DETAILSThe legendary Flagship is the foundation of Jones Snowboards. Jeremy Jones spent two decades perfecting this freeride board design and thousands of riders worldwide now revere the Flagship as the most confidence inspiring snowboard on the planet. While other snowboards may mimic the Flagship's muscle bound shape and flex profile, rest assured there is still nothing like the real thing. The Flagship is powerful and responsive thanks to the mellow Magne-traction, Blunt Nose and Directional Rocker, but it's the iconic ash-wood top sheet that's the game changer. The wood topsheet delivers a lively but damp board feel that pops and stomps unlike any other freeride board out there.
Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Magne-Traction improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board. "Magne-Traction is a critical feature for rockered boards. Rocker improves glide in mixed conditions, but the decreased edge contact makes it harder to really lock into your turns and hold a solid edge. Magne-Traction is crucial to offset the edge drift of rocker." - Jeremy Jones
Using wood for a topsheet dampens the ride and offers chatter-free performance. The natural material also eliminates some plastic and lacquer which improves board sustainability.
"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 board without the 'snow plow' rounded tip and it's extra swing weight." - Jeremy Jones
