Product Info

Want to throw the doors of perception wide open? No need to disappear into the desert on a vision quest; just strap into the Jones Mind Expander Snowboard for an afternoon. Blending a directional shape with 3D Contour Base 3.0 and a smooth, full rocker profile designed by legendary surf shaper Chris Christenson, this all-mountain slasher exists at the hallowed intersection of burly freeride, creative freestyle, and good old fashioned pow-surfing. Whatever your style, the Mind Expander will have you looking at the mountain in a whole new light.

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

3D Contour Base 3.0Freeride focused 3D Contour Base featuring a 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose and 0 - 7mm of spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point.

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™ Bamboo Surf CoreRe-designed triple density Bamboo Surf wood core that features primarily paulownia stringers with bamboo stringers positioned in the pocket of the sidecut for better edge response and turn power.

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.

Sustainable Flax / Basalt StringersJones exclusive sustainable stringer made with 100% natural fibers. Composite Flax and Basalt stringer helps transfer power power to the edges, improves torsional response and absorbs board chatter.

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 1.0Like 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.

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

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.

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