Jones Snowboards Explorer Split
The Explorer Splitboard is perfect for yo-yo`ing backcountry pow laps or a heavy huck session as the floaty, freeride nose is matched with a freestyle tail. Directional Rocker makes it easy to butter or stomp and the mellow Magne Traction provides confident stability riding through tech terrain or unexpectedly rough snow conditions. On the skin track back up, the inner edge Magne traction adds serious grip. Though the price is right, the Explorer Split doesn`t skimp on performance features. The Sintered 7000 base is hyper fast and factory waxed with Wend Natural Wax. New for 2017, the Explorer Split features an an ECO-plastic topsheet made from castor beans for added ECO-performance.
A 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.
Like 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.
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.
At the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually increasing the side cut 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.
Quick Tension Tail Clip
Built-in climbing skin tension system using pre-cut notch that eliminates the need for a traditional skin tail clip.
Flip Flop Base
By flip flopping the base graphic colors, P-Tex waste is drastically reduced by increasing the material yield.
Durable natural base material with added carbon for speed and good wax absorbency.
Wend Natural Wax
Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
Full wood premium slovenian poplar core that offers fun pop, even flex and solid durability.
A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.
All Jones Snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
Recycled ABS Sidewalls
ABS Plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. We improve the sustainability of our snowboards by using only recycled plastic.
Overzided Recycled Edges
All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
Karakoram STD. Clip
Jones Splitboards feature Karakoram K-clips plus tip and tail hooks. Adjustable tension K-clips increase board torsional stiffness.
Stainless Steel Hardware
Stainless steel plates are embedded into the nose and tail for improved board tip durability.
Film Top Sheet
Film topsheets provide the stiffness and impact resistance of a normal topsheet while significantly reducing weight by decreasing the thickness of the topsheet material.
Quick Tension Tail Clip
The Quick Tension Tail Clip is designed for 2016-17 Jones Splitboards except the Discovery Split. All 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.
