With a core designed specifically for splitboards and a progressive sidecut, the Mind Expander is extremely responsive while still maintaining a surfy feel thanks to the Christenson Surf Rocker profile shape. The bolt-less bridge works to clip your board together without hardware on the base while still offering stiffness/support in the right places. For this year, they upgraded the sidewalls to make the topsheet more damage resistant. This is great for any experienced rider itching to head into the backcountry.

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 2.0 - Traction Tech 2.0 utilizes two bumps per edge (front binding, back binding) for improved edge control and enhanced grip in all conditions.
FSC™ Control Split Core - Dual-density full premium wood core designed specifically for splitboards 2:1 paulownia to poplar stringer ratio keeps core light yet ultra damp.
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.
V-Core Construction - The V-Core Construction has a slightly softer flex in the center of the board for improved maneuverability and a stiffer flex from the inserts through the tip and tail for stability and pop.
Sintered 9900 Base - Made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and Carbon. This ultra-fast base is easy to repair and extremely quick on snow.
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 - Provides the loft, or float, benefits of a much longer nose without the "snow plow" rounded tip and its extra swing weight.
Stainless Steel Reinforcement - Stainless steel plates are embedded into the nose and tail for improved board tip durability.
Bolt-Less Bridge - This 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.
Quick Tension Tail Clip - All Jones splitboards 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.
Karakoram Ultra Clip - Karakoram Ultra clips are lower profile, stronger and increase compression between board halves.
Inner Edge Traction Tech - Improves splitboard edge and grip on the ascent. Three side cut "bumps" on each side of your binding keep you locked in on icy skin tracks no matter which way you are traversing.
Eco-Plastic Topsheet - Bio-plastic top sheet made from Castor beans features a subtle texture for increased durability. This eco-material is lightweight and chip/scratch resistant.
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.
Oversize Recycled Steel Edges - All Jones boards are made with oversize recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
FSC™ Sustainable Wood Core - All Jones wood cores are made with Forest Stewardship Council (FSC™) certified wood. Every piece of wood used comes from a responsibly managed forest.
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."
Supports "Protect Our Winters" - Protect Our Winters (POW) was started in 2007 by THE Jeremy Jones. It serves to educate about the importance of environmental protection to ensure a prosperous future for the outdoor recreation economy.
