    Jones Hovercraft 2016 / 2017 Snowboard

    When Jones first launched the Hovercraft it was really aimed at riders who were looking for more of a powder-focused quiver board. However it didn't take long for people to realise that there was a whole lot more going on with this board than they expected. Not only was it outstanding in the powder its performance on piste was something of a revelation, kick starting that whole freecarving/pow weird shape revolution.

    The key to the Hovercraft's startling performance both in the powder and on piste is down to its revolutionary shape. This combines a longer powder-focused nose to give lift and float at the front, with a short powerful tail to give drive and power out the back. For this season, Jones has also added their revolutionary spooned nose and tail profile. This creates a 7mm 3D spooned bevel in the nose and a 4 mm spooned bevel in the tail. This innovative design works on multiple levels, the most obvious of these is that it helps lift the nose and sink the tail making the Hovercraft almost effortless in the deep stuff. But equally as important, it lets the board roll into and out of the turn giving really fluid edge-to-edge transitions, making this just one of the very best piste riding boards out there.

    Next add the directional rocker profile which combines a longer rocker in the nose with a powerful setback camber under the feet and short rocker zone at the tail; and not only do you get the perfect amount of float, but combine it with mellow Magne Traction edges, and you also get a powerful and responsive feel when blasting the piste.

    Internally Jones has continuously updated the construction of Hovercraft, stepping up its performance year on year. Built around a poplar core with bamboo laminate top sheep, the Hovercraft delivers a lively feel but with a smoother overall ride. Now one of the things that surprise most people about the Hovercraft is its Bi-Ax glass structural layers. These create a softer overall flex, but it's this easy-going feel that makes Hovercraft such a blast to ride and which will ensure that you'll be riding this a whole lot more than you originally thought.

    Finally the sintered 7000 base gives great guide in pre-much all conditions.

    Awesome Pow-Board

    Leon Han 26/06/2017

    Great powder board for those who enjoy pow-days. Gives you an awesome surfy-like feel during pow-days and is still able to rip up the groomers when you feel like it. Because the board is slightly wider, it lets you carve and edge the board harder. Highly Recommended (especially if you're thinking about making a trip to Japan)!
