Description

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.

The Mind Expander also features a Bamboo Surf Core and Basalt Power Stringers for better edge response and Rounded Recycled ABS Sidewalls for improved topsheet durability.

New for 2021, the Mind Expander has a Sintered 8000 base and Carve Pack inserts that offer the option of a more centered stance for ripping hard pack.

Features
3D Contour Base 3.0

Freeride focused 3D-base contours featuring an even balance of 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose and 7mm of spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts at the rocker point.

Flax/Basalt stringers

Sustainable strength. Jones exclusive Flax / Basalt stringers are made with 100% natural fibers and help transfer power to the edges and absorb board chatter.

Biax Fiberglass

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

Sustainably sourced woodcore

All Jones woodcores are made from wood species that have been sustainably grown and harvested. See the tech features page for more details.

Premium sintered base

Life's too short to ride slow bases! All our boards have hyper fast sintered bases made from super durable and wax absorbant premium P-tex. See the tech features for specific base details.

100% 3D Contours Base

Welcome to the future. 3D Contour Bases are next-level tech that enhances glide + float and delivers unmatched turn flow and fluidity in any snow condition.

Traction Tech edges

Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Traction Tech improves your edge grip on firm snow.

Sustainably made, built by the sun

We strive to make gear with the least carbon footprint possible. All boards built with Bio Resin, recycled sidewalls + edges and sustainably sourced woodcores + topsheets. Jones boards are also now built with 100% solar power!

Built for SkateTech bindings

Like peanut butter and jelly, the Traction Tech edge bump pattern aligns perfectly with SkateTech bindings for unreal response and edge grip. 

Forever Flex

Ultimate performance on day one. Forever Flex is a new production process that helps break-in the woodcore and stringers so board flex is even and responsive right out of the wrapper.

Factory tuned, ready to shred

Buy it, mount it, rip it! All boards leave the factory ready to ride with de-tuned tip + tail, edges angled at 90°/0° and bases waxed with Wend natural wax. 

V-core

Jones exclusive wood core profiling that offers a stable and playful board feel. The wood core is softer between the feet for easy turn initiation and stiffer in the nose and tail for stability riding through uneven terrain and landing airs.

Christenson Surf Rocker

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.

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.

Wend Natural Wax

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

Sintered 8000 Base

New super durable material made from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and carbon. Base is easily repairable, highly wax absorbent and wicked fast.

Biax fiberglass

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

Power Basalt stringers

Sustainable strength. Basalt stringers are made with 100% natural fibers and help transfer power to the edges, improve torsional response and absorb board chatter.

Forever Flex New

Forever Flex is a new manufacturing process that helps stabilise the flex and rocker of a board for its lifetime.

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.

Bio Resin

Bio Resin is a bio-based epoxy made with 27% plant-based carbon instead of petroleum-based carbon. The organicc raw materials used to make bio-resin are co-products or waste products of plant-based industrial processes. Bio-resin requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions to produce than conventional epoxy.

Sustainable Flax/Basalt Stringers

Jones exclusive sustainable stringer made with 100% natural fibers. Composite Flax and Basalt stringers help transfer power to the edges, improves torsional response and absorbs board chatter.

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)

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.
