Would you consider this a problem? I'm not worried that it will snap, but just to be sure. I'm 93kg/203lbs. The Dash saddle is reinforced.

I'm interested in the forums thoughts on this too.

At the least I'd take a fine small file to any sharp edges on the clamps and especially the rocker saddle halfpipe thing.

What post is that?

Dont see it as a problem, my alu post have the same size of cradle combined with a full carbon saddle and nothing has happened yet - BTW im 6,1(188cm) and 320lbs(145kg).
Thinks that KCNC makes a "cradle and yoke" set too use with carbon saddles.
