Last year the Standard evolved its Directional Volume Twin heritage with some tweaks to key metrics like sidecut, waist width and length offering within the series. The most significant performance change was the application of our award-winning MidBite outline. The end result is more float, more stability and more edge hold in a board we loved, without compromising any response that we all demand.

Construction + Core
CamRock 3-4-3: Camber underfoot with rocker at tip and tail
Directional Volume Twin: As the lines between free-ride and freestyle continue to erase, YES had to address the needs of guys committed to riding only twins but finding themselves in more pow. Nose and tail volume is hard to notice in hard-pack unless you’re nose/tail pressing, but in pow it affects floatation and you can feel it. This led to the simple idea of the Directional Volume Twin. Symmetrical flex, centered stance, identical wide-points of the board (therefore, NOT tapered), identical length shovel lengths but with a slightly lower volume tail.
Poplar/Paulownia/Bamboo + Slamback Stance: Creating a lighter, more responsive core than the Full Poplar. The Poplar + Bamboo uses the same durable core, lightens it up by replacing 30% of the Poplar with Paulownia and then inserts two bamboo stringers down the full length for added pop and response.
Base + Edges
Sintered True: Just like it says. Pellets or course powder is pressed until it forms a solid. There are several suppliers for our entire industry and they each have different codes for them, depending on the color and transparency. These codes can make it seem like you’re getting many different kinds and grades of sintered but they’re all pretty much the same as far as you and I will ever tell. True Sintered is harder and more expensive than extruded and it can be faster for those that ride aggressively fast. But to do that, it needs to be waxed and prepared for local conditions.
