The legendary design and construction of the proven Elite seatpost by Thomson, in a layback design for riders desiring a bit more setback. Post and cradle are constructed from one piece of 7000-series aluminum.
Please note: Thomson does not recommend the use of shims on their seatposts.
Second to none quality and construction. Jenson USA staff believe Thomson offers the best seatposts on the market
What is there to be said about a Thomson post that has not been already said? Quality is superb -- everything from the cotton bag the post is packed in to the knurled clamp screws, this post will last a lifetime.
When I sell one of my bikes, I keep the post. They just keep on going.
The setback post has a unique aesthetic that can take some getting used to. I think it looks awesome.
I have a setback on my cross bike and a straight post on the commuter. Each has given me zero trouble.
I read once that the true mark of a good seatpost is forgetting that it's there. Nothing can be more true of a Thomson.
The clamp style makes saddle movement all but impossible when properly installed. Replacement parts are easy to find and assembly is intuitive.
Yes, a Thomson post is an investment. But it's one that you'll keep for the life of your current bike and many bikes to come.
The seatpost i bought with my bike was rubbish to put it nicely, the saddle was constantly coming loose. I bought this because i read thompson were the best and I'd have to agree. Once i set it up, it hasn't moved in the slightest. Looks awesome too, you can tell imediately it's a quality product, ill be fitting one of these to all furute bikes, really happy
PROS: Looks good, Set once and leave it, High Quality
Junk OEM seat post failed in 2 months. Bought this because of Thomson reputation and I am not disappointed. Quality piece. Amazing how something as simple as a setback post opens the bike up. Definitely worth the money.
PROS: Lightweight, Compatible, Easy to Use, Durable
BEST USES: Serious Racing or Training, Casual Riding
This seat post is on my sscx. The setback is perfect. The finish on it is somehow both impeccably beautiful and super bombproof--no scratches! I love the combination of strength and lightness. The two bolt system allows lots of range for adjustments.
This is the best seat post in the world.
PROS: Made In Georgia, Lightweight, Compatible, Durable, Easy to Use
I really like this post. Unlike my other seatposts this one really clamps on the rails. No seat movement what-so-ever. This thing is awesome. The post also feels like it has a little give compared to other types of layed back posts helping smooth out the trail. As light as most carbon posts for less money. Made in the USA. I have switched all of my bikes over to Thomson.
PROS: Strong, Comfortable, Light, USA Made, Adjustability
great seat post. it has so many adjustments finding the perfect saddle angle is easy. i purchased the setback post because i wanted more weight over the rear of my bike and greater saddle adjustment. this product has worked perfect for me. i have no complaints.
PROS: Durable, Lightweight, Easy to Use
BEST USES: Casual Riding, mountain biking, Commuting, Climbing
I've used this post for several years on both a hardtail and FS bike. No complaints whatsoever. Never had it slip or squeak. Clamp functionality is simple and effective. Looks great combined with the Thomson seat collar and stem!
Overall, I love the product features, just wish it was a little less bulky on the top. With a smaller mount area, or leaner area, perhaps I wouldn't have the rub issues. I usually ride 125 miles per week, and this has definitely enabled me to hone in the position and make for a more comfortable ride.
This seatpost ran trouble-free for a while, but it has started creaking. Despite taking it apart and cleaning it, and greasing every possible surface I have not been able to get it to stop for more than one ride at a time. That is way too much maintenance for a $90 seatpost. Maybe this is an isolated problem, but it is still a pain.
