The Jones Frontier Splitboard is the board you'd want to ride every day, just cut in half. Combining floaty directional rocker with a freestyle-inspired tail and a playful flex, this board excels in the variable conditions you expect in the backcountry, but doesn't flounder when the stars align and you find yourself in deep pow. Traction Tech 2.0 edges ensure grip and stability when things are firm, whether arcing turns on the descent or side-hilling up an icy skin track. Float through the soft stuff, harvest the corn and hit every natural feature on the way down; the Jones Frontier Splitboard is the adventure companion you've been waiting for.

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.

Directional Flex Pattern

Flex Rating  6 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Forever Flex  All Jones boards are broken in using specialized machinery that mimics extreme riding use to help stabilize the flex and rocker profile of a board for it's lifetime.

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

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

V-Core  Boards with V-Cores are slightly softer in the very center of the board for improved manouverability and stiffer through the tip and tail for stability and pop.

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

Stainless Steel Reinforcement  Stainless steel plates are embedded into the nose and tail for improved board tip durability.

Recycled ABS  ABS plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. Jones improves the sustainability of their snowboards by using only recycled plastic.

Sintered 8000 Base  New super durable material made from Ultra High Molecular Weight polyethylene and carbon.

Flip Flop Base  Flip-Flop bases improve board sustainability by reducing p-tex waste.

Inside and Outside Traction Tech 2.0  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.

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).

Karakoram Ultra Clips  Ultra clips are the strongest, lowest profile splitboard clips in the world. They deliver unmatched compression between board halves and they are adjustable so you can maintain even compression as your splitboard ages.

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.

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.

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

Quick Tension Tail  A built in climbing skin tension system with a pre-cut notch that eliminates the need for a traditional skin tail clip.
