The light bulb was pretty cool, but science really hit its pinnacle achievement with the Asymmetrical snowboard shape design. Yes has utilized this asymmetrical miracle with the Yes The Asym Snowboard. The 2013 Greats theme is over and Yes is letting the Transworld Good Wood winning shape speak for itself with a few tweaks in the design and a simple graphic that doesn't distract from the beauty of the board itself. The Asym features a deeper heel edge than the toe, while balancing out the natural inefficiencies of how we turn resulting in a ride that is more balanced than we are. The new Asym is updated with parabolic Beechwood rails on a lightweight poplar core which gives the board incredible response and snap. Balance, control, pop, and edgehold, the Yes The Asym Snowboard is the ride you've been dreaming of.
Camber + Rocker Twin 4 mm rocker in the nose, 4 mm camber between your feet, 4 mm camber in the tail. Slight camber between binding areas with variable degree of rocker outside your stance. Gives response and pop between feet, with a looser feel towards the tips. Increase flotation on twins and initiates your turns.
Asym Twin Back in the day, asymmetrical boards meant you had to choose between a regular or goofy-stance board. Not only was that a nightmare for retailers, it didn't suit anyone with a duck stance. The Asym Twin applies a tighter, deeper heelside radial sidecut compared to the toe. In effect, balancing out the body's natural tendency to over-turn the toe edge. Regular or goofy, it's still a true twin. Just flip it around.
Core 5 Poplar core with pre-bent, parabolic birch rails.
Triax Triax laminate consists of fiberglass that is braided in three directions. Meaning it gives the snowboard an asymmetrical flex with lengthwise stiffness. For you, this delivers a snowboard that has tons of pitch when jumping.
Biax Biax laminate consists of fiberglass that is braided in two directions. The fibers are braided vertically at 90 degrees. This ensures a torsional flex that is more evenly distributed throughout the snowboard. For you, this translates to a snowboard that is easy to handle and jib friendly.
