Yes 420 148 SNOWBOARD REVIEW 2016
TESTER: Peter Mullenbach
BOARD: Yes 420 148
OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM 1 TO 10: 3
OVERALL COMMENTS: This board was the wrong choice for the conditions as I personally felt it wasn’t stable enough for hard pack. Once I got it on edge it felt fine but the soft flex combined with the small physicality of the board made me feel out of control especially when trying to Ollie or riding through chunkier conditions. I’d be hyped to see how my experience changes in deeper snow although, I feel the board is in general just too soft.
RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 5: 3
SHAPE COMMENT: Shape was interesting and different which lead me to try it.
RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 5: 1
FLEX COMMENT: Too soft
RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS: 2
STABILITY THROUGH TURNS: Once this board locked into a turn it felt great.
RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 5: 5
GRAPHICS COMMENT: Stoked on the simplicity
RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 5: 1
COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS: Didn’t feel any pop, almost afraid to Ollie or jump because I didn’t feel comfortable landing.
RATE FLOAT IN POW IF AVAILABLE FROM 1 TO 5: 3
COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: Not Applicable
