Jones Snowboards Hovercraft Splitboard
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Shred untracked powder all season without a lift in sight on the Jones Hovercraft Splitboard. Unlike other super-stiff, long splitboards, the Hovercraft has a softer flex and shorter length for a surfy feel when you're in the white room. Of course it also has Jones' CamRock profile so it still rips hardpack when you come across sunbaked sections. If pure powder bliss is what you seek, look no further than the Hovercraft Split. Camber underfoot provides edge hold and stability on hardpack, while a long rockered nose keeps it afloat effortlessly in powder and the short tail makes it highly maneuverable in deep snow. Mellow Magne-Traction improves edge hold by adding multiple contact points along the running length of the board, giving you insane grip on icy slopes. Magne-Traction is also featured on the inside edges for reliable edge hold on sketchy skin tracks. Biax glass gives it a forgiving flex for surfy carve and easy turn initiation. Jones replaced traditional plastics in the topsheet with wood in order to dampen the ride for a a chatter-free feel, and decrease the use of toxic, unsustainable materials. The all-wood core offers a snappy, even flex and lightweight strength, and the blunt nose allows the board to plane more smoothly in powder. Unlike traditional clips, the included Karakoram board clips actively pull both halves of the board together, which means less chatter and better response. It's then finished off with a fast and durable Sintered 7200 base.
