logo-jones

Intelligent designs, innovative materials and bombproof construction are the heart, soul, skin and bones of every board in the Jones line-up. We sacrifice nothing to build high performance and durable boards that are a direct reflection of our passion for snowboarding day-in day-out, snow or sunshine, pow or bulletproof, in the trees, the steeps, or the park.

Men’s Boards

Carbon Flagship

Carbon-Flagship

The Carbon Flagship is a freeride scalpel capable of surgical precision on the rowdiest lines around. Whether inbounds or out, it crushes terrain with a confidence underfoot unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. The carbon topsheet and specially positioned carbon stringers combine to produce a light and lively board that’s stupid fast edge-to-edge, yet damp as your footbeds after a day shredding bell to bell.

Flagship

Flagship

The Flagship is widely regarded as one of the finest freeride boards on the planet. The Flagship’s now-legendary reputation comes as no surprise to Jeremy Jones. Jeremy has spent the last two decades perfecting this rhino chaser design that’s as powerful as it is responsive. Coveted for it’s stability at speed and wall crawling edge grip, the Flagship will hit mach-speed without fluttering your heart beat thanks to the mellow Magne-traction, directional rocker and camber underfoot. The Flagship’s ash-wood topsheet is also a game-changer as it provides a lively but damp board feel that’s big on pop and solid on landing. This board was born to go fast so watch out speed racer. It’s not our fault if you get your pass pulled for straightlining on the Flagship.

Aviator

Jones Aviator

Calling all freestyle fighter pilots. Your new war plane is waiting in the hangar. Built for speed and flight, the Aviator is a high-performance directional freestyle board for riders that rail carves and boost big in all-conditions. The nimble handling and supersonic acceleration of the Aviator result from the new 3D Power Camber profile. 3D Power Camber is an innovative positive camber profile that offers the insane edge response of camber without the usual hang-ups. The board profile crosses over into the third dimension as the base is beveled up at the edges from the contact points of the camber to the ends of the board. The 3D 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. Whether your flight plan includes cliff drops or stacked park jumps, the Aviator is lightning fast edge to edge and designed to inspire confident take-offs and graceful landings.

Mountain Twin

Jones Mountain Twin

The award-winning Mountain Twin may have a pretty face, but it hasn’t collected accolades the world over for it’s gorgeous graphics. This all-mountain charger is coveted and celebrated because it’s freakin’ ridiculously fun to ride. As playful as it is powerful, the Mountain Twin is a directional freestyle board with a freeride heart. It’s designed to shred the entire mountain like it’s your own personal skate park without sacrificing high-speed, line-bombing stability. Early rise tip and tail give the Mountain Twin float and finesse in soft snow while camber underfoot combined with Mellow Magne-Traction give the Mountain Twin snap and hold on hard pack. Backcountry freestylers like Alex Yoder ride the Mountain Twin 24/7 which is why we also offer it as a splitboard. Artwork by snowboarding legend, Bryan Iguchi.

Hovercraft

Jones Hovercraft

Ideal for Powder Hunting & Crud Busting
When is a pow board, not just a pow board? When your pow board is an all-terrain, all-conditions battle axe like the Hovercraft. Blower, crud or crust are no match for the trim and explosive Hovercraft as it floats through it all without sacrificing maneuverability. The blunt nose and directional rocker of the Hovercraft keep you partying in the pow, while the stiff tail and Mellow Magne-Traction lock in stability when the fresh tracks are gone. For catchfree slashing, the base along the tail edges is beveled up for more playful control. There is a good reason why you’ll catch Jeremy Jones riding the Hovercraft or the Hovercraft Split on more days than not. You can float, air it out and run it out all on the same rocket that makes effortless turns. Because the stubby Hovercraft packs so much float in such a small package, it’s designed to be sized 6-8 cm shorter than your average board.

Women’s Boards

Mothership

Jones Womens Mothership

Ideal for Freeriding and Fall-Line Freestyle.
The Mothership is a high-performance directional freeride board designed for riding technical terrain at warp speed. Mellow Magne-traction keeps the Mothership solid on ice, while the blunt nose, directional rocker and camber underfoot allow you to plow through pow or chunder one and the same. With specially tuned specs for smaller, lighter riders, the Mothership has identical features to the Flagship and is likewise our finest all-around freeride board.

Twin Sister

Jones Womens Twin-Sister

Ideal for Backcountry Freestyle and Resort Radness.
The Twin Sister is the board for women who like to turn up the tunes and dance down the mountain through the trees and into the terrain park. The Twin Sister features a twin-profile, directional flex, rockered tip and tail and traditional camber between the feet. Mellow Magne-Traction keeps the Twin Sister on edge and helps lock in every turn. Ladies looking for a stable yet playful board that’s easy to rally anywhere want the Twin Sister.
