As the no. 1 selling splitboard in the world, the Solution has shifted the goalposts in splitboard performance.
Refined and honed over the years by a combination of improved construction, but more importantly hours spent on the snow, the Solution has been at the forefront of the growth in backcountry exploration. The new 2017 Solution continues that tradition of constant evolution, ensuring that no matter how deep you go into the wilderness you can be confident that you have the very best equipment under your feet.
Built around a fully directional blunt nose shape it utilises the freeride inspired directional rocker profile. This combines a longer rocker at the nose with a set-back camber from the insert pack, stepping up lift in the front but with a solid and reassuring ride under foot. To this Jones then add their Mellow Magne Traction sidecut, this is placed on both the outside and inside edges so not only does it make the board turn better it also adds extra grip and traction when traversing on skis.
New for this season is the Bolt-Less Bridge, this innovative design eliminates split clip attachment hardware from the base by re-profiling the core at the clips. This also adds torsional rigidity to the board and gives a more powerful connection at the clips. In addition the new Solution also features stainless steel tip and tail reinforcement plates with pre-cut Quick Tension notches eliminating the need for skin tail clips and Karakoram Ultra Clips for improved torsional board lock.
Internally, the Solution utilises the high end triple density Master core, this is wrapped with Tri-Ax glass structural layers reinforced with Carbon Split stringers to create a torsionally responsive board that rides as close to a traditional snowboard as it's possible to get. Add to this the ECO-plastic snow repellent top sheet manufactured from Caster Beans and the super fast 9900 grade sintered base and you have all the ingredients in place to give you a board that excels both when riding and when touring.
