The board works like an excellent allrounder with tons of qualities. It floats naturally on deep powder and carves efficiently on the hardpack. It manoeuvers with precision when the terrain gets technical and difficult and it basically does anything you want. Top this up with Jones superior construction and style and you get a board you'll never want to leave behind!

Snowboard detailed program
Bi-ax laminates over and under the wood core include fibreglass layers aligned in two directions at 45 degrees to the edges. This creates an easy and forgiving flex, which allows you to really feel the terrain.
Full-wood core that offers fun pop, even flex and solid durability.
Classic shape for a versatile use. The nose is slightly longer than the tail.
Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Magne-Traction improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board. “Magne-Traction is a critical feature for rockered boards. Rocker improves glide in mixed conditions, but the decreased edge contact makes it harder to really lock into your turns and hold a solid edge. Magne-Traction is crucial to offset the edge drift of rocker
At the far ends of the side cut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually decreassing the side cut radius towards the contact point delivers smoother turn initiation and exit as the edge tracks in and out of the snow with a less abrupt transition.
A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker than tail rocker and slight camber between the bindings. The rockered tip gives the nose added float and improves manoeuvrability while the camber underfoot gives you added edge hold and response. A slightly rockered tail maintains the power and stablity of a traditional board, but helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.
All Jones Snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail plus waxed with OneBallJay Bio wax so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
A thin piece of film replaces the traditional plastic top sheet. This eliminates plastic and reduces the eight of the boards.
Jones Splitboards feature Karakoram K-clips plus tip and tail hooks. Adjustable tension K-clips increase board torsional stiffness.
Built-in climbing skin tension system using pre-cut notch that eliminates the need for a traditional skin tail clip
Wastes of P-tex are dramatically reduced, enhancing material performance.
Durable natural base material with added carbon for speed and good wax absorbency.
Stainless steel plates are embedded into the nose and tail for improved board tip durability
Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with Wend natural wax
