Jones Hovercraft Snowboard 2013

The Jones Hovercraft isn't just a snowboard, it's a new way of life. Instead of just plowing through pow, you're now able to glide over deep snow making it feel like you're floating on air. With the Blunt Nose shape you get the flotation benefits of a much longer board while the swallowtail-esque tail allows for superior control (and float) while also throwin' up huge rooster tails! The Sintered Base allows for superior wax absorption for faster, smoother rides. Change your lifestyle forever with the Jones Hovercraft snowboard.
Rocker Type
Directional Rocker - This hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern is defined by more tip rocker than 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.
Flex
Flex Rating (1 Soft – 10 Stiff) - 7, perfect for backcountry and big mountain riding
Shape
Blunt Nose - A blunt nose adds the flotation benefits of a much longer board tip without the added length or swing weight.
Core
FSC Wood Core - The wood is derived from forests that are managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations.
Full Wood Cores - Full poplar and beech wood gives the board more solid snap.
Laminates
Carbon Stringers - Improving pop and torsional stiffness and increasing the longevity of the flex profile while providing durability that makes day 100 feel just like day 1 - precise and playful
Triax Fiberglass - All Jones Snowboards include TRIAX Fiberglass, utilizing dual density fibers to strengthen high impact zone without adding weight or changing the over all flex of the board.
Base
Sintered Base - This is the fastest natural base material available due to it's durability and the ability to absorb/retain wax. Added carbon nano particles create a better glide over the snow.
Recycled Base - P-Tex scraps are recycled into new bases to reduce the carbon footprint of the board.
Edges
Mello Magne-Traction - Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Magn-Traction improves edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board.
Stronger Edges - A 250% increase in impact resistance is due to the 35% more steel Jones uses in their edges compared to the industry standard.
Topsheet
Film Topsheet - A thin piece of film replaces the traditional topsheet to eliminate plastic and reduce the weight of the board.
Additional Features
Stone Grind Finish - All boards come with a stone grind finish to ensure the proper structure of the board.
Alu Protrect - State of the art strength aluminum tip protectors: elastomer is bonded to the aluminum to absorb vibrations.
Protect Our Winters - Protect Our Winters is the environmental center point of the winter sports community, united towards a common goal of reducing climate change's effects on boarding and local mountain communities.

Specs

  • Terrain: Powder
    Powder
    Powder snowboards love powder. Often associated with freeride snowboards, powder boards sometimes feature a wider nose and a tapered narrower tail. The binding inserts, which determine the rider's stance, are often set back on a powder snowboard to help the rider float the tip of the board through the deep stuff. Powder snowboards sometimes also feature rocker, a design element where the tip (and tail) rise starts farther back on the board, which also helps the rider maintain tip float through the pow.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker shapes seek to give you both hard-carving edgehold on firm snow from camber underfoot with enhanced turnability and float in powder from the rockered tip and tail. This profile is increasingly popular for freeride boards designed primarily for soft snow.
  • Flex Rating: Stiff
    Stiff
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.
