Previously named the Explorer, the Frontier is a directional freeride board designed to be the perfect daily driver for the playful all-mountain shredder.

Featuring a floaty, freeride nose matched with a freestyle tail, the Frontier is ideal for pow days, park days and every day in between. The Frontier’s Directional shape, Directional Rocker profile and Traction Tech 2.0 edges provide confident stability riding through tech terrain or rough snow while the spooned nose+tail edges on the 3D Contour Base 1.0 reduce edge catch and make it easy to turn in tight terrain. The Frontier offers high performance without skimping on materials as it’s built with a Sintered 7000 base, an Eco-plastic topsheet and a new FSC Classic Core that is specially profiled between the feet for added pop.

 


PERSONALITY

 


 
 
DIRECTIONAL ROCKER

A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and camber between the bindings. The rockered tip floats the board’s nose and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and response. A slightly rockered tail maintains the power and stability of a traditional board but helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.

My experience is that most falls in freeriding start from the nose of the board – you either go over the bars in powder, the nose gets caught under a weird crust and tosses you, or you hit a hard tranny at the contact point of the tip and get bucked. Directional Rocker eliminates most of these falls. — Jeremy Jones

 
 
 
 
TRACTION TECH
 

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

Traction Tech 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. Traction Tech 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.
 
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
 
FLIP FLOP BASE
 
Producing two or more base color options minimizes p-tex waste. Order may be filled with either color. Color does not vary by size.
 
SINTERED 7000
 
Durable natural base material with added carbon for speed and good wax absorbency.
 
WEND NATURAL WAX
 
Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
 
BIAX FIBERGLASS
 
A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.
 
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.
 
RECYCLED ABS SIDEWALLS
 
ABS Plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. We improve the sustainability of our snowboards by using only recycled plastic.
 
OVERSIZED RECYCLED EDGES
 
All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
 
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)
 
SUPER SAP BIO RESIN
 
All Jones boards are now built with bio-based, renewable epoxy instead of petroleum based epoxy. The raw materials used to make Super Sap Bio-Resin are co-products or waste products of other plant-based industrial processes. Producing Super Sap requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions than conventional epoxy.
 
FSC™ CLASSIC CORE
 
Full wood premium poplar core that offers fun pop, even flex and solid durability.
GEAR 101
Not all board shapes are designed to be ridden the same size. Directional Freeride boards are the longest board you will ride.
Choose the ideal size Directional Freeride board using your weight and boot size (see the size chart below).

3D CONTOUR BASE 1.0
Subtle yet effective 3D-base contours featuring an even balance of 2mm spoon bevel in the nose and 2mm spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts just after the rocker point.
 
 
 

 

NEXT LEVEL TECHNOLOGY FOR ULTIMATE RESPONSE
GLIDE. FLOW. FLOAT.
3D Contour Bases are designed to make every run smoother and every turn more effortless by reducing the drag of the board tips. 3D Contour Bases enhance glide and improve float helping you ride faster and with better flow.

I’ve been on a quest to design a snowboard that offers the friction free glide and edge-to-edge fluidity of a surfboard for years. 3D Contour bases finally cracked the code on how to achieve this next level of board performance. Jeremy Jones
