Thomson Covert Elite Seat Dropper Post Available in 30.9mm and 31.6mm

30.9 and 31.6 Covert Dropper posts are built for bikes that utilise internal housing and cable routing for dropper posts. Housing and cable exits the bottom of the post and does not move when the post moves.

Covert droppers cannot be converted to external cable models, and existing external cable droppers cannot be converted to covert. All specifications are the same, 5 inches/125mm of infinite travel, 515 g for weight.

You want the increased control a dropper post gives you but you had to give up your Thomson post to have it. Not any longer, you can put your Thomson post back on the bike! Our cartridge based system is designed to have the longest service life in the industry. If repair is needed it is fast, affordable and simple. Every single component is the best available. Custom made Norglide bearing bushings, custom made Trelleborg O-Rings and seals, Thomson saddle clamps and fasteners, Motul Oil. This is the drop post good enough to be called a Thomson Elite.

General information about our shipping
Installed at weekend and have had one ride, up hill - down dale and worked really well
Lightning fast delivery by Merlin as always and by far the cheapest online I`ve seen. I fitted this to my 2013 Lapierre Zesty 414 as most of the finishing kit is Thompson it seemed like a natural choice Initially I had considered the Thomson Elite Dropper as all the reviews id seen were positive. However when I saw the covert was available I thought the additional spend was worth it as the frame is set up for running an internally routed dropper Installation was a little tricky as internal cable routing is always one of those jobs I never look forward to but after some perseverance I managed to feed the cable through the frame. I opted to mount the operating switch on the right side of the bar which involved removing the grip, brake lever and shifter. Would have been easier if Thompson had created a hinge for this part, but its a minor point Once all together it looks very smart and operation is smooth. Theres a barrel adjuster to increase cable tension as needed. I also had to invest in a fixed seat collar, again went for a Thomson to keep in check with the rest of the bike. QR would have worked but kind of defeats the object of having a dropper post in the first place Happy with the setup, off to Dalby forest next month and BPW later in the year, so sure this is going to be where ill really see the return on investment. Will add a second review once properly tested, watch this space
