The Mountain Twin is a versatile directional twin designed for playful shredders who want one board that can ride-it-all.
It's built to shred the whole mountain like it's an endless skatepark without sacrificing float in pow or stability for bombing lines. The Twin's shape features blunt tips for reduced swing weight, Traction Tech edges to keep you locked in on firm snow and a 3D Contour Base that makes every turn more effortless. With a mid-stiff twin flex and a CamRock profile the Mountain Twin excels at poppin' pillows and pressin' boxes while it's also an easy board to turn and finesse in tight terrain. To complete the performance package, the Mountain Twin has a super fast and durable Sintered 8000 base and added stance options with the Freestyle/Freeride Stance pack.

The Mountain Twin is the most playful board in the Jones quiver and is equally at home in the park, pow or on piste. (The Ultra Mountain Twin is the same size and shape as the standard Mountain Twin, but it’s super charged with carbon stringers and a faster base for more stability at speed.)
Whether you lean toward riding park or riding pow may be influential in your Mountain Twin size choice. If you lean toward jibbing and hitting jumps you’ll want a slightly smaller board than if you’re looking for a new pow stick.
The 151 and 154 cm are ideal size for smaller, lighter riders (110-150 lbs / 49-86 kg). The most popular size for average size guys is the 157 cm. With the blunted tips, the 157 cm floats like a traditional 159 cm but is still a great park size. If you are little bigger or heavier than average, or you're looking for a pow board, check out the 160 cm or the 162W cm.
For those with decent sized but not huge feet (US 10-11.5) check out the mid-wide 159W for park and the 160 for pow. If you have really big feet (US 12+) then the 165W or 168W will be your best bet to avoid heel drag.
