Product Info

Looking for a split that breaks the mold from pure directional shapes? The Jones Explorer Splitboard does just that by bridging the gap between freestyle performance and freeride balance with a sneaky combination of twin shaping, a directional rocker profile and a slightly setback stance. This hybrid shape features a Classic Core with plenty of pop and a more forgiving flex so you can take full advantage of natural hits and windlips on your ride down!

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

6(1 = Soft, 10 = Stiff)

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

Recycled ABS SidewallsABS plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. We improve the sustainability of our snowboards by using only recycled plastic.

Base

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

Flip Flop BaseBy flip flopping the base graphic colors, P-Tex waste is drastically reduced by increasing the material yield.

Edges

Inner and Outer Mellow Magne-TractionLike a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Magne-Traction improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board. "Magne-Traction is a critical feature for rockered boards. Rocker improves glide in mixed conditions, but the decreased edge contact makes it harder to really lock into your turns and hold a solid edge. Magne-Traction is crucial to offset the edge drift of rocker." - Jeremy Jones

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

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

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

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