Changing of the guard

The all new woman's park board is here. It was developed by Juliette Pelchat @jubespelchat for women who charge and want a board that performs to the best of their ability. Juliette rides the 149. The versatility of the MidBite profile makes this board the perfect board for riders that want stability and response when they ride. The art was made by Crystal Legoffe @not.enough.ram a Whistler local that also rides YES. boards. She worked closely with Juliette while building this graphic.

Hi! Crystal here, I am an artist and snowboarder from Yukon territories. I've been creating art for as long as I could hold a pencil, designing boards has been a dream of mine since I started snowboarding! I am so excited about the first YES rival and I hope you feel like a badass riding it!

Riding Type

outline

MidBite

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.

Core

Full Poplar

Our baseline core for tip to tail wood-core snowboard construction. Strikes a predictable balance between durability, consistent flex and light weight.

Base Profile

Camber

Base Materials

Sintered True

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.
