Jones Solution 2023 Splitboard

Boardworks Breakdown:

This is the ultimate split. A lot of us here at the shop ride this. It charges, it floats, it slashes, It's nimble and playful when you want it to be, but can hold an edge and be a plank when you need to billy goat into some gnarly stuff. 

 

Manufacturer Description: 

The Solution is the ultimate all-terrain splitboard and delivers unrivaled backcountry performance in any snow condition.

Featuring a directional freeride shape, directional rocker profile and a mid-stiff flex, the Solution is playful in soft snow, yet confidence inspiring on steep, hard snow. For better float in pow, the Solution’s tapered shape sinks the tail and the 3D Contour Base makes every turn more fluid and effortless. For added response, the Solution is built with our premium Ultra core, Flax/Basalt Power stringers and an ECO-plastic topsheet. For added edge grip and torsional board lock, the Solution features Inner/Outer Traction Tech 3.0, plus Karakoram Tip-Lock clips that lock closed, and Karakoram Ultra Clips 2.0 that are smaller and lighter than the original Ultra clip design.

    Technology

    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.

    Inside & outside Traction Tech 2.0


    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.


    Inner edge Traction Tech: Inner edge Traction Tech improves splitboard edge grip on ascent. Three sidecut bumps on each side of your binding keep your locked in on icy skin tracks no matter which way you are traversing.

    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.



    Quick Tension Tail Clip

    Built-in climbing skin tension system using pre-cut notch that eliminates the need for a traditional skin tail clip.



    Boltless Bridge

    The Boltless 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 stiffness and a more powerful connection at the split clips.Tapered shape, 12.5 mm



    Tapered Shape

    The tapered shape sinks the tail in pow for better float and quicker turns.



    Blunt nose

    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 Rocker

    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.

    Base

    Wend Natural Wax
    Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
    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.
    Sintered 9900 Base
    Made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and Carbon. This ultra-fast base is easy to repair thanks to the UHMW-PE.

    Extra hardware

    Karakoram Ultra Clips 2.0 with Tip-Lock

    Redesigned Karakoram Ultra Clips 2.0 are lighter weight, clamp tighter and have a smaller footprint than the original Ultra Clip. They are also adjustable so you can maintain even compression as your splitboard ages.


    Fiber

    Triax fiberglass

    Multi-axis, stitched fiberglass laminate that offers a precise and responsive ride in any terrain or snow conditions.


    Other features

    Bio Resin

    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.

    Factory Tuned

    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

    Forever Flex is a new manufacturing process that helps stabilize the flex and rocker of a board for its lifetime.

    Recycled rounded ABS

    Rounded sidewall finish that improves board durability by protecting topsheet from chipping.

    Stainless steel reinforcement

    Stainless steel plates are embedded into the nose and tail for improved board tip durability.

    Outer oversized recycled edges

    Advancements in ski edge durability allows us to use thinner edges on splitboard inside edges to save weight. The outside edges are 2mm, inside edges are 1.5mm.

    Inner thin recycled edges

    Advancements in ski edge durability allows us to use thinner edges on splitboard inside edges to save weight. The outside edges are 2mm, inside edges are 1.5mm.


    Reinforcements

    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.


    Topsheet

    Textured Eco-plastic topsheet

    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).


    Woodcore

    Ultra Split Core

    Dual density premium wood core made of mostly paulownia with specially positioned poplar stringers for better durability and turn power.
