Seen in lift lines at the heaviest resorts the world over, the Flagship has locked down the reputation as the most confidence inspiring snowboard on the planet. Jeremy Jones has spent the last 20 years honing every detail of the Flagship to offer such breakthrough performance. For 2017 we overhauled the Flagship by using new materials and fine tuning the shape. Power V Basalt stringers add torsional stability while the Spoon 3.0 Nose and Tail deliver mind bending glide and float. The wood topsheet on the Flagship has been replaced with Flax Fiberglass for added ECO-performance and the Mellow Magne-traction profile has been improved for added edge grip on hardpack.
A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and camber between the bindings. The rockered tip floats the board’s nose and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and response. A slightly rockered tail maintains the power and stability of a traditional board but helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.
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.
