They killed the last Unicorn.
JP Solberg was devastated to learn that the last white rhinoceros had been killed and that now that race was extinct. He wanted a strong message to be said about the extinction of species, and chose the 420 as the canvas for his protest. The board is based on the Pro20 chassis which found so many converts last year. The more aggressive flex pattern and snap from the Poplar + Paulwnia core, coupled with a high-speed sintered true base and 4mm of camber underfoot brought the shape from a pow-specific quiver board to an immensely fun do-it-all mountain board.

Artist: Richard Bentley @itsabentley2020 he has been part of Norwegian sideways
subculture since he was very young. « Art has always been a dear friend of mine and over the years became my lifestyle. From working in the industry, to being a tattooist for decades to finally returning to a full time artist
Poplar/Paulownia/Bamboo Core: Creates 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 then inserts two bamboo stringers down the full length for added pop and response.
Sintered True Base: Just like it says. Pellets or course powder are pressed until they
form a solid. There are several suppliers for our entire industry and each have different codes for them depending on the colour 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 often and prepared for local conditions.
16mm Taper: A slight taper (18mm on 152) helps keep the nose up without losing the tail’s ability to hold in hard-pack. Stance is only slightly set back from center of effective edge because the difference in nose and tail shovel keeps you from going over the nose.
Forever Flex: Forever Flex is a new manufacturing process that helps stabilize the flex and rocker profile of a board for it’s lifetime. Our boards now finish the first stages of production slightly overbuilt and then we “break them in” using specialized machinery that mimics extreme riding use. By flexing the fresh board fibers and epoxy at the factory the materials settle in to their final arrangement within the board layup much the same as if you rode the board for 20 days. This process helps us narrow our production tolerances so the board you buy has a more accurate specified flex and rocker profile that will change less.
Triax Fiberglass: Multi-axis, stitched fiberglass laminate that offers a precise and responsive ride in any terrain or snow conditions.
Camber underfoot with a bit of rocker lift in the nose gives you the ultimate best of both worlds for a pow ready board that holds up in any condition. This board bend has entry rocker that adds lift to the nose while a camber section under both feet maintains momentum and stability through deep-driving turns and variable conditions. This bend caters to those who like the attributes of traditional camber but want something that will get up to speed and float easier in pow.
Directional tapered boards excel in a pure mountain environment. The tail sinks in pow for better float and quicker turns.
A directional shape with a longer, softer nose and a shorter, stiffer tail get taken to the next level with a tapering design—which sees a wider nose tapering into a narrower tail. The advantages are two-fold: this shape not only sees mega-enhanced floatation with a surfy feel in deep powder, it also creates a faster turning snowboard which is noticeably more nimble and great for tree riding.
