Last year we re-designed the Jackpot and unveiled Mid-Bite to the world. Todd Richards didn’t know what was up with those funky edges but he claimed it was the best park board he’d ever ridden. TWS Good Wood testers agreed and yet another trophy went up on YES.’s crowded mantle.
Responsive, fast, playful and stable - all attributes brought to you via a simple but ingenious disruption of traditional radial sidecut. MidBite cheats the odds by having a narrower waist width that creates faster toe-to-heel response time. Landing stability and the platform necessary for ollies and take-offs is maintained by bringing the board width back out just outside the binding areas.
MidBite blends the response of a narrow waist width with the stability of wider nose and tail.
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.
Our baseline core for tip to tail wood-core snowboard construction. Strikes a predictable balance between durability, consistent flex and light weight.
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.
