An expert-level tool for big mountain freeriding of consequence and comp use, the Jones Carbon Flagship Snowboard is the stiff and powerful freeride board of choice in the quest for the world's heaviest footy. Built to inspire confidence at the highest speeds and through the longest airs, the Carbon Flagship uses Jones new TeXtreme Carbon construction with the cream-of-the-carbon-crop 12k un-crimped carbon fiber over a triple density Power Core. This board rates at a 10 of 10 on the stiffness scale, so bring your A-game and get ready to rumble.
Directional Rocker A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and camber between the bindings. The rockered tip floats the board’s nose and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot provides 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.
10 (1 = Soft, 10 = Stiff)
Spoon 3.0 Freeride focused 3D-base contours featuring an even balance of spoon bevel in the nose and spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point.
Blunt Nose "How a board glides in powder, crust, corn or any snow more than an inch deep is dictated by it's 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 coming out from behind the tip 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 nose without the 'snow plow' rounded tip and it's extra 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 increasing the sidecut 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 Triple-density full wood core featuring hardwood bamboo stringers for added pop and durability plus paulownia for weight savings.
TeXtreme Carbon A 12K, non-crimp carbon weave used in state-of-the-art applications like America's Cup hulls and high end road bikes, TeXtreme saves 20-30% in weight over conventional carbon fiber.
Fiberglass Reinforcement Fiberglass layer improve pop in nose and tail plus increases the longevity of the flex profile. This lightweight layer helps the board perform the same on day 100 as it did on day one - precise and playful.
Recycled Rubber Dampening material is made of 100% recycled rubber.
Recycled ABS Sidewalls ABS plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. We improve the sustainability of our snowboards by using only recycled plastic.
Sintered Ultra Base World Cup proven race base made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) modified with special Fluoro and Paraffin based additives for better glide and increased durability. ULTRA base is harder and faster than any other sintered base.
Flip Flop Base By flip flopping the base graphic colors, P-Tex waste is drastically reduced by increasing the material yield.
Mellow Magne-Traction™ Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Magne-Traction improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board. "Magne-Traction is a critical feature for rockered boards. Rocker improves glide in mixed conditions, but the decreased edge contact makes it harder to really lock into your turns and hold a solid edge. Magne-Traction is crucial to offset the edge drift of rocker." - Jeremy Jones
Oversized Recycled Edges All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
Fusion Tech Jones exclusive production process allows traditional topsheet layer to be replaced with ultra durable epoxy layer saving weight and material.
Carbon Construction The Carbon Series are the most high performance boards we produce. They are designed to meet the demands of ground breaking riders who push the limits of what’s possible on a snowboard. If you ride confidently and chase serious new challenges on your snowboard, these are the boards you’re looking for.
Factory Tuned All Jones snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
Wend Natural Wax Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
