Masterpiece posts weigh approximately 40 grams less than the same size Elite model post. This weight reduction was accomplished while maintaining the strength and durability expected from a Thomson seat post. The setback is 16mm.
Thomson accomplished this weight reduction by machining the seat post all over including the oval inner diameter. Thomson were able to hold closer tolerances by machining than by extrusion alone. Machining all over on an already beautiful design makes the Masterpiece seat post a real work of art.
