Ultra Mind Expander

Expand your mind, expand your mountain. The Ultra Mind Expander is a super charged alternative all-mountain board designed for high speed slashing and freeriding.

We stepped up the top speed of the playful Mind Expander by adding camber, premium materials and a stiffer flex to the Ultra Mind Expander. Directional rocker nose + tail, camber underfoot and Traction Tech 3.0 give the Ultra unmatched float and edge hold while the Ash wood veneer topsheet, Basalt Power stringers, Power Core and Triax Carbon Innegra suck up chatter in rough terrain. The Ultra shares the standard Mind Expander’s 3D Contour Base 3.0 and hybrid directional shape. The blunted nose, full size tail and tight sidecut offer the nimble maneuverability of a directional board matched with the freestyle abilities of a directional twin. New for 2021, the Ultra Mind Expander has Carve Pack inserts that offer the option of a more centered stance for ripping hard pack.

Highlights

Ultra Construction

Ultra Construction

The ultimate balance of weight and power. Ultra series models are built with speed boosting, chatter sucking premium materials compared to standard models.

Power Basalt stringers

Power Basalt stringers

Sustainable strength. Basalt stringers are made with 100% natural fibers and help transfer power to the edges, improve torsional response and absorb board chatter.

Triax Fiberglass

Triax Fiberglass

Multi-axis, stitched fiberglass laminate that offers a precise and responsive ride in any terrain or snow conditions.

Sustainably sourced woodcore

Sustainably sourced woodcore

All Jones woodcores are made from wood species that have been sustainably grown and harvested. See the tech features page for more details.

Premium sintered base

Premium sintered base

Life's too short to ride slow bases! All our boards have hyper fast sintered bases made from super durable and wax absorbant premium P-tex. See the tech features for specific base details.

100% 3D Contours Base

100% 3D Contours Base

Welcome to the future. 3D Contour Bases are next-level tech that enhances glide + float and delivers unmatched turn flow and fluidity in any snow condition.

Traction Tech edges

Traction Tech edges

Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Traction Tech improves your edge grip on firm snow.

Sustainably made, built by the sun

Sustainably made, built by the sun

We strive to make gear with the least carbon footprint possible. All boards built with Bio Resin, recycled sidewalls + edges and sustainably sourced woodcores + topsheets. Jones boards are also now built with 100% solar power!

Forever Flex

Forever Flex

Ultimate performance on day one. Forever Flex is a new production process that helps break-in the woodcore and stringers so board flex is even and responsive right out of the wrapper.

Built for SkateTech bindings

Built for SkateTech bindings

Like peanut butter and jelly, the Traction Tech edge bump pattern aligns perfectly with SkateTech bindings for unreal response and edge grip.

Factory tuned, ready to shred

Factory tuned, ready to shred

Buy it, mount it, rip it! All boards leave the factory ready to ride with de-tuned tip + tail, edges angled at 90°/0° and bases waxed with Wend natural wax.

3D Contour Base 3.0

Freeride focused 3D-base contours featuring an even balance of 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose and 7mm of spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point.

About 3D Contour Bases

3D Contour Bases are designed to make every run smoother and every turn more effortless by reducing the drag of the board tips. 3D Contour Bases enhance glide and improve float helping you ride faster and with better flow.

1. Traction Tech 3.0

Traction Tech 3.0 features three bumps per edge (front binding, board center, back binding). The middle bump is slightly bigger than the outside bumps for better grip.

2. Progressive sidecut

At 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.

Directional flex pattern

Off set tip-to-tail flex pattern that is designed for directional freeride boards. The nose, center of board and tail are slightly different stiffnesses to help lift the nose, sink the tail and improve stability at speed.

V-core

Jones exclusive wood core profiling that offers a stable and playful board feel. The wood core is softer between the feet for easy turn initiation and stiffer in the nose and tail for stability riding through uneven terrain and landing airs.

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

Christenson Surf Camber/Rocker

Custom rocker/camber flex pattern designed by surf shaper Chris Christenson. 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 and helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.

Built with the finest tech and materials

100% of our adult models feature high-end materials, construction technologies and sustainable manufacturing process. We accept no compromises in producing the most durable and sustainable snowboarding gear.


Base

Sintered 9900 Base

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

Wend Natural Wax

Multi-axis, stitched fiberglass laminate that offers a precise and responsive ride in any terrain or snow conditions.


Construction

Ultra Construction

Ultra Construction is the redefinition of what it takes to build a snowboard.We’ve tested every inch of the board to precisely position materials exactly where they are needed while eliminating all excess materials. Combining these innovative construction techniques with superlight wood cores and carbon fiber deliver revolutionary results. Jones Ultra boards are the lightest, yet most durable snowboards on earth.
