MTB version. https://bikerumor.com/2019/06/24/darimo ... road-stem/
So what is the difference between road and MTB stems to give a 10gm difference? Is it just bar clamping diameter or is that the same?

probably attribute the weight difference to a fully removable faceplate and the 2 additional bolts to fasten it in place.

Personally I think the MTB stem is much better looking. I would opt for a single piece bar and stem!

Got it. Shame you can't fit a compact road bar through, it would be awesome! Wonder if Darimo have managed to fit their own road bar through though?
