Review

The YES 420 is a freeride powder snowboard that’s built by YES for riders who want a board that floats effortlessly and offers maximum mobility in even the deepest powder. Inspired by the design of surfboards, this pint-sized board focusses on displacement through a wider shape instead of a longer length. It surprisingly has the same surface area as a 160 cm board. This design will give you supreme floatation on powder combined with the more agile feel of a smaller board. Which is really nice when you’re making quick turns or carving between tight trees. New for this season is its lightweight and smooth flexing poplar core, which allows it to stay responsive even when you’re riding fast. With the YES 420 you will think different about those pow days and stay on top of the snow every time, everywhere.
