They say: The first ever ‘magne-traction’ split board.
We say: With a rocker-camber combo adding to pow float, and ‘magne-traction’ helping with edge hold, this rides as well as any pow board – but also beats approach skis as a way of accessing new areas.
Tester says: Binding system isn’t original, but works well. And it rides really well when joined.

- History lesson: Jones is the new snowboard brand started and run by big mountain Jeremy Jones. If you don’t know who big mountain Jeremy Jones is, you may be reading the wrong website. Google him, and that’ll tell you most of what you need to know about this brand and its approach. There’s no way we could ever fit his career history into this little section anyway…
- Ridden by: Weather-beaten men wearing backpacks and carrying carabinas. You know the sort, they never go anywhere without their ice-axe, just in case there’s a crevasse they have to abseil down to drop into a line.
