Thudbuster LT

long-travel design - only

MSRP - $169 seatpost + $18 cover = $187 SAVE $18.00

By adding the Thudbuster rear suspension you'll ride faster, longer, and stronger with better traction, more control, and less fatigue. The performance, relative low weight, and simplicity make it the best suspension upgrade you can make to your hardtail. Based on a patented parallel-linkage design, the Thudbuster LT provides up to 3 inches of active stiction-free travel. Unlike telescoping suspension posts, there is no initial stiction to overcome-the suspension mechanism works in the direct path of the natural travel of the rear wheel. The elastomers provide the compression and rebound damping, and can be easily exchanged to tune the suspension.

Thudbuster ST

short-travel design - only
buy it here and receive a free thudglove ($18 value)
MSRP - $164 seatpost + $18 cover = $182 SAVE $18.00

All the benefits of the original Thudbuster design in a smaller package. The Thudbuster ST uses a shorter parallel-linkage mechanism to yield the ideal suspension post for:
  • XC riders looking to "take the edge off" with less of a weight penalty
  • Road riding enthusiasts
  • Smaller riders and tandem stokers (due to the smaller minimum extension)
  • Comfort bike owners
The shorter linkage design still provides 1.3 inches of active stiction-free travel. The compression and rebound damping is handled by a single urethane elastomer, which can be changed to fit your size and riding style. 4G Thudbuster
