Overview
Shaped by Chris Christenson, the Mind Expander has a unique flat with rocker profile to create a fast gliding, powder-oriented shred-stick ready to surf pow like a surfboard and become one with winter. Brand new for 2018, the Mind Expander features a triple density Bamboo Surf wood core that has bamboo stringers positioned in the pocket of the sidecut for better edge response and turn power. Pressing hard into the tail of the set back design sends the Blunt Nose to the sky creating insane float on deep days. The Mind Expander is built with more environmentally conscience materials like Recycled ABS sidewalls, an Eco-Plastic Topsheet and Recycled Steel Edges to reduce the impact on the environment. Expand your mind this season by adding this wicked new freerider to your quiver.

Key Features

Christenson Surf Rocker - Custom tip/tail rocker profile designed by surf shaper Chris Christenson for the 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.

“Traction Tech 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. Traction Tech is crucial to offset the edge drift of rocker.” - Jeremy Jones

Core

Bamboo Surf Core - Triple density Bamboo Surf wood core that has bamboo stringers positioned in the pocket of the sidecut for better edge response and turn power.

Laminates

Biax Fiberglass - A dual-direction, dual layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun and forgiving ride due to its tensile strength, reliability and snappy response.

Base

Sintered 9900 Base - Made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and Carbon. This ultra-fast base is easy to repair and fast.

Details

Progressive Sidecut - Delivers smoother turn initiation and exit as the edge tracks in and out of the snow with a less abrupt transition.

Blunt Nose = Float - How a board glides in powder, crust, corn or any snow condition more than an inch deep is dictated by its 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 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 board tip without the added length or swing weight.

Eco-Plastic Topsheet - Bio plastic topsheet made from Castor beans. This eco-material is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant and water/snow repellent, which means less obnoxious snow to kick off.

Flip Flop Base Graphics - By flip-flopping the base graphic colors, P-Tex waste is drastically reduced by increasing the material yield.

Recycled ABS - ABS plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. Jones improves the sustainability of their snowboards by only using recycled plastic.

1% For The Planet - Jones Snowboards has committed to contribute at least one percent of their annual sales to environmental causes. The mission of 1% for the Planet is to "build, support and activate an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet."

Oversize Recycled Steel Edges - All Jones boards are made with oversize recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.

Supports "Protect Our Winters" - Protect Our Winters (POW) was started in 2007 by pro snowboarder Jeremy Jones, owner of Jones Snowboards, who witnessed first-hand the impact of climate change on North America's mountains.

After being turned away from areas that had once been ride-able and seeing resorts closed due to lack of snow, Jones decided to take action by founding POW, whose mission is to engage and mobilize winter sports communities to educate others about the growing problem of climate change and its negative effects on the environment.
