This paper contains a natural generalisation of the twist described by the basic gerbe to a higher twist over SU(n) in a localisation of K-theory. Its construction is based on exponential functors on the category of finite-dimensional inner product spaces. It will be shown that each polynomial exponential functor is defined up to equivalence of monoidal functors by an involutive solution to the Yang-Baxter equation (an involutive R-matrix). Likewise, each R-matrix with Thoma parameters (0,(b1,…,bm)) for non-negative integers bi defines a polynomial exponential functor in a natural way. For these twists we will also express the indecomposable part of their rational characteristic classes in terms of their Thoma parameters.
