I like that they shortened the battens for easier packing, but the boom is still the problem for me. But It looks like maybe the boom section where you grip is shorter than previous models and may collapse to a shorter length overall.   What about maybe a 3 piece boom for travel?

This is a pretty big departure from v1.  It is very cool that Duotone is mixing it up so much for season 2.  I am interested to see what they did with strut handles on their other design.

You can see the handles. Did you swipe right?  Very flat handles.

I think it shows removable half battens.

Looks over engineered to save the boom design to me. Then again, if they can get the stability and drift of the F1 with the quick direct maneuverability of the boom, it'll be a winner to me. What do you guys think durability will be like with that line running across the canopy?

I had missed that.  A little hard to see what is going on there but it looks like 3 long fabric handles.  No rigid handles yet but it does look like a nice, light minimal design.  Hard to tell much about the shaping from these images.

Boy that white wing looks interesting.
Minimal is right, just a few sections on that leading edge, looks like 8 total, compared to the new Naish which may have like 24 sections.
I hope the Price is minimal also...  ;)

Take a look on that line in the center.. they say it gives impressive rigidity to the profile.
what do you think?

Plus they finally now pack almost the half size!

FYI to thos who are wondering.  The new Echo wings (with boom) will be arriving in the US in April we are hoping with all of our fingers crossed.  The first batch of Wings is almost sold out already.  Our most frothy dealers have put in their pre-orders.  The Inflatable wing will not be released until the summer with best-case scenario.  But with Covid looming anything could happen, some factories have already announced temporary shutdowns that will inevitably delay the arrival of the new foil gear.  Any other questions feel free to ask here.  I have been recently promoted to Lead on North, Central, and SO America Wing sales for Duotone along with my normal Fanatic SUP/Wing sales position.  Looking forward to what the future brings in this exciting new sport.  I will be posting a video of the unboxing of the new wing Echo Wing, High Aspect Hydrofoils, and Sky Wing boards asap.  Stay tuned. 8)
