#IHeartHovercrafting

The Ultracraft is a high performance alternative freeride board that carves piste and rips pow like a race board. Featuring the same shape as the Hovercraft, only built with premium materials, the Ultracraft has no top speed railing a turn in smooth snow. The rocker nose delivers epic float in pow while the stubby, stiff tail and long sidecut offer powerful board control when moving fast. The 3D Contour Base 4.0 features spooned nose+tail edges for improved float and turn fluidity and a speed channel in the tail for added glide. New for 2020, the Ultracraft is now built with our FSC Ultra Core for lightweight pop and a Flax Topsheet plus Basalt Power Stringers for supreme torsional response, reduced board chatter and improved sustainability.

 


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

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
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.
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.
Oversized Recycled Edges
All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
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.
Power Sustainable Basalt Stringers
New sustainable stringer made with 100% natural fibers. Basalt stringers improve torsional response and transfer power from under your feet to the tips of the board to help eliminate nose and tail chatter.
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.
Sustainable Flax Top
FSC™ Ultra Core
The new Ultra Core is our lightest 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.
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.

Next level technology for ultimate response
Glide. Flow. Float.
3D Contour Bases are designed to make every run smoother and every turn more effortless by reducing the drag of the board tips. 3D Contour Bases enhance glide and improve float helping you ride faster and with better flow.

I’ve been on a quest to design a snowboard that offers the friction free glide and edge-to-edge fluidity of a surfboard for years. 3D Contour bases finally cracked the code on how to achieve this next level of board performance. Jeremy Jones
