The EVO in these pics seems to clear pretty well. Maybe you're sitting well into the middle of the saddle, instead of on your sit bones. The toupe in your pics is the original, super-flexy, super-sag-prone one, so I'm not surprised by that.
Edit: sorry about the pixelated photos.

I have the same seatpost but with a carbon rail Antares saddle and it has done the same thing, not quite to the same extent as yours though but it's still annoying. It also did it with a Prologo Nago and for the same reasons (not enough clearance) some saddles won't even fit on this seatpost.

I think I see your problem. The hologram is missing from your Power Balance Bracelet so you are suffering a gravity attack.

I just bought a seatpost a lot like that. It appears to have the same sort of yokes. Mine weigh 25g. KCNC yokes do the same job at 9g.

When I try with my hands the EVO doesn't touch, but when I ride it ...there are traces

I just now figure it out, what are KCNC yokes.

I believe that will solve the problem.

Maybe if the holowgram would be still there, my brains can work faster.
thanks Bob

Will KCNC yokes work with S-WORKS SL CARBON seatpost?

Can't say for sure but they take an M6 bolt. They may require some minor sanding to fit.

edit: Have weighed the KCNC yokes and they are 12g not 9

I've had the exact same problem with the S-Works 2-bolt seatpost and Romin Evo Pro.
