Jones Snowboards 2017 Explorer and Explorer Split
Boom, Jones seem like they want to keep the title of the best board manufacturer for another year. Releasing their new Explorer as the ultimate all-terrain board, it will take on all terrains and deliver ridiculous performance. Add to it gorgeous graphics (we’re used to that with Jones) and you get a future best-seller for sure.
What can the Jones Explorer snowboard do?
It is a freeride-oriented all-mountain board featuring a premium construction and superior finish. The Explorer is one of the best quality/performance/price ratio you can find in Jones catalogue. Mainly designed for thrashing powder all day long, you’ll appreciate the generous rocker in the nose and the freestyle tail shape. This combination delivers optimal floatation on the deep and an optimal conduct for those who like to turn the backcountry into a giant snowpark. The board is responsive, agile and delivers a great feel on all terrains. On hard snow, the board grips hard thanks to the Magne Traction technology which turns the board’s edges into a bread’s knife! The cambered profile keeps the board responsive with tons of rebound and pop. You can very well use it in the park if you like. So if you look for the ultimate combination of powder/piste and park performance in one gorgeous board, needless to look further...
Who is the Jones Explorer snowboard designed for?
We recommend the Jones Explorer to all advanced and expert riders who want to spice up their riding performance. It’s an excellent powder board that floats naturally and manoeuvers effortlessly without compromising performance on hard snow. On top of it, its shape offers a nice playful feel which BC freestylers will love.

Snowboard detailed program
Weaved biaxial fiberglass are positioned at 0°/90° for more torsional flex. Great performance at carving or park.
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. The Flagship, Mountain Twin, and the Solution all feature a refined Magne-Traction design where the bumps are biggest between your bindings for maximum edge control and smaller outside your feet allowing you to feather your turns without catching an edge. Jeremy's Words: Why trust your life to an edge with only two contact points when Magne-Traction gives you the grip of seven points of contact! I have gotten to the bottom of countless steep, icy faces and thanked my Magne-Traction for giving me the edge control to hold on. Magne-Traction is also a key ingredient for rockered board designs. Adding rocker to your board makes it glide more smoothly, but it makes it harder to really lock into your turns and hold a solid edge. Though Magne-Traction on full-camber boards tends to feel too locked in, once I started testing different rocker designs it was clear that Magne-Traction was crucial to offset the drift typical of rocker flex patterns.
Full-wood core that offers fun pop, even flex and solid durability.
Rubber edge dampening material is made with 100% recycled material.
Classic shape for a versatile use. The nose is slightly longer than the tail.
At the far ends of the side cut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually decreassing the side cut 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.
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.
A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker than tail rocker and slight camber between the bindings. The rockered tip gives the nose added float and improves manoeuvrability while the camber underfoot gives you added edge hold and response. A slightly rockered tail maintains the power and stablity of a traditional board, but helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.
