And while YES has had a spotty track record production-wise I do agree that an asymmetrical directional board would be a real F-You to goofy riders. But I just can't get over the heel-side edge on my Big City.
True. On their greats true twin asym series they clearly mark the heelside so no matter if you are goofy or not.
So following on from Jenny Jones winning bronze in slopestyle at Sochi, a UK vendor offered a celebratory 30% discount on all snowboards they had in stock. They had a new Yes Big City 158 which was already discounted, so I could not resist the bargain price...
Reading these posts now, I'm wondering if it will be too long for me? I'm 5'11" and tip the scales at around 160lbs - I already have a NS Proto CT in 154, which I love (after detuning tip and tail), however I am not as comfortable on it at speed as I was on my old Salomon Official 158.
My plan is to keep the Yes Big City in the quiver for fresh and charging days, then use the Proto for more playing around and park days. Does the Yes Big City in 158 fit the bill here? I am asking as I still have time to send it back! Any advice gratefully received...unfortunately I won't be able to try out the Yes board till March, when it will be too late to return it
I have to say that the Yes Big City was amazing. It had the perfect amount of flex and I centered the stance. I did ride some powder with it but I should've set the stance back further, but I had a great time either way. I have to say the board is really fast. Even faster than I thought. It was great fun and I love it. So happy with my purchase.
