The Youth Solution is a high performance splitboard designed for youth and small adults.
This fully featured splitboard throws open the door for smaller riders to confidently ride advanced backcountry terrain and explore the wilderness. The Youth Solution has a directional rocker profile that excels in the inevitably variable backcountry snow conditions and a tapered directional shape that sinks the tail for better float in pow. The Youth Solution also features a 3D Contour Base 1.0 that helps eliminate edge catch and improve turn fluidity and Inner/Outer Traction Tech 3.0 edges for added grip on icy skin tracks or firm descents. For speed and durability, the Youth Solution is built with a blazing fast Sintered 8000 base and the Boltless Bridge plus Karakoram Split and Tip + Tail Clips.

Subtle yet effective 3D Contour Base featuring an even balance of 2mm spoon bevel in the nose and 2mm spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts just after the rocker point.
Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Traction Tech improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board.
Inner edge Traction Tech
Inner edge Traction Tech improves splitboard edge grip on ascent. Three sidecut bumps on each side of your binding keep your locked in on icy skin tracks no matter which way you are traversing.
At the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually increasing the sidecut radius towards the contact point delivers smoother turn initiation and exit as the edge tracks in and out of the snow with a less abrupt transition.
The Boltless Bridge eliminates split clip attachment hardware from the base of the board by re-profiling the wood core at the clips. The wood core under the clips is thicker, providing better torsional stiffness and a more powerful connection at the split clips.
The tapered shape sinks the tail in pow for better float and quicker turns.
Off set tip-to-tail flex pattern that is designed for directional freeride boards. The nose, center of board and tail are slightly different stiffnesses to help lift the nose, sink the tail and improve stability at speed.
How a board glides in powder, crust, corn or any snow more than an inch deep, is dictated by it’s 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 coming out from behind the tip 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 nose without the ‘snow plow’ rounded tip and it’s extra swing weight. - Jeremy Jones
A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and camber between the bindings. The rockered tip floats the board’s nose and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot provides 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
100% of our adult models feature high-end materials, construction technologies and sustainable manufacturing process. We accept no compromises in producing the most durable and sustainable snowboarding gear.
New super durable material made from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and carbon. Base is easily repairable, highly wax absorbent and wicked fast.
Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
Producing two or more base color options minimizes p-tex waste. Order may be filled with either color. Color does not vary by size.
A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.
Bio Resin is a bio-based epoxy made with 27% plant-based carbon instead of petroleum-based carbon. The organic raw materials used to make bio-resin are co-products or waste products of plant-based industrial processes. Bio-resin requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions to produce than conventional epoxy.
All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
ABS Plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. We improve the sustainability of our snowboards by using only recycled plastic.
All Jones Snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
Forever Flex is a new manufacturing process that helps stabilise the flex and rocker of a board for its lifetime.
Stainless steel plates are embedded into the nose and tail for improved board tip durability.
Bio-plastic topsheet made from Castor beans. This eco-material is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant and water/snow repellent (snow sticks less to topsheet).
Full wood premium poplar core than offers fun pop, even flex and solid durability.
Choose your ideal board size range using your body weight and boot size.
To decide between two sizes, choose the smaller size if your priority is maneuverability and freestyle performance, choose the larger size if you're focused on riding fast and powder performance. A shorter board will be easier to turn and a longer board will offer better float and stability riding off-piste.
