The Pick Your Line has been in the YES range for some time now and previously it's just ticked along as YES's big mountain board. But last season that all changed. With a move to an all-new factory, and the PYL being totally redesigned, YES created one of the most advanced freeride boards to ever hit the market.
Aimed at experienced riders who want a board that will perform at the highest level, this big mountain powerhouse has redefined hard charging performance.
Built around a fully directional tapered shape with directional 4/4/2 CamRock profile, the PYL delivers all the freeride characteristics you could ever need, float at the front, stability in the turn and drive and power out the tail. But, it's the state-of-the-art tapered Under-Bite edge profile that really sets this board apart.
For all the benefits the tapered shape gives you, its big flaw is that it eats into the sidecut profile as the board tapers down. This can lead to the tail washing out when you're pushing hard. To compensate for this, YES have developed their Tapered Under-Bite edges. By combining three separate reducing sidecut profiles running from tip to tail and joined together by physical step-down, the PYL delivers a level of response and edge hold that is a revelation.
To back up this great design YES utilise the best materials and most advanced construction available. Heading this up is the Weightless Power Drive core. This combine's durable poplar with paulownia to create a board that is both strong and superlight. Now to add power, YES fit their advanced Carbon Power Drive rails. These pre-bent bamboo stringers are pre wrapped in carbon fibre and inserted into channels running parallel to the edge of the board. These not only gives power through the length but they also add a whole new dimension to both edge hold and pop.
Obviously with this level of performance you really need structural layers that can handle it. To this end the PYL uses a high-quality Tri-Ax glass. This torsionally responsive glass fibre gives the board a rock solid and responsive feel and helps create one of the most stable rides there is.
Finally, the high end sintered base gives a super fast glide in all conditions and finishes off what is one of the most exciting boards in our range.
