– Leaves changing color, cooler temperatures, kids returning to school, and the Jones Ultra Aviator snowboard…?
For most people, the transition from summer to fall is evidenced by the changing weather… however, after working in the ski and snowboard industry for a number of years, it’s really the UPS delivery guy that’s responsible for signaling the change of seasons for me. Weird? Probably, but this is the time of year when all of the new gear arrives for the approaching winter! We have been busy unboxing all of the latest boards, boots, bindings, etc. indicating that Champagne Powder days are right around the corner!
The arrival of the brand new Jones Ultra Aviator snowboard is the perfect example of why this is a great time of year… Based on the award winning Aviator from last season, the “Ultra” version uses the same cambered bend profile with the uniquely beveled base at the contact points (providing a less-catchy feel), but drops some significant weight thanks to a brand new core. Air Lightness technology is exclusive to the Ultra Aviator and drastically reduces overall weight by eliminating the wood core in the tip and the tail in favor of a featherweight carbon composite. Weighing in at just 5 pounds (and slightly stiffer than the standard Aviator), this could be the coolest new board for the upcoming season!
There’s plenty of fresh arrivals to check out at the ‘Haus now with more arriving daily. Looking to get a jump on the winter season? We can help with that. See you at the ‘Haus!
