Product Info

Take the Jones Hovercraft, split it in half and infuse it with the most cutting edge materials in snowboard design and you get the Jones Ultracraft Splitboard. Sporting the same 2-layer, fiberglass reinforced TeXtreme carbon found in racing yachts and time trial bikes, the Ultracraft is one of the lightest and most powerful splits in the game. A bolt-less bridge and Karakoram hardware make setup and transitions easy, while the Ultracraft's stubby swallow tail, blunt nose and Sintered Ultra base make it a fall line missile you can count on at speed.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Directional RockerA 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.

Flex

Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)7

Shape

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 SidecutAt 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 TailMild swallow tail lets the nose of the board float higher in powder.

Core

Ultra ISO CoreTriple-density core featuring stringers of ISOCORE - a foam/fiberglass composite that's as stiff as any wood but 15% lighter. Hardwood beech stringers are positioned along the edges for added durability.

Laminates

2x TeXtreme® CarbonSpecially designed carbon fiber that is podium proven in the America's Cup and Tour De France. TeXtreme achieves a weight savings of about 20-30% compared to conventional carbon fiber.

Fiberglass ReinforcementFiberglass layers improve pop in the tip and tail, and increases the longevity of the flex profile. This lightweight layer helps the board perform the same on day 100 as it did on day one - precise and playful.

Stainless Steel ReinforcementStainless steel plates are embedded into the nose and tail for improved board tip durability.

Sidewalls

Recycled ABS SidewallsABS plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. We improve the sustainability of our snowboards by using only recycled plastic.

Base

Sintered Ultra BaseWorld Cup proven race base made from ­Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) modified with special Fluoro and Paraffin based additives for better glide and increased durability. ULTRA base is harder and faster than any other sintered base.

Edges

Inner and Outer Mellow Magne-TractionLike 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 EdgesAll Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.

Topsheet

Fusion TechJones exclusive production process allows traditional topsheet layer to be replaced with ultra durable epoxy layer saving weight and material.

Additional Features

Ultra ConstructionUltra Construction is the redefinition of what it takes to build a snowboard. Jones has tested every inch of the board to precisely position materials exactly where they are needed while eliminating all excess materials. Combining these innovative construction techniques with superlight wood cores and carbon fiber deliver revolutionary results. Jones Ultra boards are the lightest, yet most durable snowboards on earth.

Quick Tension TailAll Jones splitboards (except Discovery Split) now feature a notch cut into the tail of both skis that allows the Quick Tension Tail Clip fastener to simply slide into the notch and secure the skin.

Karakoram Ultra ClipsNew ULTRA clips are lower profile, stronger and increase compression between board halves.

Bolt-Less BridgeEliminates split clip attachment hardware from the base of the board by re-profiling the wood core at the clips. The wood core under the clips is thicker providing better torsional stiffness and a more powerful connection at the split clips.

Factory TunedAll Jones snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.

Wend Natural WaxJones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
