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 8000 base, an Eco-plastic topsheet and a Classic V-Core that is specially profiled for added pop between the feet. The Frontier Split is also equipped with Karakoram Ultra Clips 2.0, and new for 22/23, the Boltless Bridge that eliminates hardware in the base.
Shape + Flex
Inside & outside Traction Tech 2.0 : 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.
Inner edge Traction Tech : Inner edge Traction Tech improves splitboard edge grip on ascent. Three sidecut bumps on each side of your binding keep your locked in on icy skin tracks no matter which way you are traversing.
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.
Quick Tension Tail Clip : Built-in climbing skin tension system using pre-cut notch that eliminates the need for a traditional skin tail clip.
Boltless Bridge : The Boltless Bridge eliminates split clip attachment hardware from the base of the board by re-profiling the wood core at the clips. The wood core under the clips is thicker, providing better torsional stiffness and a more powerful connection at the split clips.
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.
Construction + Core
Karakoram Ultra Clips : Ultra clips are the strongest, lowest profile splitboard clips in the world. They deliver unmatched compression between board halves and they are adjustable so you can maintain even compression as your splitboard ages.
Biax fiberglass : A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate that provides a fun, forgiving and snappy ride.
Bio Resin : Bio Resin is a bio-based epoxy made with 27% plant-based carbon instead of petroleum-based carbon. The organic raw materials used to make bio-resin are co-products or waste products of plant-based industrial processes. Bio-resin requires 33% less greenhouse gas emissions to produce than conventional epoxy.
Oversized recycled edges : All Jones boards are made with oversized recycled steel edges for added durability and improved production sustainability.
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.
Forever Flex : Forever Flex is a new manufacturing process that helps stabilise the flex and rocker of a board for its lifetime.
Recycled rounded ABS : Rounded sidewall finish that improves board durability by protecting topsheet from chipping.
Stainless steel reinforcement : Stainless steel plates are embedded into the nose and tail for improved board tip durability.
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).
Classic Core : Full wood premium poplar core than offers fun pop, even flex and solid durability.
Base + Edges
Sintered 8000 Base : New super durable material made from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) and carbon. Base is easily repairable, highly wax absorbent and wicked fast.
Wend Natural Wax : Jones boards are ready to shred straight out of the shop and are factory waxed with WEND natural wax.
Flip-Flop Base : Producing two or more base color options minimizes p-tex waste. Order may be filled with either color. Color does not vary by size.
