I have a pair somewhere and believe them to be Nuke Proof too... mine are quite a golden colour on the lever. Very painful to use in the cold...

Got some of these and whilst they look nice and are light, they're a shite design. Difficult to tighten 'em up with the lever as they won't pass a Manitou fork leg. Once they are tight though they seem ok.
