Don't call me a pow board, pow board. The Women's Hovercraft Split is purpose built to surf the earth and features a directional shape that truly shines in the backcountry.
It's nimble, squat outline provides the float of a much longer board, and the short running length makes it super maneuverable in the tight trees and skinning up. The blunt nose and directional rocker of the Hovercraft keep you surfin 'on top of the soft stuff, while the stiff tail keeps you stable through any unexpected crust. For added edge grip on icy skin tracks or firm descents, the Hovercraft Split features Inner / Outer Traction Tech 2.0 edges. For added ECO-performance, the Hovercraft Split is built with an Engineered Veneer Topsheet.

Women's Hovercraft Splitboard specifications
3D Contour Base 3.0
Freeride focused 3D-base contours featuring an even balance of 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose and 7mm of spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point.
1. Traction Tech 3.0
Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Traction Tech improves your grip by adding multiple points of contact along the length of your board.
Traction Tech is a critical feature for rockered boards. Rocker improves glide in mixed conditions, but the decreased edge contact makes it harder to really lock into your turns and hold a solid edge. Traction Tech is crucial to offset the edge drift of rocker. - Jeremy Jones
2. Progressive sidecut
At the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased to the contact point. Gradually increasing the distance to the contact point delivers a more abrupt transition.
How a board glides in powder, crust, corn or any snow more than an inch deep, is dictated by it's front contact point and just past it. Next time you are in soft snow watch how much snow comes over the corner of the nose near the contact point. The billowing snow coming out from behind the tip means you are plowing through it which is obviously slowing you down. By adding a blunt nose you get the float benefits of a much longer nose without the 'snow plow' rounded tip and it's extra swing weight. - Jeremy Jones
Directional flex pattern
Off set tip-to-tail flex pattern that is designed for directional freeride boards. The nose, center of board and tail are slightly different stiffnesses to help lift the nose, sink the tail
A rocker hybrid / camber flex pattern defined by rocker then rocker rocker and camber between the bindings. The rockered tip floats the board's nose and improves maneuverability while underfoot provides edge hold and response. A rockered tail maintains the power and stability of a traditional board and helps keep the tail catch-free.
"My experience is that most falls in freeriding start from the nose of the board - you either go over the bars in powder, the nose gets caught under a weird crust and tosses you, or you hit a hard tranny at the contact point of the tip and get bucked. Directional Rocker eliminates most of these falls. " - Jeremy Jones

Sintered 8000 Base
New super durable material made from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and carbon. Base is easily repairable, highly wax absorbent and wicked fast.
Producing two or more basic color options minimizes p-tex waste. Order may be filled with color. Color does not vary by size.
Wend Natural Wax
Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.

Bio Resin is a bio-based epoxy made with 27% plant-based carbon instead of petroleum-based carbon. The organic raw materials used to make bio-resin are co-products or waste products of plant-based industrial processes. Bio-resin requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions to produce than conventional epoxy.
Oversized Recycled Edges
All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
Recycled ABS Sidewalls
ABS plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. We improve the sustainability of our snowboards by using only recycled plastic.
All Jones Snowboards are factory-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
Forever Flex is a new manufacturing process that helps stabilize the flex and rocker of a board for its lifetime.
Engineered Wood Veneer
New composite wood veneer topsheets. Wood veneer topsheets dampen ride and absorb board chatter.
Full wood premium poplar core than offers fun pop, even flex and solid durability.
