PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Thomson Aluminum Elite Seatpost

The Thomson Aluminum Elite seatpost features double the fatigue life of any other production models tested. The tube and head of the Thomson seatpost are integral-machined from one single piece of high strength 7000 series aluminum. The head is not pressed or bonded in. This allows for superior strength and minimum weight, allowing higher strength at low weights.

The Thomson seatpost design incorporates a bending fuse to prevent catastrophic failure. All brand-x seatposts we tested - every one of them - failed in catastrophic failure with the seat and clamp components - and sometimes pieces of the tube and head - flying off in all directions. This type of failure would dump the rider.

The Thomson seatpost has a clamp, head, and upper tube strong enough to withstand 350-foot lbs of torque. The tube will start to yield and bend at the seat tube clamp at about 250-foot lbs of torque. Remember all brand-x posts we tested flew apart at less than 150-foot lbs of torque. Under severe impact the Thomson seatpost would bend slightly and allows the rider to come to a safe stop or finish the ride.

  • Infinite tilt adjustment minus 5 degrees and plus 29 degrees
  • Adjustments can be made to the tilt of the seat without moving the seat forwards or backwards
  • Weight: 239g

I have had this post on my mountain bike since 2001. It has been raised very high (my seat is a lot higher from the frame than most) and its still as straight and strong as the day I installed it.

After upgrading my handle bars to Thomson it only made sense to stay with the Thomson name when upgrading my seat post. Excellent quality, beautiful finish, can't go wrong!!

The Best! - Apr 23, 2014

Over time I have slowly replaced every seatpost on every bike I have ever owned with a Thomson. The finish is attractive, the durability is all there but the weight is not, and the clamp is easily adjustable, not especially prone to smashing saddle rails, and never slips no matter how hard a hit it takes. It is spendy, but this is the Platonic ideal of seatposts. Get you one!
