If you're after a board that you can take anywhere on the mountain, in all conditions and all types of terrain, a board that you can ride as a complete beginner or an experienced rider, then the Emoticon is the board for you. Sharing its design and construction with the highly acclaimed Basic, this Transworld Good Wood award-winning board combines class leading performance with stunning value for money.
Built around a lightweight twin shape it delivers a balanced feel that is both perfect for honing your skills in the park and cruising the mountain. Now to give the Emoticon its all-terrain response YES fit it with their state-of-the-art 4/4/4 CamRock profile. This combines equal amounts of Rocker at the tip and tail with camber under the feet to give the perfect balance of hook-free nose and tail, floaty powder performance and rock solid and stable edge hold.
But what sets the Emoticon apart from other boards in this class, is the addition of YES's revolutionary Under-Bite edge profile. This innovative design places large indentations along the edges of the board under the toes and heels. These indentations directed the riders energy out to the contact points at the tip and tail and into the centre of the sidecut ensuring the Emoticon turns easier and holds an edge better than a standard profiled board.
To ensure that the Emoticon lives up to its potential YES utilise a high-quality construction. The tip to tail wood core is created from durable poplar and delivers a lively ride but is still forgiving enough to not punish any mistakes. Match this with the Bi-Ax glass structural layers and you have a board that delivers great performance but not at the expense of its user-friendly easy-going nature.
Finally, the easy repair low maintenance extruded base gives a great ride in all snow conditions.
