Product Info

The legendary Jones Flagship Snowboard is regarded as one of the finest freeride boards on the planet. Designed and perfected by Jeremy Jones, this rhino chaser is as powerful as it is responsive. Known for its ability to travel at mach-speed with wall crawling edge grip, the Flagship is a game-changer featuring an ash-wood topsheet, mellow Magne-Traction, and directional rocker/camber/rocker profile. The ash-wood topsheet provides a lively but damp board feel that's big on pop and solid on landing. The Jones Flagship Snowboard is born to go fast and charge hard, so don't go crying to Jones when you get your pass pulled for straight lining down the slopes.

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

Wood TopsheetThe Wood Topsheet dampens the ride for chatter-free performance. The natural material also eliminates some plastic and lacquer which cuts down on waste and weight.

Binding Compatibility

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

Comments about Jones Flagship Snowboard 2014:

I've been snowboarding for 20 years. Grew up in and learned to ride in Vermont. I now live and ride in Montana and have been hear for the past 5 years. I'm 5'11 and 185. This is the first Wide board that I have ever ridden. I love it. It is stiffer but more predictable then the Custom X, especially at high speed. I have taken this board on every type of snow condition and surprisingly it does very well on ice and groomed snow. Wasn't expecting that from a directional pow board. I love to ride fast and mostly ride with my wife who grew up ski racing. This board loves to go fast and it will make you feel confident at speed. I read every review on line before I purchased this board and was on the fence between this and the carbon flagship. Mostly because of the bad reviews about the wood topsheet on the flagship. The past two days I have been riding and teaching my six year old to snowboard and have been on this board. The Flagship is not the best choice for slow speed riding but still did well. We went on off the lift many times and he would bang into the flagship with his little chopper and the flagship held up very well. No noticeable dings at all. The temperature has been in the 40's so snow was melting and wet. The water beaded off the board with no water marks anywhere. Very happy. Either I got a good Flagship or the topsheet issue have been addressed for 2014. Great job Jones. Definitely my favorite board in 20 years!

This table is amazing! Is very stable on groomers, and on ice magnetraction works great (It doesn´t makes miracles). In pow makes your live better. But its very heavy, you need a good legs to ride it (I ride 163w).

    This is a great board for bombing down runs or hitting those fun tree lines.
    Great carving ability.
    If you wanna go fast then definitely give it a try.
    I rented this board as a demo, liked it so much that I had to get it.

      Comments about Jones Flagship Snowboard 2014:

      Last year I bought a Hovercraft and have to say it's amazing in powder (as it should be), but I didn't feel I could go very fast back on piste due to a lack of confidence in how the tail was feeling. So, I have bought a Flagship in the Evo sale and have only used it once (at an indoor, ski/board centre that has real snow) so I can't comment on the off piste ability of the board yet, but I can say it gave me a lot of confidence, turns well, feels stable and encourages you to go faster.

      I can't say anything negative about the board at this point. The top-sheet looks great although I'm worried about dinging it.

      The only other thing I'd say is the base needed a good waxing before use. It was the same for the Hovercraft.

        Amazing sleigh!!! This is definitely a plank that you will rip it on. Also, even though the flex is a bit tough, the board carves like a dream due to the rocker tip, and the ash topsheet definitely provides some dampening when dampening can mean everything on a sketchy chute or steep bowl.

        The board does exactly what it's intended to do... can't say anything else.

        It does what it's supposed to do.

        Comments about Jones Flagship Snowboard 2014:

        I've ridden on my Flagship about 5 times now and I'm really loving it. I was looking for something that I could point down the mountain and just go, since I'm not super interested in park or riding switch.

        It's fast and carves well on groomers, glides nicely over the heavy PNW "powder", and is generally a great board. My only complaint is that the wood top sheet gets scuffed pretty easily. Perhaps it could benefit from some sanding and some sort of coating.
