Looks like an old s3 post?

My 2010 s3 post was all carbon, and failed around the bolt which tensions the saddle down...

No mine failed around the rear hex headed bolt, probably from many saddle changes and over tightening...

As just suggested, warranty the post and get a newer, all carbon one...
