These look nice and would compliment the Kish if I went over to hydro, but I can't see anyone selling them.
They're not that new are they?

I think that the ones in the pic are ltd edition maybe?

The European website ( http://www.formula-brake.com/en/bikes/r1 ) only has the ugly ones on it ;)

Nowhere near as nice as the chromed ones.

Yup, the users I know rate them over anything else (Hope, Shimano, Hayes, Avid...)

I've not used them as my Hope mono mini's work well enough.
