    Good bet is they get their own version of the ICE-Tech heat-sink pads and steel/aluminum sandwiched rotors like the XTR and SLX discs. Probably see similar changes in the levers too. Hope they keep the two piston caliper design.

    did shimano redesign slx for 2011 to use the vented pads? or do they just happen to fit the same pads as xtr?

    SLX has been totally redesigned. But I don't know if the pads will be interchangeable with the old SLX and XT, I suspect they aren't.

    Yeah they are 2012 but I think that they are coming out in mid-2011. At least according to singletrack magazine www.singletrackworld.com/
