Completely redesigned for 2016, the Jones Explorer Splitboard represents an affordable solution to pursuing your dream lines, without skimping on performance or durability. Extremely versatile, the Explorer Splitboard features a directional shape, with a snappy freestyle tail and pointy, prominent nose that rises early with a substantial dose of rocker. Ultimately, this provides the pow floating performance of a directional board, without sacrificing its ability to send huge airs or spin off cliffs and natural drops. A bit softer than Jones' other freeride specific boards, such as the Flagship or Solution Splitboard, the Explorer features a versatile medium flex that's dialed for all terrain riding. Its Classic Core is made of full poplar wood for a consistently tuned flex, with plenty of snap for boosting airs. Biax fiberglass delivers a bit looser torsional flex for effortless edge to edge transitions, as well as a slashy feel when you're riding powder. Bamboo inside sidewalls improve the board's smooth flexing characteristics, also replacing ABS plastic for improved sustainability. Mellow Magne Traction edges lock in solid edgehold, especially in icy, hardpacked conditions. Moreover, the Sintered 7000 base is incredibly fast and durable, resisting damage from variable backcountry conditions.
