    YES Men's Optimistic 2017 / 2018 Snowboard

    Launched last season to critical acclaim, the new Optimistic is Yes's entry into that up and coming high performance carving/snow surfing category. Combining proven technology from alpine boards with Yes's innovative shapes and sidecut technologies, it very quickly established itself as THE board for that style of riding. It's addictive combination of totally mind blowing on piste performance with the float and control of a powder board in the deep, ensured that anyone who did one run on this board was absolutely hooked, the fact that it was pretty much sold out worldwide by the first week in November is testament to just how mind blowing this board is.

    So, what is it that makes the Optimistic so special? Well the starting point must be the shape. Built around a fully directional platform it features a unique blunt profile powder nose. This state of the art shape combined with rocker in the front of the board gives stunning float in the pow whilst still delivering a relatively low swing weight. Match this with the mid wide platform, aggressive sidecut with camber between the feet and Yes's award winning Underbite edge design and what you have is a board that you can really crank on the piste, knowing that no matter how far you push it, you're not going to blow out those laid out turns with toe or heel drag.

    Internally the Optimistic is all about performance and heading this up is the powerful Power Drive Core. This class leading construction utilises both poplar and lightweight paulownia as its foundation, but it's the addition of carbon fibre wrapped bamboo stringers, which are inserted into pre-milled channels either side of the core, that really brings this board alive. Match this with the torsionally responsive tri-ax glass structural layers and super-fast sintered base and what you have here is a very special snowboard indeed.
