Jones Explorer 15-16

 
 

DESCRIPTION

The Explorer Splitboard has been totally redesigned with a whole new look for 2016. The Explorer’s new shape is perfect for yo-yo’ing backcountry pow laps or a heavy huck session as the floaty, freeride nose is matched with a freestyle tail. Directional Rocker makes it easy to butter or stomp and the mellow Magne Traction provides confident stability riding through tech terrain or unexpectedly rough snow conditions. Though the price is right, the Explorer doesn’t skimp on performance features. The Sintered 7000 base is hyper fast and factory waxed with One Ball Jay BIO wax plus the bamboo inner sidewalls improve manufacturing sustainability. The mountain face on the Explorer’s topsheet is the Shangri-La Wall in Nepal. Jeremy Jones rode the first descent of the Shangri-La Wall filming for HIGHER in 2013. Photo by Andrew Miller.

With the Explorer, Jones Snowboards comes closer to riders who are initiating into splitboarding. But let’s face it, even though we are dealing with a splitboard that could suit anyone, it carries Jones’ signature. We found it very comfortable, both regarding its torsion and flex; it is not too demanding and it provides excellent performance in all types of terrain. The blunt nose translates into excellent float; a good board for riders who are looking to step up their backcountry riding skills.
