Jones Mind Expander Splitboard

EXPAND YOUR MIND,

EXPAND YOUR MOUNTAIN

 

The Mind Expander Split was built for the creative rider who weaves nimble and playful lines as they slash through the backcountry. Designed by surf shaper Chris Christenson and Jeremy Jones, the Mind Expander Split features a Christenson Surf Rocker profile and a blunted nose for epic float in pow plus a full size tail for legit freestyle performance. 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 torsionally board connection in ride mode, the Mind Expander Split also features our Boltless Bridge and Karakoram Ultra Clips. New for 2020, we’ve added Rounded Recycled ABS Sidewalls for improved topsheet durability.

 

Features

  • CHRISTENSON SURF ROCKER PROFILECustom 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.

  • TRACTION TECH 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.

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

  • 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.

  • BLUNT NOSE

  • 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.

  • SINTERED 9900 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 Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.

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

  • FACTORY TUNED All Jones Snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.

  • OVERSIZED RECYCLED EDGES All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.

  • KARAKORAM ULTRA CLIP 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.

  • THE BRIDGE TECH The 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 stifness and a more powerful connection at the split clips.

  • RECYCLED ROUNDED ABS New rounded sidewall finish that improves board durability by protecting top sheet from chipping. Available on all splitboards and Surf Series models.

  • ECO PLASTIC TOPSHEET Bio-plastic topsheet made from Castor beans. This eco-material is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant and water/snow repellent (snow sticks less to topsheet)

  • SUPER SAP BIO RESIN All 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.

  • FSC™ CONTROL SPLIT CORE Dual-density full premium wood core designed specifically for split boards 2:1 paulownia to poplar stringer ratio keeps core light yet ultra damp.
