This is just going to be a brief overview of the 2017 Jones snowboards and the categories they belong to.
Some of the boards might belong to more than 1 category.
Jones have more than 15 different boards for the 2017 line-up, so hopefully this makes it easier to look at them – separated into different categories.
Jones are very much focused on the Freeride/All-mountain end of the snowboard market so there isn’t really anything in the way of freestyle/park boards or beginner boards in the Jones line.
If you’re not sure which category best describes how you like to ride, check out the following article:
Beginner Jones Boards
Jones don’t really do beginner boards – at least not what I would classify as a beginner boards. The closest that would come to a beginner board would be the Jones Mountain Twin and the Jones Twin Sister.
Both these boards would be doable for beginners but, in most cases, not ideal (IMO).
Jib/Street Jones Boards
There aren’t any boards in the Jones lineup that could be classified in this category, IMO.
Freestyle/Park Jones Boards
Again, there aren’t any boards in the Jones lineup that I would classify in this category.
All-Mountain-Freestyle Jones Boards
Still nothing! Told you they are more all-mountain/freeride focused.
Aggressive All-Mountain-Freestyle Jones Boards
- Jones Airheart (this is the most freestyle oriented board in the Jones line-up – it’s new for the 2017 season)

Thanks for reading
I hope this has put the Jones line-up into perspective and that you now know what style each board is most suited to.
As you can see Jones’ range, IMO, is more focused on all-mountain, freeride and powder decks and this is the case more so than any other snowboarding brand that I can think of.
