One of the most playful boards in the Jones line up, the Airheart is primed and ready for all-mountain exploration. Experienced riders with a penchant for freestyle, whether that’s in the park or using the whole mountain as your own personal playground, should take note of this little firecracker.

Everything about the Airheart was built for carving low and popping high, the camber dominant body injecting a major dose of life and dynamic energy into the board. Whether you’re boosting sidehits, slashing windlips or slicing up hardpack, the Airheart is primed and ready for take-off.

“This is your best of both worlds profile, powerful when you need it, playful when you want it”

Rocker zones in the nose and tail give you the versatile feel and added float in deeper snow, with the spoon like shape easing up turn initiation. This is your best of both worlds profile, powerful when you need it, playful when you want it.

Jones have been stepping up their game over the last few years, the tech on offer in all of their boards is quite frankly staggering, and the Airheart is a prime example of just how far ahead of the curve they are. It showcases Jones’ floaty 3D Contour Base 2.0, their ultra grippy Traction Tech 1.0 and their state-of-the-art ingredients.

“If you’ve got the skills to wield it it’s gonna be hard to beat”

Like every all-mountain board, the Airheart will get beaten out by something more specific when push comes to shove, but unlike your uber directional swallowtail or your mega soft park noodle, it can handle anything you choose to throw its way. Floaty in the powder, aggressive on piste and poppy and dynamic in the park, the Airheart is your one stop shop for all things rad.

The premium materials and more aggressive nature of the Airheart mean that the barrier for entry is a little higher, and as such it’s not the most suitable board for novice riders. It’s made for jumping, slashing, sliding and gliding all over the hill, and if you’ve got the skills to wield it it’s gonna be hard to beat.

Tester’s Verdict 2019/20

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.”
