JONES FLAGSHIP – SNOWBOARD BUYERS’ GUIDE REVIEW
The Flagship is a beast of a board, with a super-responsive, stiff flex and a specifically widened nose to help it float in powder. It’s got what Jones calls ‘mellow Magne-traction’ along the edges to help it grip on ice, and a ‘CamRock’ combo profile that gives it some of the float of rocker boards in powder without sacrificing too much of the stability that camber brings on harder surfaces.

JONES FLAGSHIP –WHAT THE BRAND SAYS
The Flagship knows no speed limit as the Mellow Magnetraction keeps it solid on ice, while the blunt nose, directional rocker and camber underfoot deliver the float and stability necessary to bomb lines. Carbon stringers and an ash wood topsheet provide a lively but damp board feel that’s big on pop and solid on landing. When the terrain demands confidence and control the Flagship is in a league of its own. No other freeride board on the planet can match it’s power or agility. Does it sound like a superhero? The Flagship will make you feel like one.

    Just got my new flagship and now I’m looking for matching bindings. What bindings would you recommend? (Should I look for Girls ones?)
