An icon for a reason.
Leveraging two decades of Jeremy Jones' experience perfecting freeride-specific shapes, the Jones Flagship Wide Snowboard is a directional dream-ride that destroys steep, exposed lines and fresh tree runs with equal parts power and precision. Wider than the standard Flagship, this board accommodates riders with big feet, meaning you can cruise without pesky toe drag sapping you down. Its wider shape is also great for bigger guys (just look at the weight specs) looking for enhanced stability and float that's simply not available on narrower boards.
Its directional shape features a blunted nose that slices through deep, untracked powder, sans the plowing effect. Meanwhile, the Directional Rocker gives you camber underfoot, with a large, pronounced nose that rises early, complete with substantial rocker. This camber-rocker hybrid yields the powerful edge hold and responsive energy transfer of camber underfoot, yet maintains the effortless float of a larger, rockered nose. And to retain the board's snappy feel, there's a subtle tail rocker that's catch-free for initiating turns, and simply won't sacrifice off-the-back-foot power.
And of course, the Flagship is timelessly styled. The oak topsheet features burned, "no-ink" logos. This not only frees the board from using toxic plastic and lacquer finishes, but it also enhances the board's damp, chatter-free characteristics. Inside the board, its Power Core is made of triple-density wood, complete with hardwood beech stringers along the edges for increased impact resistance. Power V basalt stringers transfer power from under your feet to the tips of the board to help eliminate chatter, while triax fiberglass offers a precise and responsive ride in just about any type of terrain or conditions.
Built to hold an edge on the steepest, sketchiest terrain, the board's Mellow Magne-Traction provides relentless edge hold over hardpack and variable conditions. Oversized recycled steel edges are incredibly resilient, taking a beating all season long. Further enhancing its freeride abilities, the Sintered 9900 base is tough enough to ride over rocky chutes, and also provides fast-gliding performance over fresh, sticky snow.

This is the high performance Cadillac of the snowboard world. I've ridden this a bunch and just love how it handles in all conditions. If I was only able to own one snowboard, this would be the board (keep in mind I'm not a park guy, so the stiffer flex pattern is perfect for me).But I love the handling of this board in all terrain from the steeps and deeps to groomers.
This board had the edge to edge rocker (spoon)in the tip and it helps the board float a bit more effortlessly through the powder while making turn initiation on hardpack easier. While the Spoon is really noticeable (visually and performance-wise) on boards like the Storm Chaser, the Spoon is a little less prominent on the Flagship. I'm pretty happy that Jones Snowboards didn't take one technology and just blast it across their line up. Instead they refined the tech and applied it as needed to each board.
