Overview
This classic Jones board, with plenty of camber under foot and rocker on the nose and tail, is a true carving machine. It'll grip whatever turn you dig into with a long tapered contact edge and mellow Magne-Traction, even if you are dealing with some packed ice. With a bit of rocker in the front you won't need the traditional snow-shovel tip to keep above the fresh powder. Something new to the 2017 model is its Eco-Plastic topsheet. It's ultra lightweight, scratch resistant, snow repellent, and a more sustainable material that speaks of Jones Snowboards commitment to being an outdoor industry leader in the fight against climate change.

Ride Style

All Mountain - Whether you're doing hot laps, tree runs, ripping around or just cruising the park, this board's versatility should allow you to shred virtually anywhere on the mountain in whatever condition.

Slash a turn, tweak a grab, bonk a tree, ollie the cat track and be sure to high five your friends before doing it all over again.

Flex Rating

SoftStiff - Mid-Stiff Flex - good stability, pop, somewhat aggressive response and control. Also ideal for slightly bigger riders.

Shape

Directional Twin - Directional Twin snowboards will have a symmetrical shape, yet can have either a slightly set back stance or slightly stiffer tail depending on the construction.

Either way, a Directional Twin is designed for freestyle-influenced park or all-mountain riders who rock their normal stance most of the time but still like to hit things switch from time to time.

All the same fun as a regular twin but with a little more oomph in the tail for snapping off lips and setting down the landing gear.

Camber Profile

Camber Dominant - A predominately cambered board with a mix of camber profiles. Camber zones offers pop and stability. Rocker offers a little more float for powder along with playfulness for jibbing, while flat zones are a happy medium between camber and rocker.

*Note: profile image exaggerated for visual perspective, please see this brand's specific camber tech for more details

Sidecut/Edge Control

Progressive Sidecut - Delivers smoother turn initiation and exit as the edge tracks in and out of the snow with a less abrupt transition.

Core

Power Core - Triple density full wood core featuring hard wood bamboo stringers for added pop and durability plus paulownia for a lighter weight.

Laminates

Triax Fiberglass - This lightweight, multi-axis, stitched fiberglass laminate provides torsional stiffness, pop and response for a precise controlled ride in a multitude of terrain and snow conditions.

Carbon Stringers - Carbon stringers are added to select models to improve pop, torsional stiffness and increase the longevity of the flex profile. This lightweight layer helps the board perform the same on day 100 as it did on day one. Precise and playful.

Fiberglass Reinforcement - A fiberglass layer improves pop in the nose and tail while increasing the longevity of the flex profile. This lightweight layer helps the board perform the same on day 100 as it did on day one - precise and playful.

Base/Speed

Sintered 9900 Base - Made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and Carbon. This ultra-fast base is easy to repair and fast.

Details

Blunt Nose = Float - How a board glides in powder, crust, corn or any snow condition more than an inch deep is dictated by its 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 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 board tip without the added length or swing weight.

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

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

Eco-Plastic Topsheet - Bio plastic topsheet made from Castor beans. This eco-material is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant and water/snow repellent, which means less obnoxious snow to kick off.

Supports "Protect Our Winters" - Protect Our Winters (POW) was started in 2007 by pro snowboarder Jeremy Jones, owner of Jones Snowboards, who witnessed first-hand the impact of climate change on North America's mountains.

After being turned away from areas that had once been ride-able and seeing resorts closed due to lack of snow, Jones decided to take action by founding POW, whose mission is to engage and mobilize winter sports communities to educate others about the growing problem of climate change and its negative effects on the environment.

1% For The Planet - Jones Snowboards has committed to contribute at least one percent of their annual sales to environmental causes. The mission of 1% for the Planet is to "build, support and activate an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet."

Super stuff. Pretty good pop. Does really well if you like going fast. Can be hard to control in fresh powder in the trees. Overall happy with the purchase over my old burton board (beginner/intermediate board)
