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.
