The Ultimate All-Condition Split

The Solution is the ultimate all-terrain splitboard and delivers unrivaled backcountry performance in any snow condition. Featuring a directional freeride shape, directional rocker profile and a mid-stiff flex, the Solution is playful in soft snow, yet confidence inspiring on steep, hard snow. The updated Inner/Outer Traction Tech 2.0 edges are thinner on the inside for weight savings while keeping you locked in and gliding fast going up or down. The Solution also features the Boltless Bridge which eliminates base hardware and Karakoram Ultra Clips for unmatched torsional board lock.

New for 2020, the Solution is built with our premium FSC Ultra Core and Flax/Basalt Power Stringers for added response and Rounded Recycled ABS Sidewalls for improved topsheet durability.

 


Personality

 


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

Quick Tension Tail Clip
Built-in climbing skin tension system using pre-cut notch that eliminates the need for a traditional skin tail clip.
Progressive Sidecut
At the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually increasing the sidecut 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.
Blunt Nose
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 nose without the ‘snow plow’ rounded tip and it’s extra swing weight. — Jeremy Jones
Flip Flop Base
Producing two or more base color options minimizes p-tex waste. Order may be filled with either color. Color does not vary by size.
Sintered 9900
Made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight ­Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and Carbon. This ultra-fast base is easy to repair thanks to the UHMW-PE.
Wend Natural Wax
Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
Triax Fiberglass
Multi-axis, stitched fiberglass laminate that offers a precise and responsive ride in any ­terrain or snow conditions.
Factory Tuned
All Jones Snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
Karakoram Ultra Clip
ULTRA clips are the strongest, lowest profile splitboard clips in the world. They deliver unmatched compression between board halves and they are adjustable so you can maintain even compression as your splitboard ages.
Stainless Steel Reinforcement
Stainless steel plates are embedded into the nose and tail for improved board tip durability.
The Bridge Tech
The Bolt-less Bridge eliminates split clip attachment hardware from the base of the board by re-profiling the wood core at the clips. The wood core under the clips is thicker providing better torsional stifness and a more powerful connection at the split clips.
Recycled Rounded ABS
New rounded sidewall finish that improves board durability by protecting top sheet from chipping. Available on all splitboards and Surf Series models.
Thin Recycled Edges
Advancements in ski edge durability allow us to use thinner edges on splitboard inside edges (and ProjectX outside edges) to save weight. Outside edges are 2mm, inside edges are 1.5mm.
Sustainable Flax/Basalt Power Stringers
New Jones exclusive sustainable stringer made with 100% natural fibers. Composite Flax and Basalt stringers help transfer power to the edges, improves torsional response and absorbs board chatter.
Eco Plastic Top TEXTURED
Bio-plastic topsheet made from Castor beans featuring a subtle texture for added durability. This eco-material is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant and water/snow repellent (snow sticks less to topsheet)
Super Sap Bio Resin
All Jones boards are now built with bio-based, renewable epoxy instead of petroleum based epoxy. The raw materials used to make Super Sap Bio-Resin are co-products or waste products of other plant-based industrial processes. Producing Super Sap requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions than conventional epoxy.
FSC™ Ultra Split Core
The new Ultra Split Core is our lightest split wood core yet. Core is made from mostly paulownia with specially positioned poplar stringers for better durability and turn power.
Gear 101
Not all board shapes are designed to be ridden the same size. Directional Freeride boards are the longest board you will ride.
Choose the ideal size Directional Freeride board using your weight and boot size (see the size chart below).
 
 
If you wear US Men’s 11.5 or bigger, look for our Big Horn series boards with minimum waist width 26.3 cm.
Not sure your ideal snowboard size? Check out our sizing guidelines for each model.
 

 
Know your board
The dimensions of a snowboard define how that board performs on snow. The dimension specs of all our models are fine tuned for specific styles of riding.
Understand how waist width, flex and sidecut and stance dimensions effect board performance to find the best board for you.
