Built for all skill levels, the Standard is a directional twin ready to take on the whole mountain, in all conditions. When you have a twin shape with a directional camber/rocker flex, you end up with a board easy to maneuver nimbly through the trees, ready to tackle the park and able to stay afloat in the deep.
- MidBite Edges
- Directional Volume Twin
- Poplar + Paulownia + Bamboo Core
- Triax Fiberglass
- Sintered True Base
- Lifetime Warranty
- Slamback Stance
MidBite Edges - Blends the response of a narrow waist width, with the stability of a wider nose and tail, and increases edge hold in the process.
Directional Volume Twin - As the lines between free-ride and freestyle continue to erase, YES wanted to address the needs of folks committed to riding only twins but finding themselves in more pow. Nose and tail volume is hard to notice in hard-pack unless you’re nose/tail pressing, but in pow it affects floatation and you can feel it. This led to the simple idea of the Directional Volume Twin. Symmetrical flex, centered stance, identical wide-points of the board (therefore, NOT tapered), identical length shovel lengths but with a slightly lower volume tail.
Poplar + Paulownia + Bamboo Core - Yes took their standard Full Poplar core profile and lightened it up by replacing 30% of the Poplar with Paulownia and then inserting two bamboo stringers down the full length for added pop and response.
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.

One thing that took me awhile to realize is this volume shifted twin profile. After analyzing further, The tail has less of a stright line. which makes it easier for the tail to sinkl into pow...It was effortless.....Riding switch it looked wierd but I have to stay it performed like a true twin. Love it would recommend for anyone Going all over the mountain.
