Product Info

Oscar Wilde once said that the basis of optimism is sheer terror -- that's probably where the Yes. Optimistic Snowboard takes its cues. Scary fast and seriously powerful, this board features a directional shape with a wide nose that's perfect for piste, pow and mashed potatoes. The unique UnderBite edges are ideal for locking in turns and respond quickly to the smallest amount of pressure. Stay fast, stay wild and get the Yes. Optimistic Snowboard! Ride it a few centimeters shorter than your normal board for maximum carnage.

Product Details

Rocker Type

4mm Modern CamberHigh speeds and extreme pop. Contact points at the tip and tail with raised camber underfoot.

Flex

9 – (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Shape

UnderBiteUnderBite 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 segmentation of the sidecut into 3 key zones focuses your body weight onto areas that initiate, hold and release turns.

Shortened TailThis reduces swing weight on the board and removes unnecessary material.

Core

Carbon PowerDrive 2.0Starting with the Poplar/Paulownia/Bamboo core, Yes. mills two custom programmed channels about 30mm in from the edge, running parallel to and matching the sidecut dimensions. Inserted into these channels are pre-bent bamboo stringers wrapped in carbon. The end result is a highly responsive core that precisely matches and compliments the outline of each board. From intuitive turn initiation, solid edge hold and explosive release, the PowerDrive core is constantly active.

Laminates

Triax + CarbonRobust torsional flex.

Base

Sintered TrueTrue Sintered bases are harder and more expensive than extruded, and can be faster for those that ride aggressively.

Binding Compatibility

2 x 4 Insert Pack
