Jones 2020 Snowboards Overview

 

 

If you are reading this I’m sure you know exactly what Jones snowboards are all about. Although they have a board for most situations, there is definitely and emphasis on freeride and powder boards.

Other 2020 brand overviews: Burton, Capita, Lib-Tech and Ride.

Jones Camber Profiles

Directional Rocker

Camber under your feet, with a little bit of rocker on the tail and a bigger rocker section on the nose of the board.

Camrock

Rocker on the nose and tail, with camber between your feet.

Power Camber

Close to a traditional camber profile, though out towards the nose and tail the camber blends to flat, and the base is beveled up 1 degree to get less of a catchy feel, but still with the benefits of camber.

Christenson Surf Camber/Rocker

A big rockered nose, camber under your feet and a small rocker section in the tail.

Contour Bases

On the majority of Jones boards, they have a 3d base shape on the nose and tail. Similar to the Bataleon’s 3BT, Burton’s Spoon or Arbor’s Uprise fenders, it helps to make turns smoother, more float in deep snow and a less catchy feel. It comes in 4 levels, 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0. 1.0 has just a couple of millimetres of lift, while the 4.0 has a maximum of 7mm.

There are also Ultra versions of boards, that have faster bases, lighter weight and a bigger price tag.

Base Materials

In general, the higher the cost of the board, the better and faster the base material will be.

Extruded Base

The simplest base material, extruded is the slowest on snow, but it keeps the cost of the board down and is the easiest to repair. Not found on many Jones boards, which is a good thing.

Sintered Bases

The harder and faster material, that soaks up wax well and when maintained (waxed) will be much quicker. It is available in different levels, the higher the number the quicker it will ride.

Ultra Base

Another step up from the Sintered base, it supposedly is 25% better at absorbing wax, and has a better glide in wet snow in warm conditions.

Jones 2020 Snowboards

Jones Frontier

Jones Frontier 2020

Probably the most forgiving mens board in the Jones lineup, it has a relatively soft flex, a forgiving ride but with enough camber to keep it stable and poppy without being stiff. With the lowest level of base contour, the edges are lifted just a little bit to help make the turns smooth and easy. Still has the serrated edges for extra edge hold, and is the cheapest price for a mens Jones board. Used to be known as the Jones Explorer.
