Product Info

The Yes Optimistic Snowboard was made for banked slalom junkies, and speed demons alike. Yes recommends running this board slightly shorter due to a short tail and wide waist that give you lighter swing weight and tight turning radius. Modern camber profile for longitudinal power and stability on the deep carves will bring you right back to the old school carving days while carbon wrapped bamboo layups and revolutionary UnderBite will distribute power for maximum edge control. Contrary to the name, their is no need to be optimistic, this beast will get the job done.

Product Details

Rocker Type

4mm Modern CamberHigh speeds and extreme pop. Contact points at the tip and tail with raised camber underfoot.

Flex

Flex Rating: 9(1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Shape

UnderBiteUnderBite 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.

Shortened TailThis reduces swing weight on the board and removes unnecessary material.

Core

Carbon PowerDrive 2.0Evolving over the years, the PowerDrive core is always about maximizing the power and energy of any given shape. The Optimistic begins with the same light, snappy Poplar and Bamboo core featured on the Standard and Ghost. We then mill two custom programmed channels about 30mm in from the edge, running parallel to and matching the sidecut dimensions. Inserted into these channels 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.

Laminates

Triax + CarbonRobust torsional flex

Base

Sintered TruePellets or course powder is pressed until it forms a solid. There are several suppliers for our entire industry and they each have different codes for them, depending on the color and transparency. These codes can make it seem like you’re getting many different kinds and grades of sintered but they’re all pretty much the same as far as you and I will ever tell. True Sintered is harder and more expensive than extruded and it can be faster for those that ride aggressively fast. But to do that, it needs to be waxed and prepared for local conditions.
