According to their website they are ciamillo.
Adding context by linking the Ciamillo AWOL? thread.

Oooo well those are pretty.
And the price is nice.

Fantastic, welcome Ewa.

I'm glad Ted is getting some help on the business side of things so he can focus on the engineering.

They handle well. I would say a little better than the Micros. Set up is a bit easier. The most ineresting aspect outside of the construction is that the quick release is much easier to use than his prior evolutions of brakes. I've ridden the mountains in South Central PA with no issue and some wicked fast descents. What I have also seen is that the brake has no flex to it. THMs there was some flex to them but you cannot fault them. Are they better than THM, I would say yes easily in terms of weight but also performace. The asthetics are also different though and that does play into decisions. The Lekki 8s are definitely a touch industrial looking to them. They look good with my eTap and just as good with my Record.

@Ewa, welcome to the forum!
One question, how is Ted handling all the complains he got from his (past?) business?

Ted address my past issues and went above and beyond from my point of view. That said I can see why people are worried, and in that case I would order from Joe at

Are people seriously giving this guy money? He's ripped people off for years. Do people not have any principles about who they purchase from?

Well said Ryan.
My thoughts exactly. Every item sold still lines his pockets. Wouldn't buy his products ever.

You're the distributor and not an ordinary customer though, right?
