A powerful compact board with tons of float that won't leave you hanging when the runout turns to hardpack, the Jones Hovercraft Snowboard features a new Spoon 4.0 nose shape and Speed Channel tail for 2017. Nose and tail edges are slightly beveled up for surfier turn initiation and less hookiness as you exit the turn. This is a great board for ladies who rock variable conditions and chop as hard as they do primo untracked.
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.
7 (1 = Soft, 10 = Stiff)
Spoon 4.0 Jones' most advanced 3D base contour, featuring 7 mm of spoon bevel in the nose, 4 mm in the tail, and a 2 mm deep Speed Channel between the tail edges.
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.
Swallow Tail Mild swallow tail lets the nose of the board float higher in powder.
Classic Core Full wood premium Slovenian poplar core that offers fun pop, even flex and solid durability.
Biax Fiberglass A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.
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 7000 Base Durable natural base material with added carbon for speed and good wax absorbency.
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.
Bamboo Topsheet Thin bamboo veneer layer offers even flex and sucks up chatter from uneven snow conditions.
Fusion Tech Jones exclusive production process allows traditional topsheet layer to be replaced with ultra durable epoxy layer saving weight and material.
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.
