Product Info

The one and only Jones Flagship Snowboard is the foundation of Jones Snowboards. Jeremy Jones has spent the past two decades perfecting this freeride machine. A board that is worthy of decades worth of Jeremy Jones' scrutiny and craftsmanship must be one killer board. The Flagship is revered as one of the most confidence inspiring snowboards on the planet. A powerful and responsive construction combo-ed with Mellow Magne-Traction, a Blunt Nose and Directional Rocker come together to create a truly sensational ride. The wood topsheet on this board delivers a lively but damp board feel that pops and stomps like no other. What are you waiting for? Now is your chance to ride a little piece of snowboard history: the Jones Flagship Snowboard.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Directional RockerJones' 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

Flex Rating: 8 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)This snowboard has a stiff flex rating; indicating it will provide you with an aggressive, responsive and fast ride. Good for charging groomers, deep powder, slalom courses, and even jumps. Stiff snowboards won’t wash out on you easily because they are responsive, have insane turning abilities, and will remain stable.

Shape

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 SidecutAt 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.

Core

Master CoreJones' full wood, triple density core construction. The Master Core features hardwood stringers that are placed edges and protection from hard impacts and substantially increases the snowboards durability.

Laminates

Quadrax CarbonJone's signature laminate composition, Carbon Quadrax features multi-layered, multi-axis fiberglass meshed with dual-zone carbon fiber power bands. Carbon power bands offer supreme snap and stability on steep terrain and at speed.

Sidewalls

Recycled ABS SidewallsPlastic is one of the evils commonly used in snowboard production. Jones improved the sustainability of their snowboards by using only recycled plastic.

Base

Sintered 9900The 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 FinishFor 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 BaseBase color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.

Edges

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.

Recycled Stronger EdgesRecycled steel reinforces the snowboard's edges to give you exceptional impact resistance.

Topsheet

Wood TopsheetUsing wood for a topsheet dampens the ride and offers chatter-free performance. The natural material also eliminates some plastic and lacquer which improves board sustainability.

Additional Features

Factory TunedAll 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.

    Comments about Jones Flagship Snowboard 2015:

    Initial impressions after 2 days: awesome. I was looking for a board that was directional and would give me stability, edge hold, and maneuverability, and the Flagship has delivered. So far, it's seen ice, crud, fun soft spring snow, and not so fun sticky soft spring snow. Other than being slightly grabby in the stickier snow (a good wax job helped minimize this), the flagship has been everything I was hoping it would be. (I'm 6'4"/198 and ride a 162W Flagship, Burton Diodes and Ride Insanos.)

      Comments about Jones Flagship Snowboard 2015:

      I purchased the Jones Flagship as a "do it all" board so I could travel with one board that would handle all situations. When I can encounter any sort of condition, from hardpack and groomers to feet of pow.

      I have been riding for 25 years and spend most of my time in glades, double blacks and anything steep. If there's fresh snow, that's my first target.

      I rode the Flagship while in Vail for three days. The first two days were mostly untracked pow. I slid my bindings back and rode lightly, keeping the board high in the snow. It rode beautifully and floated without keeping my weight back, saving me from the dreaded rear leg burn. when I rode groomers back to the lift, it laid out nice fat carves in hard snow, not losing an edge, I credit the mellow Magnetraction here.

      If you are looking for a "do it all" board that you can take anywhere and be confident that it will perform well, regardless of the conditions, this is your board.

          Comments about Jones Flagship Snowboard 2015:

          They used to call me 'The Yeti' because of my size and my white snow jacket...

          Now they call me that for entirely different reasons. You remember that ski game on your dads old Windows desktop? the one where the Yeti comes from nowhere, at lightning speed and eats your face?!

          That's me now.

          The tech behind this board is phenomenal, but sometimes that can mean nothing once you're out there, middle of nowhere, waist deep in pow.

          This board rides like a dream, handles like a porsche and bombs groomers like a freight train.

          You will not be disappointed.
