This Jones Stratos is the perfect choice for someone looking for a snowboard to ride in Australia and chase powder in Japan. The modern all-mountain ripper - ideal for freeride, carving and freestyle riding!The Shralpinist Stratos has a special topsheet graphic featuring a collection of inspiring phrases created by Jeremy Jones for his book, The Art Of Shralpinism. Beyond the graphic, the Shralpinist Stratos LTD offers the same dynamic performance as the standard Stratos. It’s a hybrid all-mountain board with a tapered directional freeride shape that’s designed for creative freeriding and all-terrain trickery.
The Jones Women's Stratos breaks all the rules. The new Women’s Stratos is a hybrid all-mountain board built with the body of a directional freeride board and the spirit of a freestyle board. The Stratos has a playful board feel thanks to a tight sidecut and friendly flex, but the 10mm of taper and 3D Contour Base 3.0 give it the float and turn performance of a pow board. The directional rocker profile and Traction Tech 3.0 keep the Stratos locked on edge accelerating into carves and the textured Eco-plastic topsheet and Basalt stringers add torsional response and reduce board chatter in rough terrain.
Board Shape: Directional
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.
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.
Sintered 9900 Base - Made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and Carbon. This ultra-fast base is easy to repair thanks to the UHMW-PE.
Ultra Core - Dual-density premium wood core made of mostly paulownia with specially positioned poplar stringers for better durability and turn power.
V-Core - Jones exclusive wood core profiling that offers a stable and playful board feel. The wood core is softer between the feet for easy turn initiation and stiffer in the nose and tail for stability riding through uneven terrain and landing airs.
Basalt Power stringers - Sustainable strength. Basalt stringers are made with 100% natural fibers and help transfer power to the edges, improve torsional response and absorb board chatter.
Bio Resin - 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.
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.
Forever Flex - Forever Flex is a new manufacturing process that helps stabilise the flex and rocker of a board for its lifetime.
Traction Tech 3.0 - Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Traction Tech improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board.
Progressive sidecut - At the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually increasing the sidecut radius towards the contact point delivers smoother turn initiation and exit as the edge tracks in and out of the snow with a less abrupt transition.
Tapered Shape 10mm - The tapered shape sinks the tail in pow for better float and quicker turns.
Float Pack - Allows super setback stance for deep pow days.
Size Guide: The Jones Stratos is amazing. Riders 49kg to 70kg will love the 149cm. Size up if your on the higher end of the guide or looking for something more stable for deeper/steeper terrain.
