The unique shape is matched with a short sidecut for snappy turn potential in tight trees and Inner/Outer Traction Tech 1.0 edges for enhanced grip on icy skintracks or firm descents. For unmatched torsional board connection in ride mode, the Mind Expander Split also features the Boltless Bridge plus Karakoram Ultra Clips and Tip-Lock Tip Clips.

Highlights

Karakoram Tip-Lock tip clips

Karakoram Tip-Lock tip clips

Every splitboarder knows the feeling - you drop into a firm line and your tip clip pops open! Never again. Using Active Joining Technology, the Karakoram Tip-Lock tip clips quickly lock and clamp the tips of your splitboard with the flick of the lever.

Boltless Bridge

Boltless Bridge

Less hardware, more power. The Bolt-less Bridge eliminates split clip hardware from the base of the board and enhances split connection by re-profiling the woodcore under the clips.

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.

Karakoram Ultra clips

Karakoram Ultra clips

Ultra 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.

Inner/Outer Traction Tech edges

Inner/Outer Traction Tech edges

Lock in up and down. Traction Tech on inside and outside split edges improves grip on icy skintracks or firm descents.

Biax Fiberglass

Biax Fiberglass

A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.

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.

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.

Forever Flex

Forever Flex

Forever Flex is a new manufacturing process that helps stabilise the flex and rocker of a board for its lifetime.

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!

1. Inside & outside Traction Tech 2.0

Like 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.

Inner edge Traction Tech

Inner edge Traction Tech improves splitboard edge grip on ascent. Three sidecut bumps on each side of your binding keep your locked in on icy skin tracks no matter which way you are traversing.

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.

3. Quick Tension Tail Clip

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

4. Boltless Bridge

The Boltless 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.

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 Rocker

Custom 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.

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 8000 Base

New super durable material made from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and carbon. Base is easily repairable, highly wax absorbent and wicked fast.

Wend Natural Wax

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

Flip-Flop Base

Producing two or more base color options minimizes p-tex waste. Order may be filled with either color. Color does not vary by size.


Extra hardware

Karakoram Ultra Clips 2.0 with Tip-Lock

Redesigned Karakoram Ultra Clips 2.0 are lighter weight, clamp tighter and have a smaller footprint than the original Ultra Clip. They are also adjustable so you can maintain even compression as your splitboard ages.

Karakoram Tip-Lock tip clips

Every splitboarder knows the feeling - you drop into a firm line and your tip clip pops open! Never again. Using Active Joining Technology, the Karakoram Tip-Lock tip clips quickly lock and clamp the tips of your splitboard with the flick of the lever.
