Why we chose the YES Greats Snowboard: You’ll be happier than a pig in shit with this badboy strapped to your feet.
Back once again, the YES. Greats comes charging in to reclaim its throne as the mac daddy of the YES. freestyle line. It’s aimed squarely at experienced riders looking to strap into something a little different. If you’re aiming to dominate, both in the park, and out on the mountain, then get ready to go full send because the Greats will tick boxes that you didn’t even know you had.
JP Solberg, DCP and Romain De Marchi are three of the the best to ever do it, and after splitting from their UnInc roots, went on to form YES. Snowboards. The Greats pays homage to the glory days of the UnInc crew where big mountain freestyle reigned supreme.
“Get ready to send it because the Greats will tick boxes that you didn’t even know you had”
Straight off the bat you can see the unusual asymmetric shape of the Greats, if you’ve never ridden one before then hold onto your gonads because this thing will rail heel carves with the best of them.
Because of the way your body is made, it’s way easier to get right up onto the toe edge on a snowboard thanks to the leverage from your knees. YES. have deepened up the sidecut on the heel edge to counteract these biomechanical inefficiencies and drive more power through your heels. This balances out the board and gives more response through your carves.
