I think it happens because both boards are an evolution of the 160 and 161 (proven wonderfull designs...).
I use compete in FW and have sailed Starboard since the 158.The 162 wasn't my cup of tea (after a great season with the 161) so sold it ans re-bought an "old" 160 with great sailing pleasure again.
Can't wait the new HWR...

I think the new Formula has a carbon top and a wood bottom. The top will be painted white and there is two models HWR and LWR.

Is very Strange for me that the HWR ( Heavy Weight Rider) has less volume than LWR ( Ligth Weight Rider) from:

Nice Boards Just like my 161.... No change for this year.

Hi Michelb,

This boards was develop from the F 160 & F 161 and the 160 was more orientate for light racers despite it have more volume than the F 161.

We have the same for the LWR and HWR, but this difference is not this who make the board more for light racers or heavy racers, but the width in the tail.

If you compare the F 160/161 to the LWR/HWR, there is a lot difference who are less visible but this improvement make the difference like :

- New rocker with the 2mm tail kick
- New Cut aways who help
- New construction in Wood/Carbone who give you the nice water touch from the wood with control and the rigidity and lightness from the Carbone. Result better acceleration with control in all conditions.
All this modifications help for the top speed but also for the up wind angle

Al the best

and now the inevitable question...

which fins will work with the LWR and HWR? By the way, I think that the R20 is out of the game...not very successful if we see the equipment list in the last Europeans / Allegro Cup among the top riders.

Cheers,
Rafa

Hi Raffig,

All fins who was working great on the F160 and F161 will work perfectly on the LWR and HWR.

All the best
