Product Info

Batten down the hatches and cinch up your pack because the Jones Carbon Flagship Snowboard is ready to ride! Not for the faint of heart, this board is as stiff as they come and features a multi-layer TeXtreme carbon construction capable of mach speeds with minimal chatter. Thanks to a re-worked power core, the Carbon Flagship also has more response and pop between the bindings. Spoon 3.0 shaping at the tip and tail combines with rockered tips and a cambered mid-section for superior float and smooth transitions with the edgehold and pop to set spins. If you want the ultimate freeride weapon for comp use or mad footy stackin', the Jones Carbon Flagship Snowboard crushes all.

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

10(1 = Soft, 10 = Stiff)

Shape

Spoon 3.0Freeride focused 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.

Re-Profiled Power CoreMore torsional stiffness between the feet.

Laminates

2x TeXtreme® CarbonSpecially designed carbon fiber (12k non crimp fabric) 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.

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 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.

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

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