Splitboard Test Results  Testinfo

The Jones Ultracraft is extremly stiff, so it has a great uphill performance and magnific edgegrip, if you have the power to push it in.

In powder it is extremely floaty and makes lots of fun to ride

The Ultracraft Split gives as much as fun while riding steep treelines, narrow chutes and open faces. It is one of the best boards in the market.

The reason why it wasn`t selected was the price.

With the same agile shape as the Hovercraft but built with the Jones Ultra Construction. The Ultra Construction eliminates as much as material as possible and reduces the weight around 25 % compared to the Hovercraft Split. 2016 it got a bit lighter again due to the Ultra ISO Core. It is a mixture of foam, fibre and reinforcements combined with wood. It comes with sintered Ultrabase for better gliding and more durability of the base.
