Cramming a gigantic surface area into a pint sized board, the Yes. 420 Snowboard offers effortless float and maximum mobility in the deepest powder. Shattering misconceptions about riding powder on a radically shorter board, the 148 centimeter 420 has about the same surface area as a typical 160 centimeter board. The result is amazing powder flotation with the super agile feel of a much smaller board when you're carving between tight trees and cranking spins off cliff drop and natural hits. Stuffing incredible float into a small package, the 420's stubby short shape measures a whopping 286 millimeters at the waist. This incredible width lends extra surface area to the board, giving you the float of a much larger deck without the unwieldy turning radius or extra swing weight. Next, you'll notice the board's spoon like nose rises early, keeping you floating over bottomless pow, not helplessly submerged beneath it. The last feature that radically enhances float is the 420's tapered shape 16 18 millimeters, depending on size with a slightly set back stance. This slight set back and moderate dose of taper work in conjunction with the large, early rise nose, keeping you floating across the deepest powder stashes without having to lean in the backseat just to stay upright. New for this year, the 420 features a Weightless core made of smooth flexing poplar and super light paulownia. Triax fiberglass keeps the board torsionally responsive at high speeds. And because it's designed as a single minded powder board, the 420 features a Sintered Spec base that glides across the deepest snow to prevent you from bogging down, especially across flat sections at the bottom of the mountain.
