The Solution splitboard from Jones Snowboards is widely known for its unique performance on any terrain or snow condition. The blunt nose, directional rocker profile and inner/outer edge Mellow Magne-traction keep you locked in and gliding fast no matter where you roam. The ECO-plastic top sheet is made from castor beans and is snow-repellent so snow sticks to your board less. New for 2017, the Solution features the new Bolt-less Bridge which eliminates base hardware, stainless steel tip and tail reinforcement plates for added durability plus Karakoram Ultra Clips for improved torsional board lock.

The Solution 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 naturally 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.
Quick Tension Tail features a built-in climbing skin tension system using pre-cut notch that eliminates the need for a traditional skin tail clip.
A stiff flex will ensure very precise response and control.
The new Bolt-less Bridge eliminates split clip attachment hardware from the base of the board by re-profiling the wood core at the clips. The wood core under the clips is thicker providing better torsional stiffness and a more powerful connection at the split clips. The Master Core is a dual-density full premium wood poplar and paulownia core designed to maximise lightness and dampening. Multi-axis stitched Triax fibreglass laminate offers a precise and responsive ride in any terrain or snow conditions. 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. The ECO-Plastic Topsheet is made from Castor beans. This biomaterial is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant, and water/snow repellent. The New Karakoram ULTRA Clips are lower profile, stronger and increase compression between board halves. 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. The Carbon Stringers add torsional stiffness for improved response and increased pop. The carbon layer keeps flex profile dimensionally stable for a consistent ride for the lifetime of the board.
This board is also available in 'Wide' version. These are wider than normal boards and developed especially for snowboarders with large feet (EU size 44+) to avoid too much overhang of the boots. Wider boards also give you better float in powder.
Snowboarding is not my job, it’s my life. Jones Snowboard founder Jeremy Jones explains so much in so few words. He wanted to create the ultimate snowboarding gear that lived up to even the highest standards, and he has done exactly that. The company prides itself on giving back to the wild places they so dearly cherish through actions such as 1% For the Planet. There is nothing we don't love about Jeremy Jones and his vision."
