Honestly? This is probably easier to manufacture, particularly on a carbon rear end, not to mention likely less expensive. It's a lot cleaner looking. The potential for incorrect installation is next to zero assuming the person threading the bolt in knows how to, well, thread a bolt in properly. And if you do somehow mess up the threaded inserts inside the frame, I bet they're easy to heli coil. Besides all of that, this brake mount only relies on bolts that are oriented in a vertical fashion. IS mounts rely on two bolts that are horizontal and likely subject to quite high shearing forces. Besides all of the above, it's also aesthetically pleasing, which I for one think matters if I'm dropping multiple thousands of dollars on a bike.
