The Masterpiece is over 40% stronger on ultimate strength tests than the strongest production seatposts on the market. Masterpiece posts weigh approximately 40 grams less than the same size Elite post. This weight reduction is accomplished while maintaining the strength and durability expected of a Thomson seatpost. Thomson accomplishes this weight reduction by machining the seatpost all over, including the oval inner diameter. We are able to hold closer tolerances by machining than by extrusion alone. Machining over an already beautiful design makes the Masterpiece Seatpost a work of art. The tube and head of the Thomson Masterpiece seatpost is integral-machined from one piece of high strength 7000 series aluminum. The head is not pressed or bonded in. This allows for superior strength and minimum weight. We have a long 1.614 inch (41 mm) seat rail grip length. This helps prevent seat rail bending from impact loads. Most other seatposts have grip lengths of at least .500 inches shorter than our grip length. Very low profile clamps means no seat interference as the swivel nuts are down between the seat rails. The designs and materials have passed extensive life and ultimate strength tests. Our ongoing testing program ensures that every production lot of seatposts meets Thomson standards.
