This is the Mind Expander Splitboard Splitboard by Jones.
Alternative backcountry shredder
Ideal for trees, powder and backcountry surf slashing
The Mind Expander Split 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 hybrid directional shape with a blunt nose for epic float in pow, a full size tail for legit freestyle performance, and a short sidecut for snappy turn potential.New for 22/23, the Mind Expander Split now features a Surf Camber profile for better edge hold in variable conditions and the stance was moved forward 20mm for improved carving performance.To keep the playful board feel, the Control Split Core has V-core profiling that gives the board a softer flex between the feet for easy turn initiation and a stiffer flex in the tips so you won’t fold the nose. For enhanced grip on icy skintracks or firm descents the Mind Expander Split has Inner/Outer Traction Tech 1.0 edges, and for unmatched torsional board connection in ride mode, the Mind Expander Split features the Boltless Bridge plus Karakoram Ultra Clips 2.0 and Tip-Lock Tip Clips.

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.

Sintered 8000 Base
New super durable material made from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and carbon. Base is easily repairable, highly wax absorbent and wicked fast.
Wend Natural Wax
Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
Producing two or more base color options minimizes p-tex waste. Order may be filled with either color. Color does not vary by size.
Karakoram Ultra Clips 2.0 with Tip-Lock
Redesigned Karakoram Ultra Clips 2.0 are lighter weight, clamp tighter and have a smaller footprint than the original Ultra Clip. They are also adjustable so you can maintain even compression as your splitboard ages.
Karakoram Tip-Lock tip clips
Every splitboarder knows the feeling - you drop into a firm line and your tip clip pops open! Never again. Using Active Joining Technology, the Karakoram Tip-Lock tip clips quickly lock and clamp the tips of your splitboard with the flick of the lever.
A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.
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.
Stainless steel reinforcement
Stainless steel plates are embedded into the nose and tail for improved board tip durability.
Bio-plastic topsheet made from Castor beans. This eco-material is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant and water/snow repellent (snow sticks less to topsheet).
Control Split Core
Dual-density full premium wood core featuring a 2:1 paulownia to poplar stringer ratio that keeps core light but ultra damp.
