Jones Stratos 2023 Snowboard
The is a more agile version of the flagship. Think of this board as a corvette and the flagship as a truck. (A really nice truck) This thing turns on a dime, has a little bit more playfulness to it. But don't get us wrong, it's tapered and has the float pack inserts (extra inserts set way back) for absolutely running over pow.
The Stratos is a hybrid all-mountain board built with the body of a directional freeride board and the spirit of a freestyle board.
The Stratos has a playful board feel thanks to a narrow sidecut and friendly flex, but the 10mm of taper and 3D Contour Base 3.0 give it the float and turn performance of a pow board. The directional rocker profile and Traction Tech 3.0 keep the Stratos locked on edge accelerating into carves and the textured Eco-plastic topsheet and Basalt stringers add torsional response and reduce board chatter in rough terrain. The Stratos also features Float Pack inserts that offer a setback stance option for 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, 10mm
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 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.
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.
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).
Dual-density premium wood core made of mostly paulownia with specially positioned poplar stringers for better durability and turn power.
