You are probably already familiar with the legendary Thomson Elite seatpost. Now theyve improved it with the new Masterpiece model, which weighs in at more than 40 grams less, while maintaining the strength and durability you would expect from Thomson.
Please note: Thomson does not recommend the use of shims on their seatposts.
- Inner machined oval saves weight
- Tube and head machined from 7000-series aluminum
- Head is 1-piece (not bonded or pressed) for superior strength
- 41mm of seat rail grip length, helps prevent seat rail bending
- Every component is 100% American made, including all fasteners and forgings
- Infinite tilt adjustment, minus 5° and plus 29°
- Every production lot is fatigue and strength tested

It is expensive, though. Getting your saddle attached is pretty finicky, but I've gotten good at it with a little practice. Adjusting the saddle angle can be somewhat time consuming but it's very accurate and stays put once you set it.
PROS: Cred Points On The Trail, Strong Construction, Attractive Design, Lightweight
CONS: Saddle Attachment, Price

It s brilliant
PROS: Attractive Design, Great Mounting System
It's lighter than many carbon seatposts out there and the finish lasts a very long time through many abrasions through a seat tube.
As a bonus, it's designed and machined by real, live Americans in the aerospace industry in Macon, Georgia. It's an investment... some people will think it's worth it, others won't.

The Masterpiece is their most refined, light weight post. Do note, with their attention to QC and safety, Thomson gives a ride weight limit for this post.
I've had a serious injury from another manufacturer's seat post failure and Thomson is now the only product i trust with my life. I'm 190lbs suited up to hit the bike park and feel secure using the Masterpiece for this hardcore application. It also rivals any seat post on the market in regards to weight. I'd use it on my weight wennie road bike. There might be posts out their that are slightly lighter but are you really going to count a handful of grams vs safety.
PROS: Quality control light
PROS: Light and stiff
CONS: Dirt builds up under seat
PROS: Light, Durable, Stiff
CONS: Saddle installation
BEST USES: Cross country, XC, Singletrack
PROS: Lightweight, Strong Construction, Great Mounting System, Attractive Design
