In a move that substantiates Jones Snowboards’ commitment to product quality and rider satisfaction, the company announced it will offer a three-year warranty on all Jones splitboards purchased after July 1, 2013. The announcement comes at the beginning of the company’s fourth year producing splitboards.
“Our team is riding the most demanding backcountry terrain in the world where there is no room for error,” said Jones Snowboards Founder Jeremy Jones. “We need splitboards that we can completely trust and the durability and performance of our splits has proven to meet this demand. From hitting huge lines in the Himalaya to daily laps in our backyard mountain ranges, the quality of our splitboards has been tested on all terrain. We’re proud to extend this confidence in craftsmanship to every Jones splitboard rider with this new warranty policy.”
As a company that places a premium on making only the finest products, Jones boards are manufactured in the motherland of snowsports’ equipment production—Austria. All Jones boards are made at Global Sports Technologies (GST), a company renowned for superior quality and environmental stewardship. GST board builders innately understand the sport (it is a GST company-wide policy that all employees must snowboard) and this riding experience translates into a superior quality standard. Only top quality boards worth riding leave the GST factory doors. Jones engineers also frequent the GST facility to help ensure product quality control.
“To build a good board, you need the best engineers and premium materials,” states Jones Global Brand Manager Xavier Nidecker. “The majority of our materials— including fiberglass, base, sidewalls and most woodcores—come from Europe near the GST factory. We work with European suppliers that have been trusted for decades to source the innovative materials that are the foundation of our cutting-edge products.”
The combination of Jones Snowboards’ dedication to riding, testing and working with the top material suppliers in the world drives the company’s new three-year splitboard warranty policy. For more information on product, news and happenings at Jones Snowboards, visit www.jonessnowboards.com
