One Board to rule them all.
If you’re a more experienced rider and you’re looking for one board that’s going to conquer the whole mountain, then the 2021 YES Standard might be a perfect choice. As the best-selling model in the Yes range, the Standard has earned itself an enviable reputation as being one of the top boards in its category. Built around a state of the art directional twin chassis, it combines a versatile CamRock with Yes innovative MidBite sidecut. This game-changing combination creates a board that is agile and stable but which still carves like it’s on rails and floats like a dream. Match this with the high-end construction, and you have a board that delivers stunning performance no matter what or where you ride. Take just one run on this award-winning snowboard, and you’ll very quickly understand why it’s become almost the default board for riders who want one board to rule it all.
Rider Style: Experienced All Terrain Riders
The Standard is aimed at intermediate through to expert riders who are looking for a responsive, high-performance board that delivers stunning performance no matter what or where you ride.
Shape Overview: Directional Twin
The Standards advanced directional twin shape is key to its stunning all-terrain performance. Heading this up is the unique blunt nose profile. Taking its inspiration from the highly acclaimed Optimistic, this state of the art design gives unrivalled levels of lift and float, without feeling long and unwieldy. To provide the Standard with its responsive and stable underfoot feel, it utilises Yes’s advanced MidBite edge profile. This innovative design pulls in the edges between the insert packs, cheating the board into riding like it has a narrower waist. This unique design works so well that it allows the designers to increase the width of the board under the feet, improving float in pow while also giving a more stable platform for popping off jumps and kickers. For this season the Standard now features the new Slamback Stance, this adds an extra set of inserts allowing you to set back the stance for those bottomless powder days.
The Standards 3-4-3 CamRock profile combines mid-rise rocker at the tip and tail with a more pronounced camber through the middle of the board. This innovative profile produces hook free zones at the tips while still allowing the contact points to power-up turn initiation and exit. That little bit of rocker also works perfectly with the nose shape to deliver unrivalled levels of lift and float in deeper snow. By adding a more pronounced camber between the feet, the unique MidBite edge profile engages more securely creating a more responsive and dynamic feel through the turn.
As you would expect for such a high-performance board, the Standard’s construction utilises some of the most advanced technology available. Heading this up is the state of the art wood core. Combining durable poplar with lightweight paulownia and bamboo stringers running through the centre, the Standard delivers a powerful and responsive flex through the length, while cutting weight to the absolute minimum. To this, Yes then add structural layers formed from a torsionally stiff tri-ax weave glass fibre. This beefs up the torsional flex and ensures that no matter how hard or how fast you ride, you just know that the Standard won’t let you down.
As the Standard is all about performance, Yes step up the base to a True Sintered material. True Sintered is harder and more expensive than extruded, and it can be faster for those that ride aggressively fast.
