Thomson Elite InLine Seatpost Features

The popular Thomson Elite InLine is one of the most trusted and used components in the mountain bike and road cycling world.  If you look for recommendations for a strong and light seat post on cycling forums, a Thomson will inevitably be the most suggested purchase, with it's extensive testing and impressive specification.  In terms of versatility it's suitable for all kinds of riding, and available in virtually any size and length combination you can wish for.  It's light enough for cross country use, but strong enough for those who choose to ride more challenging terrain.

  • All of this seatpost is American made - including all of the components that make up this seatpost, from the fasteners and various forgings
  • For convenience the post can be attached and removed from different saddles without having to separate and disassemble the various components
  • The elite features unlimited tilt adjustment between -5 and +29 degrees.
  • The saddle clamps are exceptionally low profile in nature, so not to clash with the saddle, with the fastening nuts located between the rails so not to cause any issues with the saddle
  • As with all Thomson components, all of the materials and components have passed many safety, strength and fatigue tests to extensively prove that they are fit for purpose.
  • The clamps are designed to help absorb shocks and impact by flexing, thus saving the rider, saddle, it's rails and thus making sure the bicycle and rider are unaffected
  • The tilt angle can conveniently be adjusted without having to relocate the saddle, making minor adjustments a simple procedure.
  • Approximately 40% stronger than the next toughest posts available, with over twice the fatigue strength of other competitors.
  • Both the head and tube feature the same high strength 7000 series aluminium, and have been integral machined and not pressed.
  • Well thought out and tested design results in the legendary Thomson strength to weight ratio.
  • 41mm long saddle rail grip to help prevent any damage to the saddle rail from impact or fatigue - this is far longer than most of our competitor's models
  • Our Elite posts weighs around 188g for the road version (25cm length) or just 228g for the 33cm MTB version
  • Inside the tube you'll find a natural ellipse bore to help strengthen yet further.
  • Includes a bending fuse to avoid sudden breakage - unlike competitors who are prone to snapping when under abnormally high loads, ours just bends instead - this would happen at around 250 foot lbs of torque, which is around 100 more than our competing posts managed before they broke.
The amount of thought and testing that has gone into this simple component is mind blowing - it's renowned for being far stronger and durable than other manufacturer's offers, and is the ultimate in fit and forget seatposts. With a Thomson in between your saddle and your frame you have the peace of mind not to worry about component failure. Lightweight, strong and cheap - what's not to like?!
None - it works exceptionally well, and is available in pretty much every size and length combination you can think of!
