A no-compromise tool for riders who live for speed and steeps, the Jones Carbon Flagship Snowboard is stiff and stable enough to stomp the biggest lines anywhere in the world. Jones pulls out all the stops for the Carbon Flagship, and for 2016 adds a new Ultra Base with fluoro and paraffin additives for even better glide than before. When you have to nail it in one take, or the comp's on the line, or your life just might depend on keeping it base side down, there's nothing you'd rather have on your feet than the Jones Carbon Flagship.
Directional Rocker Camber underfoot with a long, gradual tip rocker and slight tail rocker. The rockered nose helps float in powder and improves maneuverability, while camber underfoot aids edgehold. Mild tail rocker lets you choose the turn shape that fits the occasion.
Flex Rating: 10 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) Ultra stiff flex for heavy carves on the big mountain and backcountry. Stays responsive in deep powder.
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.
Hard Core Dual density core designed to eliminate chatter and provide an ultra-stiff and torsionally stable ride.
Carbon Stringers Carbon stringers add torsional stiffness for improved response and increased pop. The carbon layer keeps the flex profile consistent for the lifetime of the board.
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 Ultra Base Proven race base of UHMW Polyethylene with special Fluoro and Parafin additives. The hardest and fastest base out there.
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.
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.
Carbon Construction Carbon construction offers expert freeriders the ultimate high-speed confidence. Combining two full bi-directional carbon layers with carbon stringers and a tri-density wood core, Jones carbon construction delivers supreme dampening, stiffness and torsional rigidity.
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 Carbon Flagship Snowboard 2016:
So you wanna charge hard and don't care about changing snow conditions?? So you want to say screw you ice and crud snow I can ride regardless?? Ya this board is for you. I like going fast and I don't ride park so it's stiffness was not an issue. I'm from the Midwest so it rains, gets icy, then we get 2 ft of snow. The mellow mag takes care of that. This board rips. Enough said. If you like rails, boxes, and jibbing look elsewhere. other than that I'd recomend it to that rider who charges hard and rides a lot.
