Product Info

The Jones Aviator Snowboard has a combination of pop, speed and edge control suitable for flying high, whether that means a terrain park kicker, pillow line zipper or your favorite cat track launch pad. Featuring new Technora® fibers backed by carbon stringers, the Aviator has the snap and dampening needed for lofty riding and smooth, stable landings. Magne-Traction combined with a power camber profile and fast sintered base make the Jones Aviator Snowboard a freestyle ninja on any terrain, from park and pipe to sidecountry stashes and beyond.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Power CamberAn innovative traditional camber profile tweaked to offer the insane edge response of camber without the usual hang-ups. The camber radius tapers to flat toward the tips and the base is beveled up one degree at the edges from the contact points of the camber to the ends of the board. The base beveling releases the edges where they like to hook which balances the pop and directional stability of camber with a looser, less-catchy feel.

Flex

7(1 = Soft, 10 = Stiff)

Shape

Spoon 2.0Moderate 3D-base contours featuring an even balance of spoon bevel in the nose and spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point.

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.

Core

Power CoreTriple-density full wood core featuring hardwood bamboo stringers for added pop and durability plus paulownia for weight savings.

Laminates

Carbon StringersCarbon stringers add torsional stiffness for improved response and increased pop. A carbon layer keeps flex profiles dimensionally stable for a consistent ride for the lifetime of the board.

Technora® FiberA multi-layered aramid fiber that absorbs shock and improves pop. The fibers diamond pattern adds strength and torsional stiffness.

Triax FiberglassMulti-axis, stitched fiberglass laminate that offers a precise and responsive ride in any ­terrain or snow conditions.

Sidewalls

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

Base

Sintered 9900 BaseSintered Ultra High Molecular Weight polyethylene with carbon additives.

Flip Flop BaseBy flip flopping the base graphic colors, P-Tex waste is drastically reduced by increasing the material yield.

Edges

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

Topsheet

Eco-Plastic TopsheetBio-plastic topsheet made from Castor beans. This eco-material is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant and water/snow repellent (snow sticks less to topsheet).

Additional Features

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

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