Yes’s award-winning all terrain freestyle board that rewrote the rule book

The Basic is the board that put Yes on the map. Its combination of exceptional performance, freestyle-inspired all-terrain versatility and competitive price, completely redefined snowboarding norms. As the winner of multiple awards including Transworld Good Wood’s and White Lines Editors Choice, this unique snowboard is proof that you don’t need to spend a lot of money to get an excellent performing snowboard. Aimed squarely at riders who are looking for a board that will let them take on absolutely any terrain that the mountain can throw at them, but who still want an easy-going ride, the Basic delivers a unique level of performance that blurs the line between entry-level feel and high-end response and control. Key to the Basic’s exceptional performance is its combination of high-quality construction and state of the art UnderBite edge profile. This innovative design and build have allowed Yes to create a truly stunning snowboard that really does punch above its weight.

Rider Style

Beginners through to Expert riders who are looking for a more balanced all terrain board that delivers an easy-going ride without compromising out and out performance.

Shape Overview

The Basic’s twin shape gives it a more balanced freestyle feel, so not only does it ride great on the mountain, but it’s entirely at home when you want to hit up the park. However, what makes the Basic a genuinely outstanding board is the addition of the unique UnderBite Edge profile. UnderBite edges re-distribute a rider’s weight in such a way that it enhances ease of turning 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 increases the edge pressure by distributing your weight/energy into the areas where it’s needed - from the binding out and through the centre of the board where the carving arc is taking place. This segmentation of the sidecut into three principal zones focuses your body weight into areas that initiate, hold and release turns.

Profile

The Basic’s 4-4-4 CamRock profile combines even rocker zones at the tip and tail with an even camber through the middle of the board. This innovative profile creates hook-free zones at the contact points, ensuring that when you hit the park, you’ll get that more reassuring feel when riding rails or pressing boxes. That rockered uplift at the front is also going to add extra float in the pow, so even though the Basic is a twin, it’s going to perform great everywhere. That versatility is carried over into the responsive camber. This extends from just before the insert packs and gives the board that more robust and reassuring underfoot feel that you only get from cambered boards.

Construction

The Basic is the perfect example of that old saying, ‘sometimes less is more’. Reading through the spec list, what you get is a traditional snowboard construction without any of the headline-grabbing super tech many brands flag up. However, that’s no bad thing, because what YES do is use a high-quality poplar wood core wrapped with high-quality bi-ax glass fibre. These two materials are the building blocks for a great snowboard; everything else at this price point is just fluff. So, what you get is a board that gives the perfect balance of pop, control and playfulness. Everything that you could ever ask for with this kind of board.

Base

The low maintenance easy repair extruded base delivers excellent performance in all conditions, all without the need to be continuously waxing it.
