Contrary to popular belief, you still do actually touch the ground when you're riding the Jones Hovercraft Snowboard (at least most of the time). Even though it feels like you're riding about a half a foot above the surface of the snow, those edges are in fact biting into the icy groomers while you float down the piste, and the contoured hull is cutting through the powder while you slither between the trees of your favorite stash. The Jones Hovercraft Snowboard is a magical volume shifted device that's been emptying quivers for seasons with its enlightening blend of nimble turns, mind-boggling float, and silky smooth flow.

Directional Rocker – A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and camber between the bindings. The rockered tip floats the board’s nose and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and response. A slightly rockered tail maintains the power and stability of a traditional board but helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.

Flex

Flex Rating  7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Forever Flex  All Jones boards are broken in using specialized machinery that mimics extreme riding use to help stabilize the flex and rocker profile of a board for it's lifetime.

Directional Flex Pattern

Shape

3D Contour Base 3.0  Freeride focused 3D Contour Base featuring a 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose and 0 - 7mm of spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point.

Blunt Nose  "How a board glides in powder, crust, corn or any snow more than an inch deep is dictated by it's 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 coming out from behind the tip 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 nose without the 'snow plow' rounded tip and it's extra swing weight." - Jeremy Jones

Progressive Sidecut  At the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually increasing the sidecut 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.

Core

FSC® Classic Core  Full wood premium poplar core that offers fun pop, even flex and solid durability.

V-Core  Slightly softer in the very center of the board for improved maneuverability and stiffer from the inserts through the tip and tail for stability and pop.

Laminates

Biax Fiberglass  A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.

Sidewalls

Recycled ABS  ABS plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. Jones improves the sustainability of their snowboards by using only recycled plastic.

Base

Sintered 8000 Base  New super durable material made from Ultra High Molecular Weight polyethylene and carbon.

Edges

Oversized Recycled Edges  All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.

Traction Tech 1.0  Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Traction Tech improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board.

Topsheet

FSC® Engineered Veneer  Composite wood veneer topsheets made from 100% FSC certified wood. Wood veneer topsheets dampen ride and absorb board chatter.

Additional Features

Factory Tuned  All Jones snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.

Wend Natural Wax  Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.

Bio Resin  All Jones boards are now built with bio-based, renewable epoxy instead of petroleum based epoxy. The raw materials used to make Super Sap Bio-Resin are co-products or waste products of other plant-based industrial processes. Producing Super Sap requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions than conventional epoxy.
