Description

All mountain freestyle.

We hear a lot about all-mountain freestyle boards, but the Jones Mountain Twin snowboard makes most of them look like glorified firewood. This directional twin has a setback stance and a directional flex for hard-charging ability that rivals most companies' freeride boards, with a freestyle inspired shape that turns side hits and pillow lines into the best park features on the hill. If your idea of fun is bringing your jump line tricks to the rest of the mountain, the Mountain Twin is exactly what you want strapped to your feet.

Camber between the feet keeps the Mountain Twin planted at speed, and there's slightly more rocker in the nose than the tail, for mach speed stability, without sacrificing handling when riding switch. Mellow Magne-Traction places bumps along the edge, for secure edgehold, even on ice. The blunted nose keeps swing weight down for extra response and faster spins. Triax fiberglass works in conjunction with carbon stringers that radiate out from the bindings to the tip and tail for a super responsive ride. The sintered base holds a bunch of wax, and runs crazy fast. The film topsheet not only saves weight, but it's more environmentally friendly than traditional constructions. And you can thank Brian Iguchi, your favorite rider's favorite rider, for the show-stopping graphics.

Sweet playful ride

For me this board is great for any day. Great float if you are already fairly strong with deep pow, and fantastic edge hold on hard or variable snow. The only negative i have is that it broke in and got VERY soft after about 60 days. that being said its a great ride but consider stiffer boards if you ride extremely hard(or have this just be for those playful days).

Good Board, Bad QC

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Rode this board for this season and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately after about 5 days the top sheet started to delaminate. I called Jones as I believed his defect should have been covered under warranty but they disagreed! Last Jones board I will buy.

Does it all

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

Got a chance to borrow a friend's during a storm here in the wasatch, this thing killed it. It far exceeded my expectations. I usually don't like hybrid camber boards, I ride either a true camber or a true rocker, but I loved riding this. The camber between your feet keeps you very stable while the early rise tip and tail give you enough float to keep you from rag dolling. Took this on steeps, cliffs, hardpack, tracked out bumps, and low angle trees. I had my stance setback an inch from the true center of the board.

Im 6'0 160 lbs and rode the 157 no problem.

FAST, fun, and built to last.

I've ridden this board a fair amount in varied conditions in Utah and Vermont. Powder, heavy wet snow, ice, and (this year anyway) over barely covered rocks and bushes. Sometimes you've just gotta ride!

I compared this board side by side with another board I was considering, the Never Summer Cobra. To say the material and build quality of the Jones Mountain Twin is better is a major understatement. Side by side, the Jones made the NS Cobra look and feel like something you'd buy at Walmart, and that says a lot, because Never Summer makes quality boards.

As far as the riding itself, the JMT will do anything you ask it to, and unless you're Jeremy Jones, it can probably do a fair number of things you can't. It's an extremely fast board, blasts through crud with no problem, doesn't chatter at high speeds, and even though the board is VERY fast all over the mountain, it's worth noting that it's the fastest board in the flats i've ever ridden. In the flats I pass skiers and other boarders constantly, even if they came into the flat area going faster than me.

The magna traction is a huge help in icy conditions, and when making long hard carves at high speeds, but the edges aren't catchy. This contributes to the speed in flats as well, you'd have to work hard to catch an edge on this board, regardless of speed.

I started the season riding new Burton Cartels with the JMT, and then switched to the Rome 390 Boss when the Burtons broke (surprise, surprise). There was no comparison, the Romes were a massive step up with this board, and their new "ConformGrip" toestrap is better than the Capstrap, check it out too.

If you need a board that can do it all: float on top of pow, carve hard on the steeps, confidently hold edges in ice, crush crud, haul butt, and send the occassional booter with abandon, the Jones Mountain Twin is your ultimate quiver killer.

This thing CHARGES

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The Mtn Twin is born and bred to take on pretty much anything. With a twin shape but setback stance you can set this guy up completely twin or easily push it back for the deep pow days. The hybrid camber is great for providing rocker float, but camber control when railing turns. What really helps this thing hold an edge is the Mellow magnetraction added near the tip and tail contact points. This really increases edge hold, however keeps the "hooky" feeling out of it. Overall a great board that you can ride everday at resorts, but just as easily venture into the sidecountry and backcountry and still be confident.

Such a fun board

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great all around board. Great for groomers and the deep light fluffy stuff! I love this thing, and whenever someone else sees it they always say that looks fun, and it is!

Responded on

How does this thing ride if it he stance is centered. I ride switch just as much as regular and was curious as to how it feels as I have always been on true twins for the past 15 years.

Riding switch on hard to soft snow feels about the same as regular. Switch feels a little slower in powder but that could just be me. I ride switch as much as I ride regular.
