Designed to harvest the goods in the deepest recesses of the backcountry, the Jones Ultra Stratos Splitboard uses next-level technology to deliver amazing performance in a super light package.
Less weight means longer days and more vertical, so you can access terrain you've only dreamed about in the past, but the Stratos is no lightweight when it comes to the descent. Board feel is about as close to a "Solid" as they get, made better by the new Karakoram Ultra Clips 3C and the superb fit of the Traction Tech 3.0 inner edges. This is a board for the dedicated splitter who knows what they want and won't stop until they get it.

- Flex Rating: Stiff
- Core/Laminates: Carbon, Koroyd®, Wood
Directional Rocker – A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and camber between the bindings. The rockered tip floats the board's nose and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot provides 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.
Flex Rating – 7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)
Forever Flex – All Jones boards are broken in using specialized machinery that mimics extreme riding use to help stabilize the flex and rocker profile of a board for it's lifetime.
10mm Taper – The tapered shape sinks the tail in pow for better float and quicker turns.
3D Contour Base 3.0 – Freeride focused 3D Contour Base featuring a 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose and 0 - 7mm of spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point.
Blunt Nose – "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
Fusion Core – Jones' lightest wood core yet. Made from mostly paulownia with specifically positioned pockets of poplar for improved durability and response.
Fusion Carbon – Two-stage lamination process reduces weight and adds durability
Koroyd® – Developed for the aerospace industry, Koroyd® absorbs vibrations and adds response at a fraction of the weight of wood.
Recycled ABS – ABS plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. Jones improves the sustainability of their snowboards by using only recycled plastic.
Inside and Outside Traction Tech 3.0 – Traction Tech 3.0 features three bumps per edge (front binding, board center, back binding). The middle bump is slightly bigger than the outside bumps for better grip.
Outer Oversized Recycled Edges – All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
Inner Thin Recycled Edges – Advancements in ski edge durability allow Jones to use thinner edges to save weight.
Textured Eco-Plastic Topsheet – Bio-plastic topsheet made from Castor beans featuring a subtle texture for added durability. This eco-material is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant and water/snow repellent (snow sticks less to topsheet).
Bio Resin – All Jones boards are now built with bio-based, renewable epoxy instead of petroleum based epoxy. The raw materials used to make Super Sap Bio-Resin are co-products or waste products of other plant-based industrial processes. Producing Super Sap requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions than conventional epoxy.
Bolt-Less Bridge – The Bolt-Less Bridge eliminates split clip attachment hardware from the base of the board by re-profiling the wood core at the clips. The wood core under the clips is thicker providing better torsional stiffness and a more powerful connection at the split clips.
Factory Tuned – All Jones snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
Karakoram Ultra Clips 3C with Tip Lock – Karakoram Ultra Clips 3C feature a three point tension system. Ultralight and exclusive to Jones, these clips redefine split clip technology. They are also adjustable so you can maintain even compression as your splitboard ages.
Wend Natural Wax – Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
