Ride the lines you've been dreaming of.
From jagged peaks in AK to stacked spines in Nepal, Jeremy Jones continually pushes backcountry snowboarding to the loftiest heights. Representing Jeremy's favorite choice for skinning up and ripping down the most demanding lines on the planet, the Jones Solution Splitboard distills decades of his riding experience into an incredibly versatile, hard-charging splitboard. Pick up this backcountry weapon when you've had it with frenzied crowds on powder days and overpriced passes to your local resort.
Since it's built with deep powder and steep lines in mind, it features a Directional Rocker profile, which enhances float on those snorkel-deep days with its lengthened nose rocker. This profile places responsive camber directly underfoot, allowing you to drive into turns with power and precision. The subtle tail rocker prevents you from hanging up when you're slashing turns, while also facilitating switch landings in untracked powder. Because rocker profiles often lack edge hold, the Solution solves this problem with its Traction Tech edges. Going one step further for touring performance, Traction Tech along the inner edges improves side-hilling grip in challenging conditions.
New for this season, Jones added carbon stringers for improved pop that helps you explode out of turns. Bolt-Less Bridge technology thickens the core at the clips so Jones doesn't have to drill all the way through the board to anchor the clips. Not only does this provide a more powerful connection, it also increases torsional stiffness for a more stable ride on seriously steep slopes. Karakoram Ultra Clips offer the tightest possible connection between each board half for no slop between the seam, so you can shred more confidently. Carried over from last season, the Quick Tension Tail Clip attaches to Jones' climbing skins (not included) for easier and more secure skin attachment.

The Split to Rule Them All
Board: Solution 161cm
Bindings: Spark R&D Dyno DH's
Boots: Scarpa Aliens
Rider Weight: 180lbs
Rider Height: 6'0''
Rider Boot Size: 28
Quiver Position: Split - for powder and freeride
My ideal quiver includes:
Powder / Freeride-Freestyle / All-Mountain / Party or Jib / Split Board
I've got a couple splits and this one hands down wins out every time. It's super lightweight which puts me at an advantage on the uphill and still rides incredibly well on the down hill. Plus I've got a Flagship for the resort and the Solution is the split version of that.
My Do-Everything Split:
This split is the split of splits. From the mega light weight (Dan has the weight spec'd in his review) to the over all flex and shape, this board is killer for the backcountry. I've had it for a few season and absolutely love the thing. The only thing I would change is sizing up a little more for slightly better float in deep snow on the uphill and more float on the ride down as well. But if you're after a lightweight set up and an awesome ride, this is the board to go with. I've taken this up Shasta and side slipped 2000 feet of miserable 40 degree ice, ridden sun cupped snow on Rainier, ridden tight lines like Terminal Cancer in Elko and all over the Wasatch. I can't think of another split that I'd rather have had for those days.
I've got mine set up as a hardboot set up. I personally love the ease of use of the set up, but I've also used it with other splitboard bindings like the Voile Speed Rails, etc. To me this board works great for a wide range of set ups.
There are a range of board options and this one might be for you....and it might not. Let's chat to make sure. We can also talk shop on boot, binding and board combos and how each part of the set up effects the others for your specific situation.
I'd encourage you to hit me up via email - firstname.lastname@example.org
(this way I'll get these during off hours)
For the Deepest Days
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have put well over 100 days into my Jones Solution and it is still going very strong. Despite countless encounters with rocks, ice and trees, the base has held up quite well, and is still my favorite split board to ride despite having other, newer options.
The hybrid rocker makes a huge difference on steep uphills while still allowing plenty of float in deep powder. The blunt nose shape allows for easier riding without having to go to a longer board as well, with a more efficient front contact point. Finally, the weight of the board, at 6lbs 5oz, is one of the lighter options (not full carbon) on the market, saving you weight and money. All of these combined make this a great board for someone who is primarily out touring (as opposed to riding the resort) and/or likes to play in big mountain terrain. Its main downside would be for those looking to do a lot of freestyle in the backcountry.
Let me know if you have any questions on this splitboard or anything else related to splitboarding equipment, I'd love to chat!
