The culmination of Jeremy Jones' two decades perfecting freeride-specific shapes, the Jones Flagship Snowboard is a directional dream-ride that dissects the steep and deep with equal parts power and precision. Its directional freeride shape features a blunted nose that slices through deep, untracked powder without the plowing effect. Set-back along the Flagship's directional shape, the board's Directional Rocker profile gives you camber underfoot, with a large, pronounced nose that rises early with a substantial rocker. Ultimately, this rocker-camber hybrid delivers the powerful edge hold and responsive energy transfer of camber underfoot, but with the effortless float of a large rockered nose. And to retain the board's snappy feel, there's a subtle tail rocker that's catch-free for initiating turns, without sacrificing off-the-back-foot power.

Timelessly styled, the board's tasteful Oak topsheet features burned, "no-ink" logos. This not only frees the board from using toxic plastics and lacquer finishes, but it also enhances the board's damp, chatter-free characteristics.  Inside the board, its Master Core 2.0 is made of triple-density wood, with hardwood beech stringers along the edges for increased impact resistance, should you smash into rocks under the snow. The Quadrax carbon layup blends multi-layered, multi-axis fiberglass with dual-zone carbon power bands for near-instantaneous response and straight-line stability when you're bombing steeps.

Holding an edge, even on the steepest, sketchiest terrain, the board's Mellow Magne-Traction provides tenacious edge hold through hardpack snow and variable conditions, especially when you're riding in the backcountry. Oversized recycled metal edges are incredibly resilient, taking a beating all-season long. Further enhancing its freeride abilities, the Sintered 9990 base is not only tough enough to ride over rocky chutes and terrain, but it also glides fast over fresh, sticky snow without bogging down in flat run-outs.

Perfect all mountain board

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Love this board. I was looking for a stiffer board that could handle variable condtions. I had a chance to try this out at Silverton, CO where conditions were (sadly) not ideal. Hadn't snowed in a month and survival skills were required. The Flagship got me through no problem. Even managed to have some fun in the trees when we found the odd stash. Also got a chance to try it on powder at Telluride and really had some fun with it. Perfect all round board. Still waiting for deep powder so I can test it out against the Hovercraft, but looks like that's going to be next year...dammit!

This board kills powder. The stance is so set back and the board has so much nose that floating is a dream. When you find yourself in a field of open pow on the Flagship, be prepared for a surfy good time that will make anyone on the mountain jealous. It does very well on normal groomed trails as well, and having some mellow Magne-Traction is an awesome feature for those spots on the mountain that miss the sun. VERY stiff board, not very playful but it makes up for it in the powder or when you're charging that big steep line in somewhere like Jackson Hole or Snowbird.

Good in powder, awesome for speeding

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Compared to my very old Rossignol Rocal, the Jones Flagship feels similar when cruising down beautifully groomed slopes with perfect snow. But as soon as you really step on it, you start to notice why this is the flagship: it doesn't chatter but calmly takes you down, even when hitting bumps or clumps. This board nicely dampens, without making the ride dull. And it bites into ice with perfect grip. And it does fine on powder, but that goes without saying.

Great Stiffer Deck for Charging Hard

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Last winter I had a blast testing the entire 2015/2016 Jones Snowboard line up and a whole bunch more. Contact me if you want to chat/email about which Jones board will suit your personal riding style the best.

While I don't have this deck in my quiver (yet!), I rode the 2015/2016 model last winter and damn.

Across all aspects, this board was flawless for my style and preference. The things I really dig about this board is the ability to cruise hard through rough terrain. This is a stiffer board which handles great in pow but also on hard pack.
