Carrying on the anodised colour coding of their other components this XSC1.0 seatclamp from Aerozine is about as minimal as you get. One for the weight weenies.

The XSC1.0 is machined from 7075 alloy which removes about as much material as possible to still allow it to do its job. What's left weighs just 8g.

It comes in the two most common seat tube diameters of 31.8mm and 34.9mm. Providing you haven't got too thick a paintjob it'll slip on snugly, stopping as the internal lip rests on top of the tube.

Plenty of material has been left around the bolt area to resist cracking from loosening and tightening though you don't have to apply too much torque as the clamp provides plenty of pressure for the seatpost and frame interaction.

It's priced at £15.99 which can be considered expensive when you can get cheap cast clamps for a few quid but up against other super light machined clamps it's about on the money.

Overall the Aerozine XSC1.0 is a neat finishing product for customising your frame. It looks good and fits well and on the whole is priced well too. The option of eight various colours means one should match your bike too.

With 20 years of road cycling and over 150,000 miles in his legs it's safe to say Stu is happiest when on the bike whatever the weather. Since writing his first review for road.cc back in 2009 he has also had a career in engineering including 3D-CAD design and product development, so has a real passion for all of the latest technology coming through in the industry but is also a sucker for a classic steel frame, skinny tyres, rim brakes and a damn good paintjob.
His fascination with gravel bikes is getting out of control too!
