Quick overview

The Yes Optimistic with a mid-wide waist width coupled with an aggressive sidecut and UnderBite sets you up for a turning experience like no other. Response, stability and edge hold on every snow condition. Floats better than anything this side of a 420. Enjoy the shorter swing weight by riding it a few cm’s shorter than your normal board and you will unlock this board’s true versatility.

Details

PROFILE

  • Camber
    Offering a snappy suspension, camber distributes weight evenly over the entire length of the board for smooth, continuous edge control from tip to tail. The P’s! Power, Pop. Precision, Predictability! An advocate of powerful turns and poppy precision, camber speaks to the core values of board design.


CORE

  • Carbon Powerdrive 2.0
    Carbon PowerDrive performance is achieved by the strength and snap inherent in monocoque structures. Starting with the Poplar/ Paulownia/Bamboo core, Yes then mills two custom programmed channels about 30mm in from the edge, running parallel to the sidecut. Inserted into this channel 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.


REINFORCEMENTS

  • Triax
    A snowboard often has two layers of fiberglass. A bottom and top layer. Both layers in this board are made of 3-dimensional fiberglass at a 45-degree angle. 3-dimensional fiberglass provides good torsional rigidity. This provides stability and response and is often used in boards for the more experienced rider.

  • Carbon
    Carbon beams are placed in strategic positions to increase pop and snap without adding overall weight compared to traditional fiberglass only constructions. Carbon also adds flex memory, supporting the camber shape so the board remains lively over time and use.


BASE

  • Sintered Spec base
    A recycled sintered base made by extrusion. The properties are close to those of sintered bases, but due to heating and pressing, the base has become softer. This base lies between Extruded and Sintered. Harder and faster when properly waxed.


SIDEWALL & EDGES

  • Underbite Edges
    Underbite aims to increase edge grip and ease of turning. The steel edges are slightly pulled inward at the height of the inserts. The result is an increased grip so that you can put more force on your steel edges. This makes your turns a lot easier.


OTHERS

  • Forever Flex
    Forever Flex is the 'breaking' of the board. By bending the board before use, it is as if you have already ridden the board for a number of days. As a result, the flex of the board in your hands will remain stable and will change less with use.
