Intended for advanced to expert skill levels, this powerful directional board is meant to fast and stable. The directional flex pattern and larger surface area work with the 3D Contour Base 4.0 for float and make it all-terrain ready. An added speed channel at the back offers better glide. For this season, the Hovercraft has an updated FSC™ engineered topsheet that speaks to Jones Snowboards' dedication to sustainable manufacturing practices.

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 2.0 - Traction Tech 2.0 utilizes two bumps per edge (front binding, back binding) for improved edge control and enhanced grip in all conditions.
3D Base Contour 4.0 - Advanced and finely tuned, 3D Contour Base 4.0 features 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose and tail as well as a 1mm Speed Channel between the tail edges which repels loose snow for added speed.
FSC™ Classic Core - A full wood, premium poplar core that offers fun pop, even flex, and solid durability.
Biax Fiberglass - A dual-direction, dual layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun and forgiving ride due to its tensile strength, reliability and snappy response.
V-Core Construction - The V-Core Construction has a slightly softer flex in the center of the board for improved maneuverability and a stiffer flex from the inserts through the tip and tail for stability and pop.
Sintered 7000 Base - Durable natural base material with added carbon for speed and good wax absorbency.
Progressive Sidecut - Delivers smoother turn initiation and exit as the edge tracks in and out of the snow with a less abrupt transition.
FSC™ Veneer Topsheet - Forest Stewardship Council (FSC™) is an international non-profit promoting responsible management of the world’s forests.
Blunt Nose - Provides the loft, or float, benefits of a much longer nose without the "snow plow" rounded tip and its extra 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.
Oversize Recycled Steel Edges - All Jones boards are made with oversize recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
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."
Supports "Protect Our Winters" - Protect Our Winters (POW) was started in 2007 by THE Jeremy Jones. It serves to educate about the importance of environmental protection to ensure a prosperous future for the outdoor recreation economy.
