The Solution is the ultimate all-terrain splitboard and delivers unrivaled backcountry performance in any snow condition. The blunt nose, directional rocker profile and inner/outer edge Traction Tech keep you locked in and gliding fast no matter where you roam. For improved ECO-performance, the Solution features a new textured ECO-plastic topsheet made from castor beans. The Solution also features the Boltless Bridge that eliminates base hardware, stainless steel tip and tail reinforcement plates for added durability plus Karakoram Ultra Clips for unmatched torsional board lock. New for 2019, we’ve lightened up the Solution’s Master Core and added Web Fused Carbon stringers for more pop and precision response under the bindings.
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.
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.
Traction Tech is a critical feature for rockered boards. Rocker improves glide in mixed conditions, but the decreased edge contact makes it harder to really lock into your turns and hold a solid edge. Traction Tech is crucial to offset the edge drift of rocker. — Jeremy Jones
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
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.
QUICK TENSION TAIL CLIP:
Built-in climbing skin tension system using pre-cut notch that eliminates the need for a traditional skin tail clip.
FLIP FLOP BASE
Producing two or more base color options minimizes p-tex waste. Order may be filled with either color. Color does not vary by size.
Made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and Carbon. This ultra-fast base is easy to repair thanks to the UHMW-PE.
WEND NATURAL WAX
Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
CONTROL SPLIT CORE
Dual-density full premium wood core designed specifically for splitboards. 2:1 paulownia to poplar stringer ratio keeps core light yet ultra damp
Multi-axis, stitched fiberglass laminate that offers a precise and responsive ride in any terrain or snow conditions.
All Jones Snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
RECYCLED ABS SIDEWALLS
ABS Plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. We improve the sustainability of our snowboards by using only recycled plastic.
OVERSIZED RECYCLED EDGES
All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
QUICK TENSION TAIL CLIP
Jones splitboards have a notch cut into the tail of both skis that allows the Quick Tension Tail Clip to simply slide into the notch and secure the skin.
KARAKORAM ULTRA CLIP
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.
STAINLESS STEEL REINFORCEMENT
Stainless steel plates are embedded into the nose and tail for improved board tip durability.
THE BRIDGE TECH
The Bolt-less 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 stifness and a more powerful connection at the split clips.
Carbon stringers add torsional stiffness for improved response and increased pop. Carbon layer keeps flex profile dimensionally stable for a consistent ride for the lifetime of the board.
ECO PLASTIC TOP TEXTURED
Bio-plastic topsheet made from Castor beans featuring a subtle texture for added durability. This eco-material is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant and water/snow repellent (snow sticks less to topsheet)
