The Ultracraft is a high performance alternative freeride board that carves piste and rips pow like a race board.

Featuring the same shape as the Hovercraft, only built with premium materials, the Ultracraft has no top speed railing a turn in smooth snow. The rocker nose delivers epic float in pow while the stubby, stiff tail and long sidecut offer powerful board control when moving fast. The 3D Contour Base 3.0 features a spooned nose and tail edges for improved float plus turn fluidity. The Ultracraft also features our Ultra Core for lightweight pop and a Flax Topsheet plus Basalt Power Stringers for supreme torsional response, reduced board chatter and improved sustainability.

Rider Type: Freeride Powder

Shape: Directional

Flex: Stiff  

Rocker: Rocker Nose /  Camber Under Feet  / Rocker Tail

Ability Level:  Advanced / Expert

FEATURES:

Rocker Type

Directional Rocker – A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and camber between the bindings. The rockered tip floats the board’s nose and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and response. A slightly rockered tail maintains the power and stability of a traditional board but helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.

Flex

Directional Flex Pattern

Flex Rating – 8 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Forever Flex – All Jones boards are broken in using specialized machinery that mimics extreme riding use to help stabilize the flex and rocker profile of a board for it's lifetime.

Shape

3D Contour Base 3.0 – Freeride focused 3D Contour Base featuring a 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose and 0 - 7mm of spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point.

Progressive Sidecut – At the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually increasing the sidecut 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.

Blunt Nose – "How a board glides in powder, crust, corn or any snow more than an inch deep is dictated by it's front contact point and just past it. Next time you are in soft snow watch how much snow comes over the corner of the nose near the contact point. The billowing snow coming out from behind the tip means you are plowing through it which is obviously slowing you down. By adding a blunt nose you get the float benefits of a much longer nose without the 'snow plow' rounded tip and it's extra swing weight." - Jeremy Jones

Core

FSC™ Ultra Core – The new Ultra Core is Jones' lightest wood core yet. Made from mostly paulownia with specially positioned poplar stringers for better durability and turn power.

Ultra Construction – The Ultra series is the redefinition of what it takes to build a snowboard. Jones Ultra boards combine innovative construction techniques with premium materials for revolutionary results.

Laminates

Triax Fiberglass – Multi-axis, stitched fiberglass laminate that offers a precise and responsive ride in any ­terrain or snow conditions.

Power Sustainable Basalt Stringers – Sustainable stringers made with 100% natural fibers. Basalt stringers improve torsional response and transfer power from under your feet to the tips of the board to help eliminate nose and tail chatter.

Sidewalls

Recycled ABS – ABS plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. Jones improves the sustainability of their snowboards by using only recycled plastic.

Base

Sintered 9900 Base – Sintered Ultra High Molecular Weight polyethylene with carbon additives.

Flip Flop Base – Flip-Flop bases improve board sustainability by reducing p-tex waste.

Edges

Oversized Recycled Edges – All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.

Traction Tech 1.0 – Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Traction Tech improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board.

Topsheet

Sustainable Flax Top – Flax fiber represents the future of sustainable snowboard manufacturing as this natural fiber is lighter than carbon and fiberglass and also 100% bio-sourced. Flax also uses less resin in the board layup which saves more weight and synthetic materials. Flax fibers are used in place of a traditional topsheet and offer a damp ride that absorbs chatter at any speed.

Additional Features

Bio Resin – All Jones boards are now built with bio-based, renewable epoxy instead of petroleum based epoxy. The raw materials used to make Super Sap Bio-Resin are co-products or waste products of other plant-based industrial processes. Producing Super Sap requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions than conventional epoxy.

Factory Tuned – All Jones snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.

Wend Natural Wax – Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
