Product Info

Fresh off a thorough renovation for the new season, the new Jones Mind Expander Splitboard still rocks the surf-derived shape dreamed up by Chris Christenson and Jeremy Jones, but with the stance moved forward 20cm for better hard snow performance and a re-distributed flex that's a bit softer between the bindings and a bit stiffer at the nose. As before, your enjoyment of steep sidehills is enhanced by Inner/Outer Traction Tech 1.0 edges and full Karakoram hardware make this board ride more like a solid than a split.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Christenson Surf RockerCustom tip/tail rocker profile designed by surf shaper Chris Christenson for the Mind Expander, Mountain Surfer and Storm Chaser. The nose rocker starts just inside of the front inserts and the tail rocker starts just at the back inserts. When you weight the tail of the board, the nose ramps up out of the snow for insane float on the deepest days. These subtle rocker contours match a Christenson surfboard rocker profile.

Flex

Directional Flex Pattern

Flex Rating6 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Forever FlexAll Jones boards are broken in using specialized machinery that mimics extreme riding use to help stabilize the flex and rocker profile of a board for it's lifetime.

Shape

Progressive SidecutAt 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.

Blunt Nose"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

Core

FSC™ Control Split CoreDual-density full premium wood core designed specifically for splitboards. 2:1 paulownia to poplar stringer ratio keeps core light yet ultra damp.

V-CoreBoards with V-Cores are slightly softer in the very center of the board for improved manouverability and stiffer through the tip and tail for stability and pop.

Laminates

Biax FiberglassA dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.

Stainless Steel ReinforcementStainless steel plates are embedded into the nose and tail for improved board tip durability.

Sidewalls

Recycled ABSABS plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. Jones improves the sustainability of their snowboards by using only recycled plastic.

Base

Sintered 8000 BaseNew super durable material made from Ultra High Molecular Weight polyethylene and carbon.

Flip Flop BaseFlip-Flop bases improve board sustainability by reducing p-tex waste.

Edges

Traction Tech 2.0Like 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.

Inner Edge Traction TechInner edge Traction Tech improves splitboard edge grip on ascent. Three side cut "bumps" on each side of your binding keep you locked in on icy skin tracks no matter which way you are traversing.

Oversized Recycled EdgesAll Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.

Topsheet

Eco-Plastic TopsheetBio-plastic topsheet made from Castor beans. This eco-material is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant and water/snow repellent (snow sticks less to topsheet).

Additional Features

Karakoram Ultra Clips with Tips LockUltra clips are the strongest, lowest profile splitboard clips in the world. They deliver unmatched compression between board halves and they are adjustable so you can maintain even compression as your splitboard ages.

Bolt-Less BridgeThe Bolt-Less Bridge eliminates split clip attachment hardware from the base of the board by re-profiling the wood core at the clips. The wood core under the clips is thicker providing better torsional stiffness and a more powerful connection at the split clips.

Quick Tension TailA built in climbing skin tension system with a pre-cut notch that eliminates the need for a traditional skin tail clip.

Bio ResinAll Jones boards are now built with bio-based, renewable epoxy instead of petroleum based epoxy. The raw materials used to make Super Sap Bio-Resin are co-products or waste products of other plant-based industrial processes. Producing Super Sap requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions than conventional epoxy.

Factory TunedAll Jones snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
