Forrest Shearer’s Signature Hovercrafts

Ideal for ripping turns, slashing pow and exploring the wildernessThe Hovercraft 2.0 is an explosive alternative freeride board with a tapered directional shape that offers surprisingly diverse performance. With a floaty nose, camber underfoot and a long sidecut, the Hovercraft charges through pow, crust or corn, and rails on piste. The Hovercraft also features Re-Up Tech and is built with recycled materials from old snowboards.

Key Benefits

  • Medium flex for friendly control
  • Tapered directional shape for nimble float
  • Directional rocker profile for float + grip
  • Long sidecut for stability at speed
  • Made with Re-Up tech. Stringers are recycled materials from old snowboards.
  • 3D Contour Base for ultra fast glide and fluid turn intiation

Board Type: Freeride

Flex: 6/10 (1=soft, 10=stiff)

Stiff boards are really stable at high speeds and in rough snow, and increase confidence in steep, deep, and rough terrain.

Profile: Directional Rocker

A hybrid flex pattern which places camber underfoot and rocker in the tips then moves it back towards the tail putting the power under your back foot. The longer rocker in the nose keeps it floating and improves manoeuvrability, while the camber underfoot enhances stability, edge hold, and response.

Shape: Directional

This board has a setback stance, directional shape, and directional flex pattern, so ride it forwards for optimum performance.

3D Base Contour 3.0

The most advanced 3D base contour pattern from Jones, featuring 7mm of bevel in the nose and 4mm in the tail.

Progressive Sidecut

This board features a progressive sidecut consisting of two blended radii to accomodate the three stages of a turn. This provides easy turn initiation white offering greater control throughout the turn and maximum power when exiting.

Core: Reclaimed Core

High performance poplar and paulownia wood core featuring specially positioned embedded stringers made from reclaimed snowboards.

Biax Fibreglass

A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fibreglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving, and snappy ride.

Flax Topsheet

Flax fibers are used in place of a traditional topsheet and offer a damp ride that absorbs chatter at any speed. Flax uses less resin in the board layup which saves more weight and synthetic materials.

Base: Sintered 8000

This new super durable base material is made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene and carbon, making it easily repairable, highly wax absorbent, and super fast.

Extra Features:

Bio Resin – All Jones boards are built with bio-based, renewable epoxy instead of petroleum based epoxy. The raw materials used to make Bio Resin are co-products or waste products of other plant-based industrial processes. Producing Bio Resin requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions than conventional epoxy.

Traction Tech – Traction Tech features three bumps per edge (front binding, board centre, back binding). The middle bump is slightly bigger than the outside bumps for better grip.

Recycled ABS – ABS Plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. Jones improve the sustainability of their snowboards by using only recycled plastic. The rounded sidewall finish improves board durability by protecting the topsheet from chipping.

Wend Bio Wax – Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with Wend Bio Wax.

Oversized Recycled Edges – Exactly what it sounds like, enhanced sustainability and added durability.

Factory Tuned – All Jones snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail, so you can go riding straight away.

Forever Flex –  Jones boards now are finished slightly overbuilt and are broken in using specialised machinery that mimics riding use. This flexes the fibers and epoxy and allows them to settle into their final state, similar to riding the boards for 20 days. This provides a much more accurate flex rating.
