Chi Modu

A LIMITED EDITION PROJECT
BY CHI MODU & YES.

Chi Modu is one of those guys whose Instagram feed is an endless stream of epic throwbacks. Back in the early-to-mid nineties when Hip-hop was making it’s first bull-run, Chi was there as a burgeoning photographer, recording its defining years and legendary characters. This special collaboration celebrates the historical storytelling his images convey and the impact these artists have had on our collective, modern culture.

Chi first picked up a camera while a student at Rutgers. After honing his skills at the International Center of Photography, he landed a job at The Source, which was the definitive magazine of hip hop culture. It was here that Chi developed relationships with the biggest icons of the hip hop movement, including Tupac Shakur, Notorious B.I.G., Mary J. Blige, and L-L Cool J, most of whom were not yet famous.

This work could only be at home in a LTD run, framed in the most advanced design of the YES. collection. The all-new, Asymmetrical MidBite Twin..

GREATS x CHI

A LIMITED EDITION PROJECT BY CHI MODU AND YES.

This years Greats is an all-new design. Still an asymmetrical twin with asym-flex, but we’ve added an asymmetrical MidBite to compliment the opposing side-cut specs. The end result is an enhancement of the board we’ve always loved, by delivering even better edge hold and greater stability on landings.

Asymmetrical MidBite

Asymmetrical MidBite

Back in the day, asymmetrical boards meant you had to choose between a regular or goofy-stance board. Not only was that a nightmare for retailers, it didn’t suit anyone with a duck stance – which is everyone now. The Asym Twin applies a tighter, deeper heelside radial sidecut compared to the toe. In effect, balancing out the difference in a body’s natural tendency that we get with directional allowing you to ride switch better than you ever have.

Regular or goofy - it’s still a true twin. Just flip it around.

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.
