Side mount of actuation mechanism means we can keep all the critical dimensions of the Thomson Elite cradle, bolt and clamp geometry. One piece forged inner post for strength and reliability, no joint to loosen and fail. Actuation is by cam so rider gets smooth, variable speed and height without resorting to a complicated, damage prone hydraulic actuator; no bleeding required.
Return speed is damped in the last 15mm of upward travel to be gentle on your “seating” area!
5 inches/125mm of infinite travel.
5mm of setback.
592 grams including remote lever, housing and cable.
The smallest most ergonomic remote lever available. Short throw for quick height changes.

A – Yes it is. You can ride with the saddle at any point in the 125mm travel range.
Q – What colors are available?
A – The post is available in Black.
Q – Can I have a lever under the saddle?
A – The under the saddle lever is an optional accessory. The dropper comes standard with a bar mounted remote lever. You may remove the bar mount lever and purchase and install the under the saddle lever if you choose.
Q – Can I cut the post to make it shorter?
A – No. The post is a piece of suspension. Cutting will cause the post to fail and may lead to injury.
Q – What are the critical dimensions I should know?
A – You must be able to insert at least 100mm of post into your frame to have room to use this post. If you only insert 100mm in the frame 300mm will be exposed. 212mm is the most you can insert. 185mm will be exposed at a minimum. See detailed specifications drawing above.
Q – Can you change the drop or rise speed?
A – No. Our drop and rise speed is fixed at .3 meter per second.
Q – What do the individual parts weigh?
A – The post by itself weighs 515g. The remote lever, housing and cable weigh 77g. The under the saddle lever weighs 10g. A complete post with remote weighs 592g. A complete post with under the saddle lever weighs 525g.
Q – Will you make a 27.2 drop post?
A – Yes. We are working on a shorter travel 27.2 dropper style post. We plan to show the post in July of 2013.
Q – Does your post provide saddle setback?
A – Yes. 5mm of setback is built into the seatpost.
Q – How should I clean my dropper?
A – Use warm water and dish soap and a sponge or rag to clean your post. Do not use high pressure spray. Rinse by hand with clear water. Dry and apply a silicone based spray such as Pedro’s Bike Lust to all surfaces.
Q – I am having install trouble. What is wrong?
A – The post is easy to install. The remote cable and housing is trickier. You must use cable and housing cutters to shorten the cable and housing. Any burrs on the housing ends will cause cable friction. If you zip tie the housing to the frame too tightly, you can restrict cable movement. If the cable tension is too low the post will not drop. If too high, it will not stay down. If you don’t have the tools and/or are not a great mechanic, please let a shop do the install.
