• Excellent Edge Hold
  • Great Pop
  • Stable, Twin with Set Back Inserts for powder


  • Limited Sizing
  • Will probably be gone next season


The YES Basic Uninc is a hard gripping, stable poppy twin with a set back insert for powder. It’s a very versatile one board quiver, all conditions ride.

The Basic Uninc 2024 has not changed since 2022 so this review still stands.

Set-Up: 21.5” Wide. 15 front -15 back. Centered.

Approximate Weight:

The YES Basic Uninc feels pretty middle ground.  (We don’t put in the exact weight because with wood cores there is no consistency in a boards weight)


Here are some ideal US boot sizes for these YES Basic Uninc boards. You can of course go bigger or smaller but these work best for not turning the board slower than it should be and not having the dreaded Toe & Heel Drag.
149: 7-8
152: 7.5-8
158: 8.5-9.5
156w: 10-10.5

Shape/Camber/On Snow Feel/Ability Level

The YES Basic Uninc is a true twin so it feels very much like a centered mountain freestyle ride. The camber is a little more than most YES boards while still not being as much as their modern camber. It is stable bordering on the side being semi-locked in but can still skid turns well enough for intermediates. This is very much like the Globe NSB from 2020 only with more exaggerated camber as well as rocker. It is very consistent underfoot in all conditions you ride. It is a one footing and flat basing champ.

Yes Basic Uninc Camber Profile

Flex Personality/Pop/Buttering/Dampness

Yes has a very rubbery flex that doesn’t always pop as hard as some of its peers. The YES Basic Uninc still has that rubbery personality but a lot more pop than most YES boards. It is really fun to ollie but can still butter much easier on snow than you would think. This flex can get a little chattery in the tip/tail but it never gets cranky or unmanageable in varied terrain. It is a great all day ride.

Speed/Base Glid

The YES Basic Uninc Fast but not super fast base. It’s a little behind the Jones Mountain Twin but no slouch by any means when well waxed. You can go well above moderate mountain speed if you need to point it too without the board falling apart.

Edge Hold

There is really impressive grip and the YES Basic Uninc can hold in hard to icy snow with the best of them.

Turn Initiation

Fast but not twitchy. You have a pretty narrow board compared to many modern shapes with a pretty turny sidecut. I love how this transitions from edge to edge.

Turning Experience/Carving

When you commit to a turn the YES Basic Uninc has a lot of spring out of it and it can competently turn just about any radius you are into. It doesn’t seem like a lot of extra camber in comparison to other camrock boards in YES’s line but you really feel it on snow. It leans a little more towards across the groomer carves but can easily do long drawn out down the line s-turns.


So with a 22.5” stance width you can get 2.25” back on center of board with these set back inserts. You just need full sized discs so you can use these. If you have mini discs (except Rome’s) you can’t use them and essentially have a twin. Combine this with the decent rocker and you have a pretty easy floater for what this board is. The Standard is a touch better here but I prefer the extra pop/camber/faster turn so I’m ok with a touch less float.


The YES Basic Uninc goes either way just like a double ender should. It also is one of my first choices for pipe riding. Jibbing isn’t the strong point here but this can hit some big kickers. It doesn’t hate small air either though and actually really shined there for yours truly.


So get this and get it quick if it calls to you. It will probably be gone next season and next season will probably have a different offering. I love this board. It is like the Yes Globe NSB 2020 only with a little more camber and a little higher rocker after. The Globe NSB had better graphics for an older guy but the Basic Uninc has a better/poppier ride. I had an Uninc Back in the day and loved it. This has evolved a ton since the 2000’s and kept up well with the times.

I got the YES basic uninc in the 156W size paired with union Falcor bindings

I had a chance to test the board in a a spring kind of snow day, meaning that in the morning the groomers were decent, but from mid day to the afternoon it was sort of mushy.

The board: I feel the difference vs the Rossi one Lf in two areas mainly:

the pop and camber rebound and the fact that is a true twin; pop makes the board feel live and giving you back what you put in, though at the price of good coordination expecially when doing cross under carves. If you leverage the pop of the board it comes back underneat you effortlessly, but if you mess it up with coordination it returns not in timing with your action. On longher radius carves, the board push towards a more spring out of the turn, so a bit of different style vs the one, something to get used to again (the burton cusom X was similar). Going switch is really the same of going regular and you truly feel that the only difference is you and the body posture difference between the two sides, no excuse now it is you...but this is what I was looking for and is somehow educating you to ride the same...after two days on the board I already do quite ride the same but on the steapest sections. On carving larger turns i feel the board would like to get a smaller arc and get some skid into fore and aft sidecut (7.5 ish m radius), probably just a feeling and the snow was not the good one for such test, and by the way and no mean I am a tester.

The grip of the sidecut is wonder, probably better than the one Lf, very grippy also on blu ice.

On the bindings Union Falcor:

these have been surprising, very well made, the quality is very nice and the design too; if I crank the ankle strap expecially on the right side I feel a pressure point I did not have with the Burton Missions. They feel stiff on the highback, though sideways (tail to front of board) they are quite loose, and these surprised me and challenged since I felt lack of support I didn't expect from such bindings. Expecially on that mushy snow, the board was force to sudden stops or decelerations and my body was pushed on the front of the board and couldn't leverage on the bindings to avoid that.

Probably something I need to get used to and will pay off when trying some butters or freestyle moves letting me getting more easily on the tail or front of the board.

I believe we need to get used to equipment within a limit and not viceversa, since equipment evolves and we need to evolve too, I don't have a chance to ride so many days a year as you guys do so for me is not a continuous pattern on equipment, but a sort of pulse one. I need for sure to ride this combo a bit more to have a better feeling and in better snow conditions...will see. So far I am very pleased with the investment.

Had high hopes for this. I spent about 10 days on it trying to like it. 156 wide. I was expecting a lively nice carving board with superior edge hold. I found it lacking in energy l, slow edge to edge and didn’t grip too well which is strange because I have other boards with same disrupted side cut( optimistic, hybrid dcp) maybe I had a dud. Anyway I sold and went back to my asymulator and bought mega merc.
