I'm putting together a new bike (2018 S-Works Venge Vias Disc) and purchased a "Specialized Power Elite". Today I tried installing it and can't get the saddle to stay in position firmly. Am I doing something wrong, or do I have the wrong clamp/saddle rail combo? Are there multiple clamp sizes on these bikes?

I believe this is the clamp I have:

Here are some pictures. Even with the bolt torqued down the saddle still rocks forward and backward.

If it's the same clamp from the link you posted, it looks like the clamp is for 7mm round and carbon oval rails. Try to turn clamp.

Wrong clamp size for that saddle.
The frame should come with one clamp for 7mm rails and one for 7x9mm(oval) rails.

yeah, the power elite / expert won't have the carbon rails on it.... which are 7 x 9. It will have Ti rails 7 x 7
