Snowboard Frontier Jones
Hey rider, here you will find a summary of everything you need to know about the JONES FRONTIER BOARD
.the Frontier has one goal, to make the day fun if you are looking for floatation and precision but don't want to give up maneuverability and support on accumulations, track edges and side hits. The construction is important with a 3D base and a directed profile that help in surfing fresh snow with agility, the not too heavy core is perfect on abandoned snow and returns sensations of stability and intuitiveness when you try supports and tricks.
FRONTIER JONES TABLE
FRONTIER, MEN'S TABLE by JONES that rocks. The colors of the insoles can be randomly alternated between those proposed in the product image.
FRONTIER Directional Rocker Profile: a hybrid camber with a more rockered tip than the tail and a classic camber between the bindings. The raised tip helps flotation and maneuverability, while the one at the tail helps maintain the response and stability of a normal board while avoiding various slides.
FRONTIER FSC Classic core Core: poplar, poplar and more poplar, this is how this core is made a bit like in the old days. Premium wood that offers fun pops, consistent flex across the board and great durability.
FRONTIER Biax Fiberglass: thanks to the glass fibers positioned at 90 the board gets pop without compromising maneuverability and ease of tricks.
FRONTIER Eco-Plastic Topsheet: topsheet composed of bio plastics which make it very light, resistant to scratches and impacts and water-repellent. Plus you save the whales.
FRONTIER Oversizes recycled edges: Oversized recycled steel edges for greater durability and greater production sustainability
FRONTIER Wend Natural Wax: Jones boards are ready to ride straight out of the shop and are production waxed with WEND natural wax
FRONTIER Factory Tuned: All Jones snowboards are de-tuned at the tip and tail, so you can go straight from the shop to the mountain.
FRONTIER Forever Flex: Forever Flex is a manufacturing process that helps stabilize a board's flex and rocker profile throughout its life. Our boards finish the first stages of production slightly stiffened and are then "run in" with specialized machinery that simulates the extreme use of the board. By flexing fresh board fibers and factory epoxy, the materials settle into their final arrangement as if using the board for 20 days. This process helps us reduce manufacturing tolerances so that the board you purchase has a more precise flex and rocker profile, which will change less as the board is used.

Directional boards have a light or more accentuated directionality, and a calibrated sidecut to favor more aggressive riding with the preferred foot. The sidecut is therefore asymmetrical, the board in question will be extremely stable and powerful on the slopes as well as when taking off/landing from the most important structures, and will have excellent flotation in fresh snow. The sensations in switch are however very good, they are boards recommended for users looking for performance in conduction without sacrificing the possibility of landing in rotation.
Rocker Camber Rocker
ROCKER CAMBER ROCKER
Profile with great grip, with increased handling thanks to the rockers and certainly a considerable propensity for powder.
This product is suitable for boys.
BALANCED MEDIUM FLEX
It is the value that indicates the flexural resistance of a snowboard. A rigid board (high flex) is more reactive and gives a more immediate, safe and stable response while a soft board (low flex) is more manageable and suitable for performing freestyle maneuvers.
Board for All Mountain use, safe and stable on the slopes and high-performance in off-piste freeriding.
Standard width board suitable for feet up to approximately 45.
HOW TO CHOOSE A SNOWBOARD?
Leaving aside the issue of size and width, which you can easily select in our configurator depending on your type of riding, let's look at the fundamental aspects of a board together.
Camber is the curvature that the board assumes when you place it on a flat surface on the insole side, and depending on the type of fold it will have different characteristics.
Let's examine the various types of camber together then!
A classic bridge, with contact points on the snow far from the bindings. This arch places your weight exactly on the contact points on the snow, amplifying the force imparted to the edge. For this reason it is certainly the most precise camber and one that guarantees the best grip. Furthermore, being a bow, it stores the force imparted by your little legs and shoots you like an arrow at the slightest hint of an ollie. So on which boards do we find traditional camber? Obviously, on boards that require grip, precision and power. Did someone say freeride-speed boards? Sure, but all-mountain boards are also crazy about this construction as are some high-end freestyle boards.
REVERSE CAMBER, BANANA, ROCKER
Take the camber, tell her you love her, flip it over like a turtle and you'll get the rocker. With characteristics that are the opposite of its predecessor, it unloads the rider's weight away from the snow, resulting in a board that is very easy to maneuver. Unfortunately the advantages are over, because our board will have little grip on the track, little response and little precision when landing from jumps. Almost only freestyle boards suitable for jibbing use this type of profile.
Exactly as the most perceptive of you (i.e. few) will have understood, here we have the advantages of the two previous cambers while minimizing their critical points. The edge is entirely in contact with the snow but is not pre-loaded by an arched shape, therefore good grip, good pop, good precision, good maneuverability. This is just what we call the happy medium. Boards that use this type of profile are generally absolutely all-round freestyle boards, with which you can expect excellent performance wherever you take them.
What will happen if we combine traditional camber in the center and rocker at the tip and tail also known as camrock, or rocker-camber-rocker? We get a board with great grip, with increased maneuverability thanks to the rockers, and certainly a considerable propensity for powder. On which boards would you use this profile? I would say on gritty but never difficult freestyle boards and perhaps on truly all-rounder all-mountain boards. We can play the same game with the flat and the rocker (rocker-flat-rocker), creating a hybrid similar to the camrock but with more maneuverability. So go-go freestyle boards but also some more forgiving all-mountain boards. And if instead we tried to lift the flat via two key areas, what would happen? Well we would get one of the most interesting profiles in the snowboarding world:
Great hold and great pop typical of traditional camber, which it somewhat imitates, but typical ease of flat. It is a practically ubiquitous camber (seven knowledge points for this word) that we find from freestyle boards to all-mountain boards and even some freeride boards.
GULLWING or FLYING V
That is, rocker in the middle, camber under the bindings and then more rocker. Boards that are certainly very easy to use for the first time but which can show some limitations in precision and grip, despite the camber under the bindings the general shape of the board is that of a rocker and in fact its characteristics on the snow remind us of this.
Tapered boards, in addition to the directionality, which is usually accentuated, and a sidecut designed for riding on the slopes or in the powder, have an evident asymmetry in the width of the tip and tail. The wider tip than the tail guarantees superior flotation and excellent stability at speed, allowing the manufacturer to calibrate sidecuts that guarantee very high performance when exiting corners so as not to lose speed in transitions. They are real monsters for fresh snow and for carving/speed on the slopes, and often in powder models they evolve their shapes with tails cut or modeled with the most imaginative shapes. The switch gait is possible but not extremely intuitive and above all not very useful, except to land some nice tricks and impress your friends who are still stuck with preconceptions about twins.
