THE ULTIMATE BIG MOUNTAIN MACHINE FOR FIRST DESCENTS AND FREERIDE WORLD TOUR RUNS

Over the years we've seen freeriding progress to a stage where it seems that just about every mountain on the globe now has a line. These almost un-rideable faces are creating a new breed of extreme snowboarder who thrives in the environment where even the smallest slip can be the difference between life and death. This is the world that riders like Jeremy Jones and Ryland Bell operate in, and that's why they demand the very best equipment. The Carbon Flagship has been designed and built to live in this world, and that's why you'll see it strapped to the feet of not only Jones team riders but also scores of riders on the Freeride World Tour. Taking the same classic freeride shape as the Flagship, Jones up the spec creating one of the most responsive and powerful snowboards ever made. This no compromise build delivers a truly mind bending board that can take on the most extreme terrain on the planet and never feel like it's out of its depth.

Rider Style
World class freeriders and big mountain riders looking for the ultimate high-performance snowboard.

Shape Overview
The Carbon Flagship shares the same fully directional Blunt Nose shape as the standard Flagship. This innovative design is shaped to channel the flow of snow under the nose of the board increasing float at the front and doing away with the usual long nose shape generally associated with this kind of board. This gives the rider a more controllable and balanced feel helping to inspire confidence in even the trickiest terrain. That quest for control and feel is further carried over to the Traction Tech sidecut profile. By adding small bumps into the sidecut Jones create additional traction points at the edges delivering a more stable and secure ride without the unpredictability of other manipulated sidecut profiles.

Profile
The Carbon Flagships freeride specific profile combines an extended rocker zone at the nose with a set-back camber between the inserts and a shorter 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 back of the turn.

3D Contour Base 3.0
One of the key features that set the Carbon Flagship apart from other freeride boards is the innovative 3D Contour Base profile. This unique design adds an even balance of 7mm spoon at both the nose and tail running from the start of the board's rocker zone. Although this bevel doesn't look much to the naked eye, it transforms the way the board rides. Turn initiation becomes smoother and more fluid while float at the nose increases thanks to the way the profile funnels the snow down and under the nose.

Construction
Internally the Carbon Flagship uses the same high-performance Power Core as the standard Flagship. Constructed from a combination of durable poplar, lightweight paulownia and powerful bamboo it delivers the perfect balance of high performance, durability and light weight. However, it's the addition of the Textreme Carbon structural layers which replace the standard board's Flax/Glass layers that powers up the Carbon Flagship. This state of the art carbon fabric manufactured by Oxeon AB utilises an advanced Spread Tow configuration which not only increases strength and power but also reduces weight over standard carbon composites. This unique construction delivers a genuinely stunning snowboard that is not only stable and powerful but one which has the reactions to get you through even the most extreme terrain.

Base
Proven on the world cup circuit, the complex Sintered Ultra Base is made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) modified with special Fluoro and Paraffin based additives. This delivers increased glide and extra durability. ULTRA base is harder and faster than any other sintered base.
