Default Lib Tech TRS HP Horsepower

I see that Lib Tech is now introducing the TRS HP which seems like a great thing considering many have said that the TRS would be more amazing if it was a bit lighter. I'd really like to pick one up, but the highest up they go is a 159 which also carries a narrow waist of 25.4, I believe.

I stand at 6'2, 205 pounds, with a size 12 boot (Burton shrink-tech sz 11), but so I dont think I'd get the most out of it. So I guess my question is, is because its a new release do you think they will expand it to a 162cm as well or can I just have one built with Libs new build a board system?

Otherwise I think I'll either go for a regular TRS 162 or a Banana Magic 161

Horsepower construction would go geberally unnoticed by the public if it wasnt advertised or carried the same price. Its not better in any practical presence that I've ever felt.

Just get a normal TRS.

i was under the impression that the hp "upgrade" was more of an environmentally friendly marketing gimmick (using the basalt instead of the carbon fiber) then an actual improvement performance wise. they say its light and strong but i haven't seen anything on how much lighter and stronger it is comparatively.

The TRS is also different profile for 2014 its XC2 less rocker and way more camber, not to be confused with c3.

Danny Kass 158 is wider, don't know about it being lighter. It is also stiffer.

You should be able to fit. I ride a 154 TRS; 23.5" 15*,-15* stance with size 12 Nike ZF1's and no issues.

Yeah I found 2 161.5 T. Rices in the same size, one HP one not, and using the old hand scales there was no noticeable difference.

I got a 2014 trs horsepower.

Dunno if it's any better than the non HP version. But it's a sweet board. And it's kinda cool to have the HP just for the sake of something a little unique.
