Steep, deep, hardpack or chunder, the Flagship crushes in all conditions and is widely known as one of the most confidence inspiring freeride boards on the planet. Jeremy Jones spent the last 20 years honing every detail of the Flagship to offer such breakthrough performance including the Spoon 3.0 nose and tail. The edges along the Spoon nose are beveled up for improved float and turn fluidity while the Spoon tail edges are beveled up for less catch. The Flagship’s Flax Fiberglass topsheet adds ECO-performance while the Power V Basalt stringers transfer power precisely where you need it. New for 2018, the Flagship’s 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.
Made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and Carbon. This ultra-fast base is easy to repair thanks to the UHMW-PE.
Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
Triple-density full wood core featuring hardwood bamboo stringers for added pop and durability plus paulownia for weight savings.
Multi-axis, stitched fiberglass laminate that offers a precise and responsive ride in any terrain or snow conditions.
A durable, sustainable and high performance dampening 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.
Natural Pre-Cured Basalt stringers transfer power from under your feet to the tips of the board to help eliminate nose and tail chatter.
