    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    The THOMSON Elite 27.2mm seatpost offers superior strength and minimum weight.

    • Tube and head are integral-machined from a single piece of high-strength 7000-series aluminum, allowing higher strength at lower weights
    • Natural ellipse bore inside tube provides optimum strength-to-weight ratio
    • Long 1.6 in. (41 mm) seat rail grip length helps prevent the seat rail from bending due to impact loads
    • Design incorporates a bending fuse to prevent catastrophic failure
    • Clamp, head and upper tube are strong enough to withstand 350 foot-pounds of torque
    • Impact absorbing clamps; clamps, head and assembly will spread and flex on impact to protect seat, rails, seatpost and rider
    • Infinite tilt adjustment; -5° and +29°
    • Low-profile clamps prevent seat interference; swivel nuts are down between the seat rails
    • Adjustments can be made to the tilt of the seat without moving the seat forwards or backwards
    • Easy on seats; allows seat to survive heavy impact loads without bending your rails
    • Every component of the THOMSON seatpost is 100% American made; this includes all fasteners and forgings

    Made in USA.

    THOMSON Elite Seatpost - 27.2mm is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more pain or numbness!! Bought this to change out my stock post on my mountain bike. I put 30 miles a night on my bike and was having issues with numbness and soreness in my back and other regions. I bought this post specifically so I could tilt my terry seat down in front to take the pressure off of sensitive areas and my lower back. Works great!! No more pain or numbness!! I would definitely recommend this post! Very simple to install and you can adjust the seat tilt separately without pulling out the post or messing with the seat itself. Great design...worth the $$!
