I bought Fizik antares vs braided carbon.
But it turned out that it was not suitable for this clamp

You can probably modify the clamp to work. Do you know any local machinists? Someone with a manual mill could likely take care of it in 30 minutes (just guessing). Or try it with a Dremel. Saddle clamps generally are not a super precise fit unlike seatposts, stems, handlebars, etc.

That's how it looks in a relaxed position and under pressure on the rails.
I think that you can somehow stuff this saddle there, but you need another clamp.
And I do not know if someone from the local machinists can do clamp for me.

That doesn't look that bad to me. If anything, I'd just want to deepen the grooves a bit for a little more side to side support. A round file and a vise would do be all that's needed.

Slightly off topic, but will this adaptor work on any mono-link seatpost or is it only for a Simplon post?

I went to the local mechanic. He advised me to find the bolt longer and tighten it. He suggested that everything should be fine.
What do you think about it?
Will there be too much pressure on the seatpost and the rail saddle?

I can not say that I did it right, because I have not yet experienced it, but it works in practice.
The bolt was longer than it was before. Now 35mm, approx, but i shall cut it after find need lenght

What I was afraid of did not happen. The edges of the plates do not crush into the carbon rails.
Only now I do not know with what effort it is necessary to twist the bolt. 6 Nm?
