Om my TMR02, im currently using Romin Evo saddle with Ti rail. Would like to use the Romin Evo Pro with carbon rail but not sure if ok to use with this type of clamp. It's bolted down from the top, so it's a bit hard to run a ratchet through the cut out to torque down.

Thoughts?

I use a saddle with carbon rails for 3 seasons now without any problems.

Edit: the rails are "Carbo-Keramic"

Carbon saddle rails are solid, there is not really a risk of cracking them due to over tightening as there is with Seatposts or handlebars, which are hollow. So yes, it’s fine.

I have the same Selle San Marco Aspide saddle with oval carbon rails on both my bikes. One seat post has the proper cradle/clamp for ovalised carbon rails, the other just has the standard clamp for round rails. No issues with either. (But I'm 58kg.)

Thanks guys.. I recall on he Romin Evo pro they suggested not to use oval type of seat clamp. So hopefully should be ok. My ass is designed in with the Romin Evo pro so prefer to stick with that saddle.

Omg... 90g saddle only? Too bad DASH doesn't have those demo programs anymore...

I had a C64 Selle Italia saddle that I broke the saddle but the rails were fine. If the rails were hollow [Which I believe they are not] then they could crush and break. Since they are solid, I really do not think you could crush them.
