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 non other. What are you waiting for? Now is your chance to ride a little piece of snowboard history: the Jones
Directional Rocker - A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker than 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.
Flex Rating: 8 (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 side cut, 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.
Master Core - Full-wood triple-density core featuring hardwood stringers along the edges for substantially increased durability and protection from edge impacts.
Quadrax Carbon - Jone'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.
Recycled ABS - ABS Plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. Jones improves the sustainability of their snowboards by using only recycled plastic.
Sintered 9900 Base - The fastest, most durable and wax absorbent natural base material available.
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 - Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Magne-Traction improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of the board. "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
Stronger Edges - Jones added 35% more steel than a typical edge, what this achieves is a 250% increase in impact resistance compared to standard edges.
Wood Topsheet - Using 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.
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.
