The Ultralight Solution is an ultralight yet high powered directional freeride split with a mid-stiff flex that's built for pushing the limits of what’s possible in the backcountry. It's the ideal split for powerful riders who like to rip turns at top speed and ride committing technical terrain.

Speed & Turn Shape: Do-it-all / Fast & Long
3D Contour Base 3.0 Freeride focused 3D base contours featuring an even balance of 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose and 7mm of spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point.
Ultra Base Jones exclusive base material that sets new performance standards. Lab results and snow testing show 25% better wax absorption, better glide in warm/wet snow and better durability for grinding. We've also doubled the amount of wax and mixed multiple wax types for a faster factory wax in a wider range of conditions.
Wend Natural Wax Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
Fusion Core The new Fusion Core is our lightest wood core yet. The core is made from mostly Paulownia with specifically positioned pockets of poplar for improved durability and response.
Fusion Carbon This cutting edge board lay-up process is the latest evolution of our previous Fusion Tech construction and reduces board weight and improves durability by combining board materials in two stages.
Ultra Construction Ultra Construction is the redefinition of what it takes to build a snowboard. We've tested every inch of board to precisely position materials exactly where they are needed while eliminating all excess materials. Combining these innovative construction techniques with superlight wood cores and carbon fiber deliver revolutionary results. Jones Ultra boards are the lightest, yet most durable snowboards on earth.
Koroyd Koroyd is the lightest, most advanced damping core material we've ever tested. Koroyd absorbs vibrations and adds response at a fraction of the weight which enhances control and confidence.
Karakoram Ultra Clips 3C w/ Tip-Lock All new Karakoram Ultra Clips 3C featuring a three point tension system. Ultralight and exclusive to Jones, these clips redefine split clip technology. They are also adjustable so you can maintain even compression as your splitboard ages.
Inside & Outside Traction Tech 2.0 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.
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.
Quick Tension Tail Clip Built-in climbing skin tension system using pre-cut notch that eliminates the need for a traditional skin tail clip.
Inner Edge Traction Tech Inner Edge Traction Tech improves splitboard edge grip on ascent. Three sidecut bumps on each side of your binding keep you locked in on icy skin tracks no matter which way you are traversing.
Directional Rocker A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker than 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
Recycled Rounded ABS Rounded sidewall finish that improves board durability by protecting topsheet from chipping.
Bio Resin Bio Resin is a bio-based epoxy made with 27% plant-based carbon instead of petroleum-based carbon. The organic raw materials used to make bio-resin are co-products or waste products of plant-based industrial processes. Bio-resin requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions to produce than conventional epoxy.
Factory Tuned All Jones Snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
Forever Flex Forever Flex is a new manufacturing process that helps stabilize the flex and rocker of a board for its lifetime.
Outer Oversized Recycled Edges / Inner Thin Advancement in ski edge durability allow us to use thinner edges on splitboard inside edges to save weight. Outside edges are 2mm, inside edges are 1.5mm.
Stainless Steel Reinforcement Stainless steel plates are embedded into the nose and tail for improved board tip durability.
Ultralight Eco-Plastic Super damp, durable and lightweight topsheet material made from organic plant material.
