Product Details

This is the Thomson Elite Dropper Seatpost. The Elite Dropper combines the control given by a dropper without giving up your Thompson Seatpost to have it. Dropping the saddle can give riders more confidence in certain terrain, now you can raise the saddle easily and quickly thanks to the included cable and lever. Every component in this post is the best available and this seatpost uses Thompsons tried and test fasteners.

While all drop posts will require service the Thomson Dropper Post has the longest field life 2 years guaranteed and the easiest least expensive service procedure. Their replaceable internal cartridge system makes service quick and fool proof. The Thompson Elite Dropper Seatpost is the ultimate and lightest dropper Seatpost on the market; grab one of these while you can.

Material Forged and Machined Aluminium, One piece forged inner stanchion for strength and reliability no joint to loosen and fail
Components Custom made Norglide bearing bushings custom made Trelleborg O-Rings and seals, Seals sized to fit perfectly synthetic oil with wide temperature rang, Charged with 100% nitrogen, Custom double lipradial spring outer bushing for both smooth operation and maximum resistance to contamination
Usable Length 300mm
Setback 5mm of setback is built in to the seatpost cradle allowing a little more cockpit room
Amount of Drop 125mm of infinite travel, return speed is damped in the last 15mm of upward travel to be gentle on your "seating" area
Speed of Drop 0.3 Meters/Second
Lever The smallest most ergonomic remote lever available. Short throw for quick height changes
Actuation By cam so rider gets smooth, variable speed and height without resorting to a complicated, damage prone hydraulic actuator; no bleeding required. Side mount of actuation mechanism means Thomson can keep all the critical dimensions of the Thomson Elite cradlebolt and clamp geometry
Compatibility You must be able to insert at least 100mm of post into your frame to have room to use this post (see detailed image on this page)
Servicing The cartridge based system is designed to have the longest service life in the industry. If repair is needed it is fast, affordable and simple. Replaceable internal cartridge system makes service quick and fool proof

Extra Features Designed not to extend when the saddle is used to hang the bike on a lift chair, Custom made Norglide bearing bushing ensures years of service with no saddle left to right "play"
Weight 592g including remote lever and cable
Notes Please note, the image shows the seatpost with the under saddle lever, this is an additional accessory. You will receive the Elite Dropper seatpost with the bar mounted lever and cable
