2018 Jones Explorer - Men's Snowboard


The Jones Explorer Snowboard bridges the gap between freestyle performance and freeride balance with a sneaky combination of twin shaping, a directional rocker profile and a setback stance. Slightly beveled edges at the tip and tail from Spoon 1.0 shaping combine with this hybrid shape for a catch-free ride that performs admirably in soft snow too. The re-worked Classic Core has plenty of pop and the more forgiving flex is a blast in the terrain park. Have your cake and eat it too with the versatile Jones Explorer Snowboard.


FEATURES

ROCKER TYPE:
Directional Rocker – A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and camber between the bindings. 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 but helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.


FLEX:
6 – (1 = Soft, 10 = Stiff)


SHAPE:
Spoon 1.0 – Subtle yet effective 3D-base contours featuring an even balance of spoon bevel in the nose and spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts just after 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.


CORE:
Classic Core – Full wood premium Slovenian poplar core that offers fun pop, even flex and solid durability.

Re-Profiled Classic Core – Better torsional response between the feet.


LAMINATES:
Biax Fiberglass – A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.


SIDEWALLS:
Recycled ABS Sidewalls – ABS plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. Jones improves the sustainability of their snowboards by using only recycled plastic.


BASE:
Sintered 7000 Base – Durable natural base material with added ­carbon for speed and good wax absorbency.

Flip Flop Base – By flip flopping the base graphic colors, P-Tex waste is drastically reduced by increasing the material yield.


EDGES:
Mellow Magne-Traction™ – Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Magne-Traction improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board. "Magne-Traction 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. Magne-Traction is crucial to offset the edge drift of rocker." - Jeremy Jones

Oversized Recycled Edges – All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.


TOPSHEET:
Eco-Plastic Topsheet – Bio-plastic topsheet made from Castor beans. This eco-material is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant and water/snow repellent (snow sticks less to topsheet).


ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wend Natural Wax – Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.

Factory Tuned – All Jones snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.

BINDING COMPATIBILITY: 2 x 4 Insert Pattern
