JONES'S BIG MOUNTAIN GUN

The Lone Wolf was a new addition to the Jones range last year and finally added a much requested Swallow Tail to the line-up. However, this is unlike any Swallow that has gone before. Taking inspiration from the design of the Hovercraft, Jones took that classic long powder nose and swallow tail shape, but this time they integrated it directly onto the chassis of a Super G board. This has created a totally mind-blowing big mountain snowboard that not only rules the backcountry but one which blows the doors off just about every other high-performance Gun type snowboard on the market. No matter if you're charging backcountry powder and corduroy groomers, the Lone Wolfs unique ride will blow your mind.

Rider Style
Advanced to Expert riders who are looking for a serious Gun type snowboard for high speed riding both on and off-piste.

Shape Overview
The Lone Wolf takes the classic swallow tail fully directional profile and brings it bang up to date with advanced construction and design. Its oversized powder nose profile delivers unrivalled float at the front while the classic swallow shape at the tail sinks the back of the board in deep snow. However, what marks the Lone Wolf out from other similar boards is its powerful GS inspired central section. By combining a relatively compact sidecut with Jones's innovative Traction Tech multi-edge profile and a powerful and dynamic flex, the Lone Wolf is a revelation to ride on the piste.

Profile
The Lone Wolf utilises an amalgamation of the Christianson Surf Rocker with traditional snowboard profiles to create that balance of off-piste/on-piste performance. Because of the extended nose length, Jones start the Christianson Rocker uplift just forward of the front insert pack. This long profile gives unrivalled float and lift at the nose for stunning off-piste performance. This is then matched with what's best described as a traditional camber under the feet. This gives the board its stable and reassuring high-speed ride, while that short swallowtail powers the board out of the turn.

3D Contour Base 3.0
The Lone Wolf's freeride focused 3D-base contour features 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose. This unique profile ensures that the board delivers a smooth transition into and out of the turn as well as increasing float at the front end. Unlike other boards in the range, the Lone Wolf does away with Spoon in the tail to give you that rock solid and stable drive out the back of the board.

Construction
Internally the Lone Wolf is built for performance, and heading this up is the responsive Bamboo Surf Core. This lively wood core combines lightweight Paulownia with poppy Bamboo located parallel to the sidecut. This powers up the boards on edge response while still delivering a smooth and mellow ride. Now to give the Lone Wolf its predictable and confidence inspiring ride, Jones create the structural layers from a more forgiving bi-ax glass. This notches back response a fraction giving that extra bit of reassurance at high speed. Now to stop that big nose flapping around when you're gunning it, the designers reinforce it with a blend of Tri-ax Carbon and Innegra.

Base
As the Lone Wolf is all about Charging, Jones fit it with their high end 9900 sintered base.Made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and Carbon. This ultra-fast base is easy to repair.
