Other specialists in the category scored better in Hard-Snow Integrity, but none was more versatile and balanced than the all-new Yumi. Japanese for "bow," as in bow and arrow, the Yumi lives up to its name: The more power you apply, the more performance it delivers. It has reserves of strength and energy that will, if tapped, crush the stoutest lines on the planet. Utter one command, and it snaps diligently into place. But should you relax, tip rocker and a metal-free construction make it supremely forgiving - never bucking or locking you into an arc. Lively, dynamic, responsive, and always up for adventure. Teague: "It responds to the input you give it."
