Jones Hovercraft Splitboard - Blem 2012

Powder hunting and line poaching, the Jones Hovercraft Spliboard does it all. Packing the volume of an old-school long board into a nimble all-mountain charger, the Hovercraft is a phenomenon that shatters the stereotypes of your average “pow” board. Blower, crud or crust are no match for the Hovercraft as it floats through it all without sacrificing maneuverability in mixed conditions. The Hovercraft features a blunt nose and directional rocker, with a stiff tail, so you can party in the pow and still remain stable on the hardpack. The addition of the Hovercraft Splitboard to the Jones line-up has cemented this board design to Jeremy's feet. Nothing beats fresh tracks from first chair to the afternoon backcountry lap riding the same board you know and love.
Rocker Type
Directional Rocker - Shape is a hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern 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 initiating turns and landing switch.
Flex
The best of both worlds, the Hovercraft offers a fun and playful flex that kills in the in pow, with a stiffer tail that offers the control you need on the hardpack.
Shape
Blunt Nose - Adds float benefits without adding length or swing weight to the board
Core
FSC Approved Full Wood Core - The wood comes from forests that are managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of all generations. The core is a full poplar and beech wood core that offers a solid snap.
Base
Flip Flop base means that base graphic colors are flip flopped, drastically reducing P-Tex waste and increasing the material yield. Base color will vary from board to board and may not reflect what is seen in the image featured.
Sintered Base is made of the fastest natural base material available. The base is durable, absorbs wax faster and retains wax longer.
Edges
Mellow Magne-Traction - This improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of the board. A key ingredient for rockered boards, Magne-Traction allows it to glide more smoothly.
Topsheet
Film Topsheet replaces the traditional plastic topsheet, eliminating plastic and reducing the weight of the board.

Specs

  • Terrain: Splitboarding
    Splitboarding
    A splitboard snowboard is built specifically for the backcountry rider. Splitboards are designed to break down into two separate halves for touring and uphill travel (with climbing skins). Special bindings are required as well. Once you've reached the top of the terrain feature, you reconnect your splitboard for the ride back downhill. However, it's important to note that you will need appropriate backcountry tools, knowledge of the backcountry, weather and snow conditions and climbing skins to safely take advantage of the freedom of a splitboard. 
  • 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.
