Thomson Elite Inline Seatpost
The Thomson Elite seatpost is over 40% stronger on ultimate strength tests than the strongest production seatposts on the market. The Elite seatpost has double the fatigue life of any other production models tested. The tube and head of the Thomson seatpost are integral-machined from one piece of high strength 7000 series Aluminium. The head is not pressed or bonded in. This allows for superior strength and minimum weight. It’s incredibly lightweight, approximately 201g (250mm length) for road bikes and 228g (330mm length) for mountain bikes. The natural ellipse bore inside tube creates an optimum strength-to-weight ratio.
Thomson have a long 41mm seat rail grip length. This helps prevent seat rail bending from impact loads. Most other seatposts have grip lengths of at least 0.5 inch shorter than our grip length. The Thomson seatpost design incorporates a bending fuse to prevent catastrophic failure. All competitive seatposts tested, failed catastrophically with the seat and clamp components, sometimes pieces of the tube and head flew off in all directions.
The Thomson seatpost has a clamp, head and upper tube strong enough to 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 Thomson seatpost will bend slightly and allow the rider to come to a safe stop or finish the ride. The Thomson seatpost has all parts captive and can easily be attached to a seat without dis-assembly.
