only weighs 5grams?
Has anyone actually tried it? Looks good for $35

Appears to be very similar to the New Ultimate clamp. I'm not sure about the Mt Zoom but the New Ultimate is about the same price and works very well. I've had mine on my bike for over two years and no issues.My bike is frame is finicky about clamps and many either had post slippage, creaked or both. The New Ultimate has none of the above.

there is not much info on MT ZOOM products on the internet.

I've got my MTB 740mm flat bar which weighted in at 165g, same weight as my 660mm ENVE flatbar...

How does the weight compare between the two clamps?
The slit where the clamp is on the new ultimate is diagonal, while the Mt Zoom is faced vertically?
Could this affect clamping performance?

Maybe its just fluke, but any clamp I've ever used that doesn't have a barrel nut (like most of the super light clamps), creaks like mad. Its so easy for the two faces to go beyond being perfectly parallel when tightened. For this reason I would be really interest in trying the Parts of Passion purist clamp (or similar design). Unfortunately it is a lot more money. Although there is one with a similar design for $26 usd on ebay that I saw.

I spoke with Mr zoom . I rang him to order a clamp . He did not have a new one in stock, he then told to me to hold on a second and dug a nearly new one in my size out of his stock . He let me have it at half price . when it turned up it was as good as new . Top chap in my opinion and clamp works fine.
