Cockpit: THOMSON ELITE SEAT POST
This is one product that really has stood the test of time, and it wouldn’t be hard to imagine it in a top 100 list in another ten years time. We think it’s fair to say that there
isn’t any other seatpost which is engineered to the same level as this post. Everything about it, from the one piece construction, to the generous support for seat rails, has been so well designed. The result of all this is one of the strongest and lightest posts that money can buy. Thomson even machine the post to bend under a severe load rather than just snap, meaning you’re not just left stranded out in the middle of nowhere with a sharp bit of aluminium that’s ripe for causing some serious damage. The Elite is nothing less than understated brilliance.
