2014_NAHBS_Thomson_Dropper-1

Yep. Everyone thought this project was shelved, but it’s alive and ready to roll out in Summer of 2014. The Thomson Elite Dropper Post will ship with both a cable and switch mechanism or this handy, under rail switch. Run it on your hardtail, rigid, or even *shudder* your cross bike.

    How does it work?

      I had the same question.

      You’re sitting on the saddle and you pull that lever, the saddle drops so you can tuck behind it on steep, technical descents. Or to hop up high ledges.

      Then, you sit up off the saddle and pull the lever again, returning the saddle to full height.

        I meant is it mechanically or hyrdaulically actuated? Like a Fox or a Rockshox? Is the cable/hose “stealth” routable? That sort of thing

    Ive never seen an under-the-seat dropper post before, never the leass it looks sweet. Did they mention anything on the price?

    We already have a few customers out on these and the feedback has been very positive; they look great as well as you’d expect from Thomson.

    Nice! A sweet option for how crowded MTB cockpits are getting if not running a 1x system.
