YES | 20/20 SNOWBOARD | MENS | 2021
The Yes 20/20 Snowboard is all about big, playful maneuvers. It's about surfing, jumping, and landing. Yes redesigned its PowderHull technology last year by refining the bottom contours (for even better float) and improving pop and landings, and then went ahead and applied it to the 20/20. PH paired with their Weightless Core allows this board to handle like a champion, so you can pop, slash, and launch all day. And with a MidBite outline to make it versatile beyond those dreamy pow days, there's no need worry if the weather man under-forecasted. When you want your runs to mean something more, ride the Yes 20/20 Snowboard.
PowderHull 2.0 + Camber – The 3D PowderHull starts with a base profile combining two 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 is used on many other Yes. boards. The resulting 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 long boards in the surf - causing list and flotation. As the snow moves across the base, it releases off the tail and the exaggerated rocker line along the center, causing the tail to drop downward.
Flex: 7 (1 = soft, 10 = stiff)
True Twin – A completely symmetrical outline houses a centered stance that is effective on edge, a tip and tail, and is identical at both ends of the board. The radial sidecut is effective and predictable. The overall shape allows complete freedom of expression by keeping the board a neutral, yet responsive board.
MidBite – Response of a narrow-waisted board with the stability of a wider nose and tail.
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.
PH Sintered True – Pellets or course powder is pressed until it forms a solid. There are several suppliers for our entire industry and they each have different codes for them, depending on the color and transparency. These codes can make it seem like you’re getting many different kinds and grades of sintered but they’re all pretty much the same as far as you and I will ever tell. True Sintered is harder and more expensive than extruded and it can be faster for those that ride aggressively fast. But to do that, it needs to be waxed and prepared for local conditions.
