HEL YES.

Always best in class.

After winning three consecutive Good Wood Award’s, the HEL YES. has anchored itself as one of the industry’s top standards for women’s freeriding. A directional twin layout, UnderBite outline, sintered base and a bamboo-stringer core has allowed Helen to draw her unique mark on women’s snowboarding.

Underbite

Outline

Underbite

UnderBite edges re-distribute a rider’s weight in such a way that it enhances turning ease and edge hold. Creating divots inward at the binding area reduces and disrupts the surface area of the edge that has contact with the snow while the board is turning. This increases the edge pressure by distributing your weight/energy in the areas where you need it - from the binding out, and through the center of the board where the carving arc is taking place. This segmentation of the sidecut into 3 key zones focuses your body weight onto areas that initiate, hold and release turns.

Poplar/Paulownia/Bamboo

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.
