Snowboard

Yes. Optimistic Snowboard 2024

Face every day like it's a pow day on the Yes. Optimistic Snowboard. This mood enhancer brings response, stability, and edge hold in every snow condition, with ridiculous float in those really deep conditions. The unmistakable shape is actually close to a mid-wide, meaning you can run it a bit shorter than you would a normal board and still enjoy mega buoyancy and quick spins. The sidecut is tight, too, so you're able to deal with the width more easily too. This is a fantastic board, all around!

Product Details

Rocker Type

CamRockThe response of camber with the floatability of rocker. Camber between your feet acts as a spring, keeping your contact points on the ground as you go in and out of turns and allowing you to keep that edge hold longer. Once compressed the camber will accentuate the rocker and lift the nose out more, allowing it to float.

Flex

Flex Rating8 (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 segmentation of the sidecut into 3 key zones focuses your body weight onto areas that initiate, hold and release turns.

Core

Weightless CoreThe Weightless Core strikes a critical balance between light weight and strength. Using a lower density species of Poplar in areas that are not as structured and Paulownia in the areas that are, Yes. was able to shave precious weight. This helps the board not only float, but "feel" floaty.

Laminates

Biaxial Glass

Base

Sintered SpecThe raw material is pre-consumer recycled (meaning it never left the factory) sintered base material. The heating and extrusion process softens it slightly, but it's still much harder than true Extruded.

Flex

Flex Rating7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Baseplate

Flushcup TechnologyDesigned to hold boots even without a highback, these have a flush inner surface where the highback meets the heelcup. This gives direct energy transfer between boot and binding.

Hanger 3.0 Nylon Reinforced with 30% Glass FiberThe new Hanger H3 features a wider bushing footprint that is closer to the board’s edges for enhanced board connection and faster energy transfer. The H3 also encompasses a reduction in weight, a dropped-down inner lateral wall for better ankle mobility, and is able to accommodate bigger volume boots. To top it off, it also has a new kingpin tool-less 2.0 that is more integrated and user friendly.

Kingpin Tool-less 2.0No tool required - switching from your park to pow board with one set of bindings or changing your bushings on the fly has never been faster or easier.

Highback

Straps

3D Contour Toe StrapIf you just can’t get enough grip, then the 3D Contour Toe Strap is what will make the cut. This strap is not only super grippy but also moldable, and can be used on either the tip or top of your boot.

Asym FRS StrapThis new Asym FRS strap features a “power spine” which adds a layer of support and comfort, and is perfect for navigating steep-and-uneven terrain or laying down some hearty power carves. This strap molds perfectly to any type of boot and offers just the right amount of flex. Take advantage of its Flip-it functionality for either freeride or freestyle mode—you choose!

Ankle Hinge ConnectorA minimalist but strong hinge design allows your straps to move out of the way, with a stop mechanism to prevent them flopping around.

NOW Tool-less Adjuster Straps

Buckles

PA66-GF Buckle LeversMade with the same high grade nylon and glass fiber blend found in posts and discs. This material is light and strong.

Additional Features

Skate TechInspired by how easily and efficiently a skateboard turns, Skate Tech mimics the function of skateboard trucks. Traditional bindings diminish energy transfer by flexing and bending the baseplate, forcing you to crank straps down harder, ride with more forward lean, or run taller and stiffer highbacks. Skate Tech bindings bypass the middle of the snowboard and direct your energy right onto the board's edges, transfering more power to the board with less work.
