The new S-EC Speedlite Bracket features a very similar compact and lightweight design as the original inexpensive S-type Bracket
Hotshoe flashes as well as the larger bare bulb Godox Witstro units are simply clamped in place by the flash head.
(And with Witstro prices recently dropping to more accessible levels they are becoming very popular now as well).
The S-EC Speedlite Bracket will mount regular Elinchrom mount softboxes and modifiers, as well as pop up Ezybox style softboxes mounted over the outer lip of the bracket. And there is an umbrella mount built in as well.
The S-Type and S-EC Speedlite Brackets are made of fairly sturdy plastic (with a metal insert in the light stand mount) and will support medium softboxes quite easily.
The Godox Speedlite brackets are part of a new breed of speedlite brackets which started with the all metal Phottix HS Speed Mount II, supporting the flash directly via the flash head.
This reduces any stress on the flash foot, and any radio triggers attached, which in turn reduces the chance of damaging them or unreliable connections with the triggers. As well as creating a more compact bracket to transport.
