Description

2023 Jones Ultra Flagship Snowboard

The Ultra Flagship is a seriously stiff, competition-ready freeride board designed to crush steep terrain at top speed. Built with Fusion Carbon construction, the Ultra Flagship features a 3D Contour Base 3.0, an Ash wood veneer topsheet plus multiple layers of carbon stringers that offer supreme stability at speed and eliminate chatter in rough snow. The Ultra Flagship’s tapered shape sinks the tail in pow for better float and quicker turns and the Traction Tech 3.0 edges deliver exceptional edge control. For supreme torsional response the Ultra Flagship’s Ultra Core has bamboo stringers along the edges, and for unmatched speed it’s built with Jones' fastest Ultra Base that comes factory waxed with multiple wax types for better glide in variable snow temperatures.

Camber Profile

Directional Rocker  A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and camber between the bindings. The rockered tip floats the board’s nose and improves maneuverability 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.

Flex

Flex Rating  10/10 (1=Soft,10=Stiff)

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.

Shape

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

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

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.

12.5mm Taper  The tapered shape sinks the tail in pow for better float and quicker turns.

Core

V-Core  Boards with V-Cores are slightly softer in the very center of the board for improved maneuverability and stiffer through the tip and tail for stability and pop.

Ultra Construction  The Ultra series is the redefinition of what it takes to build a snowboard. Jones Ultra boards combine innovative construction techniques with premium materials for revolutionary results.

Power Core  Triple-density full wood core featuring hardwood bamboo stringers for added pop and durability plus paulownia for weight savings.

Laminates

Fusion Carbon  This cutting edge board lay-up process is the latest evolution of Jones's previous Fusion Tech construction and reduces board weight and improves durability by combining board materials in two stages.

Power Plates  New wood core design featuring specially positioned dual-layer plates on both sides of the insert packs that help transfer energy, enhance board response and improve edge impact durability. The bottom layer of the Power Plate is made from super responsive and sustainable Bamboo. The top layer is made from rubber to improve dampening and reduce edge chatter under your bindings.

Sidewalls

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.

Base

Ultra Base  Jones exclusive base material that sets new performance standards. Lab results and snow testing show 25% better wax absorption, better glide in warm/wet snow and better durability for grinding. They’ve also doubled the amount of wax and mixed multiple wax types for a faster factory wax in a wider range of conditions.

Edges

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

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.

Topsheet

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.

Additional Features

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

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.

Binding Compatibility

2 x 4 Insert Pattern

Float Pack Inserts  Float Pack Inserts give you the option of a super setback stance for guaranteed float on the deepest days.
