The Hovercraft Split 2.0 is a versatile all-terrain splitboard made for slashing pow, bombing chutes and slaloming trees. Featuring a tapered directional shape and a long sidecut, it charges in any condition and offers surprisingly diverse performance for its compact size. This is a nimble and explosive splitboard that will let you tour and ride in deep pow all day without burning out your back leg.
The good times never stop with the Hovercraft 2.0. Powder, tight tree runs, chutes and, above all, fun are the top priorities here.
The Tapered Directional Shape is the classic, most versatile snowboard shape. The pop is concentrated in the tail and provides ample float and control in all terrain and snow conditions. Taper means a narrower tail than the nose, and this provides more floatation. In deep snow, you'll enjoy less snow being carried back over the sides of the nose thanks to the Blunt Nose. This means you get the benefits of a longer traditional nose without the extra weight. Traction Tech 3.0, the corrugated edge, ensures the best grip in all snow conditions.
The Directional Rocker consists of a camber between the bindings and a larger rocker at the nose than at the tail. This keeps the board extremely manoeuvrable in pow and gives it additional buoyancy. The camber offers great edge hold and fast power transmission. The slightly rockered tail increases playfulness. The freeride-focused 3D Base Contour 3.0 comes with a balanced 7 mm upturn in the nose and tail. The upward bend commences at the rocker.
The medium flex combines response and playfulness.
The FCS™ Control Split Core is a double-density solid wood core with paulownia and poplar stringers with a 2:1 ratio. The biax fibreglass provides a forgiving, playful ride. Bio resin is plant-based and is used instead of petroleum-based epoxy, making production a little more environmentally friendly. The material of the sintered 8000 Base is made of UHMW-PE and carbon. It is fast, easy to repair and absorbs wax excellently. The Freeride Freestyle Insert Pack allows you to ride the board with a centre stance or set back. Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved sustainable production. The rubber for cushioning the edges and the ABS in the sidewalls is made from 100 % recycled materials. All Jones boards are 'ready to shred' and are waxed at the factory with natural WEND wax, as well as slightly rounded at the tip and tail to be ready to go on the mountain right after the shop. For a higher material yield, Jones swaps the colours of the base, reducing waste generated in production.
The Solution Split comes with Karakoram UltraClips 2.0 and Tip Locks. The adjustable tension of the Ultra Clips brings the two halves of your splitboard together unsurpassed. Stainless steel reinforcements are embedded in the nose and tail for increased tip resistance.
