  • Thomson Elite Layback Seatpost

    Manufactured from top-end 7000 series aluminium, forged clamps and a head that's been internally machined, this layback seatpost is a true market leader. It offers you a very high strength at a low weight and inside the tube, there is an extruded bore to further increase the seatpost's rigidity.

    Lightweight Aluminium Seatpost

    This seatpost is over 40% stronger on ultimate strength tests than the strongest production seatposts on the market. It has double the fatigue life of any other production models tested by Thomson. The tube section and head are integral-machined from one piece of high-strength 7000 series aluminium. As the head is not pressed or bonded in, the Elite Layback Seatpost benefits from superior strength at a minimum weight.

    Layback Seatpost with Superior Strength

    This post is so strong that the clamp, head, and upper tube can 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. Under severe impact the post will bend only slightly, thus allowing you to stop safely or even finish the ride.

    • Top-end 7000 series Aluminium construction.
    • Very high strength.
