Jones Snowboards 2011-2012

04 Feb, 2011

Find your line and ride it – that’s certainly what Jeremy Jones did when it came to designing and starting his own snowboard company last year.  In year two, Jones Snowboards looks stronger than ever with freeriding boards that bring out the pure hearts of riders.  With such a big name and team behind the brand, the boards are the soul of snowboarding and certainly stand out from the crowd at SIA.  Year two also means progression for the boards, smaller sizes for the ladies/smaller riders and more splitboards for the riders going deeper into the mountains.

The new L series gives smaller riders options for snowboards like the flagship 154cm, solution splitboard 154cm, mountain twin splitboard 154cm.  Jones will also be releasing sofgoods with t-shirts, hoodies and trucker hats with a couple different Jones designs on them.

    “Magne-traction” on a Jones? I always thought that was a proprietary Mervin/Lib term. Is that not the case?

    Richard, great question. Jones has the approval from mervin to use magne traction on their boards. Smokin also has magne traction.

    Has anybody seen the patent for magne traction?

    No, cause it doesnt exist. Comclovin had a write up about it a while back.
