Does anyone know if the new 3T Dorico LTD seatpost (with setback) is compatible with a carbon rails on a Fizik saddle?

The Fizik carbon rails are a little bigger than most.

Works perfectly well for me too. I have the 3T Dorico LTD post with Antares 00 saddle on two of my bikes and I've never had an issue.

I used the Dorico post with Selle Italia 7 x 9mmm carbon rails with no problem....other than the standard problem of the Dorico post not tightening securely in the rear that is common to all rails. I used loctite with acceptable results.

do yal notice that the clamp mech makes an 'imprint' on the braided carbon? like dents it. i know dents isn't the right word.

I've used a Dorico Ltd with a K:1 and (now) an R1, absolutely fine.

With reference to the loosening thing I'm now on my second Dorico, the first one was a bugger for loosening off, the replacement however is fine- no problems at all.

I think it's a bad combo.
It doesn't hold the seat in place, unless you over tighten it so that the rails get (dents??) (Like @nathanong87 said)
But it looks cool. Imo Ritchey has the best solution for oversized carbon rails
