"The Storm Chaser is a power packed swallowtail that offers magical float in pow and radical carving potential. Surfboard shaper Chris Christenson designed the rocker profile and base contours of the Storm Chaser by using the refined dimensions of his fastest gliding surfboards. The result is an explosively fast powder rocket that packs insane float into a nimble, short board. The ultra-wide waist width and Spoon 4.0 base contours help maximize the float of the short running length and the Surf Rocker profile pops the nose even further out of the snow when you rock into a bottom turn. New for 2019, we’ve lightened up the Storm Chaser’s Bamboo Surf Core and added Web Fused Carbon to the nose to help smooth out the ride in rough snow."
3D CONTOUR BASE 4.0: Our most advanced 3D-base contour pattern featuring 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose, 4mm in the tail and a 1mm deep Speed Channel between the tail edges. Concave Speed Channel pushes loose snow out from under the board for added speed.
CHRISTENSON SURF ROCKER PROFILE: Custom tip/tail rocker profile designed by surf shaper Chris Christenson for the Mind Expander, Mountain Surfer and Storm Chaser. The nose rocker starts just inside of the front inserts and the tail rocker starts just at the back inserts. When you weight the tail of the board the nose ramps up out of the snow for insane float on the deepest days. These subtle rocker contours match a Christenson surfboard rocker profile.
TRACTION TECH: 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
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.
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.
BAMBOO SURF CORE
Re-designed triple density Bamboo Surf wood core that features primarily paulownia stringers with bamboo stringers positioned in the pocket of the sidecut for better edge response and turn power.
A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.
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.
STAINLESS STEEL REINFORCEMENT
Stainless steel plates are embedded into the nose and tail for improved board tip durability.
CARBON WEB FUSED
New carbon stringer pack that blends different widths of carbon matched to the specific needs of the board model. Featured on the surf collection models to eliminate nose vibration and on the Solution splitboard as a reinforcement under the binding. Made in the USA, EXCLUSIVE for Jones.
ECO PLASTIC TOPSHEET
Bio-plastic topsheet made from Castor beans. This eco-material is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant and water/snow repellent (snow sticks less to topsheet)
