How could a product with Thomson written on it not be worthy of a place in the 100? The name is the definition of quality.

Over the years Thomson have become synonymous with stems and seatposts that are of the very highest quality, and so when we first heard that they would be releasing a dropper post we had a strong feeling that it too would follow suit. They certainly took their time to release it, but you can’t rush quality and Thomson knew that if they were ever going to sell one of these things it had to be worthy of carrying their name. So, it really came as little surprise to find that this dropper post is a seriously good bit of kit, and it’s one that feels like it’s going to last for years. With both a ‘stealth’ and 27.2mm version about to hit the shops its appeal grows even further, plus it’s the lightest in its class. This one was definitely worth the wait.
