This is going to be a quick overview of all the 2020 YES snowboards.
First I'll take a look at the new boards for the 2019-20 season, and any old 2019 boards that aren't returning in a 2020 model.
Then I'll put each board into the categories where I see them fitting - which may or may not coincide with how YES categorize them.
New 2020 YES Snowboards
The new YES boards for 2019-20 are:
2019 YES Snowboards not Returning
The 2019 boards that aren't returning with a 2020 model:
All 2020 YES Snowboards by Category
YES's 2019-20 boards have been categorized below. This is according to the categories here at SnowboardingProfiles.com and not necessarily the same as what YES labels them as.
Of course these are only broad categories as every board is different and most don't fit neatly into anything, but this is a rough guide.
YES BEGINNER SNOWBOARDS
YES PARK/FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
YES ALL-MOUNTAIN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
YES AGGRESSIVE ALL-MTN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
YES ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
YES AGGRESSIVE ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
*No YES boards strictly match my definition for this category. The PYL wouldn't be out of place here, but is better described as Freeride, IMO.
YES FREERIDE SNOWBOARDS
YES POWDER & SHORT/WIDE SNOWBOARDS
YES YOUTH SNOWBOARDS
So there you have the 2020 YES snowboards.
Essentially 2 new boards in and the Decade just changing it's name - that plus some fairly significant changes to the Jackpot and 2020 and some new sizes for a few models.
- YES Standard: 167
- YES Ghost: 167
- YES PYL: 164W
- YES Optimistic: 161
Again I was lucky enough to get on several YES boards, and I was particularly enamored by the Hybrid. My review for that and all the 2020 YES boards that I rode will come out during the year. Check out the button below for all of Snowboarding Profiles' YES snowboard reviews.
