The Jones Snowboards Mountain Twin takes the guesswork out of buying a new snowboard. If you’re looking for a little sumpin’ sumpin’ in the form of a killer all-mountain freestyle machine, then, man, this Jones Snowboard is for you.
The Jones Mountain Twin is such a perfect freestyle board that I almost felt like I was attacking the mountain like I was on a skateboard at the skate park that first time that I tested it out. Its directional twin shape gives it that skate-feel and makes switch ins and outs at the park simply buttery.
The pop and control on the Jones Mountain Twin are off the hook as well. This is thanks in large part to its CamRock hybrid-camber shape. The nifty design also keeps the board light and floaty which helps you rally through almost any snow conditions.
At the first opportunity, I loaded up my pack with the necessary gear, hiked up past the ropes and put the Mountain Twin to the true test. It was the perfect day – lots and lots of deep, fresh pow – and this Jones Snowboard only threatened to make it even better. It floats through the pillows, stays steady off of rollers and drops, and carves like a dream.
The Jones Mountain Twin comes with a few other top-quality features that add to its seemingly perfect ride. Its FSC-certified full wood core is super light and super strong. The sintered base gives it all the speed in the world and ups its durability yet another notch. Even the edge design is unique – it’s a Mellow Magne-Traction edge that sticks to the snow and gives you every bit of control over your turns.
This is a good board. That’s the plain and simple of it. Whether you ride the parks, backcountry, or the manicured slopes, you can’t go wrong with a snowboard like the Jones Mountain Twin.
Recommended for people that ride over 20 days a season, as your going to want to control the board not let it ride you..
