Yes. 420 Snowboard 2024
Often copied, never duplicated.
The board that changed the way we look at snowboards. Length is no longer the only way to stay above powder. This board is all about surface area displacement to create float and stability in a package that has much less swing-weight due to its dramatically shortened length. A tight turning radius facilitates tree-bound powder hunts, and a custom crafted rocker line keeps the nose up at any speed. Often copied, but never duplicated, there’s only one 420.
Blended Rocker + Camber
Flex Rating – 7/10 (1=Soft, 10=Stiff)
Radial Tapered – Inspired by Steve Lis and 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, Yes. is able to get the stability and float normally associated with much longer boards by punching out the waist width and drastically chopping the length. For example, the 148 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 losing 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.
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.
Sintered True – True Sintered bases are harder and more expensive than extruded, and can be faster for those that ride aggressively
