AWARD WINNING ALL TERRAIN PERFORMANCE WITHOUT BREAKING THE BANK

Sharing its design and construction with the multi-award-winning Basic, the Emoticon is Yes’s ride anything do everything all terrain board. Aimed squarely at riders who are looking for a board that will let them take on the whole mountain. Its combination of class-leading performance and all-terrain versatility ensure that no matter what you ride it’ll always have your back. As the winner of a Transworld Good Wood award last season, the Emoticon isn’t just about versatility, it’s also about great performance. By utilising tried and tested construction alongside state of the art design, such as the UnderbiteEdge Profile, Yes have managed to create a mellow easy going board that can step up its performance when you need it to.

Rider Profile
Beginners through to Expert riders who are looking for amore balanced all terrain board that delivers an easy-going ride without compromising out and out performance.

Shape Overview
The Emoticon’s true twin shape gives it a more balanced freestyle feel, so not only does it ride great on the mountain, it’s entirely at home when you want to hit up the park. However, what makes the Emoticon a truly outstanding board is the addition of the unique UnderBite Edge profile. UnderBite edges re-distribute a rider’s weight in such a way that it enhances ease of turning and edge hold. Creating divots inward at the binding area reduces and disrupts the surface area of the edge that has contact with the snow while the board is turning. This increases the edge pressure by distributing your weight/energy into the areas where it’s needed - from the binding out and through the centre of the board where the carving arc is taking place. This segmentation of the sidecut into three key zones focuses your body weight into areas that initiate, hold and release turns.

Profile
The Emoticon’s CamRock profile combines even rocker zones at the tip and tail with an even camber through the middle of the board. This innovative profile creates hook-free zones at the contact points ensuring that when you hit the park, you’ll get that more reassuring feel when riding rails or pressing boxes. That rocker at the front is also going to add extra float in the pow, so even though the Emoticon is a twin, it’s going to perform great everywhere. That versatility is carried over into the responsive camber. This extends from just before the insert packs and gives the board that solid and reassuring underfoot feel that you only get from cambered boards.

Construction
The Emoticon is the perfect example of that old saying, ‘sometimes less is more’. Reading through the spec list, what you get is a traditional snowboard construction without any of the headline-grabbing super tech many brands flag up. However, that’s no bad thing because what YES do is use a high-quality poplar wood core wrapped with high-qualitybi-ax glass fibre. These two materials are the building blocks for a great snowboard, everything else at this price point is just fluff. So, what you get is a board that gives the perfect balance of pop, control and playfulness. Everything that you could ever ask for with this kind of board.

What type of base does it have?
The low maintenance easy repair extruded base delivers excellent performance in all conditions, all without the need to be continuously waxing it.
