The narrower outline of the 420 with PH allows such extreme versatility - a wide range of riders can be comfortable onthis one length. Refined waist width andsidecut make it more responsive that the 420, while longer effective edge gets a little more bite into the hardpack and the Powderhull makes it near impossible tosink the nose.
FLEX RATING: 4/5
RIDERS: Anyone with an open mind and a desire to fly.
SHAPE: Directional Weird
OUTLINE: Radial Tapered + 3d Powder Hull
A slight taper (12mm) helps keep the nose up without loosing 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.
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.
BASE PROFILE/ CAMBER: Directional PowderHull / Powrock
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.
BASE MATERIAL: Sintered True
SIN·TER VERB \ˈSIN-TƏR\ transitive verb: to cause to become a coherent mass by heating without melting
This is the term we use, and is the grey zone many companies play in. We call it Sintered Spec because both its hardness and chemical properties, and its on-snow performance , are very close to true sintered - but it is formed using the extrusion process. How? – The raw material is actually pre-consumer recycled (meaning it never left the factory) sintered base material. So while the heating and extrusion process has softened it slightly, it’s still much harder than true Extruded.
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
Right now we only make one length of the 420 PH, but as in the case of the 20/20, the PowderHull base design allows such extreme versatility, a wide range of riders can be comfortable on this one length. It’s narrower waist width and refined sidecut make it more responsive that the 420, it’s longer effective edge gets a little more bite into the hardpack and the Powderhull makes it near impossible to sink the nose. If your weight range falls between 150 to 200lbs / 68 to 91kg , the 154, 420PH is perfectly suited for you. If you’re over 200lbs / 91kgyou will still have a blast on this board and will be shocked at how well it keeps you on top of the deep stuff.
The classic. Nothing is quite like the crispness, power and precision of camber at higher speeds. Ideal for aggressive riders and traditionalists.
The all-round performer. Far and away, this is our best-selling platform. Ultimate versatility comes from blending both rocker and camber traits to get a balance that offers both the stability of camber and the easy ride of rocker. Some boards in this category fall closer to a camber feel, while others ride a little looser like a rocker board. Find your balance and get a board here that does it all.
Flat from contact point to contact point for control and stability with a catch-free feel
Like waking up at noon on summer holiday. Rocker boards feature a reverse camber lay-up that is less-catchy, turns easier and sends the fun factor/high-five frequency into the stratosphere. These boards generally offer a more forgiving ride which is ideal for newer/casual riders, jibbing and easy style pow hounds alike.
Do it ALL. Wanna grab some pow turns up top, scream down a mid-mountain groomer and then hit the park at the bottom? THESE are your boards. Our best-selling configuration. Generally an all-mountain twin-tip, directional twin or minimal directional shape that’s poised to do it all.
Tech freestyle supremacy. These twin tip boards generally feature a slightly softer flex and shorter contact points which make for boards that are slightly more maneuverable but still have the landing gear you need to grease park laps day-in and day-out. If park laps and hit runs are your jam, then this is where you live. If that last sentence didn’t make sense, it’s best not to look here.
Parks are where I walk my dog, the mountain is where I snowboard. Pow/Freeride boards quite often offer a distinct directional shape, featuring a tapering shape designed to provide the smoothest ride out on the mountain—whether it’s first chair on a pow day or late afternoon when it’s all bombed out. With options that range from resort freeride, slackcountry through to backcountry, the pow/freeride category is your go-to for riders not looking to ride the park and capitalize on the rest of the mountain.
Narrower widths mean lightning fast edge transfers and less fatigue for riders that have smaller feet. Suggested for all women’s sizes and Men’s 8.5 and below. Look for waist widths that are below 25cms.
Regular widths offer only critical measurements that will kill toe-heel drag, but also maintain proper response to keep turns quick and agile while not tiring you out. Ideal for rider with US Men’s 9-11.5 feet. Look for board widths that are 25-25.5 cm wide, going wider as foot sizes get bigger.
Anyone with a size 12+ boot can tell you—toe/heel drag sucks. Kill the culprit with a wider waist board and get the freedom to turn as hard as you want. Riders with 12+ boot sizes will want to look at boards with waist width of an absolute minimum of 25.6cm and go up from there—going wider as foot sizes get bigger.
