YES Optimistic Snowboard 2023
Rail it. Float it. Send it. The YES Optimistic is here with an aggressive sidecut and UnderBite edges for a grippy, all-terrain shred machine. This board has what expert riders ask for with a wide waist for added stability. We recommend buying your board a few centimeters shorter than your usual freeride snowboard so you'll have less swing-weight, and more versatility with this long nose, stubby tail, versatile setup.

- Weightless Core
- Biax Fiberglass
- Sintered Spec Base
- Lifetime Warranty
CamRock - A decent amount of rocker in the tip and tail of the board for smooth transitions, and, camber between your feet for pop.
UnderBite Edges - By redistributing rider weight and input, the UnderBite enhances turning ease and edge hold.
Weightless Core - The weightless core strikes a critical balance between lightweight and strength. By using a lower density species of poplar in areas that are not as structural, and Paulownia in the areas that are, YES is able to shave weight off their boards giving you a better, lighter ride.
Biax Fiberglass - A balanced mix of fiber glass for neutral, torsional flex properties.
Sintered Spec Base - Somewhere between extruded and sintered, this base material is made from recycled sintered base materials from the factory floor. This makes for a fast base requiring less maintenance than a sintered base. Basically; a win-win scenario.
Lifetime Warranty - Covered under manufacturer warranty for lifetime of the product with the original owner. Warranty only includes structural defects and DOES NOT cover impact damage, abuse, misuse or normal wear and tear expected from aggressive riding.
Sorry folks, but bashing your board on a rock or rail does not qualify as a "manufacturer's defect" and will not be honored.
