I have put my new 8m Pivot on top of the 2017. The only difference seems to be the trailing edge. No dacron anymore, but doubled with canopy cloth in that shark teeth fashion. Looks like that this year it is about weight optimization. I am curious if I will feel any difference when flying.

Keep us posted!

I don't know how much weight they shaved off but it could impact the weight distribution making it more front-heavy & thus affect the drift. Just theorizing of course.
