    Go further, slay harder.

    Featherweight on the way up, rock solid on the descent, the Jones Ultracraft Splitboard is designed for crushing high alpine assaults, bottomless powder runs, and steep, technical lines. Its incredibly lightweight construction allows you to venture deeper into the backcountry with less effort, while its solid build and floaty design help you check off lines you've been dreaming about for years.

    Camber underfoot provides edge hold and stability on packed snow and sketchy skin tracks, while a long rockered nose keeps it afloat effortlessly in powder and the short tail makes it highly maneuverable in deep snow. Looking inside this hard-charging split, the Ultra ISO-Core shaves serious weight for the long skin up, without sacrificing structural integrity. This triple-density wood core is reinforced with ISO-Core, which is a foam-fiberglass composite that's as stiff as any wood, except 15% lighter. Plus, it's reinforced with hardwood stringers along the edges for increased impact-resistance and powerful response. Trusted by road biking pros, TeXtreme carbon fiber is incredibly 20-30% lighter than traditional carbon fibers, yet doesn't sacrifice stiffness or strength.

    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. Trusted by World Cup ski racers, the Ultra base is faster and tougher than any other base you've ever experienced. Another important feature is Traction Tech along the inside and outside edges. These small serrations substantially increase edgehold when you're skinning up icy skin tracks and shredding down icy, hardpacked terrain.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I just warrantied my second Jones carbon board, the first one delaminated around 60 tours, the second broke a sidewall after barely 30 tours. The flashy carbon topsheet is extremely fragile, it had scratches on it before it left the living room, it also looks really tempting to steal from your ski rack. The profile, weight and general concept of these boards are great, but the moment the topsheet starts to delaminate from even the most minor abrasion, snow begins to pack beneath it and accelerate the process exponentially. I appreciate the replacement warranty, but after breaking two boards with normal use I’m hesitant to rely on these in the BC and that doesn’t include the environmental impact of going through a board every season. I would recommend giving Jones a few more years to refine the construction quality before dropping 1500$ on one, or trusting your life on it ten miles from the trailhead.

    The Ferarri of splitboards

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have never owned a Ferarri, but one can imagine. Light, fast, agile, and a true fighter. The Ultracraft splitboard brought new life to my riding. It floats like a cork in a storm. Little bunny drops in the powder have never been more fun; the board fights back up to the surface and keeps you balanced. The board has a surfy feel to it that I consider playful as a new puppy. On the way up, it is a beast. It is short and light; the switch backs come and go with ease.

    By far the most fun I have had on a board.

    I loved it so much I broke it, and Jeremy Jones honored the warranty and replaced my favorite thing. I bought the board on Back Country.com. BC.com did not help really with the warranty, claimed not their business.

    Top of the line quality and design

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I got this splitboard for my boyfriend for Christmas and he was thrilled. He went from riding a Voile splitboard that was in his opinion pretty good to riding this one and being blown away by the weight (or lack thereof), the brilliant design of the transition components, and overall quality. The ride feels equivalent to his resort board. He says it's totally worth the cost (even though he didn't pay for it).

    Board: Ultracraft Split 156cm
    Rider Weight: 180lbs
    Rider Height: 6'0''
    Rider Boot Size: 10
    Quiver Position: Split Board

    My ideal quiver includes:
    Powder / Freeride-Freestyle / All-Mountain / Party or Jib / Split Board

    Quiver:
    For me the Ultracraft split is a do everything type split in the backcountry. I mean, no one goes out in search or hardpack and ice when touring and but if you find yourself doing some splitboard mountaineering and the conditions are variable, this is a great board to have.

    A Dream for touring:
    I've ridden the Ultracraft and loved it. It had a better feel to it than the Hovercraft, I'd describe it as a more precise feel. Like the Hovercraft, it rode super well in deeper snow, with the nose almost impossible to sink.... it just wants to pop back up to the surface that to the wide rockered nose. It also handles tight chutes and steep slopes well.

    Size:
    This is where things get wonky. I've rode a 156cm Ultracraft and enjoyed it a ton, for splitboarding this is where I should size up even more to the 160cm Ultracraft split. But sizing Hovercraft/Ultracraft splits can be tricky.

    Board Selection:
    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 - jdowns@backcountry.com
    (this way I'll get these during off hours)
