Jones Explorer 2018 Snowboard 159cm

The All-Terrain, Shred Everything Board Ideal For Freeride, Freestyle and Backcountry Pow.

The Explorer is designed for both pow days or park days as the floaty, freeride nose is matched with a freestyle tail. Directional Rocker makes it easy to butter or stomp and the Traction Tech provides confident stability riding through tech terrain or unexpectedly rough snow conditions. The Explorer has a friendly flex and doesn’t skimp on performance features. The Sintered 7000 base is hyper fast and factory waxed with Wend Natural Wax. The Explorer features an ECO-plastic topsheet made from castor beans for added ECO-performance. New for 2018, the Explorer’s Classic Core has been re-profiled for better torsional response between the feet.

SPECS

  • TERRAIN: Freeride / All Mountain / Freestyle
  • RIDING LEVEL: Intermedite / Advanced
  • SIZING: 159cm

TECHNOLOGY

Hydro Dynamics

  • 3D Contour Base 1.0: Subtle yet effective 3D-base contours featuring an even balance of spoon bevel in the nose and spoon bevel in the tail. Spoon bevel starts just after the rocker point.

Profile

  • 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.
  • Jeremy says: "My experience is that most falls in freeriding start from the nose of the board – you either go over the bars in powder, the nose gets caught under a weird crust and tosses you, or you hit a hard tranny at the contact point of the tip and get bucked. Directional Rocker eliminates most of these falls".

Shape Tech

  • Traction Tech: 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. “Traction Tech is a critical feature for rockered boards. Rocker improves glide in mixed conditions, but the decreased edge contact makes it harder to really lock into your turns and hold a solid edge. Traction Tech is crucial to offset the edge drift of rocker.” - Jeremy Jones
  • 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
  • Progressive Sidecut: At the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually increasing the side cut 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.
  • Directional Shape 
  • Stiffness 06/10

Other Tech

  • Flip Flop Base: By flip flopping the base graphic colors, P-Tex waste is drastically reduced by increasing the material yield.
  • Sintered 7000 Base: Durable natural base material with added ­carbon for speed and good wax absorbency.
  • Wend Natural Wax: Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
  • Classic Core: Full wood premium slovenian poplar core that offers fun pop, even flex and solid durability.
  • Biax Fiberglass: A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.
  • 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.
  • Recycled ABS Sidewalls: ABS Plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. We improve the sustainability of our snowboards by using only recycled plastic.
  • 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).

Sizing Guides

Sizing Charts

To help you to work out sizings, we have devised the following size guide. It is generic and not specific to any particular brand so especially with clothing it is best to either call for our opinion or cross reference the manufacturers individual size guides. Please click one of the links to get to the relevant chart below:

Ski length, Snowboard length, Snowboard Bindings, Boot sizes, Clothing sizes, Glove sizes.

Ski length

We have devised a simple chart to assist you in selecting your correct ski length. If you require any further assistance, our staff will be only to happy to help.

Weight (stones) 5-6 6-7 7-7.5 7.5-8.5 8.5-9.5 10-10.75 11-11.25 12.5-13.5 13.5+
Weight (kilos) 32-38 38-43 43-47 48-54 57-62 63-69 70-79 80-86 87+
Length (cm's) 125 135 145 155 160 165 170 170 175

Level 1/2 Level 3 Level 4 Level 5/6 Level 7/8 Level 9/10
Skiing for the first time Able to ski green/blue runs Able to ski Blue/Red runs Able to ski all pisted runs in good conditions Able to ski all runs on/off piste in good conditions Able to ski anywhere on the mountain
-15cm -10cm -5cm 0 cm +5cm +10cm

1. Select your weight level.The ski length at the bottom of your weight column is your suggested starting length.

2. Now select your abilty level, the amount in cms at the bottom of your ability level is added to or subtracted from your starting length.

3. Add a further 5cm if you are spending 60% or more of your time off Piste.

4. By adding the above together you will have found your recommended ski length.

By adding your Ski length to your ability you will have found your recommended ski length. For example a person weighing 75kg, who is a level 7 skier will ski on length of 170 + 5cms = 175cms.

This ski length chart is a guide as not all skis end in 5 or 0 cms and therefore suggest you ski closest to the recommended length

Snowboard Length

Snowboard sizing is determined purely by weight. Ability determines flex - beginners should choose a board with a softer more forgiving flex, whilst more advanced riders would normally prefer a stiffer board.

Weight (kg) 32-37 38-43 44-50 51-56 57-63 64-69 70-75 76-82 83-88 89-94 95-101 102+
Weight (stones) 5-6 6-7 7-8 8-9 9-10 10-11 11-12 12-13 13-14 14-15 15-16 16+
Minimum length 125 130 135 140 145 150 155 157 160 162 164 166
Maximum length 135 140 145 150 155 160 162 165 168 170 170 170
