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/ 125mm of infinite travel
  • 5mm of setback
  • The smallest most ergonomic remote lever available. 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 is NOT left/ right specified

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.

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 !

      Comments about Thomson Elite Dropper Seatpost:

      I've ridden KS LEV and RockShox Reverb, and this blows both those two away. No play whatsoever, and buttery smooth movement. If it wasn't so expensive I'd buy one for all my bikes. This just seems to be a level above other droppers on the market.

      I broke the platic cable guide that clamps to the post, but it still works just fine.

        Reliable performance that we expect from Thomson. Multi level adjust is needed for variety of trails I ride. No preset points like other droppers. Highly recommended.

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

              Purchased the Thomson Elite Dropper 27.2 diameter for my hardtail as this was the only one after extensive research proved to be the best for me. After a few rides, I was convinced. On my All Mountain bike my crank brothers dropper started to fail, so I wanted to replace it and the obvious choice was the Thomson Elite Dropper. I purchased the 31.6 diameter version and installed it and have been impressed ever since.

                  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!

I read a lot of reciews about Thomson dropper and I want to to try the Thomson droper myself. as far as the quality of the dropper...I can say it's rock solid Thomson Quality...Its smoooth...

                      Expensive

                      The Thompson is the best option with the 125mm tavel I could find for the 27.2. It seems like I would like more range, to have the seat lower as well as the height.

                      I would of preferred the cable to the post rather than sliding with the seat, but doesn't seem to get in the way of the under seat tool kit or light.

                      Looks quality.
