The 2019 Jones Explorer is made for riders who want a floaty freeride board that rides as well in the park as it does in deep snow. The rocker nose and tail and 3D spoon shape gives the board great float in powder, while the positive camber underfoot gives you a solid and stable platform for hard and fast riding, and the friendly flex keeps it nice and playful for park riding and all-terrain freestyle fun. Explorer by name, explorer by nature, this board is comfortable in any kind of terrain.
Camber Type: Directional Rocker
A hybrid flex pattern which places camber underfoot and rocker in the tips, then moves it back towards the tail putting the power under your back foot. The longer rocker in the nose keeps it floating and improves manoeuvrability, while the camber underfoot enhances stability, edge hold, and response.
Flex: 6/10 (1=soft, 10=stiff)
A mid flex that is stable at speed and responsive when you need it, but still soft enough to play around all over the mountain.
This board has a setback stance and directional flex pattern, so ride it forwards for optimum performance.
Core: Classic Core
Full wood premium poplar core that offers great pop, even flex, and reliable durability.
Base: Sintered 7000
A fast and strong base with added carbon for extra speed and good wax absorbency.
Spoon 1.0 - A subtle 3D base contour featuring an even balance of 2mm of bevel in the nose and tail. Spoon makes the base roll through turns instead of landing flat, making your turns smoother and more natural.
Oversized Recycled Edges - Exactly what it sounds like, enhanced sustainability and added durability.
Eco-Plastic Topsheet - An ultralight chip/scratch resistant topsheet made from castor beans. Good for your board, good for the environment.
