    Took my hovercraft to St Anton with its drastic 2012 pow. Loved it for its stability at speed and floatability. That tiny tail is great for making quick turns on the steeps, when you don’t want to be pointing downhill for more than a moment (Valluga north face!). Also had a great time nose pressing it & switch was a hoot (ok for a few turns, mostly for the comic effect…..)! Bravo JJ

    On the Carbon Series Flagship. What sizes are being made.
    I know that the Carbon Solution is coming in sizes mentioned above, but I woiuld assume that they are making the non-split carbon in similar sizes to the standard flagship.
    Any info you can share would be great.

    The knew line up looks great! Jones rocks they make beautiful boards and stand by them. I got the mountain twin this year I blew the slide wall out with two weeks. The Jones CO. sent me a knew within two weeks of them getting it! Thanks, this year I will be getting a solution for me and my girlfriend. The graphic on the solution this is inspiring, and evoke me to go deeper!

    Great preview!!!! Thank you!!!! I have a question why don’t you make other sizes with the Hovercraft?? It’s difficult for people taller like me…. we need more sizes for the powder!! Thank you!

    Carbon series flagship and carbon solutions are being made in 161, 164,163w.

  8. March 13, 2012

    Mercury, board size goes by weight and width more than height. The 156cm is suitable for a lot of people because of the waist width. And you can size down with it, it still floats like a dream.

    I understand shay, thank you fo your answer. But i continue to say it’s just for me. Here is my size, 1m93 and my weight 95!!!!! i ride with board like boat haha!
    if jones could make size like 172cm…..it would be perfect!! sorry for my english!

    Will the Mountain Twin be available as 164w split or which lengths are splitted of the model? I’m quite tall (186 cm) and heavy (86kg) snowboarder and I’m afraid that the shorter boards don’t give enought float in deep powder. I really need the board to be splitted for freeriding/touring and hoping for twintip board for its functionality to be ridden both ways…

  11. April 13, 2012

    Mercury, for sure. Maybe someday!

    Hello Shay!

    Just wondering if you know what shape changes the 2013 Jones All Mountain has. Jeremy said somewhere it has a new shape.

    Thanks!

    I’m interested in what kind of shape the twin will have as well. Sounds like purely a selling point because I can’t notice any difference in the pic and it’s a twin sooo not much room for change. But I loved the 2012, and can’t wait to check out the new model. Thank you!

    Yo guys, thought I would chime in really quick for you on the Mtn Twin Shape. Yes, the shape will change slightly for this next season. The current 11-12 model is a true twin. but don’t be sad. New for the 12-13 season is more refined all-mountain shape based off of the current model. The board will maintain a twin shape, but have a more directional flex and directional camrock, meaning more rocker in the tip than tail. In addition, the area of camber will also be slightly longer giving the board more improved edge hold. The binding inserts will also be set back slightly for a more directional twin feel. While the current model is a great ride, it’s feedback from consumers not, just pros that help the Jones team make sure what is being offered each season performs to the highest standard.

    Hope this helps!

    Hey Joe,
    I just wanted to say NOOOOO, I spent a long time researching a lot of ‘twin’ boards before deciding on the Jones Mtn Twin this year.. and let’s just say I wasn’t disappointed, it really does it all very well.
    My reason for responding is that I think you are going to lose a lot of custom from guys wanting the true twin ride – all mountain board by making the adjustments described above.

    I could go on, I’m just glad I got mine when I did and will probably never need another stik!

    I got a Hovercraft split last year. It has a very stiff tail and a very soft nose, the nose is too soft for me. It does have very very grippy edges. But this board has more of a GS cut to it. It’s made for doing big turns in the high-alpine. It is NOT Fishy or surfy in any way! It is not good in tight trees. To be honest, it’s more a board for the Alps in the high-alpine than a Cascade or Sierra slasher, i.e. This is a board for Jeremy to charge down 50degree chutes WITHOUT TURNING in places like Zermatt! It is not a hippie surf powder board to play around with in the trees. I’m that kinda guy, so, I’m a little disappointed with the Hovercraft, I thought it was going to be like a split Fish, IT IS NOT! I’m sure this is intentional though, Jeremy and Terje don’t really ride the same kind of lines.

    Hey Al up top, the Hovercraft is PERFECT for St. Antons! Especially the tour from Valluga to Zurs!

    PEACE!

    Matt tip info… next time you purchase a snowboard check the spec of the sidecut radius… it seems that you prefer tight sidecut… go for 8Meters and less and you will have fun to turn in the glades etc.. longer sidecut like 8.5 M to 9.2M and over is good to go fast or GS turn…. unless you like to rip your turns without carving it… really depend on the style of riding and preference here… I do have 8.75M Radius now with my board and can carve GS and Medium turns too… but when I need quick turn I just rip my turn easy and then come back on the edges…

    Hey, thanks for the response to my question, that sounds awesome! Riding the 2012 Mtn Twin, I felt that it could be set back a little more because I ride forward more than switch obviously and those adjustments sound like exactly what the board needs.

    Hi guys
    What bindings are you using on the splits. I’ve not had one before but after some hike outs last year in Japan Im keen on one. Can you run skins or similar on them?
    Thanks!
