    Jones Women's Hovercraft 2018 / 2019 Snowboard

    THE POWDER BOARD THAT SLAYS GROOMERS

    The Women's Hovercraft delivers genuinely stunning performance both on the piste and in the pow. By combining the very best elements of a powder board with the soul of an alpine board, Jones has created a truly unique but addictive riding experience that will blow the mind of even the most cynical rider. Get this board in the deep stuff, and it's a revelation, the nose comes up with no effort while its nimble reactions let you hit even the tightest tree runs. However, it's once you hit the piste that the Hovercraft comes into its own. That unique Alpine shape combined with a slightly more playful construction delivers a level of on-piste carving performance that will have you grinning like the Cheshire cat.

    Rider Style
    Intermediate to Expert riders who are looking for a grin-inducing piste board that rules in the pow.

    Shape Overview
    The Hovercrafts unique directional shape is the result of an improbable mating of two very different snowboard design philosophies that combine to create one revolutionary snowboard shape. The front of the board features an extended blunt tip nose shape featuring extended contact points. This innovative design gives unrivalled lift and float in deep snow. From the contact point's back, the Hovercraft changes tact and becomes a far more piste orientated machine. With a shorter stiffer tail and tight radius sidecut featuring the Multi-Contact Traction Tech 2 Sidecut, you get a far more solid and stable feel on piste combined with drive and power out the back of the board.

    Profile
    Directional Rocker: The Hovercraft utilises Jones's freeride specific Directional Rocker profile which features an extended rocker zone at the nose that matches the boards more extended nose profile. This then blends into a set-back camber running from the ends of the contact points blending into a short low profile rocker at the tail. This profile allows the board to float effortlessly in deep snow while still delivering a powerful and dynamic ride on hardpack terrain. The shorter rocker at the tail when combined with the stiffer flex helps create a more responsive and stable feel at the back of the board while increasing power out the end of the turn.

    3D Contour Base 4.0
    The Hovercrafts 4.0 Spooned base is the most powder focussed version of Jones's innovative base profile. Featuring 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose, 4mm in the tail and a 1mm deep Speed Channel between the tail edges. Concave Speed Channel pushes loose snow out from under the board for added speed.

    Construction
    It's what's inside the Hovercraft that has been the key to its stunning success. It would have been all too easy to pack it full of tech and make it a real powerhouse of a board, but thankfully Jones didn't go that route. Instead, and in a stroke of genius they decided to give it a more mellow playful ride, and it's this that makes the Hovercraft such a fantastic board. Heading this up is the durable Classic core, constructed from premium poplar, it creates a mellow flexing board without compromising strength and durability. To this, Jones then add structural layers formed bi-ax glass. It's these torsionally more forgiving layers that give the Hovercraft that unique playful and effortless performance that makes this board so unique. However, don't think the Hovercraft is a noodle, thanks to the bamboo veneer top sheet it's also got a whole load of life in there. So, it might be smooth and easy to ride, but push it a little harder, and it's going to blow your mind.

    What type of base does it have?
    If you're going to ride fast, then you'll need a great base. Thankfully the Hovercraft doesn't disappoint as Jones fit it with a high quality 7000 sintered base. This durable base material features added carbon for speed and excellent wax absorbency.
