Product Info

Real splitboarders know that it pays to be light on your feet when you're gunning for far flung objectives deep in the backcountry. And for those missions, the Jones Ultracraft Splitboard is the way to go. The Ultracraft uses the same shape as the cult classic Hovercraft, but is built with the highest quality ultralight materials available, like premium Fusion Core construction and the all-new Koroyd layup, making it one of the best split boards on the market, bar none, especially for riding in deeper conditions.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Directional RockerA hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and camber between the bindings. The rockered tip floats the board’s nose and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and response. A slightly rockered tail maintains the power and stability of a traditional board but helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.

Flex

Directional Flex Pattern

Flex Rating8 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Forever FlexAll Jones boards are broken in using specialized machinery that mimics extreme riding use to help stabilize the flex and rocker profile of a board for it's lifetime.

Shape

3D Contour Base 3.0Freeride focused 3D Contour Base featuring a 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose and 0 - 7mm of spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point.

Progressive SidecutAt the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually increasing the sidecut radius towards the contact point delivers smoother turn initiation and exit as the edge tracks in and out of the snow with a less abrupt transition.

Blunt Nose"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 nose without the 'snow plow' rounded tip and it's extra swing weight." - Jeremy Jones

Core

FSC™ Fusion CoreThe new Fusion Core is Jones lightest wood core yet. Core is made from mostly paulownia with specifically positioned pockets of poplar for improved durability and response.

Koroyd® CoreAward-winning engineered core developed from the aerospace industry. Koroyd is the lightest, most advanced damping core material Jones has ever tested. Koroyd absorbs vibrations and adds response at a fraction of the weight which enhances control and confidence.

Ultra ConstructionThe Ultra series is the redefinition of what it takes to build a snowboard. Jones Ultra boards combine innovative construction techniques with premium materials for revolutionary results.

Laminates

Fusion CarbonFusion Carbon Construction is a cutting edge board layup process that reduces board weight and improves durability by combining aerospace grade carbon fiber with a wood core in two distinct stages. This produces the most damp, durable and responsive boards Jones have ever tested.

Fiberglass ReinforcementFiberglass layer improves pop in nose and tail, and increases the longevity of the flex profile. This lightweight layer helps the board perform the same on day 100 as it did on day 1 - precise and playful.

Stainless Steel ReinforcementStainless steel plates are embedded into the nose and tail for improved board tip durability.

Sidewalls

Recycled ABSABS plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. Jones improves the sustainability of their snowboards by using only recycled plastic.

Base

Ultra BaseJones exclusive base material that sets new performance standards. Lab results and snow testing show 25% better wax absorption, better glide in warm/wet snow and better durability for grinding.

Edges

Inside and Outside Traction Tech 3.0Traction Tech 3.0 features three bumps per edge (front binding, board center, back binding). The middle bump is slightly bigger than the outside bumps for better grip.

Recycled EdgesAll Jones boards are made with recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.

Topsheet

Textured Eco-Plastic TopsheetBio-plastic topsheet made from Castor beans featuring a subtle texture for added durability. This eco-material is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant and water/snow repellent (snow sticks less to topsheet).

Additional Features

Karakoram Ultra Clips 3C with Tip-LockAll new Karakoram Ultra Clips 3C featuring a three point tension system. Ultralight and exclusive to Jones, these clips redefine split clip technology. They are also adjustable so you can maintain even compression as your splitboard ages.

Bolt-Less BridgeThe Bolt-Less Bridge eliminates split clip attachment hardware from the base of the board by re-profiling the wood core at the clips. The wood core under the clips is thicker providing better torsional stiffness and a more powerful connection at the split clips.

Quick Tension TailA built in climbing skin tension system with a pre-cut notch that eliminates the need for a traditional skin tail clip.

Bio ResinAll Jones boards are now built with bio-based, renewable epoxy instead of petroleum based epoxy. The raw materials used to make Super Sap Bio-Resin are co-products or waste products of other plant-based industrial processes. Producing Super Sap requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions than conventional epoxy.

Factory TunedAll Jones snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.

Wend Natural WaxJones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
