Jones Snowboards 2017 Flagship + Carbon Flagship
This is the Flagship, or the snowboard that symbolises Jones spirit. Jeremy Jones himself has worked on and fine tuned this board for 20 years to reach this unmatched level of performance. This new 2017 version is even more into nature as it features an eco-friendly flax fibre topsheet.
What can the Jones Flagship snowboard do?
The Flaship is an iconic freeride board in Jones’ catalogue and it’s the weapon of choice of the pro rider Jeremy Jones. Designed for laying tracks on the steepest untouched slopes of the mountain and for ripping the narrowest couloirs, the Flagship is a mindblowing off-piste performer. Jump of cliffs and cornices, go wander in the woods, surf on waist-deep powder and manoeuver as if it was easy, ride on crud and difficult snow and enjoy the superior stability of the board or even carve long arcs on groomers with the Flagship. It’s a board of character with enough camber and enough rocker to blast through all terrains. The basalt fibre incorporated in the construction make the board more powerful with a better dampening while the Magne Traction technology provides unparalleled edge grip on the hardpack. The Flagship is bringing a new definition to freeride, make sure you’re ready for it.
Who is the Jones Flagship snowboard designed for?
Powerful board, fast and responsive, best suited for advanced and expert freeriders looking for the ultimate pow board. Stable, lively and precise, the Flagship and its stiff construction plows through the mountain with a ridiculous ease. The only thing it will ask in return is a pair of strong legs!

Versatile flex and response for everything from mini to mega shred.
A durable, sustainable and high performance dampening fiber
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. The Flagship, Mountain Twin, and the Solution all feature a refined Magne-Traction design where the bumps are biggest between your bindings for maximum edge control and smaller outside your feet allowing you to feather your turns without catching an edge. Jeremy's Words: Why trust your life to an edge with only two contact points when Magne-Traction gives you the grip of seven points of contact! I have gotten to the bottom of countless steep, icy faces and thanked my Magne-Traction for giving me the edge control to hold on. Magne-Traction is also a key ingredient for rockered board designs. Adding rocker to your board makes it glide more smoothly, but it makes it harder to really lock into your turns and hold a solid edge. Though Magne-Traction on full-camber boards tends to feel too locked in, once I started testing different rocker designs it was clear that Magne-Traction was crucial to offset the drift typical of rocker flex patterns.
This core combines different densities of ash wood for more strength and reactivity. The board's also snappier under your feet.
Natural Pre-Cured basalt stringers transfer power from under your feet to the tips of the board to help eliminate nose and tail chatter
Rubber edge dampening material is made with 100% recycled material.
Classic shape for a versatile use. The nose is slightly longer than the tail.
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.
Freeride focused 3D-base contours featuring an even balance of 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose and 7mm of spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point.
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.
"How a board glides in powder, crust, corn or any snow condition more than an inch deep is dictated by its front contact point and just past it. Next time you are in soft snow watch how much snow comes over the corner of the nose near the contact point. The billowing snow means you are plowing through it which is obviously slowing you down. By adding a blunt nose you get the float benefits of a much longer board tip without the added length or swing weight. " - Jeremy Jones.
