Overview
For the past 20 years, Jeremy Jones has been tailoring every detail of his Flagship model to put out some of the best freeride boards known to man. New for 2018, the Carbon Flagship has a limited edition, hand numbered serial badge and the Power Core has been re-profiled for better torsional response between the feet. This board sports the tried and true Directional Camber with Rocker profile for ripping through powder and chutes and two layers of durable Textreme Carbon Fiber for extra weight reduction and dampening at competition speeds. The super Stiff flex and Carbon Construction make for an extremely responsive ride while the Progressive Sidecut and Traction Tech keep you in complete control while carving. Staying above the pow is no chore thanks to the big Spoon 3.0 nose and tail design. The Carbon Flagship supports Jeremy's climate change organization, "Protect Our Winters" and 1% For The Planet by giving back with a more environmentally conscience build, including materials like Recycled ABS sidewalls, Flip Flop Base and Recycled Steel Edges. All Jones boards are factory tuned and waxed with Wend Natural Wax so they're ready to hit the slopes straight out of the box.

Key Features

Jones Directional Rocker - A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and slight camber between the bindings. The rocker tip gives the nose added float and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot gives you added edge hold and response. A slightly rocker tail maintains the power and stability of a traditional board but helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.

Traction Tech - Like 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.

“Traction Tech 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. Traction Tech is crucial to offset the edge drift of rocker.” - Jeremy Jones

TexTreme Carbon - Specially designed (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.

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

Carbon Construction - By combining two full bi-directional carbon topsheet layers with carbon stringers and a top secret dual-density wood core, Jones' Carbon Construction offers excellent damping, stiffness and torsional rigidity.

Base

Sintered Ultra Base - World Cup proven race base made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyurethane 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.

Details

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

Fusion Tech - Jones exclusive production process allows the traditional topsheet layer to be replaced with ultra durable epoxy layer to save weight and material.

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.

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."

Oversize Recycled Steel Edges - All Jones boards are made with oversize recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.

Great Board!

Jones Snowboards Carbon Flagship Snowboard
Barely ever shakes, handles all types of terrain, no matter how icy, bumpy or deep the snow. holds an edge better than any snowboard I've ever used. the only negative aspect i've noticed is that the front tip chatters a little when I lean forward on the board, which ends up slowing the board down significantly. However, this issue is easily solved by remaining on an edge. This is the closest to a quiver-killer I've ever used.

Great board, exactly what I was looking for. Responsive and able to charge at anything or speed I throw at it. I bought the 161 and it can still make the quick turns necessary to navigate the tight VT woods. Great in powder and groomers, grippy enough to grab the ice.

Spent a few days riding Breckenridge and A-Basin and I can't say enough positive about the board. Very stable at speed. Floats really nicely in powder. Have not ridden on ice so no report. It is a stiff board. I am 6'4" 220lbs and had no problem flexing as needed.

Smoothest ride I've ever had on a board. . . cut through ice crust and corn like a knife with no vibrations or catching. Smoked through turns I never would have even tried on my old boards. . . worth every penny!
