    YES Men's Optimistic 2016 / 2017 Snowboard

    Although the Optimistic was in the range last season the 2017 model is about as far away from last season's board as it's possible to be. Designed around one of the most advanced shapes available, and manufactured with high-end construction, the stunning new Optimistic storms into that new generation of board that combines truly mind bending piste performance with the float and ride of the most powder specific board.

    Built around a fully directional shape with powder nose and short powerful tail, the Optimistic can be ridden up to 6cm shorter than a standard board. This reduction in length delivers a truly remarkable level of manoeuvrability and when combined with a tight sidecut radius and camber under the feet gives a ride that will blow your mind when charging the piste or just cruising around.

    But don't think this board is all about piste riding, get it into the pow and it's a revelation. The low-rise rocker on the wide volume nose gives a level of float that has to be experienced, making the Optimistic one of the best performance powder boards on the market.

    Internally YES utilise some of the most advanced construction available, heading this up is the super advanced Power Drive core. This state-of-the-art wood core combines lightweight paulownia and durable poplar, reinforced with super poppy bamboo stringers running through the centre.

    However, what makes the core really special though is the addition of the Power Drive rails. This adds milled channels which run parallel to the sidecut on either side of the board. Into these channels YES add additional bamboo stringers that have been pre-wrapped in carbon fibre; this unique design not only adds power through the length of the board but also concentrates that power at the edges, which when combined with the Under-Bite edge profile ensures that the Optimistic delivers a level of control on the edge that is nothing short of sensational. á

    Add to this Tri-Ax glass structural layers to increase torsional stiffness and what you have is a totally stunning board that will transform how you go snowboarding.

    Finally, the high-end sintered base gives a superfast glide totally in keeping with the rest of the board's high speed DNA.
