Jones Flagship Snowboard

With Jones' rocker/camber/rocker profile, you get a stiff board that still floats through even the deepest powder. It provides stability at light speed on groomers and is nimble enough through even the tightest trees! The early rocker in the tip will also help prevent the back-foot fatigue from leaning back all day on the pow days!

CaPiTa Defenders of Awesome Snowboard · 2022

$499.95

A legendary all-mountain twin-shaped freestyle deck that has brought the stoke out of every rider who has touched this board. Mid-flexing (5/10), with their Blaster Dual-core features poplar strips and paulownia core that provides tons of pop, stability, and playfulness. The profile is a slight positive camber to flat, to slight rocker to the tip and tail, great for jibbing, pressing, precise edge hold, quick turn initiation and stability off of landings. This board will shine in the park, but is an all resort destroyer.

A go-to for crushing park laps and bombing groomers. It's a blast everywhere. I've had mine for 3 seasons and it's amazing anywhere inbounds. Even on pow days if you set back your stance, it's awesome!

The Jones Mountain Twin is an extremely versatile directional twin designed with all mountain rippers in mind. This board is a jack-of-all-trades and a one-stop shop for multi-terrain fun.

  • Great for popping off of natural features, riding switch, and making the whole mountain your playground.

  • It has camber between the feet for solid edge hold and a locked in carve, with some rocker in the tip and tail for added float and forgiveness.

  • Jones makes excellent freeride oriented boards, and this is no exception. It can hold its in the jump line, but really shines as an all mountain machine for hitting natural features and hauling down groomers.

Park laps, groomers, side hits, you name it, the Warden can rip it. Killer mid-flex all-mountain rig from Rome, this one gives you a rocker at the tips and camber in between the inserts providing tons of response when you need it, but can keep things mellow if you so desire. Combined with a directional twin shape you get tons of stability while still being able to approach stuff switch.
