Orions are VERY sweet, but my god! They're friggin' expensive as far as brakes go! I can't think of any others that are more expensive! Sweet looking bike though.
I will not mount them on my Gios project because they are not Italian. But they match very nice!
Maybe I mount them on my other bike. But because I am a rider over 90 kg I first wan't to hear some reviews from guys that actually did ride the Orion brakes in racing conditions or downhill at high speed.
The price is high but if it is true that they even brake better than the AX Perseus then it would be worth is. Thier weight is the absolute minimum. Real WW stuff

Although my name is not HaHo and I only "play an UCI official on TV or in my dreams", I wanted to post a quick answer as this question often comes up.
This is one rule that I have never seen enforced by USA Cycling officials anywhere. Just imagine the work involved if USA Cycling official would have to play Weight Weenies.
In big races I can see someone possibly protesting, but that should be so rare and would most likely catch the officials offguard. In UCI ProTour event of course the chance to get checked and or protested against are much realistic of course.

thanks, herbert, but I am an offical... :O
it is because UCI rules are not enforced by USAC unless it is a UCI qualifier or national championship.
also, they have removed the 2007 compliance wording from the new rulebook...
