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.
- UnderBite Edges
- Carbon PowerDrive 2.0
- Triax Fiberglass
- Sintered True Base
- Lifetime Warranty
UnderBite Edges - By redistributing rider weight and input, the UnderBite enhances turning ease and edge hold.
Carbon PowerDrive 2.0 - Starting with the Weightless Core Profile, Yes mills two custom programmed channels about 30mm in from the edge , running parallel to the sidecut.
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 Carbon PowerDrive 2.0 is constantly active.
Triax Fiberglass - A well balanced mix of fiber glass for a more torsionally responsive board.
Sintered True Base - 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.
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.
