JONES Mind Expander Snowboard
Occasionally a board comes along that will broaden your view of how and what to ride. The Jones Mind Expander Snowboard does just that, thanks to a unique surf inspired shape that blends the Hovercraft's agility and freeride prowess with the freestyle ability of the Mountain Twin thanks to the Spoon 3.0 tip and tail. Combined with a custom Christenson Surf Rocker and all new Bamboo Surf core, the Jones Mind Expander Snowboard fuses the arts of turn artistry, pow pillaging and freestyle trickery into one badass board. If you're all about riding creative lines in far flung places, expand your horizons with the Jones Mind Expander Snowboard.
TERRAIN: All-Mountain, Freeride, Powder
ABILITY LEVEL: Intermediate-Advanced
ROCKER TYPE: Christenson Surf Rocker – Custom tip/tail rocker profile designed by surf shaper Chris Christenson. When you weight the tail of the board the nose ramps out of the snow for insane float on the deepest days.
FLEX RATING: 6 – (1 = Soft, 10 = Stiff)
SHAPE: Spoon 3.0 – Freeride focused 3D-base contours featuring an even balance of spoon bevel in the nose and spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point.
Blunt Nose – "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." - Jeremy Jones
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.
BINDING COMPATABILITY: 2x4
CORE: Bamboo Surf Core – New triple density wood core 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, forgiving and snappy ride.
BASE: Sintered 9900 Base – Sintered Ultra High Molecular Weight polyethylene with carbon additives.
Flip Flop Base – By flip flopping the base graphic colors, P-Tex waste is drastically reduced by increasing the material yield.
WARRANTY: 3 Years
