    Jones Men's Ultracraft 2017 / 2018 Snowboard

    It's safe to say that when Jones first launched the Hovercraft, even in their wildest forecasts they couldn't have imagined it would become the success that it did. It seems that the market was crying out for a snowboard that blended the piste riding characteristics of an alpine board with the float of a powder board, all wrapped up in a super playful fun package. However, it didn't take long for people to start asking the question, 'if this board rides so good with basic construction, how good is it going to be if they build it out of high end materials'. Step forward the stunning Ultracraft. Sharing the same directional shape and profile as the standard Hovercraft, Jones eschew that easy-going construction for some of the most advanced snowboard manufacturing and material technologies available, answering that question with 'bloody amazing'.

    So, remaining unchanged over the standard board is the shape and outline. This is built around the new spooned tip and tail directional shape with longer extended rocker in the nose to give easier float, an aggressive camber setback under the feet to give more drive and power to the edges and tail and the mellow Magne Traction sidecut to improve edge grip on hard snow. Again, as per the standard board it also features the innovative Spooned tip and tail shape. This 3-D base profile adds a 7mm spoon on the nose and a 4mm spoon on the tail giving extra float at the front and allowing the board to roll into the turn making carving more fluent and effortless.

    But, it's when it comes to construction that the similarities end, because this is where Jones have upped the game over the Hovercraft. Heading up the high-end construction is the Master Core. Re-Profiled for 17/18, it combines dual density poplar with lightweight Paulownia to deliver a powerful and responsive flex whilst reducing weight over the standard board. However, the biggest change is the structural layers. On the standard Hovercraft, these are formed from softer Bi-Ax glass giving the board its unique playful ride, whereas on the Ultracraft, things get a whole lot more serious. Jones use a torsionally stiffer Tri-Ax glass reinforced with pre-cured Basalt Stringers creating a lightning fast board that pushes you to ride hard and fast. Finally, the base steps up several levels to a 9900 Sintered as opposed to the standard boards 7000 Sintered. The higher grade base is both faster and tougher.
