Straight from there web site.

You may well have seen this brake already - it’s been all over the web since it was shown at the World Cup in Fort Wiliam.

Due to be launched officially in October at ‘The Cycle Show’ in London, ‘Eurobike’ in Germany and ‘Interbike’- the new (as yet un-named) ‘Freeride’ brake has been causing a lot of interest.
A 2 piston caliper with a totally new redesigned lever, bite point control for lever feel and rotor options - including our new patented ‘Vented’ rotor. Most journo’s and riders seem to be interested in what the ‘vented’ rotor was all about - what we can tell you is that it stays 15% cooler than a standard rotor.
Combine this with the big 2 piston design, burly looks and a new colour finish (not the ‘toilet block’ yellow as seen previously on the web - it will be a steel blue colour) and your looking at perhaps the hottest brake of the year.
Don’t ring now and order! Some specs are still being finalised and production won’t start until then - but we will be ready for ordering in November. The brake won’t replace anything in the range, but will sit between a MM4 and a Mono 6. It will be Post mount caliper only, working with the bracket system - and only on 203mm rotors.
This could be the most powerful brake you’ve ever used.

Mmmmm! CAD drawings :thumbsup: :D !
As for the brakes they look pretty nice, would be nice to know if they've had any success quieting them down compared to the normal Hope's. So a holy rotor, wonder what would happen if I took my normal Hope rotor to the machine shop and let them drill it up like that???
