The Project X is a razor sharp, ultralight all-mountain board that rides like a luxury sport sedan - powerful, with impeccable handling and a comfortable flex. Jones’ Board Engineer Xavier Nidecker designed the Project X to reflect the future of snowboard production. It’s built with our most advanced materials and construction technologies including a unique variation of ULTRA Construction that features multiple layers of Fusion Tech and Textreme Carbon instead of a traditional topsheet/fiberglass. The edges of the Spoon nose are beveled up for improved float and turn fluidity while the tail edges are beveled up for less catch. The Project X features a limited edition, hand numbered serial badge and an advanced fiberglass that improves strength by 15% without adding weight.
POWER CAMBERAn innovative traditional camber profile tweaked to offer the insane edge response of camber without the usual hang-ups. The camber radius tapers to flat toward the tips and the base is beveled up one degree at the edges from the contact points of the camber to the ends of the board. The base beveling releases the edges where they like to hook which balances the pop and directional stability of camber with a looser, less-catchy feel.
Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Traction Tech improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board.
Traction Tech is a critical feature for rockered boards. Rocker improves glide in mixed conditions, but the decreased edge contact makes it harder to really lock
into your turns and hold a solid edge. Traction Tech is crucial to offset the edge drift of rocker. — Jeremy Jones
BLUNT NOSEHow 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
PROGRESSIVE SIDECUTAt 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.
WEND NATURAL WAXJones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
SINTERED ULTRA BASEWorld Cup proven race base made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) modified with special Fluoro and Paraffin based additives for better glide and increased durability. ULTRA base is harder and faster than any other sintered base.
ULTRA ISO-CORETriple-density core featuring stringers of ISOCORE - a foam/fiberglass composite that’s as stiff as any wood but 15% lighter. Hardwood beech stringers are positioned along the edges for added durability.
TEXTREME® CARBONSpecially designed carbon fiber (12k non-crimp fabric) that is podium proven in the America’s Cup and Tour De France. TeXtreme achieves a weight savings of about 20-30% compared to conventional carbon fiber.
FACTORY TUNEDAll Jones Snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
RECYCLED ABS SIDEWALLSABS Plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. We improve the sustainability of our snowboards by using only recycled plastic.
OVERSIZED RECYCLED EDGESAll Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
FIBERGLASS REINFORCEMENTFiberglass layer improve pop in nose and tail plus increases the longevity of the flex profile. This lightweight layer helps the board perform the same on day 100 as it did on day one - precise and playful.
ECO PLASTIC TOPSHEETBio-plastic topsheet made from Castor beans. This eco-material is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant and water/snow repellent (snow sticks less to topsheet)
FUSION TECHJones exclusive production process allows traditional topsheet layer to be replaced with ultra durable epoxy layer saving weight and material.
