You can count on the Jones Aviator Snowboard to be comfortable in the air, but it shouldn't be limited to that. It's also a great freestyle and all mountain board with a ton of power that manages to feel loose and surfy at the tip and tail. Jones accomplishes this with their 3D Power Camber profile, which bevels the edge from the contact points out to the ends of the board. If you've been yearning to stop worrying about your gear and want to concentrate on letting your own imagination set the limits, book a passage on the Jones Aviator this season and enjoy clear skies ahead.
3D Power Camber A positive camber profile that offers the edge response of camber without the usual hangups. The base is beveled up from contact points to the ends of the board, releasing the edges where they tend to hook and creating a looser feel.
Flex Rating: 7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) Medium-stiff flex for immediate response and loads of control. Less forgiving but is ready to damage rails, kickers, and anything else you toss at it. Well-rounded flex for all-mountain excursions.
Twin Directional Symmetrical tip and tail dimensions with a 20 mm setback for the best balanced freestyle performance in the land
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
Progressive Sidecut At the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually decreasing the side cut radius towards the contact point delivers smoother turn initiation and exit as the edge tracks in and out of the snow with a less abrupt transition.
Power Core 2.0 Triple density full wood core with beech stringers along the edges for power and durability.
Carbon Triax Fiberglass Multi-layered triax fiberglass meshed with carbon fiber power bands to dampen vibration and add stability.
Fiberglass Reinforcement A new lightweight layer of fiberglass not only adds to the pop in the nose and tail of the board but improves the longevity of the flex profile.
Recycled ABS Sidewalls Jones is in it for the long haul, and with sustainability in mind they use only recycled plastic for their sidewalls.
Sintered 9900 Base Sintered UHMW Polyethylene is the fastest and hardest material in the industry and holds wax extremely well.
Belt Ground Finish Smooth a flat right from the factory.
Die-Cut Base Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
Mellow Magne-Traction™ A tiny wave in the edge under your feet results in a catch-free ride with bomber edgehold on any snow surface. "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.
Oversized Recycled Edges Recycled, thicker steel reinforces the snowboard's edges to give you exceptional impact resistance and improved production sustainability.
Film Topsheet New film topsheet adds to consistent response and drops weight at the same time.
Adapted from a series of watercolor paintings by Lake Tahoe artist Chris Crossen.
Factory Tuned Factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can charge from run one without worrying about hookiness.
One Ball Jay BIO Wax Factory waxed and ready to shred right out of the shop with One Ball Jay BIO wax.
Wrap Tip Construction Full wood core to the tip with the ABS sidewall wrapping all the way around the tip for added response and durability.

Comments about Jones Aviator Snowboard 2016:
Great tech in the board and rides great, but the board graphics were not even close to what is shown in the picture...at least for the 160/blue color scheme. Was pretty disappointed with the misrepresentation.
