Jones Hovercraft Snowboard 2015

Jones Shop all Jones
Pow slaying machines come in all shapes and sizes, but the Jones Hovercraft Snowboard stands out from the rest as a tried and true shape and design that has earned it a cult following of serious deep snow riders across the globe. Nimble handling and incredible float combine to create a board that handles blow, crud or crust with equal finesse. The blunt nose and directional rocker will have you flying through the soft stuff, while mellow Magne-Traction locks you in when the going gets a little tracked out and icy. Float, fly, and run it out with the Jones Hovercraft Snowboard. This plank won't disappoint.
Rocker Type
Directional Rocker - Jones' 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.
 
Hover 3D Tail - The last several centimeters of the solid Hovercraft tail edges are beveled up one degree to increase edge maneuverability and loosen up the tail.
Flex
Flex Rating: 7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - This snowboard has a mid-stiff flex rating that will provide you with a predictable, responsive and fast ride. This snowboard is good for the entire mountain; slalom courses, powder, groomers, and kickers. Loaded with turning abilities, strong edge hold and tons of preloaded pop you’re in for a sweet ride.
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 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.
Core
Classic Core - Jones' full wood, multi-density core construction. The Classic Core features hardwood that adds protection from impacts and substantially increases the snowboards durability.
Laminates
Biax - Biax laminate consists of fiberglass that is braided in two directions. The fibers are braided vertically at 90 degrees. This ensures a torsional flex that is more evenly distributed throughout the snowboard. For you, this translates to a snowboard that is easy to handle and jib friendly.
Carbon Stringers - Carbon stringers add torsional stiffness for improved response and increased pop. Carbon layer keeps flex profile dimensionally stable for a consistent ride for the lifetime of the board.
Sidewalls
Recycled ABS Sidewalls - Plastic is one of the evils commonly used in snowboard production. Jones improved the sustainability of their snowboards by using only recycled plastic.
Base
Sintered 7200 - 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.
Die-cut Base - Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
3D 1˚ Bevel Base
Edges
Mellow Magne-Traction™ - 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 Edges - Jones adds more recycled steel to their reinforced edges. In exchange, you are granted with exceptional impact resistance.
Topsheet
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.
Additional Features
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.
Karakoram Hardware - All Jones Splitboards feature Karakoram K-clips plus tip and tail hooks.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freeride, Powder
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain snowboards are designed for exploring the whole mountain. They are your go-to for a snowboard that will do anything. They feel at home on groomers, powder, park runs and almost anything in between. The vast majority of snowboarders choose all-mountain boards for their great versatility. If you’re just getting started or unsure of exactly what you need, an all-mountain snowboard is a great choice.
    Freeride
    Freeride snowboards are designed for the rider that spends most of the day off groomed runs and in backcountry terrain. They typically have a stiffer flex and are ridden in longer sizes than freestyle snowboards. Freeride snowboards often feature a directional shape that is designed to perform optimally in one direction.
    Powder
    Powder snowboards love powder. Often associated with freeride snowboards, powder boards sometimes feature a wider nose and a tapered narrower tail. The binding inserts, which determine the rider's stance, are often set back on a powder snowboard to help the rider float the tip of the board through the deep stuff. Powder snowboards sometimes also feature rocker, a design element where the tip (and tail) rise starts farther back on the board, which also helps the rider maintain tip float through the pow.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber
    This features rocker in the nose and a camber extending under the feet through the tail. It is Built for riders that demand superior grip, stability, and responsive performance, but who still want to be able to float in powder.
  • Shape: Directional
  • Flex Rating: Stiff
    Stiff
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.
  • Core/Laminates: Carbon, Composite, Wood
