My USE 31,6 -> 27,2mm shim weighs 21 grams after I trimmed it down to correspond to the minimum insertion mark on my Easton EC70 post and also extends to just under the toptube in my frame. Originally it was 19mm longer and 26 grams.

Their larger diameter shims are all made from "special filled engineering thermoplastic" aka plastic to keep the weight down. Good product that keep my carbon post from slipping...
