THE MULTI-AWARD WINNING BOARD WITH PRO MODEL PERFORMANCE AT A BARGAIN PRICE

It’s complicated to put into words just how good the Basic is because if you look at the name, the price and the construction you’ll think there’s nothing special about this board. However, take just one run, and you’ll be blown away. You don’t win multiple Transworld Good Woods and Whitelines Editors Choice awards by not being something a little bit special. So, what is it that makes the Basic so good? It’s simple really; YES have got absolutely everything on this board spot on. From the shape, the construction and the innovative Under bite edge profile, everything works in total harmony. This creates a unique twin tip board that combines what is a relatively easy going ride with a level of performance that you just don’t expect on a board like this.

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

Shape Overview
The Basic’s true twin shape gives it a more balanced freestyle feel, so not only does it ride great on the mountain, 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 Under Bite Edge profile. Under Bite 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 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 rockeredu plift 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 ahigh-quality poplar wood core wrapped with high-qualitybi-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.

What type of base does it have?
The low maintenance easy repair extruded base delivers excellent performance in all conditions, all without the need to be continuously waxing it.
