Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am writing this review because seemingly the last years reviews are not visible any more.

I had this boot from last year, I have ridden it on total about 17-20 days. As Billy was mentioning the lacing system is not reliable.

First of all, it does not give you that independent tightening of upper and lower zones. Secondly, I have to tighten it at least twice a day, exactly as Bill wrote in his review. Finally, and most importantly, after just +/- 17 riding days, two of the four lacing stopper got broken.

To the positive sides - the really grippy sole, comfort liner, warm.

I will definitely return the item.

heavier, bigger, liner softer vs Ion
3 5

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

I just received these boots in 30 cm and compared them to Burton Ion 2012/13 in size 12 (equivalent to 30 cm)
Weight: Deeluxe is 2630 g, Ion is 1970 g.
Footprint: Deeluxe about 1 inch bigger, see foto.
Liner: almost the same footprint, looks much softer (even compared with Ion ridden for 60 days), with way thicker upper part, and nothing like Rad Pads to prevent compacting the tong.

I will update the review after riding the boot.

Would be great if build properly

A very nice stiff boot, with right mixture of comfort and stiffnes. However, after just 50 riding days or so (which in my case took more then a year, so no warranty), the pirelli protector just went off on both foots..... see pictures. Also got really soft, with toe part completely packed.
I believe that for this price range more then 50 days of riding is expected...

(used with Union force and Burton Cartel)

Really disappointed with build quality =(

Very nice addition to the camera, BUT the battery life is really short. While I can change the battery of my camera on the go and shoot during the whole day if needed, no chance of charging your Remote on the slopes. A considerable drawback for otherwise nice device.

The switch for the ratchet is smooth and it is not easy to hit the right position with the first try.

Also, when the screw is already loose you can neither use the rathchet (it is normal) nor reach the ratchet itself with fingers (which is uncomfortable).

Other devices, like Burton Bullet are much better in this sence.

Finally, I cannot imagine why would you need so many different drivers setuping your snowboard?

tail design flaws, no warranty
1 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Right out of the packaging I found the tail aluminum insert already disbonded. Issue very similar to one experienced by Daniel Ochoa in other review. Seems to be a design flaw!

The Jones snowboard does not provide you with anything that could be actually called a "Manufacturer Warranty". If you give/sell your two days (month, whatever) old board to a friend of yours he will have neither BC "guaranteed return", nor the Jones' warranty. Absolutely outrageous!!!

The board rides interesting, but I have no wish to give any detailed review provided such a "very nice" customer service of the Jones.

just didn't open

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

the first time I used it didn't open... just didn't open... I would suspect myself in forgetting the combination if there were none of similar complaints on the internet.
Thanks God, I was able to "unchain"my board.
and I cannot return it now since I had to left it on the resort (((((

cosmetic issues before being used
3 5

I didn't use the bindings yet, so I will keep the review updated. But even before being installed on the board they have already two cosmetic issues - the paint which partial got off just being in the box, and the union onlay which just fell off....

Hope that the riding quality will not be similar to this.
