Description

Leave the right kind of carbon footprint.

The Flagship has earned its rep as the most capable freeride board around, so you can imagine that we were skeptical when we heard rumors about something even better. Out skepticism was unfounded, however, and it was clear the moment we laid eyes on the Jones Carbon Flagship snowboard. It takes everything that's made the Flagship the go-to board of charging freeriders the world over, and cranks up the stiffness, lightness, and response with an all-new carbon fiber construction. The result is a piece of big-mountain equipment tailored specifically to the needs of riders at the bleeding edge of the sport. If you think it might be too much board for you, it probably is, but if you are dead-set on pushing your limits all the way, there is no finer ride on the planet.

The carbon fiber topsheet and carbon stringers shed a significant amount of weight as compared to the regular Flagship. In addition, they make for a stiffer, damper, more responsive ride. Think of it as a track-prepped touring car―the faster and more aggressively you ride it, the more it will come to life. Camber between the feet keeps the Carbon Flagship planted at mach speed, and there's slightly more rocker in the nose than the tail, for unreal float, without sacrificing the ability to ride switch. Mellow Magne-Traction places bumps along the edge, for insane edgehold, especially when you're crossing an icy traverse on the way to the run of your life. The blunted nose keeps swing weight down for quicker turns. The sintered base holds a bunch of wax, and runs crazy fast. And the beautiful wood topsheet is as environmentally friendly as it is durable.

Super Delicious Deck

I've spent about a week riding this board after picking it up at the SnowShow in Feb (review is about the 2014/15 162W). The board is amazing on nearly everything I rode. The float was unreal in the deep stuff. You couldn't drowned this board in pow even if you were wearing cement boots. On the groomers I really opened it up -- this board didn't blink at high speeds and was begging for more. I agree with Ralph that it takes more effort on hard pack moguls, but I try to avoid riding those anyway. I also agree with JCP in that now I want the carbon solution. If you're ready for it, you will not regret buying this board.

Won't Let You Down

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Riding the 161. Rode in powder, chopped powder, and groomers. Also rode the regular flagship (1st year produced) as my regular board until I purchased the carbon flagship. Noticeably stiffer. Holds its edge that would make other boards wash out. Inspired confidence that you can retain control when needed. The board definitely comes to life at higher speeds. I have yet to find a speed limit for this board. In fact, it allows me to push harder and ride faster than with its predecessor. Lots of pop, quick edge to edge. Needs some input at slower speeds but that is to be expected in a stiffer board. I really enjoy going straight down the fall line on this board, more so than even the regular flagship. The base is very fast, and the top sheet is very strong. Overall, a phenomenal adv/exp level board. The only problem is now I want the carbon solution as well...

Hard charging

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm 5'9", 190 lbs, and would say that this board can handle anything you can put in front of it. I rode the 164 Carbon Flagship all 2012/13 (probably 80 days on this board), including in all 6 stops of the Freeride World Tour, in Haines, AK, and wouldn't have felt as confident on any other board. Stiff, durable, and reliable, this is your board if going fast in big terrain is something you enjoy. It rides great in pow, chopped pow, groomers, chalk, and corn, but isn't a super fun board to ride firm moguls on.
