The Jones Ultracraft Splitboard is constructed to slay the seemingly impossible, hard-to-reach backcountry lines, where every ounce effects the long, uphill skin. As such, the Ultracraft Splitboard is nearly a pound lighter (about 25% less) than the comparable Hovercraft Split, thanks to Jones' top-secret Ultra Construction. This construction technique eliminates all excess weight by combining extensive carbon reinforcement with an Ultra ISO-Core.
Also destroying the notion that a lighter construction yields a weaker board, the Ultracraft Splitboard's rock-solid demeanor is tested and proven by the pros. You'll find its slightly tapered, directional shape and Directional Rocker profile enhances float on the deepest days, without sacrificing edgehold or straight-line stability. Plus, Mellow Magne-Traction along the inside and outside edges improve its ability to side-hill on ascents and carve steep hardpack on the way down.
Its Ultra ISO-Core shaves weight by combining stringers of ISO-Core, which is a foam and fiberglass composite, with beech stringers along the edges for beefed-up durability. TeXtreme carbon shaves even more weight (specifically 20-30%) compared to conventional carbon, yet won't sacrifice the board's snappy-light feel and torsionally responsive flex. Add in a brand new Sintered Ultra Base that's infused with fluoro and paraffin-based additives for unmatched glide and durability in the widely variable backcountry conditions.
JONES HOVERCRAFT SPLITBOARD 2017 160
Like that short but muscular wrestler dude you knew in high school, the JonesHovercraft Splitboard floats like a butterfly until it's time, then moves with cat-like agility in tight quarters. A tremendous pow board in trees and tight chutes, the Hovercraft blends a long, floaty rockered nose with a stiff mini-swallowtail that provides powerful bite. The new beveled Spoon 4.0 shape delivers improved float and smoother turn shapes, as well as a less hooky feel.

Gnu MullAir C3 Snowboard 16/17 159
Soulful turns down big-mountains, stylish methods from pillow drops, and easy-floating finesse await you when you're strapped into the Gnu MullAir C3 Snowboard. The go-to choice for Swiss slayer Nicolas Muller, the MullAir offers the stability, precise carving, and spring-loaded snap for launching off natural hits, charging steep faces, and ripping across deep snow. Its directional shape features a substantial set-back, combined with slight tapering for effortless float on those bottomless powder days.
The powerful C3-BTX profile is predominately camber, with subtle rocker between the feet for freestyle freedom. This camber-dominant profile offers locked-in edge hold on high-speed carves, but with a bit of extra playfulness and forgiveness. The slight rocker also helps you float in powder without burning up your rear leg after a few runs.
Serrated Magne-Traction edges tenaciously grip across hardpack and ice, allowing you to ride down sketchy chutes and scraped-clean lines without slipping out. The Aspen and Columbian Gold core creates a light, lively feel underfoot, with a triax/biax fiberglass delivering the best of torsional control and quick turn initiation. The Bio Beans topsheet eliminates toxic coatings for an environmentally friendly construction. There's also a fast-gliding, incredibly resilient sintered base that's ideal for ripping the steep and deep.
