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.
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.
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.
Blunt Nose Adds float benefits without adding length or swing weight to the board
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.
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.
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.
Film Topsheet replaces the traditional plastic topsheet, eliminating plastic and reducing the weight of the board.
