Elite External Dropper



Our answer to the non-internally routed MTB?s! We?ve kept a few in stock for you die-hards.



The Elite Dropper uses side mount actuation, keeping all critical dimensions of the Thomson Elite cradle, bolt, and clamp geometry. One piece forged inner post is designed for strength and reliability? no joint to loosen and or fail. Actuation is by cam for smooth variable speeds and height. Unlike a complicated, damage-prone hydraulic actuator; our post needs no bleeding.

Available in 27.2, 30.9, and 31.6 diameters. The 27.2 Elite Dropper features external housing and cable installation? the external dropper lets you re-build that aggressive hard tail you have been dreaming of.
