The ultimate powder board.....FACT!

All boards are professionally waxed and carefully packed ready for you to hit the snow!

HOW COULD YES IMPROVE THE POWDER PERFORMANCE OF ONE OF THE FUNNEST BOARDS DESIGNED IN DECADES?

By adding the most ground breaking new technology our sport has seen in decades. That’s how.

Last year YES launched its revolutionary POWDER HULL tech on the 20/20. The complex bottom contour that quite literally made a true twin outline float as well as a directional board does in powder. Working as a scoop at the front, sucking more snow in and lifting the nose while simultaneously allowing the back to sink like a swallowtail would.  This opened up a world of possibility in powder to freestyle riders not wanting to leave the symmetrical balance of their twins.

By applying Powder Hull to a narrower, slightly longer version of the 420, YES have created a board that is more reactive, livelier and more floaty that you ever thought possible.

There are not many boards that we test that completely blow our minds and expectations but the 420 powder hull did just that. There are lots of good and kooky looking powder boards around this season but we think that this is the cream of the crop. It really feels like you are flying over the snow, fast smooth and effortless. Do not be put off by the short length. You will never sink with this board and those tight tree lines are now yours for the taking.

 

Tech Talk

SINTERED SPEC

This is the term we use and is the grey zone many companies play in. We call it Sintered Spec because it’s hardness and chemical properties are very close to true sintered and it’s on-snow performance is also very close to true sintered - but it’s formed using the extrusion process. How? – Well the raw material is actually pre-consumer recycled (meaning it never left the factory) sintered base material. So while the heating and extrusion process has softened it slightly, it’s still much harder than true Extruded.

WEIGHTLESS CORE

Designed specifically for the 420, 420PH and 20/20.

The weightless core strikes a critical balance between lightweight and strength. Using a lower density species of Poplar in areas that are not as structural and Paulownia in the areas that are, we’re able to shave precious weight off our beloved 420 and now the 20/20. This helps a board not only float, but “feel” floaty.

RADIAL TAPERED + 3D POWDER HULL

A slight taper (12mm) helps keep the nose up without loosing the tail’s ability to hold in hard-pack. Stance is only slightly set back from center of effective edge because the difference in nose and tail shovel keeps you from going over the nose.

The 3D Powder Hull starts with a base profile that combines 2 distinct rocker lines that, when blended together, create a pronounced base concave in the nose and tail. The centerline is fully rockered starting from the insert packs, all the way to the tips of the bluntly shaped nose and tail. Out at the contact edges is a more conventional base profile that we use on many of our other boards. The resultant concave across the nose and tail acts differently at the leading end of the board than it does at the trailing end when riding in deep snow. At the leading end (nose), the concave draws air under the board – just as a concave spoon-nose does on longboards in the surf – causing lift and floatation. As the snow moves across the base it releases off the tail and the exaggerated rocker line along the center, causes the tail to drop downward.
