This is the Ultra Mind Expander Snowboard by Jones.
Alternative all-mountain charger
Ideal for creative freeriding and freestyle
The Ultra Mind Expander is a super charged alternative all-mountain board designed for high speed slashing and freeriding.
We stepped up the top speed of the playful Mind Expander by adding premium materials and a stiffer flex to the Ultra Mind Expander. The Surf Camber profile and Traction Tech 3.0 give the Ultra unmatched float and edge hold while the Ash wood veneer topsheet, Basalt Power stringers, Power Core and Triax Carbon Innegra suck up chatter in rough terrain. The Ultra shares the standard Mind Expander’s 3D Contour Base 3.0 and hybrid directional shape. The blunted nose, full size tail and tight sidecut offer the nimble maneuverability of a directional board matched with the freestyle abilities of a directional twin. For added speed and stance options, the Ultra Mind Expander has a smoking fast Sintered 9900 base, andnew for 22/23, we moved the stance inserts up 20mm to allow a more centered stance and improve carving performance.

3D Contour Base 3.0
Freeride focused 3D-base contours featuring an even balance of 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose and 7mm of spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point.
1.Traction Tech 3.0
Traction Tech 3.0 features three bumps per edge (front binding, board center, back binding). The middle bump is slightly bigger than the outside bumps for better grip.
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.
Directional flex pattern
Christenson Surf Camber/Rocker
Custom rocker/camber flex pattern designed by surf shaper Chris Christenson. 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 and helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.
Built with the finest tech and materials
100% of our adult models feature high-end materials, construction technologies and sustainable manufacturing process. We accept no compromises in producing the most durable and sustainable snowboarding gear.
Wend Natural Wax
Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
Sintered 9900 Base
Made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and Carbon. This ultra-fast base is easy to repair thanks to the UHMW-PE.
Ultra Construction is the redefinition of what it takes to build a snowboard.We’ve tested every inch of the board to precisely position materials exactly where they are needed while eliminating all excess materials. Combining these innovative construction techniques with superlight wood cores and carbon fiber deliver revolutionary results. Jones Ultra boards are the lightest, yet most durable snowboards on earth.
Multi-axis, stitched fiberglass laminate that offers a precise and responsive ride in any terrain or snow conditions.
Allows more centered stance option for riding firm snow.
Bio Resin is a bio-based epoxy made with 27% plant-based carbon instead of petroleum-based carbon. The organic raw materials used to make bio-resin are co-products or waste products of plant-based industrial processes. Bio-resin requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions to produce than conventional epoxy.
Oversized recycled edges
All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
All Jones Snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
Forever Flex is a new manufacturing process that helps stabilise the flex and rocker of a board for its lifetime.
Recycled rounded ABS
Rounded sidewall finish that improves board durability by protecting topsheet from chipping.
Basalt Power stringers
Sustainable strength. Basalt stringers are made with 100% natural fibers and help transfer power to the edges, improve torsional response and absorb board chatter.
Ash wood veneer
This ash wood veneer top layer delivers added responsiveness and is the most natural way to find the best balance between absorption and pop.
Triple-density full wood core featuring hardwood bamboo stringers for added pop and durability plus paulownia for weight savings.
