The new Jones Mind Expander Splitboard 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 and outer edge Traction Tech for enhanced edge grip on icy skintracks or firm descents. For unmatched torsionally board connection in ride mode, the Mind Expander Split also features Jones Boltless Bridge and Karakoram Ultra Clips. New for 2021, the Mind Expander is built with our new ultra fast and durable Sintered 8000 base.

Christenson Surf Rocker Profile: 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.
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.”
Jones splitboards have a notch cut into the tail of both skis that allows the Quick Tension Tail Clip to simply slide into the notch and secure the skin.
Dual-density full premium wood poplar and paulownia core designed to maximize lightness and dampening.
BOLT-LESS BRIDGE Splitboard Connection for the ultimate in solid-feel.
Carbon stringers add torsional stiffness for improved response and increased pop. Carbon layer keeps flex profile dimensionally stable for a consistent ride for the lifetime of the board.
Bases are assorted colors as shown. Flip Flop base graphics drastically reduces p-tex waste.
Karakoram ULTRA clips are lower profile, stronger and increase compression between board halves.
