Has anyone seen the new Ritchey carbon fork being sold anywhere? Retail or the net?

No link yet. Its in their (Ritcheys) latest print catalog that I picked up off the counter at Excel this past Saturday. It has "BLAT" technology which stands for Boundry Layer Aerodynamic Technology or something to the effect. They claim it is akin to dimples on a golf ball to cut through the wind better. Form the picture in the catalog (with a "NEW!" sign next to it) it looks like the BLAT treatment is on the inside of the fork where the tire is.
