Product Info

A king among powder ready splitboards, the Jones Hovercraft Splitboard features quality construction that makes every trail your playground. Made with Jones Directional Rocker profile, the Jones Hovercraft Splitboard has a rockered nose that floats effortlessly through every condition while the camber under foot offers the power and board feel that longtime riders crave. A volume-shifted design allows you to size down from your usual snowboard length, making your climb easier and your way back down a total blast while keeping the superior surfy ride you want for the softer, fresher 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.

Flex

7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

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.

Core

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

Laminates

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

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

Sidewalls

Recycled Rounded ABSNew rounded sidewall finish that improves board durability by protecting topsheet from chipping. Available on all splitboards and surf series models.

Base

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

Flip Flop Base

Edges

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

Inside Traction Tech 2.0Inner edge Traction Tech improves splitboard edge grip on ascent. Three side cut "bumps" on each side of your binding keep you locked in on icy skin tracks no matter which way you are traversing.

Outside Traction Tech 2.0Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Traction Tech improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board.

Topsheet

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

Additional Features

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 ClipsJones Splitboards feature Karakoram K-Clips plus tip and tail hooks. Adjustable tension K-Clips increase board torsional stiffness.

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.

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 coproducts or waste products of other plant-based industrial processes. Producing Super Sap requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions than conventional epoxy.
