Jeremy Jones has put a lot of effort again into a full range of shiny boards for 2014/2015 winter, but also in some fine backpacks and accessories. All this is tailored for you to enjoy the backcountry experience to the fullest, but why not the park as well. Wherever you go, keep in mind what the brand's motto says: "the journey is the reward".
Intelligent designs, innovative materials and bombproof construction are the heart, soul, skin and bones of every board in the Jones line-up. Their goal is to build high performance and durable boards that are a direct reflection of the passion for snowboarding Jeremy Jones has, day-in day-out. Snow or sunshine, pow or bulletproof, in the trees, the steeps, or the park. With a team including riders like Mikka Hast, Mitch Toelderer and Forrest Shearer, Jeremy has a lot of additional input as far as R&D is concerned. Here's a selection of their next winter's gear.

[part title="Jones Carbon Solution"]
New in the range this year, the Carbon Solution has taken from his big brother the Flagship, to help you dominate every type of terrain going your way, but maybe with a slightly less power and engagement that would be required on the high end Flagship. Also very light with the carbon construction, it's also called this way because the simple design on the topsheet negates the use of non sustainable materials.
One of the most freestyle board of the range associated with a split, this combination sounds epic to me! And it's new for next winter. The Aviator is a high-performance directional freestyle board for riders that rail carves and boost big in all-conditions. The nimble handling and supersonic acceleration of the Aviator result from the new 3D Power Camber profile. 3D Power Camber is an innovative positive camber profile that offers the insane edge response of camber without the usual hang-ups.

On the left you can see the brand new Jones Solution, which is obviously a less pricy and more easy to ride version of the previous 'Carbon Solution'. Could be a good choice to get better and better at charging the deep terrain.
Carbon Flagship Split
The top of the range board by Jones, made into a split, how does that sound? If you want the real backcountry adventure, from bottom to top and top to bottom, you won't probably need anything else than this. The carbon topsheet and specially positioned carbon stringers combine to produce a light and lively board that’s stupid fast edge-to-edge, yet damp as your footbeds after a day shredding bell to bell. Available from 158 to 168W.
[part title="Jones Hovercraft"]
The exclusive powder board designed by Jeremy. The blunt nose and directional rocker of the Hovercraft keep you partying in the pow, while the stiff tail and Mellow Magne-Traction lock in stability when the fresh tracks are gone. For catchfree slashing, the base along the tail edges is beveled up for more playful control.
There is a good reason why you’ll catch Jeremy Jones riding the Hovercraft or the Hovercraft Split on more days than not. You can float, air it out and run it out all on the same rocket that makes effortless turns. Because the stubby Hovercraft packs so much float in such a small package, it’s designed to be sized 6-8 cm shorter than your average board. Which is a good thing when you hike on your split, less length meaning less effort.
[part title="Jones Aviator"]
As said before on the Aviator Split, this board is a high-performance directional freestyle machine but not only that, it's got this very all mountain attitude to it. The 3D Power Camber is an innovative positive camber profile that offers instant edge response without being too punishing when not precise on the edge: the 3D base beveling releases the edges where they like to hook which balances the pop and directional stability of camber with a looser, less-catchy feel.
[part title="Jones Mountain Twins"]
Also present in last year's range, the Mountain Twin has also a freestyle soul but with the eyes of a true mountain company like Jones. The proof is in the fact that the board won a few awards and the latest version of it couldn't be more efficient. Early rise tip and tail give the Mountain Twin float and finesse in soft snow while camber underfoot combined with Mellow Magne-Traction give the Mountain Twin snap and hold on hard pack.
[part title="Jones Powder Surfer"]
Jones' version of the No Board trend, the Powder Surfer is something you want to have fun with as soon as you see it. Not much technical secrets hidden there, just pure, good vibe of riding the untouched terrain and draw soft lines on it. Booya!

[part title="Jones Ultra Aviator"]
Another declination of the über popular Aviator, the Ultra Aviator pushes the envelop a little further with its pristine construction and advanced technology. But the essential is, whether your flight plan includes cliff drops or stacked park jumps, the Aviator is lightning fast edge to edge and designed to inspire confident take-offs and graceful landings.
An ISPO Award winner this year, the Ultracraft Split has taken its inspiration from the Hovercraft - the floating machine, and got a little further into construction, material and lightness. The huge nose and pintail will take you up and down the faces like no other. You simply have to try it.
[part title="Jones Women Solution"]
As you guessed, a split and female version of the new Solution board: this is a backcountry workhorse built to blaze a trail into a lifetime of untracked sunrises and sunsets. With a Solution in your board quiver you can explore the endless beauty of the backcountry and kiss lift lines and moguls goodbye.
A little less demanding than the Flagship, but with a fantastic float and good edge for any type of terrain and any type of conditions. The Explorer won't let you down, whether it's about going up splitted, or down united!
[part title="Jones Women Hovercraft"]
A true pow gun for the ladies ! The blunt nose and directional rocker of the Hovercraft deliver supreme float in the soft stuff while the pint-sized dimensions keep the Hovercraft fast and maneuverable in tight situations. And what a look!
If you're a freestyling girl with a bad freeride habit, I guess this is for you: twin-profile, directional flex, rockered tip and tail and traditional camber between the feet. Mellow Magne-Traction keeps the Twin Sister on edge and helps lock in every turn. Anywhere, anytime!
