Bringing the power and versatility of YES's Optimistic to those with more modest budgets - The Y keeps all benefits of the shape intact, offering a wide platform, UnderBite edges and directional nose and tail volumes with a less aggressive flex and little more rocker added to the outer ends of the contact surface. All these specs at this price gets you wondering... Y Not?
- Directional CamRock
- UnderBite Edges
- Full Poplar Core
- Biax Fiberglass
- Sintered Spec Base
- Lifetime Warranty
Directional CamRock - A profile that sets you up for a powder party in the front thanks to a floaty rocker section, powerful control underfoot with positive camber between inserts and rocker in the back for a catch-free ride.
UnderBite Edges - By redistributing rider weight and input, the UnderBite enhances turning ease and edge hold.
Full Poplar Core - This is the baseline wood core that strikes a predictable balance between durability, consistent flex and a lightweight feel.
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.
