Still the best selling splitboard in the world, the Solution delivers unrivaled backcountry performance in any terrain. The blunt nose, directional rocker profile and inner/outer edge Traction Tech keep you locked in and gliding fast no matter where you roam. For improved ECO-performance, the Solution features an ECO-plastic topsheet. The topsheet is made from castor beans and is snow-repellent so snow sticks to your board less. The Solution also features the Boltless Bridge which eliminates base hardware, stainless steel tip and tail reinforcement plates for added durability plus Karakoram Ultra Clips for improved torsional board lock. New for 2018, we’ve added carbon split stringers to the Solution for more pop and precision response.
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.
Built-in climbing skin tension system using pre-cut notch that eliminates the need for a traditional skin tail clip.
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.
Dual-density full premium wood poplar and paulownia core designed to maximize lightness and dampening.
Multi-axis, stitched fiberglass laminate that offers a precise and responsive ride in any terrain or snow conditions.
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.
ULTRA clips are lower profile, stronger and increase compression between board halves.
Stainless steel plates are embedded into the nose and tail for improved board tip durability.
Carbon stringers add torsional stiffness for improved response and increased pop. Carbon layer keeps flex profile dimensionally stable for a consistent ride for the lifetime of the board.
Bio-plastic topsheet made from Castor beans. This eco-material is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant and water/snow repellent (snow sticks less to topsheet).
