Splitboard Test Results


The Jones Aviator Split is for expert splitboarders with strong legs. If you have the power you can do what you like. It carves precisely on the edge and pops you out with even more speed. It is very maneuvrable and also comes up in pow.

On the climb: It is very stable and accurate on the edge, also supported by the slight Magnet Traction. You pull up your lines even in steep terrain up to the summit.

Product description


The new Aviator splitboard is the Swiss Army knife of the Jones split quiver. Steeps, pow, corn, backcountry booter sessions - no shred task is too much to ask of this full-camber directional twin splitboard. Prepare for edge hold and acceleration unlike any split you’ve ever ridden thanks to the Aviator’s 3D Power Camber profile. 3D Power Camber is an innovative positive camber profile that offers the insane edge response of camber without the usual hang-ups. The board profile crosses over into the third dimension as the base is beveled up at the edges from the contact points of the camber to the ends of the board.

Jones Aviator Split

3D base beveling releases the edges where they like to hook which balances the pop and directional stability of camber with a looser, less-catchy feel. Like all Jones splitboards, the Aviator also features inner and outer edge mellow Magne-traction for added grip on those icy spring morning tours. The mountain graphic on the Aviator Split was adapted from a series of watercolor paintings by Lake Tahoe artist Chris Crossen.
