The Solution is 'The Ultimate All-Terrain Splitboard' (quotes Jones) and we agree. This board is ideal for backcountry freeriding and pushing the boundaries of splitboarding. It's proven its ability with Jeremy Jones himself over countless first descents across the globe. The board is designed with a directional freeride shape, a rockered tip and semi-rockered tail, and mid-stiff flex for playful soft snow surfing, yet confidence-inspiring in challenging conditions all the same. New to the 2021 season is the boards 3D Contour Base 3.0. This means the board is hulled like a boat in the tip and tail for better edge engagement and float in deeper snow. The inside edge features Jone's proprietary In. & Out. Traction Tech 2.0 that works like a serrated knife for your inside edge to give you added traction while touring uphill. Also new are the Boltless Bridge plus Karakoram Ultra Clips and Tip-Lock Tip Clips. This new hardware system eliminates the presence of a rivet on the bottom of your board (better performance) and ensures your tip and tail clips stay locked while riding (no blow outs). This is the creme-de-la-creme of splitboards, the modern masterpiece of the snow surfing world. The Solution is the highest-tech, highest-performing, highest-reaching board out there (in our humble opinion). Jump on one this season and just be sure to buckle up tight!

This thing rips, on icy pre-season conditions in tight woods the Jones Solution was a blessing to have as it held an edge and responded quickly. On a steep icy crossing, the shape of the board allowed me to traverse switch, using my toeside edge to hold the traverse rather than my heel. In multi-layer powder the setback stance kept me stable while the nose profile sufficiently surfed the snow. All in all, a serious backcountry tool.
I just had a chance to christen my Jones Solution yesterday by uphilling Snowmass from the Mall to the Big Burn. The board made the trip up hill enjoyable, it has a great amount of flex when in deep snow, and the skins (also from Jones) were magical as I floated to the top. The ride down was a little rough, but I think that was more due to the sore bones and muscles than the board itself. Transitioning was relatively seamless, although snow had to be cleared from the edges and bindings a few times before it connected. Overall, a great board and great experience!
Great float, stompability, powerfull turns
