You'll damage the seat if it's pushed all the way back on its rails since the weight is largely at the back of the saddle and there is a huge amount of leverage with respect the seatpost clamps. With the saddle pushed all the way forward on its rails \[as shown in these photos\] there is no problem as the weight is supported directly by the seatpost clamps that are below it. That said it looks weird and if the folks who own the company are riding their bikes like that you'd think they'd steepen the STA. OTOH I am putting setback droppers on bikes with steep STAs to get a position I can ride comfortably. With a steep enough STA that doesn't work and I can't ride the bike. So perhaps they are trying to shoot for a middle ground to capture the most potential customers.
