Compared with the Optimistic, The Y is the slightly tamed down, more affordable and powder friendly beast from YES. Snowboards. The keyword here being “slightly”. Even by watering down the supercharged nature of its predecessor, this thing still swings some pretty serious punches.

Who Is The YES. The Y For?
The more accessible flex pattern and the more affordable price bracket opens up The Y to a huge pool of potential candidates. It’s still very much freeride focussed (think early morning groomers, banked corners, powder bowls and smashing wind lips into the next resort over), but a more torsionally forgiving core makes it a board that doesn’t only come to life at warp speed.
