Product Details - 2013 Jones Women's Mothership Snowboard
The Mothership is an ash-wood topped beauty built for women who live for steep terrain and fast lines. Mellow Magne-Traction keeps the Mothership solid on ice, while the blunt nose, directional rocker and camber underfoot deliver the float and stability necessary to bomb rowdy terrain. Big mountain lady rippers who like to ride fast and take chances will want the Mothership.

Directional Rocker - A hybrid rocker/ camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker than tail rocker and slight camber between the bindings. The rockered tip gives the nose added float and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot gives you added 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. "My experience is that most falls in freeriding start from the nose of the board - you either go over the bars in powder, the nose gets caught under a weird crust and tosses you, or you hit a hard tranny at the contact point of the tip and get bucked. Directional Rocker eliminates most of these falls." - Jeremy Jones
Mellow Magne-Traction - Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Magne-Traction improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of the snowboard. "Magne-Traction is a key ingredient for rockered board designs. Adding rocker to your board makes it glide more smoothly, but it makes it harder to really lock into your turns and hold a solid edge. Magne-Traction is crucial to offset the drift typical of rocker flex patterns." - Jeremy Jones
Blunt Nose - "How a board glides in powder, crust, corn or any snow condition more than an inch deep is dictated by its front contact point and just past it. Next time you are in soft snow watch how much snow comes over the corner of the nose near the contact point. The billowing snow means you are plowing through it which is obviously slowing you down. By adding a blunt nose you get the float benefits of a much longer board tip without the added length or swing weight." - Jeremy Jones
FSC Full Wood Core - This full poplar and beech core gives the board more solid snap. FSC wood cores come from forests that are managed to meet the social, economical and ecological needs of present and future generations.
Carbon Stringers - Carbon stringers are added to improve pop and torsional stiffness and increase the longevity of the flex profile. This lightweight layer helps the board perform the same on day 100 as it did on day 1 - precise and playful.
Triax Fiberglass - All Jones snowboards include Triax fiberglass, utilizing dual density fibers to strengthen high impact zones without adding weight or changing the overall flex of their boards.
Recycled Sintered Base - The fastest natural base material available. Sintered bases are durable, absorb wax faster and retain wax longer. Jones' sintered base has added carbon nano particles as well as additives which create a better glide. This base is specifically developed by Nidecker, and is very resistant to impact. P-Tex scraps are recycled into new bases.
Flip Flop Base Tech - By flip flopping the base graphic colors, P-Tex waste is drastically reduced by increasing the material yield.
Wood Topsheet - This wood topsheet dampens the ride for chatter-free performance. The natural material also eliminates some plastic and lacquer which cuts down on waste and weight.
ALU Protect - State of the art strength aluminum tip protectors. Elastomer is bonded to the aluminum to absorb vibrations.
