"Superior" in stiffness? Any advantage over a full twin lateral would be limited by the seat tube/lateral joint which is little different from a full twin lateral design. This design doesn't have the advantages claimed for the Herse style with its single tube from head tube to seat tube.
I like it though. It's a nice variation.
