Review

The YES Emoticon is an all-mountain freestyle snowboard that’s built for the ladies who want a playful, yet responsive and intuitive board. It has a True Twin shape and a soft flex, but the key feature of this YES snowboard is its innovative UnderBite outlines. These are subtle indents along the board’s sidecuts in the binding area. These indents re-distribute your body weight onto the areas that help you turn. This results into very confident turning and a good edge hold. This board has camber in the centre which extends through the feet, which will give you a solid and dependable pop. The rocker in the nose and tail provide a nice buttery feel. Overall this season’s YES Emoticon is a very balanced snowboard. It’s playful and stable, feels good while jumping and can even handle the pipe. This is one of those boards that rides as well as you know you can.
