Mountain Twin

Freestyler with a freeride habit

sizes available 151, 154, 157, 158 W, 160, 161 W, 164 W

Ideal for Backcountry Freestyle and Resort Radness

The award-winning Mountain Twin may have a pretty face, but it hasn’t collected accolades the world over for it’s gorgeous graphics. This all-mountain charger is coveted and celebrated because it’s freakin’ ridiculously fun to ride. As playful as it is powerful, the Mountain Twin is a directional freestyle board with a freeride heart. It’s designed to shred the entire mountain like it’s your own personal skate park without sacrificing high-speed, line-bombing stability. Early rise tip and tail give the Mountain Twin float and finesse in soft snow while camber underfoot combined with Mellow Magne-Traction give the Mountain Twin snap and hold on hard pack. Backcountry freestylers like Alex Yoder ride the Mountain Twin 24/7 which is why we also offer it as a splitboard. Artwork by snowboarding legend, Bryan Iguchi.

Jones Snowboards - 2014 Mountain Twin

Profile

Camrock

A unique rocker/camber flex pattern defined by evenly balanced tip and tail rocker and slight camber between the bindings. CAMROCK improves freestyle finesse by keeping your tips playful while maintaining the power and pop of camber underfoot.

  • MELLOW MAGNE-TRACTION

    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 key ingredient for rockered board designs. Adding rocker to your board makes it glide more smoothly, but it makes it harder to really lock into your turns and hold a solid edge. Magne-Traction is crucial to offset the drift typical of rocker flex patterns.” - Jeremy Jones

  • BLUNT NOSE

    “How a board glides in powder, crust, corn, or any snow condition more then 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.” - Jeremy Jones

  • HARD CORE

    Jones’ signature core, the Hard Core is a hybrid wood core designed for the ultimate pop, power transfer and durability. Featherweight Poplar stringers in the middle of the core are framed with bulletproof Beech stringers under the edges to produce a core that combines the snappy, even flex of Poplar with the damp, responsive benefits of Beech. Framing the sides of the core in the Beech hardwood creates unparalleled energy transfer to your edge and helps protect the board from harsh side impacts.

  • SINTERED BASE

    Fastest natural base material available. Durable, more resistant to impact, absorbs wax faster and retains wax longer.

  • CARBON STRINGERS

    Carbon stringers are added to select models to improve pop and 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.

  • TRIAX

    This light - weight, multi axis, stitched fiberglass laminate provides torsional stiffness, pop and response for a precise controlled ride in a multitude of terrain and snow conditions.

  • FLIP FLOP BASE

    By flip flopping the base graphic colors, P-Tex waste is drastically reduced by increasing the material yield.

  • FILM TOPSHEET

    A thin piece of film replaces the traditional plastic topsheet. This eliminates plastic and reduces the weight of the board.

  • FACTORY TUNED

    All Jones Snowboards are factory tuned, detuned at the tip and tail and factory waxed so you can go from the shop right to the hill.

  • RECYCLED ABS SIDEWALLS

    All Jones boards feature recycled ABS sidewall material.

  • STRONGER EDGES

    We added 35% more steel than a typical edge, what this achieves is a 250% increase in impact resistance compared to other edges offered on the market today.

Proudly made in Austria

Jones Snowboards are proudly made at the GST factory in Antiesenhofen, Austria.

Our dedication to performance, durability and environmental responsibility makes this small town in central Europe the best place in the world for Jones to manufacture our boards. GST’s state-of-the-art factory is a snowboard-only production facility that specializes in working with cutting edge materials and innovative construction techniques. Their focus on strictly controlling every step in the production process has earned GST the lowest warranty rate in the snowboard industry.

But beyond quality of product, what makes GST the perfect partner is both their location and their passion for environmental stewardship. We are able to source 95% of our materials from within 500 km of the factory including steel edges from Germany, woodcores from Slovenia and inserts from Italy. GST’s central location to these premier material suppliers allows us to use less energy and transportation resources than if we were to build our boards in a private factory in the USA and source materials from around the world. Our environmental footprint is even further reduced by GST’s own practices. The company is a pioneer in sustainable ski/board manufacturing as the factory runs on recycled water and green energy.
