Jones Snowboards – Carbon Solution Splitboard:
Many of the heaviest lines that go down in the world, go down in the backcountry. The Carbon Solution is built for powerful riders who rip technical backcountry lines and demand a splitboard that offers the same ultra-responsive performance as a top-level solid freeride deck.
The carbon topsheet and carbon stringers provide a damp, stiff ride that excels in variable snow conditions.
NEW for 2015 we’ve shaved 500 grams from the Carbon Solution using the ULTRA core.
Retail Price: $1199
“The Carbon Solution is one of the stiffest and dampest splitboards on the market. Most other carbon splitboards are not that stiff and inherently not as capable at ehigh speeds as the Carbon Solution.” – Seth Lightcap, Jones Snowboards’ Marketing/Team Manager
Tested on Denali and the Grand Teton, the performance of the Ultracraft has been proven on some of the heaviest splitboard mountaineering achievements on the planet. The Ultracraft features the same trim and powerful shape as the revolutionary Hovercraft but it is built using a carbon topsheet, carbon core inserts and Jones’ top secret ’Ultra Construction’ technology. Ultra Construction trims away grams by eliminating excess materials and reduces overall weight by nearly a pound compared to the Hovercraft Split.
Unlike traditional splitboards that are designed around a solid board platform then sliced down the middle, the Ultracraft is also one of the first splitboards produced as two individual skis that are later transformed into a solid board.
The fusion of an explosive board shape, featherweight core materials and cutting edge construction technologies has made the Ultracraft the board Jeremy rides when he needs to move fast over technical terrain or climb and ride dawn to dark in his backcountry backyard.

“The Ultracraft walks the line of featherweight and performance better than any split on the market. There may be a lighter carbon split available but how do they handle firm snow or breakable crust? The Ultracraft charges in any condition.” – Seth Lightcap, Jones Snowboards’ Marketing/Team Manager
