A flagship is defined as 'the best or most important thing owned or produced by a particular organization,' so it's quite fitting that Jones' deck lived up to its namesake and landed on this list. Testers were drawn toward this beefy board for its big mountain capabilities. "Ripping board! This deck could hold an edge, slashed through chunder, and has really well balanced powerful pop," gleaned one of our taller testers. This directional deck features a hybrid profile that puts trusty camber in the center, and rocker in the nose and tail. This allows for the true predictability and power, while also keeping things catch-free while initiating turns and landing switch. The wide nose provides fluidity and float, and helps when plowing through the heavier white fluff. This deck was one of the stiffest in the test, and testers liked that it was built for bigger, all mountain excursions, both in bounds and out. "Seems pretty stiff to try and ollie every little bump, but dropping cliffs on this board would be the shit!" Surmised one lady, post tram lap. Though our testers deemed this deck stiff, the core has been reprofiled this year for better torsional response.
Camber: Hybrid--camber with early-rise nose and tail
