Built for the most demanding lines on Earth.
If you're looking to get into the backcountry to take mellow pow runs and carve lazy turns, this isn't what you want. However, if you use your split as dedicated equipment for accessing remote lines that require absolute focus and pinpoint precision, the Jones Carbon Solution Splitboard is arguably the highest performance split you can strap to your feet. It takes everything that's made the regular Solution a legend, and makes it more aggressive. The carbon fiber construction sheds weight, while increasing the stiffness and damping, turning this into a turbo-charged beast that devours the gnarliest lines you'll ever step to.
The carbon fiber topsheet and carbon stringers keep the weight down, while providing a stiffer, damper, more responsive ride. The carbon fiber topsheet looks like it belongs in a race car, which would be a surprisingly accurate way to think of the Carbon Solution's handling. It's not designed to be forgiving-- instead, hold the throttle wide open and drive it like your life's on the line. Naturally, the weight reduction pays dividends on the skin track as well. Camber between the feet keeps the Solution 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 on windblown, exposed lines, while the blunted nose keeps swing weight down for quicker turns. Triple-density wood creates an ultralight and incredibly strong core, and the sintered base is extra-absorbent for long-lasting speed and tough for durability. Unlike traditional clips, the included Karakoram board clips actively pull both halves of the board together, which means less chatter and better response.

158 is 6 lbs 1 once. 161 6lbs 3oz. Those were all the weights I could find for this board. The carbon jones boards are stiffer and not necessarily lighter.
Best review of splitboards I've found.
