Jones Flagship Carbon Snowboard 2014
Ideal for High-Speed Freeriding and Technical Lines
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.
Carbon – Construction
The Carbon series boards are not to be taken lightly. They are stiff and ultra-responsive freeride boards built for moving fast over technical terrain. The secret sauce that gives the Carbon series the horsepower and handling of a Formula One car is our Carbon Construction. By combining two full bi-directional carbon topsheet layers with carbon stringers and a top secret dual-density wood core, Jones’ Carbon Construction offers unmatched dampening, stiffness and torsional rigidity.
A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and slight camber between the bindings. The rockered tip gives the nose added float and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot gives you added 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. – Jeremy Jones
