The Jones Aviator Snowboard is an award-winning quiver killer. This razor sharp and directional freestyle board is a team rider favorite and was built for ultimate stability on the ground as well as in the air. Nimble handling and sound-barrier busting acceleration are direct results of the Aviators kick-ass 3D Power Camber profile. The camber profile is also innov
ROCKER TYPE,3D Power Camber äóñ An innovative traditional camber profile tweaked to offer the insane edge response of camber without the usual hang-ups. The board profile crosses over into the third dimension as the base is beveled up at the edges from the contact points of the camber to the ends of the board. The base beveling releases the edges where they like to hook which balances the pop and directional stability of camber with a looser, less-catchy feel.
FLEX,Flex Rating: 7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) äóñ This snowboard has a mid-stiff flex rating that will provide you with a predictable, responsive and fast ride. This snowboard is good for the entire mountain; slalom courses, powder, groomers, and kickers. Loaded with turning abilities, strong edge hold and tons of preloaded pop you're in for a sweet ride.
SHAPE,Blunt Nose äóñ "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
Progressive Sidecut äóñ At the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually decreasing the side cut 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.
CORE,Power Core äóñ Full-wood dual-density core featuring light, strong, and dimensionally stable hardwood stringers that improve durability.
LAMINATES,Triax äóñ Triax laminate consists of fiberglass that is braided in three directions. Meaning it gives the snowboard an asymmetrical flex with lengthwise stiffness. For you, this delivers a snowboard that has tons of pitch when jumping.
SIDEWALLS,Recycled ABS Sidewalls äóñ Plastic is one of the evils commonly used in snowboard production. Jones improved the sustainability of their snowboards by using only recycled plastic.
BASE,Sintered 9900 äóñ The fastest, most durable and wax absorbent natural base material available. Sintered bases are super-fast. Polyethylene pellets are forced together under extremely high pressure. The result is a singular piece of connected pellets with tiny pores across the entire base. Sintered bases absorb hot wax really well.
Stone Ground Finish äóñ For unmatched glide and wax adhesion, Jones finishes the bases of their boards with a stone ground structure pattern that's race ready in all snow conditions.
Die-Cut Base äóñ Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
EDGES,Recycled Stronger Edges äóñ Recycled steel reinforces the snowboard's edges to give you exceptional impact resistance.
Mellow Magne-Traction䋢 äóñ Maximizes your edge hold between your feet so you have better control and stability even on the iciest slopes. Magne-Traction䋢 varies in the serration depending on the board; regardless it will deliver a catch-free ride any day. "Magne-Traction䋢 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䋢 is crucial to offset the drift typical of rocker flex patterns." - Jeremy Jones.
Film Topsheet äóñ Film topsheets provide the stiffness and impact resistance of a normal topsheet while significantly reducing weight by decreasing the thickness of the topsheet material.
