With the growing popularity of the Optimistic Yes felt it was time to bring the amazing resort versatility of this shape to those with more modest budgets. All the benefits of the shape are intact – wide platform, UnderBite outline and directional nose/tail volumes - with a more cost-effective material assembly. It’s also tuned down from the Optimistic with a less aggressive flex and a little rocker added to outer ends of the contact surface.
- Core: Full Poplar. YES’ baseline core for tip to tail woodcore snowboard construction. Strikes a predictable balance between durability, consistent flex and light weight.
- Base Profile: CamRock
- Glass: Biax
- Outline-Underbite: By redistributing rider weight and input, the UnderBite enhances turning ease and edge hold on every sidecut we apply it to.
- Riders: Resort rats with an edge.
Like the name suggests, hybrid profiles are a mix of camber, flat and rocker. There are heaps of different combinations of this employed by snowboard manufacturers. The rocker in the tip and tail are great for turn initiation and float in powder, whilst the camber underfoot adds stability, pop and increased edge-hold. You get the edge-hold you need from the camber section underfoot and the float in powder from the rocker sections.
A tapered directional shape is like a directional shape, but the width of the nose will be noticeably larger than the width of the tail.
Almost everything about the tail and the nose will be different – flex, side-cut, length and width. The stance will always be setback, and everything is designed to go only in one direction.
