The Airheart is here to kick ass and take names. If you’re a strong rider looking for an absolute hellcat to take a spin on then this might just be what you’re looking for.

Slightly more freestyle focused than the majority of Jones’ offerings the Airheart is built for jumping, slashing and spinning your way around the mountain. With a long camber profile, it allows you to load up your ollies and springboard out for maximum pop. The rocker in the nose and tail makes it a little less catchy when trying to land spins or just generally cruising.

“A piste killer too the Airheart has Traction Tech down the edges that increases hold on the hardpack and the ice by increasing the number of contact points”

As well as the rocker it features Spoon 2.0 which is bevels in the nose and tail to further accentuate the lift. This will give you smoother turn initiation and will make it float easier when you hit that sweet, sweet, pow stash.

No danger of slowing down the Airheart has a super high spec sintered base, perfect for picking up speed on the in-run or for those aggressive top to bottom laps. Keep it waxed and you’ll be laughing.

A piste killer too the Airheart has Traction Tech down the edges that increases hold on the hardpack and the ice by increasing the number of contact points. The slightly stiffer flex will keep it stable at speed as you’re hitting mach 10 down those groomers and will plow through any lumps or bumps that dare to get in your way.

The Airheart doesn’t take any prisoners, so make sure you’re a confident shredder before strapping in. For those who can handle the sauce though – you’ll fly like Amelia. 

Tester’s Verdict

Joy DutchWhitelines

“I rode the Airheart several years ago and found it too stiff and cumbersome, so when I tried it this season, I didn’t have super high hopes. I was pleasantly surprised that I had a whale of a time on it.

“On piste it was rock solid on its edges”

On piste it was rock solid on its edges and getting low into carves felt really natural. It felt stable at speed and I didn’t feel it slip out at all even when charging full gas.

We got some fresh snow the previous night, so taking the Airheart to a few bowls was on the cards. It floated well enough, but I was most impressed with its manoeuvrability through the tighter tree runs.

It’s a bit more freestyle focused than the other Jones boards, but don’t take that to mean jibby. It works well for kickers, sidehits and dropping features but it’s not what I would be picking for riding rails. It’s got a very lively, snappy feel to it, and it wants to boost up and jump around.

It felt much lighter and nimble this year, and it’s an impressive board that I’d be happy to ride all over the mountain.”
