EXPAND YOUR MIND,

EXPAND YOUR MOUNTAIN

The Mind Expander is an alternative all-mountain board that wants to slash every terrain feature in sight. Surf shaper Chris Christenson and Jeremy Jones designed the Mind Expander for the creative rider who draws lines blending freestyle, freeride and surf styles. For playful float in pow the Mind Expander features a Surf Rocker profile, a 3D Contour Base 3.0 and a hybrid directional shape. The blunted nose, full size tail and tight sidecut offer the nimble maneuverability of a directional board matched with the freestyle abilities of a directional twin.

New for 2020, the Mind Expander features an updated FSC Bamboo Surf Core for better edge response and turn power and Rounded Recycled ABS Sidewalls for improved topsheet durability.

 


PERSONALITY

 


 
CHRISTENSON SURF ROCKER PROFILE
Custom tip/tail rocker profile designed by surf shaper Chris Christenson for the Mind Expander, Mountain Surfer and Storm Chaser. The nose rocker starts just inside of the front inserts and the tail rocker starts just at the back inserts. When you weight the tail of the board the nose ramps up out of the snow for insane float on the deepest days. These subtle rocker contours match a Christenson surfboard rocker profile.
 
 
 
 
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
 
SINTERED 9900
 
Made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight ­Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and Carbon. This ultra-fast base is easy to repair thanks to the UHMW-PE.
 
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.
 
OVERSIZED RECYCLED EDGES
 
All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
 
RECYCLED ROUNDED ABS
 
New rounded sidewall finish that improves board durability by protecting top sheet from chipping. Available on all splitboards and Surf Series models.
 
WEB FUSED CARBON
 
New carbon stringer pack that blends different widths of carbon matched to the specific needs of the board model. Featured on the surf collection models to eliminate nose vibration and on the Solution splitboard as a reinforcement under the binding. Made in the USA, EXCLUSIVE for Jones.
 
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™ BAMBOO SURF CORE
 
Re-designed triple density Bamboo Surf wood core that features primarily paulownia stringers with bamboo stringers positioned in the pocket of the sidecut for better edge response and turn power.
GEAR 101
Not all board shapes are designed to be ridden the same size. The Surf Series models live by their own sizing rules.
Choose the ideal size Surf Series board using your weight and boot size (see the size chart below).

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

FIRST PROTOTYPE
Breaking new ground in board development requires an open mind and a willingness to explore both in the shaping room and on the hill. These two templates are early concepts that eventually led to the Mind Expander.
