Setting the standard for seatposts.

Thomson’s legendary Elite Seatpost is known across the industry for its strength, light weight, and ease of adjustment. The post and cradle are machined from a single piece of 7000-series aluminum. The head is not pressed or bonded in, which allows for higher strength at a low weight. The Elite has a 2-bolt design that allows for easy saddle adjustments. Lastly, the Elite only weighs around 180g.

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

Great post when you need a lot of angle.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

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

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

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was doing a custom build last summer , I decided to get Thompson Seat Post and Stem, great products. Made in America , light weight , sturdy and classic look. I'm glad I went with the best.

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!!

Best pipe ever

I bought two of these, one for my mtb and one for my road bike. I read tons of other reviews and forum postings before I purchased, but seeing them in person really sells the quality. On my mtb, the Thomson replaced a Truvativ Stylo, not a bad post, but I wanted zero offset and wanted to try the Thomson. The Thomson, in the hand, is noticeably lighter. On my road bike, it replaced an oem post. The Thomson, like many other posts, is turned on lathe or some kind of similar machine. Unlike most other posts though, you can actually feel the tiny grooves, kind of like the edge of a fine file. Looking inside the open end of the tube, you can see the tapered walls where the front and rear sides are thicker and the left and right sides are thinner. This saves weight while retaining strength and stiffness. The clamp is longer where it holds the saddle rails and feels like a vise on the bike. The saddle flexes much less than on other posts. The adjustment screws are a much finer thread than what I'm used to, which I'm finding is not a bad thing. I can make very fine adjustments and the saddle angle doesn't change several more degrees when I torque the bolts down. I have found that often times you get what you pay for. This is definitely one of those products, except, I'm not sure why you would want to pay any more for a seatpost unless you want the Masterpiece model. I see carbon posts that cost several times as much as the Thomson Elite that are marginally lighter at best and not nearly as strong. I now see what the hype is all about and I will put these posts on every bike I own from now on.

Nothing better than a Thomson post and matching stem. Light enough and will last you a lifetime. Easy to adjust. Use a level on your seat when you install to make sure it's level. Have fun!
