The Solution splitboard is widely known for it's unrivaled performance on any terrain or snow condition. The blunt nose, directional rocker profile and inner/outer edge Mellow Magne-traction keep you locked in and gliding fast no matter where you roam. The ECO-plastic topsheet is made from castor beans and is snow-repellent so snow sticks to your board less. New for 2017, the Solution features our new Bolt-less Bridge which eliminate base hardware, stainless steel tip and tail reinforcement plates for added durability plus Karakoram Ultra Clips for improved torsional board lock.

If you're looking to get into the backcountry to take mellow pow runs and carve lazy turns, this isn't what you want. However, if you use your split as dedicated equipment for accessing remote lines that require absolute focus and pinpoint precision, the Jones Carbon Solution Splitboard is arguably the highest performance split you can strap to your feet. It takes everything that's made the regular Solution a legend, and makes it more aggressive. The carbon fiber construction sheds weight, while increasing the stiffness and damping, turning this into a turbo-charged beast that devours the gnarliest lines you'll ever step to. The carbon fiber topsheet and carbon stringers keep the weight down, while providing a stiffer, damper, more responsive ride. The carbon fiber topsheet looks like it belongs in a race car, which would be a surprisingly accurate way to think of the Carbon Solution's handling. It's not designed to be forgiving-- instead, hold the throttle wide open and drive it like your life's on the line. Naturally, the weight reduction pays dividends on the skin track as well. Camber between the feet keeps the Solution planted at mach speed, and there's slightly more rocker in the nose than the tail, for unreal float, without sacrificing the ability to ride switch. Mellow Magne-Traction places bumps along the edge, for insane edgehold on windblown, exposed lines, while the blunted nose keeps swing weight down for quicker turns. Triple-density wood creates an ultralight and incredibly strong core, and the sintered base is extra-absorbent for long-lasting speed and tough for durability. Unlike traditional clips, the included Karakoram board clips actively pull both halves of the board together, which means less chatter and better response.
