Looking to escape the confines of the city for the deep powder and steep lines of your local resort' The Jones Explorer Wide Snowboard is a highly versatile, do anything board that's equally comfortable dropping into steeps and boosting off side hits into deep powder. The Explorer Wide accommodates large footed 11 and bigger riders looking for the extra stability and float of a wider board. For 2016, the Explorer is completely redesigned, now being offered in a solid version for those deep days at your local mountain. Its extremely versatile directional shape features a rounded freestyle tail and pointy, more prominent nose that rises early with a substantial dose of rocker. Ultimately, this provides the pow floating performance of a directional board, but with the snappy fun feel of a freestyle board when you're sending airs off cliffs, side hits, and pillows. Mellower than Jones' other solid boards, such as the Flagship or even the Mountain Twin, the Explorer features a versatile mid flex that's dialed for all terrain supremacy. Its Classic Core is made of full poplar wood for a consistent tip to tail flex, with plenty of snap for boosting airs. Biax fiberglass delivers a looser torsional feel for easy turn initiation, as well as added play for pow wheelies and butters. Substantially increasing edge hold, Mellow Magne Traction edges hold over hardpack and ice, but without being overly grabby in soft snow. Additionally, this board features a high quality Sintered 7000 base for high levels of speed and durability.
