The Carbon Flagship crushes terrain unlike any freeride board you’ve ever experienced. This is a seriously stiff, competition-ready weapon that’s built to be chatter free at ludicrous speeds and stable enough to stomp the biggest airs. The Carbon Flagship features cutting edge construction and materials including two layers of Textreme Carbon Fiber and the Spoon 3.0 Nose and Tail. The edges of the Spoon nose are beveled up for improved float and turn fluidity while the tail edges are beveled up for less catch. New for 2018, the Carbon Flagship has a limited edition, hand numbered serial badge and the Power Core has been re-profiled for better torsional response between the feet.
My experience is that most falls in freeriding start from the nose of the board – you either go over the bars in powder, the nose gets caught under a weird crust and tosses you, or you hit a hard tranny at the contact point of the tip and get bucked. Directional Rocker eliminates most of these falls.
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.”
“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
At the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually increasing the side cut 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.
By flip flopping the base graphic colors, P-Tex waste is drastically reduced by increasing the material yield.
Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
World Cup proven race base made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) modified with special Fluoro and Paraffin based additives for better glide and increased durability. ULTRA base is harder and faster than any other sintered base.
Triple-density full wood core featuring hardwood bamboo stringers for added pop and durability plus paulownia for weight savings.
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.
All Jones Snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
ABS Plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. We improve the sustainability of our snowboards by using only recycled plastic.
All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
Jones exclusive production process allows traditional topsheet layer to be replaced with ultra durable epoxy layer saving weight and material.
