The machining on this seatclamp looks like pure class, as you’d expect from Hope, and the overall ﬁnish is great, with a super-smooth lever action. The deep collar gives offers a good even clamping force that will hold the post tightly.
The tool-free, super-grippy adjuster makes it a breeze to adjust tension. The lever itself is quite short though, so you’ll ﬁnd yourself having to crank it up quite tight to achieve your desired level of tightness. Weight is good at 49g.
