Details

Get barreled with every turn.

Based off the legendary pow-surfing shape of the original Hovercraft, the Jones Hovercraft Splitboard reigns supreme over your favorite backcountry stash with effortless float, fluid turn initiation, and precise control across icy steeps. As its name implies, the Hovercraft Split delivers mind-blowing float when your local range gets buried with feet of fresh powder. However, don't be fooled by this seemingly single-minded pow shape. The Hovercraft Split slices across crud and holds an impressive edge on steeps, thanks to its Mellow Magne-Traction edges, camber underfoot, and responsive flex pattern.

Responsible for much of the board's amazing float, the tapered swallowtail shape naturally sinks the rear end in powder, with the gigantic nose hovering across the snow without sinking. Directional Rocker places responsive camber directly underfoot for railing aggressive carves in firmer conditions. For those days when the snow gods bless your local range with snorkel-deep pow, the lengthened nose rocker keeps you from submerging while a subtle tail rocker releases the back end for smooth slashes without hanging up.

Creating a striking aesthetic while smoothing out chop and vibration, the bamboo topsheet gives the Hovercraft Split distinctive style and smooth riding capabilities. Karakoram clips actively join together the board halves, reducing slop along the seam for a solid feel underfoot that's nearly indistinguishable from riding on a regular board. Magne-Traction inner edges inspire confidence on sketchy ascents, especially when you're side-hilling in icy conditions. Another impressive feature are stainless steel tip and tail protectors, which take the brunt of impact against buried debris lurking just beneath the snow, such as tree limbs and imposing rocks.

Hovercraft:
The float in the deep powder and the handling on hard pack is a combo that you just can't easily find in other "powder" specific boards out there. The big fat shovel nose on this with the right amount of rocker is just bad ass. But for touring the shorter (than a twin split) is nice on those mega tight/steep kick turns.
