The new Jonessnowboards.com site is up featuring Jeremy’s insightful blog, in-depth product detail, videos and team info
JonesSnowboards.com offers riders a first look at the highly anticipated, debut snowboard line created by snowboarding icon, Jeremy Jones. The aim of the new site is to add another dimension to the brand’s open relationship with its consumers and retailers as the snowboard line goes into full production mode for its debut winter 2010 release.
“We’re having a very exciting year between the launch of Jones Snowboards, the building of the team and filming for Deeper,” says Jeremy. “Jonessnowboards.com will keep riders involved in all the action while we await the first shipment of boards this fall.” Product information takes centre stage, with pages packed with descriptions, technical diagrams, and Jeremy’s own design notes affording riders the opportunity to discover the performance technologies and design philosophies that shaped each of the four models that make up the 10/11 Jones Snowboards line-up. Features such as Mellow Magne-traction, Directional Rocker and Cam-Rock are all explained in Jeremy’s words along with his commentary on why certain board models benefit from the chosen design features.
Riders hungry for more info are only a couple clicks from an answer at Jonessnowboards.com as the forum allows the curious freerider to ask Jeremy direct questions. Trip reports from the team riders will also offer a firsthand perspective of how conditions and terrain affect the team’s quiver choice. Exclusive photos and videos will bring the boards to life as Jeremy and the team shred on the ‘Flagship’ freeride gun one day and backcountry jib on the ‘Mountain Twin’ freestyle deck the next.
There will be no shortage of exciting news to share the site, as the team has been freeriding around the world this winter. Jeremy, Forrest Shearer and Jonaven Moore have been out splitboard testing on the Jones’ ‘Solution’ while filming for the September release of Deeper. After a productive month in the Sierras and Tetons, the crew heads north to Canada and Alaska to lay tracks in the big mountains this spring. Having taken third at the Freeride World Tour stop in Squaw Valley, Ryland Bell will take on some of the world’s best freeriders at the Nissan Xtreme by Swatch in Verbier, Switzerland in late March. Ralph Backstrom just finished his contest season winning second place overall in the North Face Masters series. Both Ralph and Ryland are riding the Jones ‘Flagship’ in contests this season. Follow the team blog, to keep up with the team’s latest adventures in the mountains.
Expect worldwide distribution starting this September for winter 2010/11. Learn more about Jones Snowboards at JonesSnowboards.com.
