Last name Ever, first name Greatest, the Jones Carbon Flagship Snowboard ain't nothin' to play with. This seriously stiff, competition-ready freeride board can crush the mountain like no other. Power, power, and more power are the three main ingredients that went into making this board. In addition, a carbon topsheet and specially designed carbon stringers combine to produce a light and lively board that's blazing fast edge-to-edge, chatter-free even at mach speeds, and stiff enough to withstand hundred foot booters. Strap into this mountain slaying machine and get ready for the ride of your life!
Directional Rocker Jones' directional rocker snowboards have a defined flex pattern with more rocker in the nose than the tail and camber between the bindings. Having a rockered nose will help you float in deep snow and improve maneuverability. The camber underfoot provides exceptional edge hold and response. Subtle rocker near the tail maintains power and stability as it aids your turns.
Flex rating: 10 (1 softest - 10 stiffest)
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 wood core designed for eliminating board chatter and providing an ultra-stiff and torsionally stable ride.
Carbon Construction The secret sauce that gives the Carbon series the horsepower and handling of a Formula One car. By combining two full bi-directional carbon topsheet layers with carbon stringers and a top secret dual-density wood core. Jones' Carbon Construction offers unmatched dampening, stiffness and torsional rigidity.
Recycled ABS Sidewalls Plastic is one of the evils commonly used in snowboard production. Jones improved the sustainability of their snowboards by using only recycled plastic.
Sintered 9900 The fastest, most durable and wax absorbent natural base material available. Sintered bases are super-fast. Polyethylene pellets are forced together under extremely high pressure. The result is a singular piece of connected pellets with tiny pores across the entire base. Sintered bases absorb hot wax really well.
Stone Ground Finish For unmatched glide and wax adhesion, Jones finishes the bases of their boards with a stone ground structure pattern that's race ready in all snow conditions.
Die-cut Base Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
Mellow Magne-Traction™ Maximizes your edge hold between your feet so you have better control and stability even on the iciest slopes. Magne-Traction™ varies in the serration depending on the board; regardless it will deliver a catch-free ride any day. "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.
Film Topsheet Film topsheets provide the stiffness and impact resistance of a normal topsheet while significantly reducing weight by decreasing the thickness of the topsheet material.
Factory Tuned All Jones Snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail plus waxed with OneBallJay Bio Wax so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
