yeah. it will be within months. the launch will be staggered between countries. from various non-official sources i gather, the launch in HK will be in Feb/March time frame, and it will be later for the US/Canada.

I think they wrote on their facebook page that they will launch in the US in July. If you are interested in a direct answer just post on their wall.

The launch in US is planned for March 2013 (despite the last quote saying Summer 2013). I don't know if this means sales will start in March or if products will be presented in March. They should also have a web site coming very soon. As for Canada, they said that they are still trying to figure out some stuff so they are not ready yet.
Sorry for the messy post, took me a while to find all the info and write it here. I'll try to make it look a little better.

Shoes looks a continuation of the original BD Feather rather than BD Feather 2 (as "feared"). Wouldn't hold my breath for the rest of the clothes or shoes though ...

just read from another overseas forum where a shop had demos available.
The AdiPower apparently feels a LOT like the VT80.
Each series will split into "Pro" and "Tour". No clue what that's about.
We should ask Cheung to give Olym Sports HK a shout and get his hands on the demos
