There is always one name that will come to mind when big mountain snowboarding is discussed: Jeremy Jones. Jeremy started Jones Snowboards to design snowboards that can handle any terrain in all condition and provide reliability when your safety and performance is on the line.
Unlike most companies, Jones Snowboards uses traditional camber construction on all of their snowboards while adding varying early-rise/rocker elements to each board. This gives you an ultra-responsive, stable platform from the camber underfoot with rocker throwing in the extra float you need on deep days. Adding Mellow Magne-Traction technology to their boards seemed a no-brainer for the situations team riders find themselves in, but also adding it to the inside edge of their splitboards for edge-hold on the ascent proves they know what is needed on the mountain. From the eleven different models available, only three decks are not offered in a splitboard. Three different female specific models, including one splitboard, offer ladies all the benefits of bomber board construction tuned and built for their needs.
Flagship- Big mountain weaponry at its finest. Carbon stringers, protective aluminum tip covers, increased edge material, full wood core, Magne-traction; it just sounds like it wants to go fast. Sizes: 154, 158, 161, 164, 163wide, 168wide. Genius Feature: Get rowdy with confidence; stiff construction means increased control in precarious terrain.
Solution: The splitboard meant to take over the world; or take all over the world. Directional rocker with camber underfoot, protective aluminum tip covers, inner and outer Magne-traction, blunt tip, carbon stringers; it'll get you there and back with ease. Sizes: 154, 158, 161, 164, 163wide, 168wide. Genius Feature: Why sacrifice on either end of splitboading? The solution performs up and down.
Mountain Twin: Its not like Jeremy and his teammates don't throw down with style, they need a freestyle oriented board too! Twin profile design, camber-rocker combination, and solid and splitboard options; some days you just need to air it out. Sizes: 151, 154, 157, 160, 158wide, 161wide, 164wide; 157 split, 160 split. Genius Feature: Hitting it or landing it switch, the centered stance lets you slay natural terrain and sculpted park features with the best of them.
Hovercraft: You say swallowtail, I'll say powder. While not a traditional swallowtail design, the Hovercrafts stiff, notched tail will sink in deep powder and execute turns with grace from the moderately tapered shape. Add rocker to the solid and splitboard options and you're set. Sizes: 152, 156, 160; same in splitboard. Genius Feature: Pow slashing, soul riding bliss; the hovercraft will rise above.
Mothership and Women's Solution: Hey ladies! These are meant for you. Rocker and camber, carbon stringers, Magne-traction, blunt nose, protective aluminum tip covers; your ship has arrived, lets take it to the backcountry. The Mothership and Women's Solution are of identical design; however, the Mothership is a solid board, the Women's Solution is a splitboard. Sizes: 152 and 156 for both. Genius Feature: Women's specific designs are awesome; lets share the love and get everyone out shredding.
Twin Sister: Another women's specific design from Jones, this time it's meant for the resort. Twin tip design, centered stance, camber-rocker combination, carbon stringers and Magne-traction; show the boys how it's done. Sizes: 146, 149, 152. Genius Feature: This board will make you want to get creative with your style, anywhere on the mountain.
Carbon Flagship and Carbon Solution: Sometimes you just need to push that envelope! You'll appreciate the lightweight design when ascending on the Carbon Solution and reduce the pucker factor knowing your descent is that much more reliable and predictable. Genius Feature: Adding a carbon topsheet and specially placed carbon stringers to the Flagship and Solution is like adding extra bacon to a BLT; you already won, but why not step it up a notch.
