The Women’s Flagship is a directional freeride board designed for confident women riders who like to ride fast and lay tracks in technical terrain. Power V Basalt stringers add torsional stability while the Spoon 3.0 Nose and Tail deliver mind-bending glide and float. The wood topsheet on the Women’s Flagship has been replaced with Flax Triax Fiberglass for added ECO-performance and the Mellow Magne-traction profile has been improved for added edge grip on hardpack. New for 2018, the Women’s Flagship’s Power Core has been re-profiled for better torsional response between the feet.
This board is Ideal for Freeriding and Fall-Line Freestyle.
The Flagship has a directional shape which increases float and stability at speed. Directional is the classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still giving you plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition. In deep snow, the blunted nose makes sure that less snow comes over the sides of your nose, as that would obviously slow you down. This also means you get the benefits of a longer traditional nose, without the extra weight. Take advantage of the Magne-Traction edges to effortlessly link turns that look and feel nice whether they are at high speeds or slow and controlled. The Magne-Traction serrated edges give great edge hold all over the mountain, especially on hard pack and ice. They turn ice into powder. At the far ends of the progressive sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually increasing the side cut 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.
The directional rocker profile has an under-foot camber with a larger rocker area in the nose than in the tail. The float of the rockered nose improves manoeuvrability while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and response. The slightly rockered tail maintains power and stability but helps to keep the tail catch-free when initiating turns and landing switch.
The new SPOON 3D-base contours were specifically designed to provide next-level glide. The smooth radius of the SPOON nose and tail edges reduce friction at the contact points. With less friction and catch in the tips, you can maintain more speed, flow and float. The freeride-focused Spoon 3.0 3D-base contour features an even balance of 7mm spoon bevel in the nose and 7mm spoon bevel in the tail. The spoon bevel starts at the rocker point.
A mid-stiff flex will ensure precise response and lively feel.
The triple-density full wood New Power Core features hardwood bamboo stringers for added pop and durability plus Paulownia for weight savings. Natural Pre-Cured Power V Basalt stringers transfer power from under your feet to the tips of the board to help eliminate nose and tail chatter. Multi-axis stitched Triax fibreglass laminate with FLAX offers a precise and responsive ride in any terrain or snow condition with sustainable and high-performance dampening characteristics. The sintered 9900 Base is made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and Carbon. This ultra-fast base is easy to repair thanks to the UHMW-PE. All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability. The Rubber edge dampening and ABS Sidewall material is made of 100 % recycled material. Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax as well as factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain. By flip flopping the base graphic colour, P-Tex waste is drastically reduced by increasing the material yield.
