These liners look like they're a strange cross between a standard liner and a fully thermo liner. It's very clear that they're built by Intuition (they have the Intuition stamp on the side) and they have the full "sole piece" like my Intuitions do. I find it odd that they chose to include those neoprene side panels.
I'm also concerned that it looks like Intuition's glued on Power Wrap design has come over to this new liner (instead of the stitched in stiffer foam panel that was used on the Thermoflex liners). I have had horrible experiences forming the liners when dealing with that glued on piece (it tends to separate and fold when heated).
skidbump - can you confirm whether or not that stiffer black "support" foam around the cuff and ankle is glued on or not?
P.S. I exchanged e-mails with Intuition today (they're back in China - again) and they said they will have their new taller liner (by over 2cm) delivered in mid-February. So I'm gonna give it one more shot with the Intuitions. In the mean time barretscv was nice enough to hook me up with a pair of new Thermoflexes to try out.
