Thompson Elite Layback seatpost

The Thomson Elite seatpost is the standard by which all other seatposts are judged. Forged clamps, integrally machined head, and an elliptically extruded 7000 series aluminum body have made the Elite and the Setback Elite the industry models for strength, light weight and ease of adjustment.

The Thomson Elite seatpost is the standard by which all other seatposts are judged. Forged clamps, integrally machined head, and an elliptically extruded 7000 series aluminum body make the Elite an industry standard. The 16mm setback option helps provide precise fit for a wide range of bikes and riders.
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. Very low profile clamps means no seat interference as the swivel nuts are down between the seat rails
