Does anyone know when the carbon Nokon BRAKE cable set is coming out?

Thanks for any answers.

It's not. And DO NOT attempt to use the carbon derailleur "pearls" for brakes. I stubbornly tried this against the advice of others and discovered they were too fragile... that was nearly 4 years ago.

To my knowledge, NOKON gave up on their attempt at carbon for brakes.

In the end I contacted Nokon and they told me they are developing a carbom brake cable set but in order for it to be tough enough it will be close to weight of alloy version. Also most likely not available till after Eurobike 2012.
