Sounds promising!

Will be good to have another light brake option to choose from.

Sorry to say, more info won't be released before Eurobike. As that drawing that was posted was just that, a drawing. Expect to see some changes to it.

Good, cuz those things are ugy, even for a CAD drawing.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed on this one, KCNC seems to be putting out top notch stuff lately.

whatever the weight, they could lose some more by making it a Campy brake without the release.

Seriously, this is about as far along as a drawing on napkin at a coffee shop.

You're almost correct, except that pk0r held and inspected the latest generation of prototypes at Eurobike. Hopefully they'll have a finished production version at Interbike and not just the prototypes.

I don't think we'll see them too quickly but I think the end of the year is very reasonable to see them in full production.
