This backcountry line bomber has the true explorer in mind with a hybrid rocker/camber setup. Camber underfoot for power, a large section of rocker at the nose for loft, and a bit of rocker at the back to keep you from catching edge on those monster carves. It is designed for high speed excursions that demand responsiveness. This year Jones Snowboards updated their carbon fiber formula and their new ISOCORE to save weight while hardwood beech stringers were added along the edges for increased durability. The 2016-2017 model also feature a notch into the tail of both skis that makes it significantly easier to secure the skin. However, the biggest advancement has to be the Bolt-less bridge. With this feature, you no longer have bolts through the board. This, combined with the upgraded Karakoram Ultra Clip, creates a notably tighter connection between the skis. Better lock, responsiveness, and stability all add to the value of this backcountry beast.

    Super light and stiff!

    Jones Snowboards Carbon Solution Splitboard
    The way I see it, is that this design, especially the "cam rock" evolved from Nidecker's Mega light and ultra light. I still have those "old" Nideckers, and STILL ride those, actually, as they are SO light and the cam rock with Nidecker's old "ultimate grip" which looks more like a threatening steak knife! It rides like that, too! I LOVE that design, and it certainly has reached some sort of pinnacle, even though there are many camber variations now.

    Cam rock ROCKS. Like a nice sports car. I had always wanted to split the old Mega light, since it has a wood core, but it is extremely thin. The resulting deck would no doubt be too flexible.

    This Jones design also put mange-traction on the INNER edges of the skis, and when you are side-stepping up an nice icy face are MUCH better to have than not.

    My Lib Tech C-2 T.Rice has no need for mange traction on the inner edges, as the C-2 is mostly for deep powder, even though it can rock groomers, and even parks. (not necessarily recommended for the park!)

    BUT, that's why I would chose the Jones solution for other B/C adventures that might have icy terrain. The Solution has the most control I could ask for when landing big airs and it's over all KILLER carve and effortless transfer. That it turns on a dime like that and remains in control, especially because of the mange-traction, is the best feature of the ride, in my opinion.

    I was stoked to buy this one from Tactics last year on sale. I can't say I'd be thrilled obout the full price, and I would hold out for another sale if I were you, but you still won't see any more than $150 reduced from this deck.

    Slap a set of Karakoram Carbon bindings on this, (I have 3 pairs of those), and you will be grinning ear to ear, and everyone will be JEALOUS (guaranteed!) The lightweight combo of the Carbon Jones Solution, and the Karakoram Carbon bindings CANNOT be beat for weight, and the Carbon Jones is A LOT STIFFER than the non-carbon. (yes, I own a non-carbon, and yes, it rides MUCH differently than the Carbon).

    I only really care to take this expensive set up out in deep powder and backcountry adventures when the snow is worthy, which sure has NOT been for a while…. How about some SNOW?
