Riding the Yes 420 Powderhull Snowboard combines the float-ability of the 420 with a refined waist for a more responsive ride, plus a longer effective edge that holds better on hardpack. But make no mistake, the PowderHull is a powder hound on fluffy ground. PH won't let your nose dip under the snow, so you can go and go and go.
PowderHull + 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 Rating: 8 – (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)
Directional Weird/ 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.
