Product Info

The new Jones Mind Expander Splitboard ushers in a new wave of alternative backcountry shapes, ideal for bouncing through glades, surfing deep powder, and slashing the natural waves of the mountain. Designed by surf shaper Chris Christenson and backcountry legend Jeremy Jones the Mind Expander Split's surfboard-inspired rocker profile combined with its blunted nose allow for epic float in pow and snappy turn potential as you navigate through trees and tighter terrain. Unorthodox in the world of backcountry snowboarding, the Jones Mind Expander Splitboard expands the way in which we think about going up to get down.

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.

Shape

Directional 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

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.

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 Black 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 9900 BaseMade from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and Carbon. This ultra-fast base is easy to repair thanks to the UHMW-PE.

Edges

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

Inside Traction Tech 1.0Inner 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.

Outside 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.

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

Quick Tension TailAll Jones splitboards (except Discovery Split) now feature a notch cut into the tail of both skis that allows the Quick Tension Tail Clip fastener to simply slide into the notch and secure the skin.

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.

Karakoram Ultra ClipsUltra 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.
