Why we chose the Jones Stratos Snowboard: A freeride shape with freestyle flair. The culmination of a decade of Jones R&D.
It may have a name that sounds like a second-tier-Doctor-Who-villain, but this monochrome missile boasts matinee-idol good looks. The Jones Stratos was one of our favourite new releases last year, and is offering the same killer combination of freestyle and freeride in 2021/22.
It undoubtedly looks like a powder-chaser, but on closer inspection it’s clear that the Stratos can turn its hand to just about any terrain or riding style. And while we stress that a board’s aesthetics should always be considered a bonus rather than a reason to buy it… Just. Look. At. It.
“We’d invite just about every intermediate to advanced rider to consider this one”
Who Is The Jones Stratos For?
The ever-expanding Jones line has something for everyone (provided you actually want to ride the actual mountain and not just the handrails in the car park), so it’s worth making sure you’ve matched up with the right one. That said, the Stratos has true all-mountain appeal; we’d invite just about every intermediate to advanced rider to consider this one.
