Why We Chose The YES. Greats Uninc: This is one of the most exciting and well thought out shapes in snowboarding.
We’ll admit, at first glance the YES. Greats looks a little weird (and we’re not just talking about the graphic), but trust us on this one, okay? YES. are pretty well known for the experimental shapes in their line, and the Greats was one of the first snowboards they released that really started to push convention.
“YES. certainly weren’t the first brand to play around with asymmetric shaping, but they are one of the best”
YES. classify The Greats as a freestyle snowboard, and if our team of testers are anything to go by, it does that with aplomb, but the clever shaping and sidecut theory here elevate The Greats to a level of carving and on piste performance that most park boards can only dream of. Using biomechanical theory to enhance the way your body works in unison with a snowboard, YES. have created a revolutionary deck that’ll ride park as well as it digs trenches.
Who Is The YES. Greats Uninc For?
You’ve been around the block a few times and you’re looking for something a little different. Although YES. put the Greats firmly in their freestyle category, we’d definitely call it more of an advanced all-mountain option, aimed squarely at chargers who refuse to compromise on performance, wherever they decide to go.
