As best I understand it, Ashaway took their popular SuperNick string design and introduced a relatively new material named Zyex into the outer jacket of the string. It’s supposed to mean that SuperNick ZX has improved durability and holds tension better than the classic SuperNick strings, but still retains their playability.
This string is 17 gauge (1.25 mm), which is on the thicker side for squash strings.
Update: Ashaway have also come out with a thinner version called the Ashaway SuperNick ZX Micro.
Paul from PDH Sports did a roundup of several Ashaway strings, including this one.
Mathieu Castagnet has been spotted using these strings:

Here’s a picture from PDH Sports. They say Nick Matthew will be using these strings soon, though I don’t think I’ve seen him using them.
