Ideal for Freeriding and Fall-Line Freestyle
After four years of first descents and 100-day seasons from Squaw Valley to Verbier, the Flagship is widely regarded as one of the finest freeride boards on the planet. The Flagship’s now-legendary reputation comes as no surprise to Jeremy Jones. Jeremy has spent the last two decades perfecting this rhino chaser design that’s as powerful as it is responsive. Coveted for it’s stability at speed and wall crawling edge grip, the Flagship will hit mach-speed without fluttering your heart beat thanks to the mellow Magne-traction, directional rocker and camber underfoot. The Flagship’s ash-wood topsheet is also a game-changer as it provides a lively but damp board feel that’s big on pop and solid on landing. This board was born to go fast so watch out speed racer. It’s not our fault if you get your pass pulled for straightlining on the Flagship.
Jones Snowboards - 2014 Flagship and Carbon Flagship
Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Magne-Traction improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board.
“Magne-Traction is a key ingredient for rockered board designs. Adding rocker to your board makes it glide more smoothly, but it makes it harder to really lock into your turns and hold a solid edge. Magne-Traction is crucial to offset the drift typical of rocker flex patterns.” - Jeremy Jones
“How a board glides in powder, crust, corn, or any snow condition more then an inch deep is dictated by its 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 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 board tip without the added length or swing weight.” - Jeremy Jones
Jones’ signature core, the Hard Core is a hybrid wood core designed for the ultimate pop, power transfer and durability. Featherweight Poplar stringers in the middle of the core are framed with bulletproof Beech stringers under the edges to produce a core that combines the snappy, even flex of Poplar with the damp, responsive benefits of Beech. Framing the sides of the core in the Beech hardwood creates unparalleled energy transfer to your edge and helps protect the board from harsh side impacts.
Fastest natural base material available. Durable, more resistant to impact, absorbs wax faster and retains wax longer.
Carbon stringers are added to select models to improve pop and torsional stiffness and increase the longevity of the flex profile. This lightweight layer helps the board perform the same on day 100 as it did on day one - precise and playful.
Jones’ signature laminate composition, Carbon Quadrax features multi-layered, multi-axis fiberglass meshed with dual-zone carbon fiber power bands. The carbon power bands in the nose and tail dampen vibrations and create supreme longitudinal and torsional snap which keeps the board stable at high speeds and on steep terrain.
The Wood Topsheet dampens the ride for chatter-free performance. The natural material also eliminates some plastic and lacquer which cuts down on waste and weight.
STONE GROUND FINISH
For unmatched glide and wax adhesion we finish the bases of our boards with a stone ground structure pattern that’s race ready in all snow conditions.
All Jones Snowboards are factory tuned, detuned at the tip and tail and factory waxed so you can go from the shop right to the hill.
RECYCLED ABS SIDEWALLS
All Jones boards feature recycled ABS sidewall material.
We added 35% more steel than a typical edge, what this achieves is a 250% increase in impact resistance compared to other edges offered on the market today.
FLIP FLOP BASE
By flip flopping the base graphic colors, P-Tex waste is drastically reduced by increasing the material yield.

Proudly made in Austria
Jones Snowboards are proudly made at the GST factory in Antiesenhofen, Austria.
Our dedication to performance, durability and environmental responsibility makes this small town in central Europe the best place in the world for Jones to manufacture our boards. GST’s state-of-the-art factory is a snowboard-only production facility that specializes in working with cutting edge materials and innovative construction techniques. Their focus on strictly controlling every step in the production process has earned GST the lowest warranty rate in the snowboard industry.
But beyond quality of product, what makes GST the perfect partner is both their location and their passion for environmental stewardship. We are able to source 95% of our materials from within 500 km of the factory including steel edges from Germany, woodcores from Slovenia and inserts from Italy. GST’s central location to these premier material suppliers allows us to use less energy and transportation resources than if we were to build our boards in a private factory in the USA and source materials from around the world. Our environmental footprint is even further reduced by GST’s own practices. The company is a pioneer in sustainable ski/board manufacturing as the factory runs on recycled water and green energy.
