YES | 420 SNOWBOARD | WOMENS | 2021
One of the original "volume" shapes, the Yes 420 Snowboard's short, wide profile makes threading through tight trees easy. This year, Yes added a touch of camber to the blended rocker profile, giving you some extra grip when needed without compromising your ability to surf, splash, and pop off of every ripple in the pow-forest.
Rocker Type - Blended Rocker
Flex Rating - 5 (1 soft, 10 stiff)
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 maneuverability 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 center of effective edge because the difference in nose and tail shovel keeps you from going over the nose.
Designed specifically for the 420 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.
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.
