THE ULTIMATE BLEND OF BIG MOUNTAIN POWER WITH FREESTYLE FINESSE

The Aviator takes all of Jones's freeride knowledge and condenses it into a freestyle inspired chassis to create one of the most versatile boards in the Jones line. This unique culture clash between two very different genres of snowboarding creates a genuinely stunning snowboard that is equally at home charging backcountry steeps and corduroy groomers as it is lapping the pro-line in the park. However, don't be fooled into thinking that this is a soft and playful freestyle stick, this isn't a board for the park rail rat or urban jibber. The Aviator is all about delivering mind-bending performance with a more balanced and reassuring feel. This ensures that no matter what type of terrain or type of riding you do, you can be confident that you're on a board that will let you push to the limit.

Rider Style
Experienced riders who want the balance of a freestyle board with the power and response of a big mountain charger

Shape Overview
This Aviator's innovative directional twin shape has been specially designed to deliver a responsive and dynamic ride across the whole mountain without sacrificing that balanced feel that you only get with a more freestyle focused board. To this Jones then add their state of the art Traction Tech 1.0 sidecut which places small bumps along the edges creating additional bite points. These bumps work like the serrations on a bread knife, increasing edge hold without sacrificing slow speed stability.

Profile
Power Camber: The Aviators Power Camber profile could best be described as an evolution of the traditional camber profile. By tapering the camber radius to flat at the tip and tail Jones have created a board that has that powerful, solid and locked on feel through the turn, but one which won't bite you if you want to back it off. Those flat zones also create a stable platform just before the tail kick helping you to pre-load ollies for pop off kickers.

3D Contour Base 2.0
One of the key ingredients to the Aviator's versatility is the innovative 3D Contour 2.0 base profile. This state of the art base shape features an even balance of 4mm spoon bevel in the nose and 4mm spoon bevel in the tail. This delivers three distinct benefits to the rider, the first of these is that it creates a smoother transition from edge to edge. Secondly it lifts those contact points clear of the snow creating a smooth, buttery freestyle feel, and finally, it helps channel snow flow down under the board creating additional lift in the pow.

Construction
Although the Aviator has been in the line for a few years now it's construction has always been constantly evolving and keeping up to date with new technology, and this seasons board is no exception. Heading up the high-quality build is the Power Core. This dynamic wood core combines poplar and lightweight paulownia with poppy bamboo to deliver a powerful and responsive flex. This is then combined with all new structural layers which blend tri-ax glass fibre with advanced Carbon/Innegra reinforcing. This unique material has many properties that are ideally suited to snowboard construction but most importantly they add strength and durability to the board while giving unrivalled shock absorption. This ensures that the new Aviator not only delivers stunning performance, but it still feels smooth and progressive to ride.

Base
Underlining the Aviators high-performance credentials, is the super-fast and super tough 9900 sintered base. This high-end base material is made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene and Carbon.
