I have next years catalogue from the Vegas trade show in front of me, and indeed it appears that the top of the carve line is now endowed with Texalium and the b4 profile, as well as new names and slightly changed graphics. I don't have an old catalogue to compare footprints. There is some type of new ceramic insert along an arc of the base edge of the waist and mid area that claims to help the higher wear problems found along the bottom due to carving pressure. Turn radius is between 14 and 16m. A couple new big Phatties too. New gear already...I'm still tweaking my "old" new gear!
