I have SR EPS on 2 bikes, but my front mechs don't have this sculpting, and neither does the version on Campagnolo.com.

Given the changes to SR RS (aluminium cage), is this a new version of the carbon cage?

Good eye. Looks like the carbon plate is now one piece all the way to the back metal plate. Before they use to bond a plastic piece to the carbon plate. Alot of people had problems with that plastic piece coming apart or break. I notice its also thicker compared to the old cage to improve rigidity and reliability.
