Thomson Covert Elite Dropper Post

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; furthermore, into the internal-cable-routed 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.

    Comments about Thomson Covert Elite Dropper Post:

    Installed this on my Enduro MTB. It's an amazing upgrade. I can't imagine riding without one now. It works flawlessly. It raises and lowers at a comfortable speed and does not flinch once set.

    I love the thumb actuator, it fits perfectly on the left side of the bars and as I only run a rear derailleur it is the second lever, instead of a third...

    The only issue is with the way the actuator cable is routed. It comes straight out and has to bend the cable. This causes some very ugly cable routing issues (like a huge loop to clear the headset!). Thomson could have overcome this by routing the cable at 75 or 80 degrees inline with brake or shifter cables.

    Comments about Thomson Covert Elite Dropper Post:

    I own it for about 8 months/700miles . I weigh about 165lbs. It was flawless for the first 4 months , no up and down play or side to side movement , smooth and quiet , takes a bit of patience to install. Around 450 miles started to sag about 1/8" ,no biggie.
    6-7 months into it had about 1/4" up/down play.Sent it back to Thomson ,they "fixed" it and came back to me with more play and a bit of noise during rise. Now during a ride it has a pogostick action going on, however still no side to side play. Also if your cable ever breaks the default setting is at full extention so you can still pedal home if need to. If I had to do it again I'd buy smthing cheaper and buy couple nice tires with the leftover money perhaps.

    Comments about Thomson Covert Elite Dropper Post:

    Replacing my broken specialized black light on my SC Bronson and it was perfect timing with the release of the covert. Thomson makes quality components and the same is true for the covert. This was a difficult install due to the stealth routing as compared to the specialized external routing, but once completed it was worth the trouble. Very smooth and precise actuation with no death loop. Overall I am very pleased and as for durability only time will tell, so for now I am relying on all the positive feedback from the elite dropper reviews..
