Probably the best snowboard for freeriding, the Jones The Flagship Snowboard is a premier big mountain weapon ideal for speed, stability, stomping airs, and charging down the mountain for a Heini down below. This best snowboard for freeriding is the combination of 25 years of freeriding experience and knowledge, rigorous testing, and the latest construction technologies. The Flagship features Magne-Traction, a directional rocker and camber underfoot for the highest overall performance in even the most demanding terrain and conditions. You can buy this Jones The Flagship Snowboard for a price of $500.
"The rockered tip gives the nose added float and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot gives you added edge hold and response. A slightly rockered tail maintains the power and stability of a traditional board but helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch."
"The Flagship, Hovercraft, and the Solution all feature a BLUNT NOSE that extends the profile and width of the board further toward the tip than a traditional board. Increasing the volume of the nose and tapering the tip profile at a much flatter angle than normal improves float by reducing the drag of the nose against the snow."
"Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Magne-Traction improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board. The Flagship, Mountain Twin, and the Solution all feature a refined Magne-Traction design where the bumps are biggest between your bindings for maximum edge control and smaller outside your feet allowing you to feather your turns without catching an edge."
