The Project X is a razor sharp, ultralight all-mountain board that rides like a luxury sport sedan - powerful, with impeccable handling and a comfortable flex. Jones’ Board Engineer Xavier Nidecker designed the Project X to reflect the future of snowboard production. It’s built with our most advanced materials and construction technologies including a unique variation of ULTRA Construction that features multiple layers of Fusion Tech and Textreme Carbon instead of a traditional topsheet/fiberglass. 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 Project X features a limited edition, hand numbered serial badge and an advanced new fiber- glass that improves strength by 15% without adding weight.
An innovative traditional camber profile tweaked to offer the insane edge response of camber without the usual hang-ups. The camber radius tapers to flat toward the tips and the base is beveled up one degree at the edges from the contact points of the camber to the ends of the board. The base beveling releases the edges where they like to hook which balances the pop and directional stability of camber with a looser, less-catchy feel.
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 core featuring stringers of ISOCORE - a foam/fiberglass composite that’s as stiff as any wood but 15% lighter. Hardwood beech stringers are positioned along the edges for added durability.
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.
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.
Jones exclusive production process allows traditional topsheet layer to be replaced with ultra durable epoxy layer saving weight and material.

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.
