If you've been riding since the early 2000s, you probably remember a time when twin-shaped, cambered boards were all the rage. It was in this golden era of freestyle riding the original Uninc series came to life, giving some of the best freestyle riders a groundbreaking platform to not only progress their technical freestyle skills, but also to highlight some of the pitfalls inherent to riding at the time, mainly the corporate influence permeating the industry. The Yes Greats Uninc Snowboard carries on this anti-establishment theme that made the original Uninc a cult classic, but it's reinvigorated with an asymmetric twin shape, CamRock profile, plus the new-school tech you've come to expect from a board of this caliber.
Although it draws heavily on influences of the past, the Greats Uninc Snowboard is a pretty damn innovative board in its own right, considering it was one of the first freestyle boards to use an asymmetric sidecut. You'll find this asymmetric twin is incredibly balanced on switch take-offs and landings, due to its centered stance. Better yet, it links turns effortlessly down the mountain with the edge-to-edge response usually lacking in a dedicated freestyle board. We'd chalk this up to its deeper heelside sidecut, which helps you really lay into those heelside carves without having to dial in excess forward lean on your bindings.
Although the Greats Uninc pays homage to the past, it's certainly up to speed on modern riding technologies and board profiles. The CamRock profile places responsive camber underfoot for locked-in carves and energetic snap, paired with a bit of rocker at the tips for a looser, catch-free feel when you're playing around the park. Inside the Greats Uninic, you'll find a poplar core that's supplemented with paulownia wood for a 30 percent lighter feel, as well as bamboo stringers for increased snap. Yes didn't stop there, increasing the liveliness of the board with an asymmetric carbon stringer along the heelside edge for amplified carving response.
