Take it from the master.
Jeremy Jones has been pushing the limits of big-mountain riding since
many of his peers have been in diapers. Whether he's putting down first
descents in AK or New Zealand, Mr. Jones trusts his life to the Flagship
snowboard in the hairiest terrain on Earth. The Wide version is designed for riders with size 11 boots or larger.
The directional rocker/camber hybrid shape and refined Magne-Traction edge design create a super-stable platform that floats on top of nipple-deep snow, stomps warp-speed airs, and powers through icy turns, so you can stay on top of your board when falling is simply not an option. Carbon additives at the tip and tail add stiffness for more pop and better edge control without a lot of added weight. The FSC-certified full wood core is tough, snappy, lightweight, and made from only sustainably farmed wood. Jones also built the Carbon Flagshiop with a mellow Magne-Traction edge design for greater control in turns without having to use overly stiff construction.
Jones also added some features that make the Carbon flagship more durable. The reinforced edges are about 250% tougher than standard snowboard edges. Aluminum tip and tail protectors reduce incidents of delamination due to hard impacts. Finally, the sintered base is tougher and faster than an extruded base, so it takes more to hit the core.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Have been riding this baby in all kinds of conditions: blue ice, dreamy groomers, crunchy hardpack, sketchy low tide death cookies... SOLID is the best word to describe this board. The 168W Carbon and cuts through everything without hesitation.
As one of the few boards out there with a solid rocker in the nose but still grippy camber underfoot, the carbon adds a dimension to the 'normal' flagship that is worth every penny. What I find as I transitioned is that it's not really 'lighter' (can't say I weighed the boards side-by side, sorry. This is just my impression) but has that assertive 'pop' and grip that can only come from a Carbon board. Definitely not a 'jib' board at heart, it you are looking for a playful board, try the Jones Mountain Twin.
