The Basic – in one form or another - has been with us since YES. began. It launched the brand, it launched a small movement, and when we applied Underbite a few years ago it unwittingly put modern form to a philosophy that has been with us all since the beginning. It’s both as complicated and as simple as it needs to be. The Basic is for the snowboarder’s snowboarder. Its primary function is to allow the rider to do anything he or she focuses their mind on. Whatever line, trick, direction or surface they want to shred, the Basic is designed to make this as intuitive as possible. Waist width, sidecut, Underbite, flex pattern, tip and tail profiles, materials – all of it is thoughtfully applied with that same goal in mind. To open the hill up to whatever it is you want to make of it. This basic goal is what we’re all after. So for us, Basic doesn’t mean simple - Basic means fundamental.
FLEX RATING 3.5/5
SHAPE: True Twin
UnderBite edges re-distribute a rider’s weight in such a way that it enhances turning ease and edge hold. Creating divots inward at the binding area reduces and disrupts the surface area of the edge that has contact with the snow while the board is turning. This increases the edge pressure by distributing your weight/energy in the areas where you need it - from the binding out, and through the center of the board where the carving arc is taking place. This segmentation of the sidecut into 3 key zones focuses your body weight onto areas that initiate, hold and release turns.
BASE PROFILE: Camrock 4-4-4
CORE: Full Poplar
Our baseline core for tip to tail wood-core snowboard construction. Strikes a predictable balance between durability, consistent flex and light weight.
BASE MATERIAL: Extruded
EX·TRUDE VERB \IK-ˈSTRÜD\ : to force, press, or push (something) out : to shape (something) by forcing it through a hole
Just like it says. This material is formed by extrusion. It’s softer than our other two bases, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. At the speeds many of us ride, this material is actually quicker (gets up to speed faster) than sintered when waxed correctly. You may have your own proof of this when you’re smoking by someone with a dried out “high-end” base. It also retains wax better because it’s more porous and is easy to fix with a P-Tex stick if you get scratches in it.
DESIGNED IN CANADA: Design and prototype testing takes place in British Columbia Canada. The snowboards are manufactured globally with sustainability in mind.
Traditional Sizing Guidelines
Used on the PYL, Basic, and Greats Uninc.
When looking at any of these models you can use the trusty standard of; if the board sits between your chin and your nose, then it’s a good length for you. That’s with you and the board standing up lengthwise – understand? Don’t have the board in front of you? - Then measure that zone. Don’t have a metric tape? - Then convert the inches to cm’s via any number of means readily available on your phone.
We at YES. encourage you to have fun when you snowboard. We want you to feel joy. Aren’t we awesome?
The classic. Nothing is quite like the crispness, power and precision of camber at higher speeds. Ideal for aggressive riders and traditionalists.
The all-round performer. Far and away, this is our best-selling platform. Ultimate versatility comes from blending both rocker and camber traits to get a balance that offers both the stability of camber and the easy ride of rocker. Some boards in this category fall closer to a camber feel, while others ride a little looser like a rocker board. Find your balance and get a board here that does it all.
Flat from contact point to contact point for control and stability with a catch-free feel
Like waking up at noon on summer holiday. Rocker boards feature a reverse camber lay-up that is less-catchy, turns easier and sends the fun factor/high-five frequency into the stratosphere. These boards generally offer a more forgiving ride which is ideal for newer/casual riders, jibbing and easy style pow hounds alike.
Do it ALL. Wanna grab some pow turns up top, scream down a mid-mountain groomer and then hit the park at the bottom? THESE are your boards. Our best-selling configuration. Generally an all-mountain twin-tip, directional twin or minimal directional shape that’s poised to do it all.
Tech freestyle supremacy. These twin tip boards generally feature a slightly softer flex and shorter contact points which make for boards that are slightly more maneuverable but still have the landing gear you need to grease park laps day-in and day-out. If park laps and hit runs are your jam, then this is where you live. If that last sentence didn’t make sense, it’s best not to look here.
Parks are where I walk my dog, the mountain is where I snowboard. Pow/Freeride boards quite often offer a distinct directional shape, featuring a tapering shape designed to provide the smoothest ride out on the mountain—whether it’s first chair on a pow day or late afternoon when it’s all bombed out. With options that range from resort freeride, slackcountry through to backcountry, the pow/freeride category is your go-to for riders not looking to ride the park and capitalize on the rest of the mountain.
Narrower widths mean lightning fast edge transfers and less fatigue for riders that have smaller feet. Suggested for all women’s sizes and Men’s 8.5 and below. Look for waist widths that are below 25cms.
Regular widths offer only critical measurements that will kill toe-heel drag, but also maintain proper response to keep turns quick and agile while not tiring you out. Ideal for rider with US Men’s 9-11.5 feet. Look for board widths that are 25-25.5 cm wide, going wider as foot sizes get bigger.
Anyone with a size 12+ boot can tell you—toe/heel drag sucks. Kill the culprit with a wider waist board and get the freedom to turn as hard as you want. Riders with 12+ boot sizes will want to look at boards with waist width of an absolute minimum of 25.6cm and go up from there—going wider as foot sizes get bigger.
