Product Info

The stiffest board in the Jones lineup, the Jones Carbon Flagship Snowboard is the preferred deck of the go-big-or-go-home crowd. A seamless transition between rocker in the nose to camber underfoot creates a ride that floats in powder without compromising necessary edge hold in critical situations. The combination of a hardwood, bamboo and paulownia Power Core with TeXtreme carbon makes the Carbon Flagship extremely durable, powerful and stable in all snow conditions.

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.

10 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Shape

3D Contour Base 3.0Freeride focused 3D-base contours featuring an even balance of 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose and 7mm of spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point.

Directional FreerideConfidence inspiring freeride models built for maximum performance off piste and in technical terrain. All models feature shapes designed to stomp and straight line plus a directional rocker/camber profile that delivers insane float and unmatched edge grip.

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.

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

12.5mm Taper

Core

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

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

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 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 Ultra BaseNew Jones exclusive base material that sets new performance standards. Lab results and snow testing show 25% better wax absorption, better glide in warm/wet snow and better durability for grinding. Jones also doubled the amount of wax and mixed multiple wax types for a faster factory wax in a wider range of conditions.

Flip Flop Base

Edges

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.

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 the traditional topsheet layer to be replaced with ultra durable epoxy layer for saving weight and material.

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

Carbon ConstructionCarbon Series boards are the most high-performance boards Jones produces. They are designed to meet the demands of ground breaking riders who push the limits of what’s possible on a snowboard. If you ride confidently and chase serious new challenges on your snowboard, these are the boards you’re looking for.

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.

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.
