Jones Mind Expander 2024 Snowboard

Regular price $999.99 Save $-999.99

The 2024 Jones Mind Expander is a mind-expanding experience that blends freestyle, freeride, and surf style into one beautiful snowboard. Packed to the brim with Jones tech, the Mind Expander is designed to take the seriousness and aggression out of freeriding, while still staying performance focused across a wide variety of terrain. Jones have collaborated with legendary surf shaper Chris Christenson and built the Mind Expander for any creative rider who likes to blend the worlds of freestyle, freeride and surf style snowboarding. New for the 2023 Mind Expander, Jones have created a new Christenson Surf Camber profile giving you camber under foot and rocker in the tip and tail for better edge hold under any condition while the stance was moved forward 2cm for better carving. The unique shape of the Mind Expander isn't just for looks, with the blunted full size tail offering the nimble manoeuvrability of a directional snowboard, with the freestyle ability of a directional twin. Jones recommend you ride the Mind Expander 4-8cm shorter than your traditional directional freeride board.

PROFILE -

Christenson Surf Camber

Taking cues from surfboard shapes, the Christenson Surf Camber profile places rocker in the nose just inside the front inserts and in the tail just at the back inserts while having camber underfoot, keeping the nose up with minimal effort while still providing enough edge hold and stability.

FLEX RATING -

6/10 (1=soft, 10=stiff)

Medium flex boards offer good stability at speed and are easy to turn and manoeuvre.

Directional Flex

This board has a directional flex pattern that allows more movement in the nose with a stiffer tail for extra pop and power under your back foot.

V-Core

Boards with V-Cores are slightly softer in the very centre of the board for improved manoeuvrability and stiffer from the inserts through the tip and tail for stability and pop.

SHAPE -

3D Contour Base 3.0  Freeride focused 3D Contour Base featuring a 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose and 0 - 7mm of spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point.

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

 

CORE -

FSC Bamboo Surf Core

Triple-density full wood Paulownia core featuring hardwood bamboo stringers in the pocket of the sidecut for enhanced edge response and turn power.

Biax Fibreglass

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

Sustainable Flax / Basalt Stringers

New Jones exclusive sustainable stringers made with 100% natural fibres. Composite Flax and Basalt stringers help transfer power to the edges, improve torsional response and absorb board chatter.

SIDEWALLS -

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.

 

BASE -

Sintered 8000

This new super durable base material is made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene and carbon, making it easily repairable, highly wax absorbent, and super fast.

 

EDGES - 

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

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.

 

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). 

 

BINDING COMPATABILITY -

 

2 x 4 Insert Pattern

Carve Pack Inserts  Allows a more centered stance option for riding firm snow.

 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES -

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.
