Loaded AmXc seat clamp - in brief£16.99

Curved QR

BikeRadar score4/5

Loaded’s smooth, curved quick-release lever is long and comfortable to use, offering plenty of leverage. Its action is aided by a thin brass washer, which isn’t as substantial as those found on some pricier clamps but should be more reliable than plastic over time. 

There are numerous colour options, and the 36g weight is perfectly respectable. Most seat clamps have a finger tightening bolt, but the AmXc has a recessed Allen key head, which is a bit of a faff to adjust mid-ride.
