Product Info

What's that on the slopes? It's a bird! It's a plane! No it's you on the Jones Carbon Flagship Snowboard. The Jones Carbon Flagship is a stiff, hyper-responsive board that performs best at face melting speed. The Carbon Flagship features a carbon topsheet and specially positioned carbon stringers that combine to produce a light and lively board that is dangerously fast edge-to-edge. This board is designed for the expert freerider. Faster than a speeding bullet and more powerful than a locomotive, so throw that S on your chest when you're flying down the rowdiest line you can find on the Jones Carbon Flagship.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Directional RockerA hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and slight camber between the bindings. The rockered tip gives the nose added float and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot gives you added 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. "My experience is that most falls in freeriding start from the nose of the board - you either go over the bars in powder, the nose gets caught under a weird crust and tosses you, or you hit a hard tranny at the contact point of the tip and get bucked. Directional Rocker eliminates most of these falls." -Jeremy Jones

Shape

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.

Core

FSC® Wood CoreThe 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.

Laminates

Carbon QuadraxJones' signature laminate composition, Carbon Quadrax features multi-layered, multi-axis fiberglass meshed with dual-zone carbon fiber power bands. The carbon power bands in the nose and tail dampen vibrations and create supreme longitudinal and torsional snap which keeps the board stable at high speeds and on steep terrain.

Base

Sintered BaseFastest natural base material available. Durable, absorbs wax faster and retains wax longer.

Flip Flop BaseBy flip flopping the base graphic colors, P-Tex waste is drastically reduced by increasing the material yield.

Stone Ground FinishAdds texture to the base and helps to displace water, which makes your snowboard ride faster.

Edges

Mellow 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 EdgesJones 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.

Topsheet

Carbon TopsheetThe bi-directional Carbon Topsheet is the pinnacle technology behind the ultra responsive Jones carbon series boards. No other topsheet material on earth offers equal dampening, stiffness and torsional rigidity as carbon fiber. This is the secret sauce that gives the Carbon Flagship and Carbon Solution the horsepower and handling of a Formula One car.

Binding Compatibility

Jones Snowboards will accommodate 2x4 and 4x4 insert patterns.

    Beautiful board, sweet carbon top sheet, ultra-light, super stiff, holds edges like it was made with the advanced/expert rider in mind. Set-back attachments offer awesome stance adjustments. Overall, the best directional board I've ever owned.

        Definitely a board for the adv/expert rider. Stiff with lots of pop. Just makes charging down the fall line easier. This board comes to life when ridden fast. Base is very fast. Holds the ed.ge better than most. Top sheet is also very tough and scratch resistant. Really a great board
