I saw drawings and liked them, especially the front hub body design. Thought I'd share these.

Looks like a pretty cool hubset to me! That radial NDS on the rear disc side makes me a bit skeptical though. Seems like it should be 2x both sides.

Seems like they don't consider brake forces on the rear to be such a big issue. Surprised they don't skip the delicately sculpted mount and go with centerlock, though.

I aggree a centerlock would look neater, but I think manufacturers have to pay Shimano a license fee to use it.
