Thomson Elite Dropper Seatpost

Thomson, forever the go to seatpost if you wanted lightweight and durability. Many have begrudgingly given up their beloved Thomson post for one of the many dropper posts available but now Thomson have answered your prayers. You want the increased control a dropper post gives you? Well now you can put a Thomson post back on your bike!

Thomson's cartridge based system is designed to have the longest service life in the industry. If repair is needed it is fast, affordable and simple. As you would expect from Thomson, every single component is the best available. Custom made Norglide bearing bushings are protected by custom made Trelleborg O-rings and seals keeping in place Motul oil. With Thomson's renowned saddle clamps topping off, this is the drop post good enough to be called a Thomson Elite. Weighing in at 450 grams it is also the lightest drop post available.

While all drop posts will require service, the Thomson Dropper Post has the longest field life with a 2 year guarantee and the easiest least expensive service procedure. Thomson's replaceable internal cartridge system makes service quick and foolproof. Seals sized to fit perfectly combined with synthetic oil give a wide operating temperature range. Custom double lipradial spring outer bushings provide both smooth operation and maximum resistance to contamination.

The side mounted actuation mechanism means Thomson can keep all the critical dimensions of the Thomson Elite cradle bolt and clamp geometry. The one piece forged inner stanchion provides strength and reliability with no joint to loosen and fail. Actuation is by a cam so the rider gets smooth variable speed and height without resorting to a complicated damage prone hydraulic actuator. and no bleeding is required either. 5mm of setback is built in to the seatpost cradle allowing a little more cockpit room.

Unlike some other dropper posts, the Thomson Dropper is designed not to extend when the bike is lifted by the saddle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great post Had a reverb before this the Thomson is so much better in quality and smoother dropper also less service on this than reverb I got this in the sale at £234.99 so pleased at the price 20 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works flawlessly.... So far Easy to set up as long as you've got basic mechanical know how, I didn't even find I needed to cut down the cable length on my yeti, the longer of the two cables provided is just about perfect. Works really well, nice and smooth with no noticeable side movement like some droppers, I'm really appreciating not having to stop and lower my seat when I come to a technical decent, one push of the lever and it's nicely out the way. One slight niggle for me is the lever itself, it's rather pointy looking and I can't say I'm looking forward to catching it if I fall off. Yes it is expensive, I'd been pondering for quite a long time if I could really justify it or not especially over some cheaper alternatives but from reading around this was generally the most reliable dropper at the time, I personally have not regrets at all now I've made the purchase, am I expecting it to be flawless after a year or 2 of good use? I'd like to think so for the amount it cost but I wouldn't be overly shocked if it starts playing up somewhere along the line. I've heard Thomson have got excellent warrant though so hopefully any problems will be quickly dealt with. 26 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I couldn't run a stealth version on my bike and not limit on length adjustment. That being said "expensive but riding with it Priceless" so much more I couldn't run a stealth version on my bike and not limit on length adjustment. That being said "expensive but riding with it Priceless" so much more 25 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by brilliant product Just come back from a week in vernier. The seat post made such a difference it could not be believed. If you do cross country and trails you need one. Kit came with everything need to fit it. 2 cables of different lengths. What more could you want 07 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple design built to a very high standard You'll be impressed with the Thomson dropper if you enjoy operating precision instruments just for the sake of it. Like quality brakes or crisp shifters, there's a certain pleasure that's derived from using a simple device that has been made to an incredibly high standard. Thomson have refined every single aspect of this seatpost and it works like a dream. There are no rough edges or erratic operation it just goes up and down as much as you want, when you want. The action is sublime and it encourages you to use it because it works so well. Highly recommended 05 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality Thomson product Like all Thomson gear this is A1 quality. Whilst it is an expensive component it performs the task perfectly. Fitted on a Yeti sb95 XL cable length fits perfectly. Easy to fit, operates flawlessly and absolutely no lateral movement. 23 September 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Total let down Fitted to the bike no bother , went for a spin and the seat stem pivoted in the black shaft. Tried to claim on warranty to no avail. Waited quite a while for this to come on the market too. Oh and those with really wide bars may find the inner and outer cable a bit short. 09 August 2013
