Details

Lift created by the PowderHull shape and a symmetrical truetwin design puts the 20/20 ina uniquely versatile grey area.The 150 will float better than any158 you’ve ever ridden, but spin and maneuver more like a 152. Likewise the 154 may have similar surface area calculations to that of a traditional 160, but it floats like a 65 and spins like a 56.

 

FLEX RATING: 4/5

RIDERS: Early Adopters, Futurists

SHAPE: True Twin

 

OUTLINE: 3D Powder Hull

The 3D Powder Hull starts with a base profile that combines 2 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 we use on many of our other boards. The resultant 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 longboards in the surf – causing lift and floatation. As the snow moves across the base it releases off the tail and the exaggerated rocker line along the center, causes the tail to drop downward.

So even though it’s a perfectly balanced twin, the board rides through deep snow with the same pitch, or planing angle, that we get with directional shapes and set-back stances.

On hard-pack it’s just a short, wide, super fun twin.

 

BASE PROFILE: Powder Hull

 

CORE: Weightless Core

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.

 

GLASS: Triax

 

BASE MATERIAL: Sintered True

SIN·TER VERB \ˈSIN-TƏR\ transitive verb: to cause to become a coherent mass by heating without melting

Pellets or course powder is pressed until it forms a solid. True Sintered is harder and more expensive than extruded and it can be faster for those that ride aggressively fast. But to do that, it needs to be waxed and prepared for local conditions. Our “Sintered PH Spec” material is specifically chosen for unique flex qualities necessary for the PowderHull’s complex 3D surfacing.

 

DESIGNED IN CANADA: Design and prototype testing takes place in British Columbia Canada. The snowboards are manufactured globally with sustainability in mind.

Non Traditional Sizing Guidelines

Used on the Optimistic, 420, 420 PH, and the 20/20

These boards defy any notion of traditional length and width. After we designed the 420, we proved that width does provide much of the stability we have always associated with length. Also, that with careful study and development of our sidecuts, we can create a board that is highly responsive and holds an edge better than the traditionalists would have you believe. This realization has influenced several designs that followed

 

20/20:

Hard to say much about the 20/20 that hasn’t already been written. While its width is greater than a traditional board, it’s still not as wide as the 420. Additionally, the lift created by the PowderHull and it’s true twin, symmetrical design puts it in a uniquely versatile grey area. The 150 will float better than any 158 you’ve ever ridden, but spin and maneuver more like a 152. Likewise the 154 may have similar surface area calculations to that of a traditional 160+, but it floats like a 165 and spins like a 156. And if that just made your head spin, maybe just go with this: Under 175lbs / 80kg – go with the 150. Over 175lbs / 80kg – go with the 154.
