Overview
This mega upgraded version of the Hovercraft is built with premium materials winning Act Snowboarding's Best Board for 2018. The Ultracraft’s Master Core has been re-profiled for better torsional response between the feet while maximizing lightness and damping. Carbon Stringers were added to the Ultra Construction to boost pop and response for an infinitely playful ride. The Sintered 9900 Base is actually concaved between the edges like a channel on a surfboard for improved glide. Take this puppy out Heli-boarding or Cat-boarding, its directional, powder-oriented shape and oversized Traction Tech edges increase edge hold to get you in and out of all sorts of crazy spots that you never thought you could ride. The Ultracraft supports "Protect Our Winters" and 1% For The Planet with a more environmentally conscience build, including materials like Recycled ABS sidewalls, an Eco-Plastic Topsheet and Recycled Steel Edges. All Jones boards are factory tuned and waxed so they're ready to hit the slopes straight out of the box. What are you waiting for? Grab an Ultracraft and hit the steeps!

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

Core

Master Core - Dual density full premium wood poplar and paulownia core designed to maximize lightness and damping. Less damping means less chatter and vibrations for a smoother ride.

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.

Ultra Construction - Ultra Construction combines a light wood core with two layers of carbon fiber for excellent snap and response.

Base

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
