It was only a matter of time before Thomson set their sights on dropper posts and the resulting Thomson Elite Dropper Seatpost is (unsurprisingly) a thing of beauty. Featuring 5" of infinite travel, dialing in saddle height to your heart's content is super simple via a remote lever on the bars. Bombing a particularly gnarly descent? Drop the saddle. Facing some climbing or stints of road between trails? Raise the saddle. Every single component oozes quality: custom made Norglide bearing bushings, custom made Trelleborg O-Rings and seals, Thomson saddle clamps and fasteners, and Motul Oil. This post utilizes a cartridge based system designed for long life while actuation is by cam so you'll enjoy smooth height adjustment without resorting to a hydraulics that are frequently complicated and damage-prone. No bleeding is required as well.
