Ideal for Technical Backcountry Lines
Many of the heaviest lines that go down in the world, go down in the backcountry. The Carbon Solution is built for powerful riders who rip technical backcountry lines and demand a splitboard that offers the same ultra-responsive performance as a top-level solid freeride deck. The carbon topsheet and carbon stringers provide a damp, stiff ride that excels in variable snow conditions. NEW for 2015 we’ve shaved 500 grams from the Carbon Solution using the ULTRA core.
A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and camber between the bindings. The rockered tip floats the board’s nose and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and response. A slightly rockered tail maintains the power and stability of a traditional board but helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch. “My experience is that most falls in freeriding start from the nose of the board - you either go over the bars in powder, the nose gets caught under a weird crust and tosses you, or you hit a hard tranny at the contact point of the tip and get bucked. Directional Rocker eliminates most of these falls.“ - Jeremy Jones
Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Magne-Traction improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board. “Magne-Traction 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. Magne-Traction is crucial to offset the edge drift of rocker.“ - Jeremy Jones
“How a board glides in powder, crust, corn or any snow more than an inch deep, is dictated by it’s 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 coming out from behind the tip 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 without the ‘snow plow’ rounded tip and it’s extra swing weight.“ - Jeremy Jones
At the far ends of the side cut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually increasing the side cut radius towards the contact point delivers smoother turn initiation and exit as the edge tracks in and out of the snow with a less abrupt transition.
The Carbon series boards are the ultimate boards for full-throttle freeriding. They are designed for pro-level riders who need unwavering board response moving at dangerously fast speeds. What gives the Carbon series such serious horsepower is Jones’ Carbon Construction. By combining two full bi-directional carbon topsheet layers with carbon stringers and a dual-density wood core, Carbon Construction offers unmatched damping, stiffness and torsional rigidity.
Flip Flop Base
By flip flopping the base graphic colors, P-Tex waste is drastically reduced by increasing the material yield.
The fastest, most durable and wax absorbent natural base material available.
Full-wood triple-density wood core that uses complex hardwood stringer positioning to produce a core that’s ultralight, uber responsive and super tough.
All Jones Splitboards feature Karakoram K-clips plus tip and tail hooks.
Recycled Stronger Edges
We use recycled steel edges made with 35% more steel than a standard edge. These reinforced edges offer a 250% increase in impact resistance compared to standard edges.
Reinforced aluminum tip protector bonded to a vibration-damping elastomer layer.
Recycled ABS Sidewalls
ABS Plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. We improve the sustainability of our snowboards by using only recycled plastic.
All Jones Snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail plus waxed with OneBallJay Bio Wax so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
Film topsheets provide the stiffness and impact resistance of a normal topsheet while significantly reducing weight by decreasing the thickness of the topsheet material.
OneBallJay BIO Wax
Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with OneBallJay BIO wax.
