seatpost clamps?

Anyone know the clamping area of some of the lighter clamps like carbon ti, kcnc, token or woodman? The problem I have is my frame has a slight flare right below the clamp so I only have 13-14 mm of area where the clamp can fit. Tune looks like it won't fit because the top lip of the clamp would have a gap to the frame.

Thank you for the link, anyone know if carbon ti is 14mm clamping area or total height with lip?

Mt. Zoom clamp height is 10mm and it's quite light at ~6g.

yuniper is very thin height wise...but also very fragile. i snapped the one on my AX (probably made by yuniper..same design and size). i ended up getting a MCFK carbon one and fit perfectly...but a bit taller in height.

yuniper is alittle too fragile if it were for just my road bike it might be ok but it's going to be on my road/cross bike so it has it be strong and light. So far I narrowed it down to carbonti, contoltech settle or kcnc sc11 all should fit without hitting the flare in the frame. I've been riding the stock clamp the came with the frame but I weighted it and its 32g so it has to go. Looks like between the expander, top cap seat clamp and cutting the post 10cm I can save about 100g.
