Jones Flagship 2023 Snowboard
This board rips. You will see a lot of these around because they charge. Anything you throw at this board, it'll handle it. I mean, if big mountain Jeremy Jones rides it, it'll do fine at anything us mortals throw at it.
The Flagship excels in technical terrain and is one the most confidence inspiring free ride boards on the planet.
Featuring a directional rocker profile + Traction Tech 3.0 for unmatched edge grip on hard snow and a 3D Contour Base 3.0 for epic float in pow, the Flagship carves, stomps or straight lines with unbelievable precision. The Flagship’s tapered shape sinks the tail in pow for better float and quicker turns, while the Engineered Veneer Topsheet, Flax/Basalt Power Stringers and new Power Core add torsional response and reduce board chatter in rough snow.
New for 2021, the Flagship has Float Pack inserts that give you the option of super setback stance on the deepest days.

3D CONTOUR BASE 3.0
Freeride focused 3D-base contours featuring an even balance of 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose and 7mm of spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point. 3D Contour Bases are designed to make every run smoother and every turn more effortless by reducing the drag of the board tips. 3D Contour Bases enhance glide and improve float helping you ride faster and with better flow.
Basalt Power Stringers
Sustainable stringers made with 100% natural fibers. Basalt stringers improve torisonal response and transfer power from under your feet to the tips of the board to help eliminate nose and tail chatter.
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.
Traction Tech 3.0
Traction Tech 3.0 features three bumps per edge (front binding, board center, back binding). The middle bump is slightly bigger than the outside bumps for better grip.
TAPERED SHAPE, 12.5 mm
The tapered shape sinks the tail in pow for better float and quicker turns.
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
Directional Flex Pattern
Jones exclusive wood core profiling that offers a stable and playful board feel. The wood core is softer between the feet for easy turn initiation and stiffer in the nose and tail for stability riding through uneven terrain and landing airs.
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.
WEND NATURAL WAX
SINTERED 9900 BASE
Multi-axis, stitched fiberglass laminate that offers a precise and responsive ride in any terrain or snow conditions.
Allows super setback stance for deep pow days.
Bio Resin is a bio-based epoxy made with 27% plant-based carbon instead of petroleum-based carbon. The organic raw materials used to make bio-resin are co-products or waste products of plant-based industrial processes. Bio-resin requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions to produce than conventional epoxy.
All Jones Snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
Forever Flex is a new manufacturing process that helps stabilise the flex and rocker of a board for its lifetime.
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.
SUSTAINABLE FLAX/BASALT POWER STRINGERS
Sustainable stringer made with 100% natural fibers. Basalt stringers improve torsional response and transfer power from under your feet to the tips of the board to eliminate nose and tail chatter.
Engineered Wood Veneer
New composite wood veneer topsheets. Wood veneer topsheets dampen ride and absorb board chatter.
Triple-density full wood core featuring hardwood bamboo stringers for added pop and durability plus paulownia for weight savings.
