The Thudbuster seatpost from Cane Creek is the most effective and versatile suspension seatpost available. Our parallel-link technology provides a clear advantage in traction, comfort and control without sacrificing performance. Available in both Long Travel and Short Travel configurations, with a range of elastomer spring rates, the Thudbuster is tunable to match your weight and riding preference.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND THUDBUSTER
Working in the direct path of the natural travel of the rear wheel.
The Thudbuster technology stays in the direct path of the natural travel of the rear wheel. As a bump lifts the back of a bicycle, the rear wheel pushes up and foward into the rider. The Thudbuster works by compressing along the exact opposite path -- down and rearward -- absorbing force at the same rate: The net movement of the saddle is zero. Fully active elastomers provide approximately 3 inches (76mm, Long Travel) or 1.3 inches (33mm, Short Travel) of customizable suspension.
Riders of all types of bikes around the world rely on Thudbuster to provide higher levels of performance and comfort.
Hardtail Mountain Bikes
The hardtail resurgence is real. Endurance, single-speed and 29er riders are quickly discovering that simple damping technology yields vast improvements in ride quality and control.
Long, rough road rides become less fatiguing and more comfortable. The Thudbuster is perfect for touring and "cause" riders who find traditional saddle/post combos uncomfortable.
A happy stoker is essential to fun on a tandem. A Thudbuster can make the difference between a beaten-up rear end and just a little bump now and then.
Small-wheel bikes with high-pressure tires directly benefit from Thudbuster suspension.
In order to accomodate an engine, e-bikes feature, in general, very stiff and unforgiving frame designs. They are also ridden primarily in the saddle, rather than standing. The Thudbuster takes the edge off without changing the angle of your body in relation to the pedals.
