Its part of a RaceFace DH chain device thing that I had kicking about in my 'box'o'shite'. Works a treat and a little better looking than the rear mounted things.

The brakes are superb- plenty of bite and lever feel but do eventually fade on longer fast descents. The floating rotors have helped with this Problem to a certain extent and when all is said and done, they are much better than the cantis on all my other bikes! They are also superlight at around 300grms each and beautifully machined- a real work of art.
