You've witnessed Jeremy Jones destroy insane Alaska spines, thread through the tightest of couloirs, and progress backcountry riding to the loftiest of heights. Now it's time to get yours with the Jones Solution Splitboard. As Jeremy Jones' go-to board for backcountry excursions and variable snow conditions, the Solution Splitboard kills huge vertical ascents and descents with ease, thanks in part to Mellow Magne-Traction edges. Magne-Traction works like a serrated knife edge--cutting through chop, chunder, and ice with precision. Realizing that side-hilling or traversing can be a difficult task on a splitboard, Jones has incorporated Magne-Traction down the middle of the board itself for greater edge hold when split into touring mode. A directional hybrid rocker/camber flex combines the best of both rocker and camber to deliver superior float, edge grip, and stability, There's more rocker at the tip than the tail, to help you float through super deep snow without submerging your nose underneath. The nose itself is blunted to prevent snow from billowing or plowing, for increased float without added length or swing weight. Camber underfoot adds improved grip on variable snow conditions and improves edge-to-edge response. A slightly rockered tail maintains the powerful and stable feel of a traditional board, but it keeps the tail from hanging up when initiating turns or landing switch. Within the guts of this bad boy, you'll find a full wood core made of poplar and beech for solid snap. Carbon stringers are incorporated to improve pop and torsional stiffness, subsequently increasing the longevity of the flex profile. This board will exhibit the same precision and playfulness on day one as it does one season down the road. A sintered base, courtesy of the folks at Nidecker, adds carbon nano particles for better glide characteristics. Rounding out this stick's impressive list of features are state-of-the-art aluminum tip and tail protectors for robust durability ...
Backcountry conditions aren't always knee deep powder, so The Solution from Jones Snowboards uses Magne-traction edges to slice through crust and crud, as well as that sweet, sweet freshness. Directional rocker matched with camber underfoot offers a plush ride in all conditions. Go find a new line at your old mountain!
