YES Snowboards 2009-2010

07 May, 2009


When one door closes, another opens. It’s no surprise that this is the case for YES snowboards, after Jp Solberg, Romain De Marchi and DCP were dropped from Burton they came together to create their own brand with a different message. With the boards manufactured at Nidecker, they are already on their way to having built solid snowboards and seeing where it goes.

Here’s a glimpse at the boards from YES for 09-10 with limited quantities and stayed tuned for the review of the YES. 156.5 Asymmetric Rocker Twin-Tip / Ultimate Grip that I was able to ride.

    maybe its just because I really dig Neversummer boards but whats the use of cambering a board totally the opposite way than NS does…???????

    Hey Johnny, most companies are taking the reverse camber into their own hands and seeing how it does. NS’s way isn’t the set in stone way to do it. Atomic did a similiar design to YES, but there’s was camber then flat under the bindings and YES does camber then rockered to the tip and tail, so companies are really testing it and seeing if it works…by multiple designs before it even gets to the public. YES’s version and how it rode I just put up the review for, since I’ve ridden the atomic’s prototype…this had a similiar feel but not your typical rocker board at all.

    Hey, for anonymus looking for a wide… The boards, especially the 158 and 162 are wider than than your normal 58 and 62. The 58 will most likely fit at least a size 11 and the 62 should fit almost everything else. Remember that one of the main goals of boot manufacturers is to create a lower profile boot. This helps to eliminate the need for wide boards. In many cases like 32, Salomon, Burton and Northwave, a size 11 boot from this season is most likely the length of a size 9 or 10 five years ago. Unless 3 feet of fresh is all you ride everyday, downsizing the size of your boot and the width of your board will help increase the response of your board. Making it easier and quicker to set the edge and control the boards on tight, quick turns. I all I know is that no matter what size boot you have, you will love these boards. They have very similar edging characteristics to standard camber. As always though, toe drag is never good, so it is still a good idea to check your boot on the board.
