Yes PYI 159 SNOWBOARD REVIEW 2016
TESTER: Josh Reid
BOARD: Yes PYI 159
OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM 1 TO 10: 5
OVERALL COMMENTS: This board was fun up to a certain speed, and then it felt unstable. Solid for an all-arounder, but there were at least three that I preferred above this for responsiveness and stability through a turn.
RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 5: 4
SHAPE COMMENT: I was drawn to the shape–looked like a good all-mountain board.
RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 5: 3
FLEX COMMENT: Too soft for me, particularly in the shovel. At 50 to 60 mph on Sundance, the board started to feel unstable. It didn’t feel like I could lay into a turn at speed without it wobbling.
RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS: 2
STABILITY THROUGH TURNS: See above. I felt unsure of this board over 45 or 50 mph when pressing hard on a turn felt wobbly.
RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 5: 4
RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 5: 3
COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS: A bit dull from turn to turn.
RATE FLOAT IN POW IF AVAILABLE FROM 1 TO 5:
COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: na
