THE ALL-TERRAIN, SHRED EVERYTHING SPLIT
Previously named the Explorer, the Frontier Split is the ultimate splitboard for playful riders looking for a directional freeride shape without a stiff flex.
The Frontier features a floaty, freeride nose for pow crushing and crud busting matched with a freestyle tail that’s perfect for popping pillows and stomping cliff drops. On icy skin tracks or firm descents, the Directional Rocker profile and Inner/Outer Traction Tech 2.0 edges provide confident stability and edge grip. The Frontier Split offers high performance without skimping on materials as it’s built with a Sintered 7000 base, an Eco-plastic topsheet and a new FSC Classic Core that is specially profiled for added pop. New for 2020, the Frontier Split has Rounded Recycled ABS Sidewalls for improved topsheet durability.

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.
FSC™ Classic Split Core - Full wood premium poplar core that offers fun pop, even flex and solid durability.
Sintered 7000 Base - Durable natural base material with added carbon for speed and good wax absorbency.
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)
Karakoram STD Clips - Jones Splitboards feature premium Karakoram K-clips plus tip and tail hooks. Adjustable tension K-clips increase board torsional stiffness and offer a superior connection to simple interlocking clips.
Stainless Steel Reinforcement - Stainless steel plates are embedded into the nose and tail for improved board tip durability.
Biax Fiberglass - A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.
Oversized Recycled Edges - All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
Recycled Rounded ABS - New rounded sidewall finish that improves board durability by protecting top sheet from chipping. Available on all splitboards and Surf Series models.
Wend Natural Wax - Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
Super Sap Bio Resin - All Jones boards are now built with bio-based, renewable epoxy instead of petroleum based epoxy. The raw materials used to make Super Sap Bio-Resin are co-products or waste products of other plant-based industrial processes. Producing Super Sap requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions than conventional epoxy.
Flip-Flop Base - By flip flopping the base graphic colors, P-Tex waste is drastically reduced by increasing the material yield.
