I was wondering which seat post clamps everyone would recommend to shave a few grams. I had a new ultimate that worked well for a year or so then it spontaneously snapped. I know this is not the best place to shed a few grams, but I know there has to be a lighter alternative to the stock aluminum clamp I'm getting with my z1.

I have been using a Woodman Deathgrip Ti SL one for a while, weighs 10.5g and I haven't had any issues (and I am a big guy).

If you put some clear coat on you seatpost so its a tight tight fit then you can use any light light clamp .
You will not need to torque it to much . MT ZOOM do a 5/6 grm clamp .

I was about to say the Token one. I have a couple in the shop and I want to use one but all three of my road frames simply dont need a clamp. They use a bolt. I will test on tommorrow on a shop bike and report back.
