From a tiny acorn the mighty oak is born, and from the mighty oak is built the topsheet of the Jones Flagship Snowboard. This stout layer of wood helps make the Flagship the trusted stompin' tool it is for thousands of expert level freeriders worldwide. Powerful, stiff and dependable when the chips are down and wimpy performance is not something you can afford, the Flagship will take you to places you've dreamed about and deliver you safely and in style.
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: 8 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) A stiff flex for handling massive lines in the backcountry. Great response in deep snow and solid enough for dropping big cliffs while having support on the landing.
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.
Master Core 2.0 Triple density hard wood core with beech stringers for added pop and durability and light poplar for weight reduction and even flex.
Carbon Quadrax Layup Multi-layered, multi-axis fiberglass meshed with dual zone carbon fiber power bands - this signature Jones construction provides supreme snap and stability on steeps and at speed.
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 9900 Base Sintered UHMW Polyethylene is the fastest and hardest material in the industry and holds wax extremely well.
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.
Oak Topsheet Burly oak with burned "no-ink" graphics.
Burned-in Graphics What's better than eco-friendly ink topsheets? No-ink topsheets, of course - Jone's burns the graphic into the topsheet for this board!
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.
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 Flagship Snowboard 2016:
This is a great stiff board for the intermediate to advanced rider. Good for deep carves and very stable at higher speeds very little flex, not a board for beginners. Would recommend for anyone that likes cruising the whole mountain, but stays away from the park.
