Sustainably sourced woodcores

All Jones woodcores are made with sustainably sourced wood. Every piece of wood we use in every board comes from a responsibly managed forest.

Wend Bio Wax

Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with Wend natural wax, a plant blend and biodegradable wax that is also non-toxic.

100% recycled ABS

Since 2014, all of our snowboards and splitboards have been built with recycled ABS sidewalls. We've used 847 miles of sidewalls since switching to recycled ABS.

Bio Resin

Bio Resin is a bio-based epoxy made with 27% plant-based carbon instead of petroleum-based carbon. The organic raw materials used to make bio-resin are co-products or waste products of plant-based industrial processes.

Built with 100% solar power

As of May 2020, all Jones snowboards and splitboards are made with 100% solar power. Switching our snowboard and splitboard production to 100% solar made a 89% reduction in CO2 compared to non-solar powered production.

Technology

Highlights

Karakoram Ultra clips

Karakoram Ultra clips

Ultra clips are the strongest, lowest profile splitboard clips in the world. They deliver unmatched compression between board halves and they are adjustable so you can maintain even compression as your splitboard ages.

Premium sintered base

Premium sintered base

Life's too short to ride slow bases! All our boards have hyper fast sintered bases made from super durable and wax absorbant premium P-tex. See the tech features for specific base details.

Factory tuned, ready to shred

Factory tuned, ready to shred

Buy it, mount it, rip it! All boards leave the factory ready to ride with de-tuned tip + tail, edges angled at 90°/0° and bases waxed with Wend natural wax.

Forever Flex

Forever Flex

Forever Flex is a new manufacturing process that helps stabilise the flex and rocker of a board for its lifetime.

Sustainably made, built by the sun

Sustainably made, built by the sun

We strive to make gear with the least carbon footprint possible. All boards built with Bio Resin, recycled sidewalls + edges and sustainably sourced woodcores + topsheets. Jones boards are also now built with 100% solar power!

Inner/Outer Traction Tech edges

Inner/Outer Traction Tech edges

Lock in up and down. Traction Tech on inside and outside split edges improves grip on icy skintracks or firm descents.

Sustainably sourced woodcore

Sustainably sourced woodcore

All Jones woodcores are made from wood species that have been sustainably grown and harvested. See the tech features page for more details.

Biax Fiberglass

Biax Fiberglass

A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.

Karakoram Tip-Lock tip clips

Karakoram Tip-Lock tip clips

Every splitboarder knows the feeling - you drop into a firm line and your tip clip pops open! Never again. Using Active Joining Technology, the Karakoram Tip-Lock tip clips quickly lock and clamp the tips of your splitboard with the flick of the lever.

Boltless Bridge

Boltless Bridge

Less hardware, more power. The Bolt-less Bridge eliminates split clip hardware from the base of the board and enhances split connection by re-profiling the woodcore under the clips.

Technology

Features & Construction

1. Inside & outside Traction Tech 2.0

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.

Inner edge Traction Tech

Inner edge Traction Tech improves splitboard edge grip on ascent. Three sidecut bumps on each side of your binding keep your locked in on icy skin tracks no matter which way you are traversing.

2. Progressive sidecut

At the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually increasing the sidecut 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.

3. Quick Tension Tail Clip

Built-in climbing skin tension system using pre-cut notch that eliminates the need for a traditional skin tail clip.

4. Boltless Bridge

The Boltless Bridge eliminates split clip attachment hardware from the base of the board by re-profiling the wood core at the clips. The wood core under the clips is thicker, providing better torsional stiffness and a more powerful connection at the split clips.

V-core

Jones exclusive wood core profiling that offers a stable and playful board feel. The wood core is softer between the feet for easy turn initiation and stiffer in the nose and tail for stability riding through uneven terrain and landing airs.

Blunt nose

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

Christenson Surf Camber/Rocker

Custom rocker/camber flex pattern designed by surf shaper Chris Christenson. 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 and helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.
