Jones Snowboards 2016
The hashtag #ihearthovercrafting is no joke. Supreme float and rally car-like handling has earned the Hovercraft a cult following. Riders around the world swear by the Hovercraft’s nimble maneuverability as this power-packed board deftly handles blower, crud or crust one and the same. The blunt nose and directional rocker of the Hovercraft provide the float, while the stiff tail and Mellow Magne-Traction lock in stability through the bumps. For catchfree slashing, the base along the tail edges of the Hovercraft are beveled up one degree for more playful control. New for 2016, the Hovercraft’s bamboo wood topsheet features burned ‘no-ink’ logo graphics.
Directional Rocker – Hovercraft
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. "My experience is that most falls in freeriding start from the nose of the board – you either go over the bars in powder, the nose gets caught under a weird crust and tosses you, or you hit a hard tranny at the contact point of the tip and get bucked. Directional Rocker eliminates most of these falls." – Jeremy Jones
