The Flagship excels in technical terrain and is one the most confidence inspiring free ride boards on the planet.
Featuring a directional rocker profile + Traction Tech 3.0 for unmatched edge grip on hard snow and a 3D Contour Base 3.0 for epic float in pow, the Flagship carves, stomps or straight lines with unbelievable precision. The Flagship’s tapered shape sinks the tail in pow for better float and quicker turns, while the Engineered Veneer Topsheet, Flax/Basalt Power Stringers and new Power Core add torsional response and reduce board chatter in rough snow.
New for 2021, the Flagship has Float Pack inserts that give you the option of super setback stance on the deepest days.

A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and camber between the bindings. The rockered tip floats the board’s nose and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and response. A slightly rockered tail maintains the power and stability of a traditional board but helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.
"My experience is that most falls in freeriding start from the nose of the board – you either go over the bars in powder, the nose gets caught under a weird crust and tosses you, or you hit a hard tranny at the contact point of the tip and get bucked. Directional Rocker eliminates most of these falls." - Jeremy Jones
Sustainable strength. Jones exclusive Flax / Basalt stringers are made with 100% natural fibers and help transfer power to the edges and absorb board chatter.
Multi-axis, stitched fiberglass laminate that offers a precise and responsive ride in any terrain or snow conditions.
Triple-density full wood core featuring hardwood bamboo stringers for added pop and durability plus paulownia for weight savings.
Sintered 9900 Base
Made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and Carbon. This ultra-fast base is easy to repair thanks to the UHMW-PE.
Producing two or more base color options minimizes p-tex waste. Order may be filled with either color. Color does not vary by size.
Wend Natural Wax
Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
Welcome to the future. 3D Contour Bases are next-level tech that enhances glide + float and delivers unmatched turn flow and fluidity in any snow condition.

1. Traction Tech 3.0
Traction Tech 3.0 features three bumps per edge (front binding, board center, back binding). The middle bump is slightly bigger than the outside bumps for better grip.
2. Progressive sidecut
At the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually increasing the sidecut 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.
Tapered shape, 12.5 mm
The tapered shape sinks the tail in pow for better float and quicker turns.
How a board glides in powder, crust, corn or any snow more than an inch deep, is dictated by it’s 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 coming out from behind the tip 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 nose without the ‘snow plow’ rounded tip and it’s extra swing weight. - Jeremy Jones
Directional Flex Pattern
Off set tip-to-tail flex pattern that is designed for directional freeride boards. The nose, center of board and tail are slightly different stiffnesses to help lift the nose, sink the tail and improve stability at speed.
Jones exclusive wood core profiling that offers a stable and playful board feel. The wood core is softer between the feet for easy turn initiation and stiffer in the nose and tail for stability riding through uneven terrain and landing airs.
Ultimate performance on day one. Forever Flex is a new production process that helps break-in the woodcore and stringers so board flex is even and responsive right out of the wrapper.
Buy it, mount it, rip it! All boards leave the factory ready to ride with de-tuned tip + tail, edges angled at 90°/0° and bases waxed with Wend natural wax.
