Why we chose the Yes 20/20 Snowboard: A see-through, true twin, powder specific board which smashes the pistes and can even take a run in the park? Hell yeah!
Many men will be thrilled to read that good things sometimes do come in small packages. Case in point being the YES 20/20. Three years since it was first released, Romain, DCP and JP have redesigned that most elusive of things – a true twin powder snowboard. Welcome to the new age of backcountry freestyle.
If you think you’ve seen this design before, you have. Google: “Back to the Future Hoverboard”. The new Powder Hull 2.0 has made some significant advances from its origins. The concave sections in the nose and tail work around the same principle of pushing the nose of the board up and creating pockets of air to help with float, but you only have to glance at it to see what’s new.

Inspired by George Greenough’s Velo kneeboard designs of the 1960s, the 20/20 has adopted CoreLess Tech to create the same contours in the base’s profile but done away with almost all of the materials. The result is a translucent, space-age looking construction with a nearly nonexistent swing weight.
First order of business will be flipping the bird to all your mates from behind the snowboard’s veil. Once that novelty passes, get yourself into the deepest snow to experience the real magic. The 20/20 “wallops” and “whomps” its way over pillows and powder pockets. The harder you push it down, the more it wafts you back up to the surface.
