Product Info

As the world's first splitboard designed for youth and young adult riders, the Jones Discovery Splitboard opens the door for the next generation to start pioneering advanced backcountry terrain. Built with the same features and technologies as the grown-up splitboards, the Discovery utilizes a progressive sidecut for easy turn initiation, a fast and durable sintered base, and Karakoram clips. No longer do the young guns need to remain on the sidelines, with the Jones Discovery Splitboard riders of all sizes can venture into the alluring beauty of the unknown!

Product Details

Rocker Type

Directional RockerA hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and camber between the bindings. The rockered tip floats the board’s nose and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and response. A slightly rockered tail maintains the power and stability of a traditional board but helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.

Flex

5(1 = Soft, 10 = Stiff)

Shape

Directional Shape

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

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.

Core

Classic CoreFull wood premium Slovenian poplar core that offers fun pop, even flex and solid durability.

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

Base

Sintered 7000 BaseDurable natural base material with added ­carbon for speed and good wax absorbency.

Edges

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 ClipsJones Splitboards feature Karakoram K-Clips plus tip and tail hooks. Adjustable tension K-Clips increase board torsional stiffness.

Wend Natural WaxJones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
