The Ultracraft Splitboard is one of the lightest, most technically capable splitboards on the planet.

Despite it’s featherweight, the Ultracraft is rock solid on descent as the directional rocker nose delivers epic float while the stubby, stiff tail offers powerful board control. The Ultracraft is built with our most advanced materials including Textreme Carbon, our new FSC Ultra Core and a new Ultra Base that’s the fastest base we’ve ever tested. Updated Inner/Outer Traction Tech 2.0 edges improve edging power going up or down and the Boltless Bridge plus Karakoram Ultra Clips deliver rock solid torsional response. The Ultracraft Split also features new Karakoram Tip-Lock clips that lock your nose+tail together in ride mode 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
Wend Natural Wax
Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
Ultra Base
New Jones exclusive base material that sets new performance standards. Lab results and snow testing show 25% better wax absorption, better glide in warm/wet snow and better durability for grinding. We’ve also doubled the amount of wax and mixed multiple wax types for a faster factory wax in a wider range of conditions.
TeXtreme® Carbon
Specially designed carbon fiber (12k non-crimp fabric) that is podium proven in the America’s Cup and Tour De France. TeXtreme achieves a weight savings of about 20-30% compared to conventional carbon fiber.
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.
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.
Ultra Construction
Ultra Construction is the redefinition of what it takes to build a snowboard.We’ve tested every inch of the board to precisely position materials exactly where they are needed while eliminating all excess materials. Combining these innovative construction techniques with superlight wood cores and carbon fiber deliver revolutionary results. Jones Ultra boards are the lightest, yet most durable snowboards on earth.
Karakoram Tip-Lock Tip Clips
Every splitboarder knows the feeling - you drop into a firm line and your tip clip pops open! Never again. Using Active Joining Technology, the Karakoram Tip-Lock Tip Clips quickly lock and clamp the tips of your splitboard with the flick of the lever.
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.
Fiberglass Reinforcement
Fiberglass layer improve pop in nose and tail plus increases 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.
Fusion Tech
Jones exclusive production process allows traditional topsheet layer to be replaced with ultra durable epoxy layer saving weight and material.
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
Alternative Freeride boards are designed to be ridden substantial shorter than a Directional Freeride board.
For an Ultracraft, go 4 - 8 cm shorter than your Directional Freeride board.
Choose the ideal size Alternative 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.

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.
