As the board of choice for Yes founder and living legend Romain De Marchi, the Basic Uninc takes the award-winning innovative shape of Yes's regular Basic and gives it a complete Uninc work over to create a stunning freestyle focussed all-terrain board that is versatile enough to ride as your daily driver, but on those days when you want to turn the volume up to 11 is going to deliver a level of performance across the whole mountain that satisfies even the most demanding rider. Built around that state-of-the-art blunt-tipped twin shape that made the multi-award winning Basic such a success, the more performance focussed Basic Uninc still features Yes's acclaimed Underbite sidecut technology; this game-changing sidecut profile allows the board to deliver a level of edge control and response that you wouldn't expect from a freestyle derived twin tip shape giving the Basic Uninc all the balance, control and response that you could ever need. So, no matter if you're lapping the rail line in the park, hitting the kicker pro-line, or even hunting out back-country booters, this superb board keeps you in control all the time. However, the Basic Uninc is more than just about freestyle control. Thanks to that advanced Underbite sidecut technology and slam-back inserts, it also delivers a level of performance on the piste and in the pow that is nothing short of remarkable.
The Basic Uninc shares the same true-twin shape as Yes's regular Basic. This innovative design gives the board a balanced freestyle feel, delivering all the control that even the most committed freestyle ride could ever need. However, the shape is more than just a regular freestyle twin. Not only does it ride great in the park, but it's also equally at home when charging around the mountain. Again, as per the regular Basic, it's the unique UnderBite Edge profile that creates the Basic Uninc's game-changing riding performance. UnderBite edges re-distribute a rider's weight to enhance ease of turning and edge hold. Creating divots inward at the binding area reduces and disrupts the edge's surface area that has contact with the snow while the board turns. These divots increase 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 occurs. This segmenting the sidecut into three key zones focuses your body weight into areas that initiate, hold and release turns.
The Uninc Basic's camber profile is an update of what we would call a traditional camber. By starting the full-length camber profile just after the contact points, you get all the benefits of a conventional camber but also create a smoother, hook-free ride. The Camber profile dissipates the rider's energy more evenly along the board's edge, giving a more stable and responsive ride as the edge is engaged along its entire length.
As you would expect for Romain De Marchi's board, the Uninc Basic doesn't hold back regarding construction. Heading up its high-quality build is the advanced wood core. This advanced wood core combines durable poplar and lightweight paulownia with bamboo stringers running through the centre to deliver a poppy and powerful flex through the length of the board, all whilst reducing overall weight. Yes then creates structural layers formed from a torsionally responsive tri-ax weave glass fibre. This performance glass fibre stiffens up the torsional flex of the board, ensuring that no matter how hard you push, you can be confident that the Uninc Basic can take it all in its stride.
As the Uninc Basic is about performance, Yes step up the base material to a Sintered True. Sintered True is harder and more expensive than extruded, and it can be faster for those that ride aggressively fast.
