You know a product works well when people are prepared to pay a premium for it, and that’s certainly the case with Thomson’s stems and seatposts.
The latest addition to the lineup is this seat collar, which looks just as sleek, and is almost certain to deliver the same combination of market-leading strength and durability.
It has been several years in the making and has been designed to deliver maximum clamping force, distributed evenly around the collar, with minimum tightening.
This is thanks to features like an offset slot, and a bolt, washer and barrel nut fastener system with built in ‘float’. All of which means it should be ideal for carbon frames and posts.
It’s available in black or silver, and to fit 28.6, 29.8, 31.8 and 34.9mm seatposts. Claimed weight is 26-27g, and RRP is £19.99 (US$29.95).
