The Flagship excels in technical terrain and is one the most confidence inspiring free ride boardson the planet. Featuring a directional rocker profile + Traction Tech 3.0 for unmatched edge grip onhard snow and a 3D Contour Base 3.0 for epic float in pow, the Flagship carves, stomps or straightlines with unbelievable precision. The Flagship’s tapered shape sinks the tail in pow for better float and quicker turns, while the FSC™ Engineered Veneer Topsheet, Flax/Basalt Power Stringers and new FSC™ Power Core add torsional response and reduce board chatter in rough snow. New for 2021, the Flagship has Float Pack inserts that give you the option of super setback stance on the deepest days.
Directional Rocker - A 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.
3D Base Contour 3.0 - Freeride 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.
Glide 3D Contour Bases enhance glide. The smooth radius of the nose and tail edges reduce friction at the contact points. With less friction and catch in the tips you can maintain more speed.
Flow 3D Contour Bases deliver unmatched turn flow and fluidity. Just like the nose and tail on a surfboard, the rounded tip and tail edges eliminate catch as you transfer pressure edge-to-edge. Turn initiation is effortless because you can roll the board on to the edge instead of tip the board on to the edge. Once on edge, camber and Traction Tech lock in your turn.
Float When a board has good float it should feel effortless to keep your nose up through pow, crud or crust. 3D Contour Bases improve float by reducing the “plow effect” of your nose and tail edges. Instead of plowing through the snow, the rounded edges smoothly deflect the snow to the sides of the board which pops your nose up without having to lean back and burn out your back leg.
Tapered Shape 12.5mm - The tapered shape sinks the tail in pow for better float and quicker turns.
Directional Flex pattern
V-core - Boards with V-Cores are slightly softer in the very center of the board for improved manouverability and stiffer through the tip and tail for stability and pop.
Blunt Nose - By adding a blunt nose you get the float benefits of a much longer nose without the 'snow plow' of a rounded tip and it's extra swing weight." - Jeremy Jones
Traction Tech 3.0 - Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Traction Tech improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board.
Progressive Sidecut - At 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.
Sintered 9900 Base
FSC Engineered Veneer - Triple-density full wood core featuring hardwood bamboo stringers for added pop and durability plus paulownia for weight savings.
Sustainable Flax/Basalt Stringers - Jones exclusive sustainable stringer made with 100% natural fibers. Composite Flax and Basalt stringer helps transfer power power to the edges, improves torsional response and absorbs board chatter.
