Yes Hello 2021 Review by The Good Ride
New for the 2021 season is the Yes Hello. This is a directional twin, all mountain snowboard. The Yes Hello seems to be a more mellow version of the Hel Yes. It almost has all of the same features but has a slightly softer flex. It seems like it would be good for and intermediate and up rider looking for a resort board that can dabble everywhere.
Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews. No one is perfect and we do make money from the “Where To Buy” links below, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average rider’s perspective.
How This Review Happened: We borrowed this for an extended demo and then returned it.
Sizes Available: 146, 149, 152, 155
Conditions: Nothing special, just some hard pack groomers and a little soft snow in some places. A little bit of sticky powder.
Riders: Steph and Paige
Boots: Vans Ferra
Bindings: Union Milan
On Snow Feel: The Yes Hello felt medium locked in. You get the camber between your feet, but the slightly softer flex gives it a more forgiving feel than say the Hel Yes.
Powder: I only got to ride the Hello in some sun baked powder. But it did pretty well for being a directional twin board. It could be a good option if you don’t want to buy more than one board, and would just rather set this one back when the snow falls. It isn’t quite as easy to ride in powder as the Hel Yes, I think because of the softer flex. But it still does ok.
Turn Initiation and Carving: The Yes Hello is good at dabbling all over the mountain. It isn’t a carving board personality but you can carve it. I didn’t get a whole lot of energy back from it when carving, but there is still fun to be had on it when laying down a carve. It felt medium fast to turn edge to edge, and I felt it likes skidded turns just as much as locked in turns. It is somewhere in the middle range of all of them.
Speed: It felt medium damp to me when riding it faster. Again, it isn’t quite as damp or chargy as the Hel Yes but it is similar. It’s just a little more dialed back.
Uneven Terrain: The Hello can ride pretty well through trees and bumps. It is pretty easy to maneuver in tighter spaces for a rider with a little experience in these areas.
Edge Hold: The Yes Hello comes with one of my favorite sidecut disruptions. It has the underbite located under your toes and heels to give you added traction in ice. It holds its own in ice without being super grabby.
Flex: This board has a medium flex to keep it semi damp but still feeling slightly forgiving at the same time.
Switch: It is a directional twin so it rides pretty well switch. There is a slight difference, but you can’t really tell.
Pipe: I wasn’t able to ride this in the pipe, but I think it would do pretty well with the edge hold that it has.
Jumps: This board would be fun for an intermediate and up rider on jumps. It has the camber energy in it and is pretty stable too for landings. It isn’t a “park” board, but it can dabble in the park for sure.
Overall: The new Yes Hello board is a good option for those riders who like to stay in the resort area. If you rode the Hel Yes and felt it was just a little too much board, then this would be a great step down from that in terms of aggressiveness. Or if you are an all mountain rider who sees some ice on a regular basis, this could work for you too.
The YES Hello – an all-mountain board that was created to explore any terrain. This is a board for riders interested in a less aggressive version of the Hel Yes. The Hello is a great middle-of-the-road board for the rider looking to dabble in a bit of everything.
The Hello is the friendly little sister of the Hel Yes. Although these boards share the same shape, the cores vary, allowing the Hello to have a toned-down feeling to it. The Hello is a bit softer, allowing the rider to have a slightly easier time telling this board what to do, but this also means it has a bit less pop and snap.
With a medium flex (6/10) and hybrid camber rocker profile, this board is steady at high speeds and can hold an edge while carving, but still has enough give to play around a bit in the park. It performed well when transitioning from groomers to tree runs, charging through the chunder. This directional twin rides great switch and preformed well in
powder even with a centered stance. When the storms hit and the snow gets deep, you can set yourself way back and stay afloat with additional help from the rockered nose. In my experience, the Hello was easily able to stay on top of some softer powder.
The sintered base will allow you to cruise at whatever speed you want while the UnderBite will give you a boost of confidence when you are faced with icy conditions. The edge hold on this board is outstanding. It will hold a line through ice but doesn’t feel catchy on softer snow. The Hello was medium quick to turn and easy to perform skidded
turns on. In the trees, it was moderately responsive.
This YES Hello is well suited for beginner to intermediate riders who want a board that can go all over the resort. Powder, park, groomers – this board will do it all.
