YES introduced the Typo to the market last season and in no time at all it was getting truly stunning reviews, eventually bagging itself a Transworld Good wood award. Aimed at riders of all ability levels who are looking for a board that can ride absolutely anything and everything, this resort buster never feels wanting, no matter where or how you ride it.
Built around YES's innovative directional twin shape with a 5mm set-back, the Typo ticks all the boxes for the all-terrain rider. That extra bit of volume in the nose combined with that setback, gives the perfect amount of lift and takes away the need to shift your bindings towards the tail and ride around on your back foot on those deep powder days.
As with the Basic the Typo utilises YES's acclaimed Under-Bite edges. This unique edge profile places dents along the edges of the board on the both the toe and heelside. These direct the rider's energy from under the feet and out to the front and back contact points and the centre of the sidecut, ensuring that the Typo delivers a level of edge hold and control that defies all expectations of a board at this price.
Now add to this the innovative 4/4/4 CamRock profile which combines rocker in the nose and tail with a traditional camber under the feet, and it's plain to see just how versatile this board is. Internally the Typo utilises a responsive poplar wood core matched with structural layers created from playful and softer flexing Bi-Ax glass. This combination gives great performance without compromising any of the freestyle friendly feel, ensuring that the Typo really is a ride everything and anything board.
Stepping up the performance credentials one step further, YES use a more durable and faster sintered type base. This gives better wax hold and is more resistant to scrapes and impacts.
