The Thomson Elite Straight Seatpost is the standard by which all other seatposts are judged. Forged clamps, integrally machined head, and an elliptically extruded 7000 series aluminium body have made the Elite the industry model for strength, light weight and ease of adjustment. Over 40% stronger on ultimate strength test than the strongest production seatposts on the market. Thomson has found that the Elite Straight seatpost has over double the fatigue life of any production models they have tested. The head is not pressed or bonded in, the tube and head of the Thomson seatpost are integral-machined from one single piece of high strength aluminium. This allows for superior strength and minimum weight, allowing higher strength at low weights. The Thomson Elite has no setback, perfect for mountain biking or on your road bike to bring you further forward.
