Every monitor arm on this list would be a good choice for most people, but we prefer the EleTab Single Monitor Desk Mount. This one provides a good combination of reasonable price and ease-of-use with wide tilt angles and built-in cable management. This is one of the best monitor arms you can get for the price and will work great alongside a USB-C monitor. No matter which product you choose, any of these  monitor arms will prove strong and durable to hold up even large monitors.

EleTab also makes a Dual-Arm monitor desk mount for anyone who needs to mount two monitors, which lets you freely adjust both screens as you need to. Both arms can hold most flat-screen monitors under 18 lbs.
