Details

The Explorer is designed for both pow days or park days as the floaty, freeride nose is matched with a freestyle tail. Directional Rocker makes it easy to butter or stomp and the mellow Magne Traction provides confident stability riding through tech terrain or unexpectedly rough snow conditions. The Explorer has a friendly flex and doesn’t skimp on performance features. The Sintered 7000 base is hyper fast and factory waxed with Wend Natural Wax. The Explorer features an ECO-plastic topsheet made from castor beans for added ECO-performance. New for 2018, the Explorer’s Classic Core has been re-profiled for better torsional response between the feet.

Manufacter Rating:

Stiffness: 06/10

 

Camber/Shape: 

 

Core: 

Classic Core. Full wood premium slovenian poplar core that offers fun pop, even flex and solid durability.

 

Fibers: 

Biax Fiberglass. A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.

 

Top sheet: 

ECO-Plastic Topsheet. Bio-plastic topsheet made from Castor beans. This eco-material is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant and water/snow repellent (snow sticks less to topsheet)

 

Base: 

Sintered 7000 Base. Durable natural base material with added carbon for speed and good wax absorbency.

 

Additional Tech: 

Blunt Nose.

 “How a board glides in powder, crust, corn or any snow more than an inch deep, is dictated by it’s front contact point and just past it. Next time you are in soft snow watch how much snow comes over the corner of the nose near the contact point. The billowing snow coming out from behind the tip means you are plowing through it which is obviously slowing you down. By adding a blunt nose you get the float benefits of a much longer nose without the ‘snow plow’ rounded tip and it’s extra swing weight.” -Jeremy Jones

 

Mellow Magne-Traction. Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Magne-Traction improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board.

“Magne-Traction is a critical feature for rockered boards. Rocker improves glide in mixed conditions, but the decreased edge contact makes it harder to really lock into your turns and hold a solid edge. Magne-Traction is crucial to offset the edge drift of rocker.” -Jeremy Jones

 

Progressive Sidecut. At the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually increasing the sidecut radius towards the contact point delivers smoother turn initiation and exit as the edge tracks in and out of the snow with a less abrupt transition.

 

Oversized Recycled Edges. All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.

 

Recycled ABS. ABS Plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. We improve the sustainability of our snowboards by using only recycled plastic.

 

Wend Natural Wax. Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.

 

Flip Flop Base. By flip flopping the base graphic colors, P-Tex waste is drastically reduced by increasing material yeild.

 

Factory Tuned. All Jones Snowboards are factory de-tuned at the tip and tail so you can go right from the shop to the mountain.
