"After spending a season on the Arbor Coda split I came to the conclusion that I needed something a little more responsive and that could hold an edge better in icy/wind blown conditions.
Enter the Jones Explorer Wide.
This board has everything that I loved about my older inbounds Lib Tech Skunk Ape but with magical Backcountry capabilities. Fantastic magna-traction-esque edges keep me holding my own when things get rough and dicey, the width keeps me floating when I need it most, and the metal finishing on the tip and tail ensure that I’m not destroying the board when it gets tossed into the trunk or smashed against a tree/rock on those longer, more grueling, tours.
Overall this is one of the best split boards I’ve ever used second only to the Nitro Doppleganger which rides just a tad more buttery than this Explorer."
