Details

For this year we switched out the core and added a structural veneer top sheet. The Weightless core and natural dampening and snap provided by the ash veneer brings a refined, high-performance feel to this truly innovative shape. Tapered UnderBite delivers the directional drive and float of a tapered board without compromising edge hold or the ability to power out of turns. The PYL does all this in a more traditional width/length board.

 

FLEX RATING: 4.5 / 5

RIDERS: DCP, Benji Ritchie

SHAPE: Directional

 

OUTLINE: Tapered Underbite

Similar looking to “wings” or bumps on a surfboard, it functions a little different on snow. Each side the board’s effective edge is segmented into 3 distinct parts. Beginning at the nose, the sidecut is approx. 8 meters radius. At the front binding area, the edge steps inward by 2mm, the sidecut changes to approx. 7 meters and continues with that radius until the rear insert pack. Then, the edge steps in again 2mm and the sidecut tightens to approx. 6 meters. Traditional “tapered boards” take the full sidecut and pull the tail inward, which is away from the arc of your turn – this is why they tend to wash out under hard carving. The Tapered UnderBite corrects this by: 1) keeping the sidecut parallel to its corresponding one on the other side of the board. 2) Increasing the sidecut depth as you move towards the tail creating a corrective “hook” to the taper. The board blends into turns effortlessly, has the directional drive and float you’d expect from a tapered board, but it holds an edge and rockets out of turns like nothing else.

 

BASE PROFILE: Directional Camrock 4-4-2

 

CORE: Weightless

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.

Traditional Sizing Guidelines

Used on the PYL, Basic, and Greats Uninc.

When looking at any of these models you can use the trusty standard of; if the board sits between your chin and your nose, then it’s a good length for you. That’s with you and the board standing up lengthwise – understand? Don’t have the board in front of you? - Then measure that zone. Don’t have a metric tape? - Then convert the inches to cm’s via any number of means readily available on your phone.

We at YES. encourage you to have fun when you snowboard. We want you to feel joy. Aren’t we awesome?
