East coast slopes demand a lot from winter gear and the need for solid performance on mixed-condition, a must. The Flagship by Jones Snowboards is a free rider’s dream. Like a pair of top-notch all-terrain tires, demanding terrain and conditions are chatter and deflection free. This is accomplished through a hybrid rocker/camber flex, wide-nose and a tapered tail for ultimate manuevrability. Jones Snowboard has the pedigree too. After spending more than a decade working with R&D teams meticulously testing, tweaking, honing and rehoning to build the perfect board, pro snowboarder Jeremy Jones finally released his own line in 2010. The Flagship is the company’s big gun, and its chops are proving to be best of breed – a work of Jones’ obsession.
