Jones Ultra Mind Expander 2022 Snowboard

Boardworks Breakdown:

A step up from its little brother the mind expander. This one is camber! Surfy style, great tree riding deck, and deep day board! 

Manufacturer Description:

Expand your mind, expand your mountain. The Ultra Mind Expander is a super charged alternative all-mountain board designed for high speed slashing and freeriding.

We stepped up the top speed of the playful Mind Expander by adding camber, premium materials and a stiffer flex to the Ultra Mind Expander. Directional rocker nose + tail, camber underfoot and Traction Tech 3.0 give the Ultra unmatched float and edge hold while the Ash wood veneer topsheet, Basalt Power stringers, Power Core and Triax Carbon Innegra suck up chatter in rough terrain. The Ultra shares the standard Mind Expander’s 3D Contour Base 3.0 and 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. New for 2021, the Ultra Mind Expander has Carve Pack inserts that offer the option of a more centered stance for ripping hard pack.

Technology

 

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. 3D Contour Bases are designed to make every run smoother and every turn more effortless by reducing the drag of the board tips. 3D Contour Bases enhance glide and improve float helping you ride faster and with better flow.

Ultra Construction

Ultra Construction is the redefinition of what it takes to build a snowboard. We've tested every inch of the board to precisely position materials exactly where they are needed while eliminating all excess materials. Combining these innovative construction techniques with superlight wood cores and carbon fiber deliver revolutionary results. Jones Ultra boards are the lightest, yet most durable snowboards on earth. 


Basalt Power Stringers 

Sustainable stringers made with 100% natural fibers. Basalt stringers improve torisonal response and transfer power from under your feet to the tips of the board to help eliminate nose and tail chatter. 



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.



Traction Tech 3.0

Traction Tech 3.0 features three bumps per edge (front binding, board center, back binding). The middle bump is slightly bigger than the outside bumps for better grip.

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 


Directional Flex Pattern

Off set tip-to-tail flex pattern that is designed for directional freeride boards. The nose, center of board and tail are slightly different stiffnesses to help lift the nose, sink the tail and improve stability at speed.


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 Camber/Rocker

Custom rocker/camber flex pattern designed by surf shaper Chris Christenson. 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 and helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.
