To the ladies who have no fear, to the women who charge harder than their men, to all those looking for style and performance blended in a great board, this is the Hel Yes. It is also the weapon of choice of the pro rider Helen Schettini by the way.
What can the Yes Hel snowboard do?
Watch your eyes and watch your legs, this is the Hel, a pro model that’s not designed for goofing around. It’s a high performance women-specific snowboard suited for riding hard and fast on the entire mountain. It comes with a pretty firm flex (⅘ on Yes scale) and with a bamboo/poplar core which means the board is responsive, grippy and super lively. Riders who like to carve long arcs will find in the Hel one of the best edge control ever and powerful energy returns. It’s also and mainly a powder board and the deeper, the better. The board floats like a dream and sneaks through obstacles with ease. It delivers support for slashing powdery ridges or for landing big jumps on a stable platform. In other words, the Hel is a high-end freeride all-mountain board that rips. That’s about it.
Who is the Yes Hel snowboard designed for?
The board is for advanced or expert women riders looking for a performance-driven snowboard. From carving groomers to surfing powder, the Hel delivers stability, support and personality. It is a demanding board though and requires technique to be managed, we remind you that it’s a pro model!

Weaved biaxial fiberglass are positioned at 0°/90° for more torsional flex. Great performance at carving or park.
Creating a lighter, more responsive core than the Full Poplar. The Poplar + Bamboo uses the same durable core, lightens it up by replacing 30% of the poplar with paulownia and the inserts two bamboo stringers down the full length for added pop and response.
Classic shape for a versatile use. The nose is slightly longer than the tail.
Withe success of last years Overbite Edges on the Hel we wanted to see what would happen when we take our own design theories and turn them inside out. The result was a small revolution in board shaping. By stepping in under the bindings it reduces (or disrupts) the surface area of the edge that has contact with snow (while the board is on edge) which in turn increases the edge pressure in the areas where you need it - from binding out, and through the center of the board where the carving arc is taking place.
The Hel is designed to be ridden more aggressively and benefits from the traction associated with bump-outs. The Basic and Emoticon benefit from more subtle re-distribution of your body weight onto areas that help you turn.
The CamRock will give you everything you need for your backcountry line. There is more rocker in the nose to add float and improved maneuverability, matched with a smaller amount of camber under foot to keep your snowboard responsive. A small amount of rocker in the tail will give you stability and maneuverability.
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 differentcodes for them, depending on the colour and transparency. These codes can make it seem like you're getting many differents 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.
