We didn't hear much about it this year.
But I just looked up their website and saw this

1. Radial constructiontm tube with taped seams for higher pressure. 120gm profile laminate.
Hidden seams for better aerodynamics.
2. 125 micron polyester/ PVC tubes.
3. 10% wider projected areaDump valve for quick easy deflation and storage.
4. 4mm twin tip battens.
5. 65gm Xpression cloth
6. Power panel centre section.
7. Leach line adjustment for extra power in light winds or for heavy riders.
The unveiling of the innovative new parabolic collection reveals the next step toward the perfect range of wings. Advanced technology and constant developments in the integration of design, materials and construction have allowed us to redefine the current state of the art in water-borne foils. Kitesurfer presents new second generation wings,with a full range to fullfil the needs of all Kitesurfers.
The performance is enhanced by a substantial 10% increase in projected area, achieved using a combination of engineering and aerodynamics. Airspeed and turning are improved by the specially designed power tips. Radial Construction and taped seams ensure the front tube is the strongest available.
Why would anyone stay loyal to us if our wings fell apart after 2 minutes, this is what we realised from the conception, and why we have worked hard to create the maximum strength and reinforcement in all our designs, pioneering original techniques and materials, making the Parabolic wing the ultimate in full strength construction.
A unique blend of materials and cutting methods give stabilty and strength throughout the design. Radial construction on the front tube is the ultimate construction method unique to us, while the Power panel principle gives the ideal cut for correct stress distribution and shape.
Super stable 65gm/m2 ripstop.
120gm/m2 warp orientated laminate of film and woven cloth. Thicker threads running throughout the cloth give tear resistance and stress orientation.
High quality lightweight inflatable tubes.
Radial constructiontm, the ultimate construction for front tubes and unique to us. Using material properties and dynamic construction to give a unique strength and versitility to front tube.
POWER PANEL :
The ideal cut for correct stress distribution and shape, powerful center section combines with clean tips for enhanced performance.
