If they can come down another 60-80 grams it will be competitive - but looks like a nice system.

From Bikeradar:

"The whole setup, including the receptacle, tips the scales at just 140 grams – an even lighter titanium version is on the way. That said, it reportedly offers twice the bending stiffness of a traditional quick release. It's also authorized by the UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale), so it should be kosher to use in high-profile bike races."

Topolino founder Rafe Schlanger is now looking at licensing the technology to hub manufacturers.
