BRINGS THE FREEDOM OF BIG WAVE SURFING TO THE MOUNTAINS

Launched last season to rave reviews, the Mind Expander is Jones's take on the surf-inspired free carving board that is revolutionising snowboarding. Equally at home slashing pow as it is on groomers, this is a board that will transform how you look at snowboarding. Shaped by Jeremy Jones and Chris Christianson, the innovative shape of the Mind Expander has been designed to give unrivalled float in the pow, but also to let you crank those turns on the piste without having to worry about toe and heel drag. The Mind Expander is genuinely a revolutionary snowboard and is leading the charge on changing how we look at snowboarding. Go on, join the revolution, it could just be the best thing you've ever done.

Rider Style
Advanced Intermediate to Expert riders who want a more surf-inspired ride for those deep powder days or for laying out carves on groomers.

Shape Overview
The Mind Expander is the ultimate evolution of the collaboration between Jeremy Jones and surfboard shaper Chris Christianson. Its fully directional shape with extended nose profile and short tail deliver the ultimate in backcountry float. However, it's the addition of the short radius sidecut with Traction Tech 1.0 that bring this board alive, transforming it from powder board to high-speed carver in an instant.

Profile
Chris Christianson's surf rocker combines an extended rocker profile that runs all the way back to the front insert holes. This super long rocker then blends into a flat section which runs back to a short rocker zone at the tail. This unique design gives unrivalled lift at the front by channelling snow down and under the nose. However, the flat section works perfectly with the board's tight sidecut to provide a dynamic feeling under the feet allowing you to power up that short tail through the carve.

3D Contour Base 3.0
The unique Contour 3.0 Spooned base is the most freeride specific of Jones's innovative 3D base profiles. Combining 7mm of spoon in both the nose and tail which begins at the rocker points, Jones manages to deliver a super smooth transition from edge to edge combined with additional lift and float in the nose.

Construction
Internally, Jones doesn't hold back when it comes to construction, ensuring that the Mind Expander lives up to its hype. Heading up its high-end build is the innovative Bamboo Surf Core. This lively wood core combines lightweight Paulownia with Bamboo stringers located parallel to the edges. This state of the art design powers up the sidecut while still delivering a smooth and mellow ride. Now match this with the torsionally softer bi-ax weave glass which is reinforced with the stunning new Carbon Web reinforcing to reduce high-speed chatter, and you have all the ingredients in place to deliver a remarkable ride.

Base
As the Mind Expander is all about speed, Jones fit with a super high end and super-fast Sintered 9900 base. Keep this base waxed with a high-quality wax; it won't be too much of a stretch to say that you're going to be the fastest rider on the mountain.
