Specifically made for smaller riders looking to rip untracked backcountry lines, the Jones Discovery Splitboard is the first splitboard on the market designed exclusively for kids and young adults. Compared to its full sized counterparts, The Discovery Split offers a softer flex that's fine tuned for lightweight riders, as well as skinnier shape for faster edge to edge transitions. Similar in design to the Expedition Split, the Discovery Split specializes in slashing deep powder, banking turns through trees, and popping off natural features. Its Directional shape and prominent, rockered nose deliver the float of a freeride board. However, don't be fooled by its seemingly freeride specific shape. Its medium flex makes it ride more like your favorite freestyle deck, allowing you to butter down the mountain and send stylish airs off every hit in sight. Providing plenty of snap and strength to ride demanding lines, the Classic Core is made of full, tip to tail poplar wood for a consistently smooth flex. Fiberglass reinforcement adds snap to the nose and tail, also preserving the board's flex pattern from substantially softening up. Bamboo inner sidewalls save weight for the long skin up while Mellow Magne Traction outside edges enhance grip on hardpack. Plus, the Extruded 5000 base is easy to repair, just in case you scrape it on some rocks in the early season. And like all of Jones' Splitboards, the Discovery Split uses industry leading Karakoram clips for a rock solid feel underfoot without any slop in the seam.
