Fizik saddle? You need to get new seatpost "ears" that can accommodate the taller rails.

Can't tell what brand of seatpost you're using from the pics. But most offer a solution as this is a common problem these days

The head looks like a Ritchey or at least a copy.

Ritchey "ears" are available in different sizes to suit carbon rails.

Sure looks like a Ritchey WCS TT Seatpost. So yes, get the Ritchey 7x9.6mm carbon rail clamp kit. I got it for my Superlogic seatpost and Arione R1 saddle. Fits great. Cost under $15.
