I had that seatpost on a bike last season. I almost broke my tailbone when it failed. Not a good place to save weight IMHO. I only weigh 175lbs

Oof that's scary. I thought roval was a well respected brand, how did yours fail? It certainly is feathery, so it's not surprising that it's not the most durable thing...

I assumed based on the price that those Roval posts were rebranded/licensed S-Works posts. Is that not the case?

The carbon around the rear bolt cracked suddenly and allowed the whole saddle clamp assembly to loosen. The seat fell off within a few seconds. Thankfully I was able to react/stand when I felt the initial wiggle/movement from the saddle.

I think this will take some real miles to sort out. Early indications are that this is an excellent riding, very "crisp" handling bike, but a lot of that might come down to the light stiff wheels and 23mm tires I have on it. I really like the ride so far and am looking forward to some more miles on it. I do own a few really nice aluminum frames to compare to, so time will tell
