Item # THP0001

Legendary for a reason.

A stupendously high-quality non-setback seatpost that sets the standard for saddle adjustability and overall precision. The post and cradle are machined from one piece of 7000-series aluminum. Uses a 2-bolt design that allows you to nose your saddle up or down through adjustments to the bolts. 41mm seat rail grip. At 180g it rivals the lightness of carbon posts that cost twice as much.

  • Machined from one piece of 7000-series aluminum
  • 2-bolt design for easy saddle adjustments
  • Long attachment length (around 41mm)
  • Lightweight (roughly 180g)

Great And solid.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Awesome seatpost. Very high quality seatpost and nicely machined. Very light and sturdy. I have not had any problems with it. Does not flex.

Thomson offers unmatched quality on alloy product!

The Thomson Elite has been a classic standby any time I need a new post. I've had this on road bikes, mountain bikes, and city bikes. I've never had any complaints. It is comfortable and lighter than many carbon posts.

Great post when you need a lot of angle.

I use this on a, now ancient, Maverick Matic. The monolink design requires the seat post angle to be very aggressive so the seat post has to compensate for it. Though it's at the limits with the stock bolts, it works out fine. No issue are creaking. Fantastic high quality seat post. With about 2 dozen rides on it, zero issues.

Great post when you need a lot of angle.

post perfection

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I run this post on my Yeti. Love it. Looks good. No slip at all. Very strong as well.

Nice light strong post that doesn't slip and looks fairly good as well.

The best hands down

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I enjoy the aesthetics of Thomson but the quality can't be beat.

I've used zero-offset posts for some time now and I'm all in on Thomson. Some other stuff might be a few grams lighter but there's something about a Thomson, that badass look!

It makes my already amazing bike better!

Only the Best for a Custom Build

Thomson 4 Life!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Every bike I've owned... since 2002 or so, have all been Thomson'd up! When something is great, you stick with 'em.

Can't beat it...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've owned three or four of these over the years. This one seems to be built to same standards I've come to expect from Thomson. Fit perfectly, set up was a breeze and it looks great too.

Super Nice Seatpost!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm loving mine so far! Everybody knows that Thomson gear is top of the line, and super high quality, so there's really no need to comment on that any further. I got mine on Backcountry, on sale for a really great price, too. The ease of installation and set-up went perfectly. The use so far has been flawless. I have no complaints whatsoever...

Agree: its the gold standard seatpost.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Had many of these on multiple mountain bikes. All did their job without every a hiccup. Will continue to put these on all my mountain bikes.

Thomson Elite Seat Post

I love this brand and this seatpost. It holds the saddle real nice and tight.
I tried many seatpost before, and broke many of them, but this one just won't, its durable and can go through anything.

in general this seatpost is very reliable and you won't be disappointed
don't hesitate to buy!!
