The following is a quick overview of the 2022 YES snowboards lineup.
First I will take a look at any new boards for the 2021-22 season, and any old 2020-21 boards that aren't returning with a 2022 model.
Then I'll place each board into the categories where I see them best fitting.
New 2022 YES Snowboards
The new boards for 2021-22 are:
Exiting 2021 YES Snowboards
The 2021 boards that aren't returning with a 2022 model:
All 2022 YES Snowboards by Category
Below I have categorized YES's 2021-22 collection. This is according to the categories here at SnowboardingProfiles.com and not necessarily the same as how YES might label them.
Of course these are only broad categories as every board is different, 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 FREERIDE SNOWBOARDS
YES POWDER & SHORT/WIDE SNOWBOARDS
YES SPLIT BOARDS
YES YOUTH SNOWBOARDS
So there you have the 2022 YES snowboards.
4 in and 4 out, so total number in the line up the same, but with a slightly different look overall.
Out with the Old
The Ghost is gone! A little surprising to see it go, but I guess they felt it unnecessary in their lineup. The Globe Traditionalist is also gone. It has changed every year (e.g. 2021 Globe NSB, though that wasn't just a name change). Not technically replaced by anything, though the new Basic Uninc RDM is in the same ballpark for sure).
The Pro20 is out after just one season and the 420 goes too, replaced by the 420 Uninc JPS (though with quite a few changes (see above for the specific changes)
In with the New
3 new Uninc models come in - the Basic Uninc RDM, Hybrid Uninc DCP and 420 Uninc JPS. The Hybird Uninc is very similar to the regular Hybrid, but the Basic Uninc and 420 Uninc are quite different from their regular counterparts (see above for specifics).
Also in is the Rival - a new women's freestyle board, which is a combiation of the YES Dicey and YES Jackpot.
Changes for Exisiting Models
All the existing models look identical, including sizing, except:
- The Greats gets a new 149 size
I was able to test some 2022 YES boards and I'll release my reviews for those through the year.
