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.
