Check out the Yes Snowboards Edge Hold Tech
Redistributing rider weight and input, the Yes Snowboards UnderBite enhances turning ease
and edge hold.
Pulling short sections of the sidecut inward at the binding area by 2mm disrupts and reduces the surface area of the edge that has contact with 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 happening. This segmentation of the sidecut into 3 key zones focuses your bodyweight onto the areas that initiate, hold and release turns. Yes Underbit is featured in these snowboards;
The Yes MidBite blends the response of a narrow waist width with the stability of a wider nose & tail. The design steps a single, longer section (longer than UnderBite) of each sidecut inward between the insert packs. This single long disruption of the sidecut between the bindings cheats the waist width narrower, providing quicker edge-to-edge response. Meanwhile, from your bindings out to the end of the sidecut we maintain a wider board width that improves float in pow and is a stable platform for popping, spinning, and landing on any snow type.

Tapered Underbite edge hold from Yes Snowboards drives, floats and holds. Similar looking to “wings” or bumps on a surfboard, it functions a little differently on snow. The board’s effective edge is segmented into 3 distinct parts that step horizontally inward rather than tapering. Traditional “tapered boards” take the full sidecut and pull the tail inward, which is away from the arc of your turn – this is why they tend to wash out under hard carving. The Tapered UnderBite corrects this by:
1. keeping the sidecut parallel to its corresponding one on the other side of the board
2. Increasing the sidecut depth as you move towards the tail creating a corrective “hook” to the taper. The board blends into turns effortlessly, has the directional drive and float you’d expect from a tapered board, but holds an edge and rockets out of turns like nothing else.

Between 90-96% of fresh snow is air. Not water. (National Snow and Ice Data Center, 2019)
The PowderHull Tech moves beyond the influences of surfing and is a response to the understanding that at least 90% of powder is air, and that it’s the study of how air moves and reacts under your board that will lead to design innovation. The deep concaves that characterize this unique design serve 2 functions, depending on if the concave is receiving, or releasing air, not water. The leading concave receives air and compresses it with the venturi shape, forcing positive air-pressure that push upwards, lifting
the nose. At the tail end, where the air is being expanded and released, a negative air-pressure is created pulling the tail of the board downward. What F1 cars call downforce. It is this combined effect that generates the ideal planing angle of the board and is responsible for the 20/20’s magical float that no other “twin” board has. Featured in these snowboards;

True Freestyle Evolved
There is always a creative way down when you open your mind to the possibilities. Parks are inviting, thrilling or terrifying, depending on your ability in relation to the features laid out in front of you. But no matter how big the gap is between your skills and the size of the booters, there is always
a creative way down when you open your mind to the possibilities. We have designed our park boards with this approach in mind. Within
the constraints of the classic twin tip shape we have adapted wider platforms that bring stability and confidence, while countering with highly responsive MidBite outlines. Freestyle snowboards here!

Where the experiments for tomorrow are being made today.
There was a time when all we had was hiking and powder and we were just frothing to get onto the ski-resorts. Kind of how that girl at school that won’t even look at you is the one you can’t stop thinking of, was how we wanted chairlifts, groomed runs and endless vertical. But the only looks we received back then were those of contempt. Resorts made modern snowboarding what it is today and are where the experiments for tomorrow are being conducted. And this goes for both the shitty local hills and the epic, destination resorts. It seems that shitty ones often have the most passionate riders that tap deep into their creative genes to dig up fun where us jaded Whistler snobs see none. The epic ones, of course, provide the larger format to push it to the next level. They have tree-stashes, sidecountry access, and every type of side hit you can conceive. It’s so hard to even define what a resort board is, because it really does have to do everything, on anything, everywhere.

Influences shift as experience grows and time ticks by.
We’ve all been influenced by surfing, in fact the earliest days of modern snowboarding was a direct interpretation of “surfing on snow”, both in the design of the boards and the act of riding down the hill. Skateboarding has of course been the heaviest influence on freestyle, but surfing still maintains a religious-like aura within our community. It influences our design culture so much that some snowboard designers have stolen the verb “shaping” without ever picking up a planer. The 420 was a direct translation of the Steve Lis fish, which was a stand-up version of the knee-board, and the Tapered UnderBite on the PYL got its inspiration from bumped outlines (wings) on the tail area of some surfboard shapes. These translations have served us well. The 420 taught us that the same width that gave us greater float in powder gave us the freedom and leverage to lean over further and apply greater force on our edges in hard snow. It also quickly made the average boot size look downright silly on the average board width. Here are the freestyle snowboards;
