This week saw the release of the new Thomson Elite 275 Titanium mountain bike frame. Thomson have been developing new products for years, pushing the boundaries of design, function and form. Their stems have been a go to product for anyone looking for something hard wearing and strong enough to take any pressure put on them.
So Thomson made a mountain bike frame for people looking for something of the highest quality, something that is truly set apart from anything else on the market. In their design Thomson have gone for a slightly shorter wheel base, enabling the rider to turn quickly and with ease, however this might mean the ride is less stable, but that’s another debate. This bike is designed to work perfectly with the new Thomson Dropper seat post-
A product that Thomson have been developing for a while now and at price of $500 I don’t think they will become as common as the standard Thomson post. The Dropper is designed so that the rider can adjust their saddle height at anytime, moving the seat lower to bomb around with a lower centre of gravity and putting it higher to push up the hills.
The titanium elite 275 is something to look out for, hand made by Lynskey in the USA. I am sure this will pick up a lot of attention when it is released in May of this year and with Thomson saying that a 29er model is already in development I am sure this will bring about a new phase in the all ready powerful Thomson Empire.
