The 20/20 kinda freaked people out last year. By pushing our own creative envelope and disrupting the limits of what a modern snowboard factory could mass-produce, we set an industry milestone that we’re very proud of.
Deep pronounced concaves at either end of this short, true-twin outline cause the board’s planing angle in powder to mimic a traditional directional board, even with your weight centered. The forward (or leading) concave draws air under the hull causing lift. That same shape on the trailing end is an exaggerated rocker line that speeds the release of snow causing the tail to drop. Land switch and the same thing happens.
And with its wide waist width and tight sidecut, this board rips hardpack and park laps too. There’s no need to compromise anymore with the 20/20 Powderhull.
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.
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.
Just like it says. Pellets or course powder is pressed until it forms a solid. There are several suppliers for our entire industry and they each have different codes for them, depending on the color and transparency. These codes can make it seem like you’re getting many different kinds and grades of sintered but they’re all pretty much the same as far as you and I will ever tell. 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.
