Jones Storm Chaser 2023 Snowboard

 Boardworks Breakdown:

Arguably one of the most floaty fun boards in existence on a pow day. Super nimble and EXCELLS in flat pow you would normally get stuck in.  


Manufacturer Description:  

 

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 3D Contour Base 3.0 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. For a lively board feel, the Storm Chaser features a Bamboo Surf Core, and an ultra fast and durable Sintered 8000 base.

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.




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.


Traction Tech 1.0

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.

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


Directional flex pattern


Off set tip-to-tail flex pattern that is designed for directional freeride boards. The nose, center of board and tail are slightly different stiffnesses to help lift the nose, sink the tail and improve stability at speed.


V-core

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.



Tapered shape, 10mm

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


Christenson Surf Rocker

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.

BASE

WEND NATURAL WAX
Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.

Sintered 8000 Base

New super durable material made from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and carbon. Base is easily repairable, highly wax absorbent and wicked fast.


FIBER

Biax fiberglass

A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.




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 stabilise 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.

Oversized recycled edges

All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.



REINFORCEMENTS

Carbon innegra reinforcement

Carbon Innegra fiber forms an ultra-tough hybrid composite layer that dampens the board torsionally and from tip to tail. Made in the USA and featured on the Aviator, Airheart and Lone Wolf.


TOPSHEET

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).


WOODCORE

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.
