YES 420 Snowboard
Don't let the short measurements of the YES 420 Snowboard scare you away. This board makes up for its lack of length with sheer, wide-footprint volume. This powder beast has a huge surface area to turn your average powder day into a day to remember. Take it from us, there is nothing better than actually "surfing" pow. Especially good for tree runs due to its reduced swing weight the YES 420 Snowboard will certainly offer the spiritual awakening you've been seeking.
PowRock – Extended rocker on the nose for float, flat underfoot, and rocker in the tail.
Flex Rating: 5 – (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)
Radial Tapered – Inspired by Steve Lis, and 420 the revolution that occurred when kneeboards influenced surfboard design. Powder is all about speed and flotation. Displacement of a board’s volume is affected by more than just length. With the 420 for example, we’re able to get the stability and float normally associated with much longer boards by punching out the waist width and drastically chopping the length. The 148 for example has the same circumference and base surface as a traditional 160, but it’s mass is located much closer to your feet resulting in more manoeuvrability and far less swing weight 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 centre of effective edge because the difference in nose and tail shovel keeps you from going over the nose.
Weightless Core – The Weightless Core strikes a critical balance between light weight and strength. Using a lower density species of Poplar in areas that are not as structured and Paulownia in the areas that are, Yes. was able to shave precious weight. This helps the board not only float, but "feel" floaty.
Triax – Robust torsional flex.
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.
