There are few things in life as perfect as a new snowboard. And there are few snowboards in life as perfect as the new 2014 Jones Snowboards Hovercraft Splitboard.
If trekking up through the backcountry in search of pristine powder is the name of your game, then you need a splitboard. And you really can’t find a splitboard as top-notch as the Jones Hovercraft Splitboard.
The board takes inspiration from old school directional boards with a long rockered nose that makes for dreamy float on deep days. The camber under foot and Magne-Traction help keep things safe, sturdy, and stable when the fresh snow is lacking and crusty traverses or hard pack is all that is available. The long nose makes hiking easy when you split the board, slip on the skins, and try to find the good stuff.
The Jones Hovercraft Splitboard has plenty of camber between the feet. The shortened tail of the board gives you even more control over it. The open radius sidecut further adds to the board’s all around stability.
Biax fiberglass opens up the flex and makes for an extremely fast, yet smooth, ride. A sintered base also improves overall speed.
The Jones Hovercraft Splitboard is an absolutely gorgeous board that features an eco-friendly wood topsheet and an old school shape. It has the perfect set-up for a touring rider.
