Overhauled for 2016, the Jones Explorer Wide Splitboard offers an affordable solution to slaying the backcountry lines of your dreams, all without sacrificing performance or durability. This wide waisted splitboard is ideal for those with feet sized 11 and up, giving big footed riders a proper platform for backcountry domination without toe drag. This extremely versatile board combines freeride shaping with a freestyle specific flex. Its medium flex is softer than Jones' popular freeride boards, such as the Flagship or Solution Splitboard, making it ideal for taking a more playful approach to backcountry riding. Directional in shape, the board's pointy, prominent nose rises early with a substantial dose of rocker to enhance float through deep, untracked snow. Balancing things out, the freestyle shaped tail retains the poppy feel needed to send stylish airs off side hits and cliff drops. Inside this all terrain touring machine, the Classic Core is made of full poplar wood for a consistent flex from tip to tail, with enough durability to withstand regular use and abuse in the backcountry. Biax fiberglass delivers a bit looser torsional flex for effortless edge to edge transitions, as well as a slashy feel when you're surfing through pow. Other notable features include bamboo inner sidewalls, Mellow Magne Traction along the outside edges for locked in grip on hardpack, as well as a speedy fast Sintered 7000 base for incredible glide.
