2024 Jones Freecarver 6000S Snowboard
The new Freecarver 6000s is a directional freeride board designed to help you carve up the mountain with precision and style. Featuring a medium flex, full camber profile and a tapered directional shape the Freecarver 6000s blends design elements from race, boardercross and freeride boards into a snappy, high performance ride that excels at carving tight turns. The Freecarver 6000s has a short, six meter sidecut radius and a long effective edge. This is a board that you can lean into and rip short radius turns like you were strapped into a merry-go-round. The Freecarver 6000s is built with an Ash veneer topsheet and Biax fiberglass that suck up chatter, a 3D Contour Base 2.0 that improves turn initiation and a hyper fast and durable Sintered 9000 base.
True Camber - A traditional full camber profile that offers the insane edge response of camber without the usual hang-ups. The camber radius tapers into the beveled 3D Contour Base at the tips which releases the edges where they like to hook and balances the pop and directional stability of camber with a looser, less-catchy feel.
Directional Flex Pattern
Forever Flex – All Jones boards are broken in using specialized machinery that mimics extreme riding use to help stabilize the flex and rocker profile of a board for it's lifetime.
Flex Rating – 7/10 (1=Soft, 10=Stiff)
3D Contour Base 2.0 – Moderate 3D-base contours featuring an even balance of 4mm spoon bevel in the nose and 4mm spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point.
Progressive Sidecut – At the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually increasing the sidecut radius towards the contact point delivers smoother turn initiation and exit as the edge tracks in and out of the snow with a less abrupt transition.
Blunt Nose – "How a board glides in powder, crust, corn or any snow more than an inch deep is dictated by it's front contact point and just past it. Next time you are in soft snow watch how much snow comes over the corner of the nose near the contact point. The billowing snow coming out from behind the tip means you are plowing through it which is obviously slowing you down. By adding a blunt nose you get the float benefits of a much longer nose without the 'snow plow' rounded tip and it's extra swing weight." - Jeremy Jones
FSC™ Power Core – Triple-density full wood core featuring hardwood bamboo stringers for added pop and durability plus paulownia for weight savings.
Biax Fiberglass – A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.
Power Sustainable Basalt Stringers – Sustainable stringers made with 100% natural fibers. Basalt stringers improve torsional response and transfer power from under your feet to the tips of the board to help eliminate nose and tail chatter.
Recycled ABS – ABS plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. Jones improves the sustainability of their snowboards by using only recycled plastic.
Sintered 9900 Base – Sintered Ultra High Molecular Weight polyethylene with carbon additives.
Traction Tech 3.0 – Traction Tech 3.0 features three bumps per edge (front binding, board center, back binding). The middle bump is slightly bigger than the outside bumps for better grip.
Oversized Recycled Edges – All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
FSC™ Ash Veneer – Thin wood veneer layer that functions as both a protective topsheet and a global reinforcement layer. The thin wood stringers that make up the wood topsheet provide even flex and suck up chatter from uneven snow conditions.
Bio Resin – All Jones boards are now built with bio-based, renewable epoxy instead of petroleum based epoxy. The raw materials used to make Super Sap Bio-Resin are co-products or waste products of other plant-based industrial processes. Producing Super Sap requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions than conventional epoxy.
Factory Tuned – All Jones snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
Wend Natural Wax – Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
