The Ultracraft solid is a high-performance all-mountain board built for charging hard in any snow conditions. We’ve taken the powerful, compact shape of the revolutionary Hovercraft and built it out with premium materials including an eco-plastic film topsheet for improved production sustainability and basalt stringers for less chatter and more pop. Because of the compact shape, the Ultracraft can be ridden shorter than your average board. New for 2017, the Ultracraft solid has a Spoon 4.0 Nose and a Speed Channel 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. In between the raised tail edges, the base is concave like a channel on a surfboard for improved glide.
Our most advanced 3D-base contour pattern featuring distinct spoon bevel in the nose, moderate spoon bevel in the tail and a shallow Speed Channel between the tail edges. The concave Speed Channel pushes loose snow out from under the board for added speed.
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.
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.
