Jones Youth Prodigy Snowboard
The Prodigy is our all-mountain directional twin built for hard-charging kids.
Most kids boards are made with very basic materials and are designed for first-time riders. Not the Prodigy. The Prodigy features the same premium materials and performance features as Jones’ adult models and offers quick learning young riders a solid foundation to keep progressing their skills. The spooned nose+tail edges on the Prodigy’s 3D Contour Base 1.0 allow for fluid ‘no catch’ turn initiation while the CamRock profile keeps the board floating in any snow condition. The Prodigy is also designed to be a little narrower than most other kids boards so small-footed riders can learn to rail turns with the board up on edge.
3D Contour Base 1.0
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.
About 3D Contour Bases
3D Contour Bases are designed to make every run smoother and every turn more effortless by reducing the drag of the board tips. 3D Contour Bases enhance glide and improve float helping you ride faster and with better flow.
1. Traction Tech 1.0
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.
Traction Tech is a critical feature for rockered boards. Rocker improves glide in mixed conditions, but the decreased edge contact makes it harder to really lock into your turns and hold a solid edge. Traction Tech is crucial to offset the edge drift of rocker. – Jeremy Jones
2. Progressive sidecut
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.
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
Twin flex pattern
Balanced flex pattern with equal stiffness and torsional response in the nose and tail.
Jones exclusive wood core profiling that offers a stable and playful board feel. The wood core is softer between the feet for easy turn initiation and stiffer in the nose and tail for stability riding through uneven terrain and landing airs.
A unique rocker/camber flex pattern defined by evenly balanced tip and tail rocker and camber between the bindings. Camrock improves freestyle finesse by keeping your tips playful while maintaining the power and pop of camber underfoot.
Built with the finest tech and materials
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.
Wend Natural Wax
Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
Extruded 5000 Base
Classic base material built for durability.
A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.
Forever Flex is a new manufacturing process that helps stabilise the flex and rocker of a board for its lifetime.
All Jones Snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
Recycled ABS Sidewalls
ABS Plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. We improve the sustainability of our snowboards by using only recycled plastic.
Oversized recycled edges
All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
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.
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.
Know your board
The dimensions of a snowboard define how that board performs on snow. The dimension specs of all our models are fine tuned for specific styles of riding. Understand how waist width, flex and sidecut and stance dimensions effect board performance to find the best board for you.
