Its 43g weight means the Salsa seatclamp is right up there in the weight stakes. The deep collar and long, nicely curved lever combine to make a tight closure that’s reasonably easily to achieve. The ﬁnish is nice and slick, with plenty of sizes and colours to choose from.
The length and shape of the lever means your hands don’t take a beating with each adjustment of your saddle height. A tool-free tension adjuster would be a welcome addition to this trick little component, though. The price is quite steep too.
