On the website they say the bigger sizes will come next year, and that they will be 12, 15, 18 and 21.

From watching video review with Ed..(did not understand many words) i saw some new things

Similar to Speene X19 the leading edge has support from very thin curved battens

There "seem" to be a batten support at each and every end of the air cell compartments

Creating a stiffer LE profile is great idea for SP4..prevents deformation..improves aerodynamics

Another improvement to increase air pressure in more air intakes...counted 6 for the 8M SP4

We may see the return of 7 intakes in the larger sizes of SP4....SP2 & 2.5 had 7...SP3 "only 5"

I may have noticed a bit different air intake "entry way" also...but not so sure about that.

What did you guys see or know so far :D

Down to three bridle rows from four, so only one pulley. I agree that the intakes seem to be sleeker. Aspect ratio similar to the Psychos.

Interested to try one.

All the riders were on the 'old' Flyradical3 boards, not the 'new' ones - that have been around and in vids for about 6 months or so?

... so, how old is that vid? How long have they had the Speed4 for then eh hmm?

No more jet flaps! Also, seems like the trailing edge has a saw tooth shape going on. Can't wait to get this kite.

I will order a 10m for sure. Sound interesting because it will be much more stable in gusty wind with the new LE insert.

They have been testing the S4 since April in Portugal, long before the boards were available to consumers a few months ago. I am personally happy as they have been fine tuning the kites for months and only when they were completely ready they released them.
