The jones ultra mountain twin is a very versatile all-mountain freestyle board that can bomb any terrain, carve really well, and even ride switch quite well. It's definitely not a beginner friendly board, but it could be a solid choice for someone who is looking to progress in the freestyle realm without moving up to a full sized freeride board.
On groomer the jones ultra mountain twin is really stable and smooth with very little chatter. It's also pretty fast for an all-mountain board. It doesn't excel on speeding though. It's a more playful and fun ride at lower speeds.
This is a stiff directional twin with a medium flex. It isn't easy to butter but it does a great job of it when ridden with a lot of edge pressure. Its consistent flex makes it much easier to hold butters than other soft directional boards I've ridden.
It does a good job in powder as well but doesn't stand out above other boards I've ridden. It's a more freestyle oriented board than a pure freeride board so I'm not surprised that its float isn't great.
I took this board to Powder Mountain with Snowboard Expert Everett Pelkey and put it to the test on carving, freestyle, and freeride. Watch the video to see how it performed.
