Jones Snowboards 2010-2011
31 Mar, 2010
For over two decades we’ve seen Jeremy Jones dropping into steeps, chutes and backcountry that continues to blow our minds. So it’s no surprise that when launching his own snowboard company, Jeremy Jones would give as much dedication, fluidity and passion behind it as he does in his snowboarding. 2010-2011 is the year of the Jones, bringing back freeriding into the souls of riders and introducing a love for boards meant to charge the mountain.
All of the Jones boards are manufactured by Nidecker with the Jeremy Jones touch and 1% of sales are contributed to environmental groups around the world.
For technology, Jones snowboards uses a directional rocker which is a hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern with more tip rocker than tail rocker and a slight camber between the bindings. On the mountain twin, Jones uses camrock which is a rocker/camber flex pattern with an evenly balanced tip and tail rocker with slight camber between the bindings (seen on YES and Nidecker models as well). Jones also kept with a mellow magne traction to improve edge grip with multiple contact points along the running length of the board.
