2023 Jones Ultra Prodigy Snowboard
The Ultra Prodigy is Jones' new all-mountain directional twin built for hard-charging kids whose skills and technical prowess on two edges defies their age. Super charged in every way, the Ultra Prodigy is the latest evolution of Jones' belief that talented youth rippers deserve every bit of board performance that adults do. The Ultra Prodigy’s directional twin shape and True Camber profile offer versatile maneuverability everywhere from the trees to the terrain park, while the spooned nose+tail edges on the 3D Contour Base 1.0 allow for fluid ‘no catch’ turn initiation. The Ultra Prodigy is designed to be a little narrower than most youth boards so small-footed riders can learn to rail turns with the board up on edge. For racing around and beating parents down the mountain, the Ultra Prodigy has a Power Core, Basalt Power Stringers and a Sintered 8000 base. It’s also a little stiffer than the standard Prodigy for going big and riding fast.
True Camber – Pop, power, and stability - it's full camber, baby.
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 – 6/10 (1=Soft,10=Stiff)
3D Base Contour 1.0 – Subtle yet effective 3D-base contours featuring an even balance of 2mm spoon bevel in the nose and 2mm spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts just after 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
V-Core – Boards with V-Cores are slightly softer in the very center of the board for improved manouverability and stiffer through the tip and tail for stability and pop.
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.
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.
Flip Flop Base – Flip-Flop bases improve board sustainability by reducing p-tex waste.
Sintered 8000 Base – New super durable material made from Ultra High Molecular Weight polyethylene and carbon.
Traction Tech 1.0 – Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Traction Tech improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board.
Oversized Recycled Edges – All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
Eco-Plastic Topsheet – Bio-plastic topsheet made from Castor beans. This eco-material is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant and water/snow repellent (snow sticks less to topsheet).
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.
