Thomson Elite InLine Seatpost

Over 40% stronger on ultimate strength test than the strongest production seatposts on the market. Over double the fatigue life of any other production models we 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. Lightweight - approximately 188 grams (250 length) for road bikes and 228 grams (330 length) for mountain bikes. Natural ellipse bore inside tube for optimum strength to weight ratio. We have a long 1.614 inch (41 mm) seat rail grip length. This helps prevent seat rail bending from impact loads. Most other brand seatposts have grip lengths of .500 inch or more shorter than our grip length.
The Thomson seatpost design incorporates a bending fuse to prevent catostrophic failure. All other brand 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. 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 other brand posts we tested flew apart at less than 150 foot-lbs of torque. Under severe impact the Thomson seatpost would bend slightly, the ride could continue.

Features:

  • Every component of the Thomson seatpost is 100 percent American made. This includes all fasteners and forgings.
  • The Thomson seatpost has all parts captive and can easily be attached to a seat without disassembly.
  • Infinite tilt adjustment minus 5° and plus 29°.
  • Very low profile clamps - no seat interference - swivel nuts are down between the seat rails.
  • The designs and materials have passed extensive life and ultimate strength tests.
  • Every production lot of seatposts will have ultimate strength and fatigue tests performed. Our on going testing program insures that every production lot of seatposts meets Thomson standards.
  • Impact absorbing clamps - clamps, head, and assembly will spread and flex on impact to protect seat, rails, seatpost and rider.
  • Adjustments can be made to the tilt of the seat without moving the seat forwards or backwards.
  • Easy on seats - allows seat to survive heavy impact loads without bending rails.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 103 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product. There is an old saying that you get what you pay for. One of my personal favorite attributes is that you can visually see the degree at which your saddle is perched, which is monumental in terms of saddle adjustment and remembering when it is positioned. Highly recommended. 15 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 One of the best Excellent seatpost. Clamp is big and angle adjustment works very well. Buy this or syntace p6 and you will never be in trouble. 15 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by beautiful post Awesome looking post. Well made. Typical Thompson quality. 16 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Crafted beauty I have several of these posts on multiply bikes and find them to be a high quality long term product. There are lighter etc but they will not have the service life or robustness this post is legendary for. They've been around a long time and hopefully they don't change anything soon. 04 September 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by ok light and strong, changed it for a layback post, shifts the weight further back for hill climbing, this is good if you just want a straight post that is light 05 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by elegant appearance with attractive price really an elite product next to the top model, good quality and build. 16 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality seatpost Great quality and excellent finish. The clamping system is perfect, and allows precision adjustments very easily. All in all, I'm really happy with this upgrade. 02 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid Great piece of kit: fits even weird sizes, lightweight, solid as a rock, 10/10 :D 23 June 2014

Answer: 
These are the current range of Thompson seatpost; there is no manufacturing stamp on the post it but it is safe to assume that they are from production late 2012 to 2013.
