When your day job consists of flying fighter jets and racing cars, then you're going to want a board that can match your need for speed. The Jones
Aviator Snowboard is a high-performance directional freestyle board built for speed and flight. The Aviator features a 3D Power Camber profile that provides the insane edge response of camber without the usual hang-ups. From the contact points of the camber to the end of the board, the base is beveled up 2 degrees at the edges providing a looser, less-catchy feel. Go from dropping cliffs, getting airborne on park jumps, and flying down killer lines with style and confidence all on the Jones
3D Power Camber - An innovative traditional camber profile tweaked to offer the insane edge response of camber without the usual hang-ups. The board profile crosses over into the third dimension as the base is beveled up 2 degrees at the edges from the contact points of the camber to the ends of the board. The base beveling releases the edges where they like to hook which balances the pop and directional stability of camber with a looser, less-catchy feel.
Blunt Nose - "How a board glides in powder, crust, corn, or any snow condition more then 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.
FSC® Wood Core - The FSC® wood cores come from forests that are managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations. ALL Jones Snowboard Cores are FSC®.
Hard Core (Poplar / Beech) - Jones' signature core, the Hard Core, is a hybrid wood core designed for the ultimate pop, power transfer and durability. Featherweight Poplar stringers in the middle of the core are framed with bulletproof Beech stringers under the edges to produce a core that combines the snappy, even flex of Poplar with the damp responsive benefits of Beech. Framing the sides of the core in the Beech Hardwood creates unparalleled energy transfer to your edge and helps protect the board from harsh side impacts.
Triax - This lightweight, multi axis, stitched fiberglass laminate provides torsional stiffness, pop and response for precise controlled riding in a multitude of terrain and snow conditions.
Carbon Stringers - Carbon stringers are added to select models to improve pop and torsional stiffness and increase the longevity of the flex profile. This lightweight layer helps the board perform the same on day 100 as it did on day one - precise and playful.
Flip Flop Base - By flip flopping the base graphic colors, P-Tex waste is drastically reduced by increasing the material yield.
Stone Ground Finish - Adds texture to the base and helps to displace water, which makes your snowboard ride faster.
Sintered Base - Fastest natural base material available. Durable, absorbs wax faster and retains wax longer.
Mellow Magne-Traction™ - Magne-Traction™ maximizes your edge hold between your feet so you have better control and stability even on the iciest slopes. Magne-Traction™ varies in the serration depending on the board; regardless it will deliver a catch free ride any day. "Magne-Traction™ is 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. Magne-Traction™ is crucial to offset the drift typical of rocker flex patterns." - Jeremy Jones.
Stronger Edges - Jones added 35% more steel than a typical edge. What this achieves is a 250% increase in impact resistance compared to other edges offered on the market today.
Film Topsheet - A thin piece of film replaces the traditional plastic topsheet. This eliminates plastic and reduces the weight of the board.
Jones Snowboards will accommodate 2x4 and 4x4 insert patterns.
