I've got a barely used 2011/2012 156cm Jones Hovercraft Splitboard for sale. I've used it about 10 times riding backcountry. There are a couple of light scratches on the deck that are cosmetic only, some abrasion where the binder plates were, and there's one small scrape in the deck by the rear heel lift that's through the top clear coat. Edges have normal wear from skinning, etc, and there are no scratches, core shots, or dings on the base or edges. This split board is in good shape, all it needs is a set of bindings like the Sparks R&D, Voile, or Karakoram, and you're set to go riding.
Included in the package are the Karakoram clips, and a set of Voile Tractor Skins that are already set up for the board. Note that pictures show mounting hardware for Karakoram bindings which are not included in this sale.
Asking $475/offer plus actual shipping for the package. Located in SF Bay Area.
Specs and Language from the Backcountry: Your best friend on a powder day - in anything from four inches to four feet. The Jones Hovercraft Snowboard was designed to do one thing: float on top of the good stuff. With tons of surface area and a set-back, directional hybrid-rocker shape, the Hovercraft glides through low-angle tree runs with plenty of speed and will open your eyes to new stashes all over your local resort. Just don't be surprised to hear your friends grumbling and cursing behind you as they get stuck trying to follow your line. • Directional hybrid shape uses camber underfoot for stability and hardpack edge grip, with rocker in the nose for awesome floatation • Film topsheet reduces weight and environmental impact without compromising durability • Blunt nose for reduced swing weight and easier planing in powder, crud, or corn • FSC-certified full wood core is light, strong, and sustainably farmed • Mellow Magne-Traction edge design adds contact points for improved grip, while still letting you finesse your turns • Beefed-up edges are 250% stronger than traditional edge layups to withstand serious impacts without blowing out • Sintered base for durability and speed, with alternating color patterns to reduce wasted materials • Includes the Karakoram split board clips
