DESCRIPTION

The new Hovercraft is a modern manifestation of the cult classic alternative freeride shape that features our most advanced 3D shape tech and groundbreaking recycled materials.

The Hovercraft’s new shape keeps the floaty nose, compact tail, directional rocker profile and long sidecut that made the original model so nimble and stable, but its been supercharged with 12mm of spoon bevel in the nose for lightning fast turn initiation and a glide accentuating, speed boosting 3D hull in the tail. The new Hovercraft is also built with recycled materials from old snowboards making it the most responsibly produced board in the Jones line. Now a unisex model with sizes to fit riders of every body type, the one and only Hovercraft is ready to win the hearts of powder slashers and all-mountain rippers the world over once again.

 

PRODUCT DETAILS

DESIGNED FOR: Intermediate - Expert / All-Mountain, Freeride, Backcountry, Pow

    SHAPE: Directional 

    FLEX:  Stiff - 7/10

    BASE: Sintered 8000 Base

    CAMBER PROFILE: Directional Rocker

     

    BINDING MOUNT: 4x2 12-pack

    FEATURES:

    • Directional Rocker

      A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker than tail rocker and camber between the bindings. The rockered tips floats the board’s nose and improves manoeuvrability while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and response. A slightly rockered tail maintains the power and stability of a traditional board but helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.

    • 3D Contour Base 3.0
      Freeride focused 3D Contour Base featuring 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose and 0 to 7mm of spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point.

    • 100% of our adult models feature high-end materials, construction technologies and sustainable manufacturing process. We accept no compromises in producing the most durable and sustainable snowboarding gear.

    • Sintered 8000 Base
      New super durable material made from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and carbon. Base is easily repairable, highly wax absorbent and wicked fast.

    • Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.

    • Biax fiberglass: A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.

    • Bio Resin is a bio-based epoxy made with 27% plant-based carbon instead of petroleum-based carbon. The organic raw materials used to make bio-resin are co-products or waste products of plant-based industrial processes. Bio-resin requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions to produce than conventional epoxy.

    • All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.

    • ABS Plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. We improve the sustainability of our snowboards by using only recycled plastic.

    • All Jones Snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.

    • Forever Flex is a new manufacturing process that helps stabilise the flex and rocker of a board for its lifetime.

    • Sustainable Flax Top

    • Traction Tech

    • Reclaimed Core: High performance poplar paulownia wood core featuring specially positioned embedded stringers made from reclaimed snowboards.

    • All Jones snowboards and splitboards are backed with a 2 year warranty + 1 free year extension.
