Snowboard

Jones Hovercraft Snowboard 2020

It's almost like you're not even touching the ground, dude! With performance so good you might want to sell your car and just snowboard everywhere, the Jones Hovercraft Snowboard is the quiver-emptying deck for seasoned riders who want a nimble freeride board that can do everything. Rail a deep turn on hardpack and ice or mash a high speed line through the steep and deep, the Jones Hovercraft Snowboard will just laugh at the challenge.

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

7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Shape

3D Contour Base 4.0Jones' 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 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

FSC® Classic CoreFull wood premium poplar core that offers fun pop, even flex and solid durability.

V-CoreSlightly softer in the very center of the board for improved maneuverability and stiffer from the inserts through the tip and tail for stability and pop.

Laminates

Biax FiberglassA dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.

Sidewalls

Recycled ABSABS plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. Jones improves the sustainability of their snowboards by using only recycled plastic.

Base

Sintered 7000 BaseDurable natural base material with added ­carbon for speed and good wax absorbency.

Edges

Oversized Recycled EdgesAll Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.

Traction Tech 3.0Traction Tech 3.0 features three bumps per edge (front binding, board center, back binding). The middle bump is slightly bigger than the outside bumps for better grip.

Topsheet

FSC® Engineered VeneerComposite wood veneer topsheets made from 100% FSC certified wood. Wood veneer topsheets dampen ride and absorb board chatter.

Additional Features

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

Super Sap Bio ResinAll Jones boards are now built with bio-based, renewable epoxy instead of petroleum based epoxy. The raw materials used to make Super Sap Bio-Resin are co-products or waste products of other plant-based industrial processes. Producing Super Sap requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions than conventional epoxy.

Jones Apollo Snowboard Bindings 2020

The Jones Apollo Snowboard Bindings are premium freeride bindings built for riders who need maximum response in technical terrain. What sets these binders apart from all others on the market is the Carbon Flax Highback, which blends the ECO-performance of flax with the lightweight torsional stiffness of carbon. With NOW Skate Tech throughout, the Apollo is responsive to even the most minute movements. Set them up in Surf mode or rock them as freeride killers -- the Apollo is ready to go.

Baseplate

NOW Skate TechThe components of the NOW Skate Tech design mimic the function of a skateboard truck. The "Hanger" acts as a lever that transfers energy input from the straps to the "Bushings" and onto the board edges.

KingpinCreates a fulcrum that magnifies edge to edge energy transfer through leverage. Made from stainless steel with 4mm allen key hardware.

Hanger 2.0 Nylon Reinforced with 30% FiberglassCreates a lever that pivots on the Kingpin. Transfers energy input from straps to bushings onto board edges. Baseless design allows for even board flex.

Swappable Bushings (Soft and Hard Bushings Included)Jones bindings offer customizable dampening and response by switching between Surf Mode and Freeride Mode. Surf Mode lets you tweak harder, while Freeride Mode keeps you locked in for maximum response. Switch modes by changing the bushings from soft (Surf Mode) to hard (Freeride Mode) and adjusting the Flip-It ankle straps.
