience some movement of the seat left to right if you hit it hard with a body part, BUT after tightening it tighter, no issue. Only really happened on the first couple rides, then I realized it was just a liiiiiittle loose. Hasn't been a problem since.

              Every bike I own (except one with a dropper) has a Thomson seatpost because they simply work. The quality is exceptional and they are easy to adjust to get the perfect position. You can't go wrong with this post.

                This is the third Thompson seat post I've owned. The others are still on other bikes and this one was for a new carbon frame. The best thing is that it is easy to adjust and once you get the seat adjusted, you never have to think about it again.
                What can I say, strong, light, and made in the USA.
