STANDARD

TWIN VERSATILITY

Last year we advanced the Standard’s Directional Volume Twin shape, tweaked some key metrics like sidecut and waist width, then applied the Jackpot’s award winning Underbite outline. The end result is more float, more stability, more edge hold without compromising the response you demand.

Directional Volume Twin + Mid-Bite

OUTLINE

DIRECTIONAL VOLUME TWIN

As the lines between free-ride and freestyle continue to erase, we had to address the needs of guys committed to riding only twins but finding themselves in more pow. Nose and tail volume is hard to notice in hard-pack unless you’re nose/tail pressing, but in pow it affects floatation and you can feel it. This led to the simple idea of the Directional Volume Twin. Symmetrical flex, centered stance, identical wide-points of the board (therefore, NOT tapered), identical length shovel lengths but with a slightly lower volume tail.

MID-BITE

The MidBite steps the outline of the board inward 1.5mm just inside the insert pack. This step remains (rather than bumping back out like the Basic) down about 1/3 the length of the sidecut until just inside the next insert pack. This single long disruption of the sidecut between the bindings cheats the waist width narrower, providing quicker edge-to- edge response. Meanwhile, from your binding out to the end of the sidecut we maintain a board width that is a stable platform for popping, spinning, and landing.

POPLAR + BAMBOO

CORE

POPLAR/PAULOWNIA/BAMBOO + SLAMBACK STANCE

Creating a lighter, more responsive core than the Full Poplar. The Poplar + Bamboo uses the same durable core, lightens it up by replacing 30% of the Poplar with Paulownia and then inserts two bamboo stringers down the full length for added pop and response

BASE MATERIALS

SINTERED TRUE

Just like it says. Pellets or course powder is pressed until it forms a solid. There are several suppliers for our entire industry and they each have different codes for them, depending on the color and transparency. These codes can make it seem like you’re getting many different kinds and grades of sintered but they’re all pretty much the same as far as you and I will ever tell. True Sintered is harder and more expensive than extruded and it can be faster for those that ride aggressively fast. But to do that, it needs to be waxed and prepared for local conditions.

STANDARD

THIS YEAR WE TONE DOWN THE HYPER INTERNALS OF LAST YEAR’S STANDARD, MAKING IT MORE ACCESSIBLE AND USER-FRIENDLY TO CRUISE ON.

Using the Direction Volume Twin as its outline, the Standard has all the benefits of a true twin – equal swing weight, balance and symmetry – but it floats like a directional board when you need it to. From park laps to flying down groomed rollers to hidden pow stashes, this board sets the standard for all-mountain ability.

And courtesy of our good friend Kevin Sansalone, The Standard also features Backseat Inserts. An extra row of inserts located behind the main set for those morning-after-a-huge-dump days that even our Directional Volume Twin shape can’t keep you a-float. Just slam those binders back and let your rear leg breathe.

The Standard

In its introductory year in 2015, the Standard quickly became the go to board for hellmen such as Romain that have a hard time just cruisin’ around. With the Standard, what you put in, you get out in spades!

Using the Direction Volume Twin as its outline, the Standard has all the benefits of a true twin – equal swing weight, balance and symmetry – but it floats like a directional board when you need it to. To make it even more versatile, we’ve added Kevin Sansalone’s “Slam-Back” inserts so you can get your stance way back on those bottomless days. – Thanks Kev!

Under the top sheet, our most technically advanced core – the Power Drive – has gone through a major overhaul. Custom milled channels in the core are fitted with Bamboo rods wrapped in carbon, creating inner core tension that is perfectly matched to the sidecut of each board. The new Carbon PowerDrive core amplifies rider input into powerful rail-to-rail transitions and explosive turns.

THE STANDARD

The Standard represents the level of technical commitment and creative thinking that is at the heart of YES. Extremely fast, agile and responsive, this board eliminates any and every excuse you’ve ever had for not stepping up your game.

Using the Direction Volume Twin as its outline, the Standard has all the benefits of a true twin – equal swing weight, balance and symmetry – but it floats like a directional board when you need it to. Under the top sheet lies our most technically advanced core – the Power Drive. Here, parabolic beech rails create inner core tension, amplifying rider input into powerful rail-to-rail transitions and explosive turns.
