Thompson Bicycles is a Belgian family business set up in 1921 by Hector De Smet in the town of Geraardsbergen, home of the “Muur van Geraardsbergen” which became famous through the Tour of Flanders.
As soon as it was founded, Thompson started full in- house production, from design to frame building, painting and assembling. The public quickly got to know the Thompson motto: “High quality bikes at a fair price”.
Pure speed and sharp handling define Thompson race bikes. Ultra stiff and optimised for race conditions, these bikes are designed with power transfer in mind and are built to ensure that every precious watt of power reaches the rear wheel. The geometry is focused on providing sharp yet predictable handling, so you can carry as much speed as possible through the corners before giving it full gas in the sprints or on the climbs.View our Race bike rangeBuilt for RacersForce from £2,349 to £5,599
Brutal pace and maximum power transfer is guaranteed with the Force. Every element of the Force’s design is focused on making this frame as laterally stiff as possible. Stiff at the BB and at the front end of the fuselage, this chassis ensures that every ounce of energy and every watt of power is deployed to help you put distance into your rivals. Explode out of every corner, surge up every climb and unleash the beast in every sprint. Sharp handling, sharp looks and savage power all in one package.
