Turn Ons/Swipe Right: Really well rounded board. Can be a mountain freestyle or directional powder ride. Does everything well.
Turn Offs/Swipe Left: Less Edge hold than the Standard and Ghost. Need full sized discs to use set back inserts.
The Yes Globe is a very recommendable, stable, forgiving, pretty poppy, mountain freestyle board for groomers but also likes to set it back in powder. Just make sure you pair it with full size disc bindings.

YES Globe 2021 Snowboard Review- How it rides and who it is for
How This Review Happened:
We spent our precious Good Ride dollars to buy this and review it.
Conditions: Pretty good to ok groomers, and an early season slackountry time in pretty good powder with the Drift Boards.
Riders: James (Size 9, 5’10” 185-190lbs)
Boots: Burton Kendo, Burton Tourist, Burton SLX
Insoles: Sandsole Custom Insoles, F.I.T. Gamechangers, F.I.T. Gameghangers LP
Bindings: Union Atlas
Similar Boards (but not the same): YES Ghost, YES Standard,Korua Otto, Lib Tech Terrain Wrecker, Capita Mercury, YES NSB, Endeavor Pioneer, Jones Mountain Twin, Endeavor Ranger, K2 Manifest, Yes Typo, Jones Frontier, Ride Algorythm, Ride Wild Life,
Set-Up: 21.5” Wide. 18 front -9 back, 15 front -15 back. On reference and set all the way back.
The YES Globe Feels normal bordering on being light (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 the YES Globe. 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.
152: 7.5-8.5 US
154: 8-9 US
156: 8.5-9.5 US
Shape/Camber/On Snow Feel/Ability Level
Shape/Camber/On Snow Feel/Ability Level
The Yes Globe has a moderate camber that goes a little past the binding transitioning into a moderate amount of rocker. So it has a little bit of that camber spring but still is stable and forgiving. It tracks really well onefooting off a chair or down a long flat cat track. It makes for a very consistent feel underfoot in all conditions and it is easy to skid a turn. When you are on reference stance it is very centered and feels almost like a true twin.
The Yes Globe has a really cool feel for buttering. It is easy but not too easy to where you butter onto your ass. The YES Ghost is way harder and the YES Standard is a little too easy. The pop is pretty snappy even though the YES Globe has a little of that rubbery feel common with many YES boards. Rubbery isn’t a bad word and it makes for a very balanced flex personality.
The YES Globe has a pretty fast base that felt faster than the Ghost and Standard by a little bit. It is pretty damp too and in between the Ghost and Standard for minimizing chatter at high speed.
Such a great board for all day riding and the YES Globe is not a fatiguing ride in uneven snow. This core personality with a nice balance of being poppy and rubbery really does an amazing job of being able to control in messy snow with emerging bumps. It can’t power over them at high speeds too easy but it doesn’t buck or bounce much at moderate speeds.
I wish the YES Globe had more grip and it would have been cool to see this with mid/bite like the Standard and Ghost.
Super fast without being twitchy. The YES Globe is a very quick turning board.
Very turny board. Such a fun board to make short to medium wide turns and it is easy to circle carve. The camber doesn’t make hard carving turns as satisfying as the Ghost but it is a good bump up from the Standard. It is a nice balance of being forgiving while still being fun to carve.
With a 21.5″ stance width the YES Globe can be set to 2.25″ back from center of when using the Slam Back inserts. You need full size discs to use them though and they don’t work with mini disc bindings. The reduced surface area in the tail makes for an almost directional twin feel on groomers but then sinks a little easier than a true twin would. Then you have the rocker before a nose with a little more surface area. It makes for pretty good directional float in powder. The Standard and Ghost have this too making all of them better in powder than many directional twins. The Standard was the best but just by a touch over the Globe and the Ghost was a little bit behind both of these boards.
So other than edge hold, the Yes Globe is a great all mountain ride. It does nothing exceptional but everything really well. It is one of the better one board quiver rides out there.
