Why we chose the Jones Mountain Twin Snowboard: The prodigal son returns, packed to the eyeballs with Jones’ top shelf tech.
A stalwart in the Jones line, the Mountain Twin has gone under the knife this season to reinvent itself as a bona fide quiver killer with all the flair and panache you’d expect from the finale of Cirque du Soleil. After a few choice nips and tucks, the crew at Jones have taken their modern-day classic all-mountain snowboard and turned it into one of the most versatile daily drivers on the market.
An award winning and best-selling model, you’ll find the Jones Mountain Twin strapped to the feet of many a discerning rider. It’s all-terrain versatility and relatively low barrier to entry make it one of the most recognisable and requested boards in the world. As the lines between freestyle and freeride blur, we’re opening up the market for boards that can genuinely do it all, the Mountain Twin is way up at the top of that list.

The new shape is the first thing you’ll notice, Jones have eschewed the traditional rounded off tips to deliver a new blunted outline. Reducing excess material and giving you more control and balance when you get the board in the air. This state-of-the-art shape gives you the benefits of an elongated nose, but without the unwieldy and cumbersome drawbacks. It’s still a playful twin, but one that has an access all areas pass for every mountain.
The snazzy new outline is just the first of the upgrades the Mountain Twin has come back with. For the first time ever, Jones have included their 3D Contour base bevels, both the nose and the tail get 4mm of the spoon like shaping. These uplifts give the board a really surfy feel, with bags of edge to edge fluidity. You’re rolling into every turn rather than being abruptly thrown into it, whether its choppy terrain or pristine corduroy each and every turn initiation is effortlessly smooth.
