Jeremy Jones’ brings surf-inspired designs to snow with new SPOON TECH.

On a surfboard, the subtle shaping of the nose is what makes the entry into a turn so smooth and fluid. The feeling of an effortless surf turn is what inspired the development of SPOON. Instead of having to abruptly tip the board into a turn, SPOON lets you roll your edge into a turn. I’ve been on a quest to design a snowboard that has the glide and edge-to-edge fluidity of a surfboard for years. Our new Spoon base contours finally cracked the code on how to achieve this next level of performance.

Have you ever groveled through a powder gully marveling at another rider’s track high on the walls but you can’t get up there? It’s likely more than just your wax job that’s holding you back. Speed is always a direct result of how your snowboard glides and floats through the snow. When your board is gliding fast you can accelerate quicker, maintain speed and make smoother turns.

GLIDE.

Our new SPOON 3D-base contours were specifically designed to provide next-level glide. The smooth radius of the SPOON nose and tail edges reduce friction at the contact points. With less friction and catch in the tips you can maintain more speed.

FLOW.

SPOON delivers unmatched turn flow and fluidity. Just like the nose and tail on a surfboard the rounded tip and tail edges eliminate any catch as you transfer pressure edge-to-edge. Turn initiation is effortless with the SPOON. Once on edge the camber and mellow magne-traction locks in your turn.

FLOAT.

When a board has good float it should feel effortless to keep your nose up through pow, crud or crust without burning out your back leg. SPOON 3D-base contours improve float by reducing the “plow effect” of your nose and tail edges. Instead of plowing through the snow, the rounded edges smoothly deflect the snow to the sides of the board which pops your nose up without having to lean back.

The tail on the 2017 Hovercraft and Ultracraft solid features a concave speed channel hull mid-board and raised outer edge wings.

The unique riding personality of each board in our collection demanded we develop multiple 3D-base contour patterns. Not every model would benefit from the same amount of Spoon. Each 3D-base contour pattern is matched to the attitude of the board. There are four different versions of SPOON.

SPOON 4.0
