Jones Tweaker 2024 - 2023 Review by The Good Ride
Jones Tweaker Snowboard Video and Written Review
You have arrived at the Jones Tweaker Snowboard Review from an average rider with extensive board knowledge and objective perspective.
Turn Ons/Swipe Right: Soft, buttery and poppy park to mtn freestyle twin.
Turn Offs/Swipe Left: Spoon nose can feel washy in harder snow and be harder to butter.
The Jones Tweaker has a very atypical mellow poppy full camber flex with lifted sides going into a spoon nose. However, that spoon tech can be washy and a little edgeless in harder snow. Overall it’s a very easy twin to ride and it only has a short learning curve.
Update Late 2023: The Jones Tweaker isn’t changing for 2024. They are only adding more sizes so this 2023 is still 100% relevant for 2024.
Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews and this is our unfiltered opinion. We do make money from the “Where To Buy” links, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.

James’s Set Up: 21.5” Wide. Sance Angles 15/-15. Close to Reference on groomers and Set all the way back in powder.
The Jones Tweaker felt normal. Not too heavy or too light. (We don’t put in the exact weight because with wood cores there is no consistency in a boards weight)
The Jones Tweaker was the right size for my boot size and height. I felt a touch on the heavy side but I wouldn’t want to size up for mtn freestyle riding. For park riding I might even consider a 154.
Here are some ideal US boot sizes for these boards. You can of course go bigger or smaller depending on your riding style and boot’s footprint, but these work best for not turning the board slower than it should be and not having the dreaded Toe & Heel Drag.
For weight it seems like Jones’ recommended weight ranges are on the conservative side and they recommend this board for lighter riders. If it comes down to boot size or weight, I would make sure it fits your boot first and then your weight a close second. I would say that it was Ok for me to go a little over.
Shape/Camber/On Snow Feel/Ability Level
The Jones Tweaker is a true twin with a centered stance. It isn’t like the Jones Mtn Twin that is a directional twin with a set back stance and doesn’t have a slightly longer nose than tail.
The camber profile is full camber from tip to tail but with lifted sides before the spoon nose. In softer snow you can feel the spoon nose make the turning easier but in harder snow the lifted sides before the camber ends can feel a little washy. Not Bataleon TBT washy but it does need a little more weight between the feet.
The Jones Tweaker is a mellow flex for a Jones board. If I flexed it blindfolded I would have guessed it to be a YES park board. It flexes easy on a butter but pops easy too. I really like this more rubbery but poppy feel.
I like how the softer flex does well with hard microbumpy not perfectly groomed spring snow as well as how it takes on slow speed messy snow as well.
The disruption of the Jones Tweaker’s sidecut is pretty mellow but it helps compensate for the lifted ends of the effective edge before the nose. With more weight between the feet instead of sending pressure towards the tip/tail it grips pretty well in harder snow.
Don’t get the Jones Tweaker for pointing it down the hill. It’s not a full on mess but you only want this for a straight line into a kicker.
I got a lot of spring out of a turn with the Jones Tweaker but it doesn’t have the flex to really drive hard. It is a very fun mellow/playful carver and has a pretty balanced turning experience. You can make any kind of turns.
I didn’t even really talk about this in the video review but you can’t really get easy float with the Jones Tweaker. If you are into an easier floating twin look to the Jones Mtn Twin or Mind Expander Twin. They have a better centered stane float happening but the Tweaker is better than a similar true camber twin.
The Jones Tweaker is about as good as it gets going either direction. It tracks well into the tiny hits I found on the mtn but seems like it would be a very competent board for park kickers too. Pipe was not perfect but it’s pretty fun.
So overall, it’s great to see jones bring in a true twin to really round out their line. I found it a pretty fun mtn freestyle to park kind of ride.
