PRODUCT INFORMATION

Profile: Directional Rocker

Terrain: Pow

Response: Medium


The Mind Expander Split was built for the creative rider who weaves nimble and playful lines as they slash through the backcountry. Designed by surf shaper Chris Christenson and Jeremy Jones, the Mind Expander Split features a Christenson Surf Rocker profile and blunt nose for epic float in pow, plus a full size tail for legit freestyle performance. The unique shape is matched with a short sidecut for snappy turn potential in tight trees and Inner/Outer Traction Tech 1.0 edges for enhanced grip on icy skintracks or firm descents. For unmatched torsional board connection in ride mode, the Mind Expander Split also features the Boltless Bridge plus Karakoram Ultra Clips and Tip-Lock Tip Clips. New for 21/22, the Mind Expander Split is now equipped with the smaller and lighter Karakoram Ultra Clips 2.0.


Features:

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.

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

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.

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 is thicker under the clips, providing better torsional stiffness and a more powerful connection at the split clips.

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.

ECO-Plastic Topsheet: Bio-plastic topsheet made from castor beans. An eco material that is ultralight, chip/scratch resistant, and water/snow repellant meaning snow sticks less to your topsheet!

Control Split Core: Full premium dual density wood core featuring a paulownia to poplar 2:1 stringer ratio keeping the core light, but ultra damp. Designed specifically for splitboards.

Sintered 8000 Base: Super durable material made from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMw-PE) and carbon. This makes it easily repairable, highly wax absorbent, so it's wicked fast.

Biax Fiberglass: A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate providing a fun, forgiving, snappy ride.

Oversized Recycled Edges: Added durability and improved production sustainability.

Recycled Rounded ABS: Rounded sidewall finish that improves board durability by protecting topsheet from chipping.

Bio Resin: A bio-based epoxy made with 27% plant-based carbon instead of petroleum-based carbon. The organic materials used to make it are waste products of plant-based industrial processes. They require 33% less greenhouse gas emissions to produce than conventional epoxy.

Wend Natural Wax: Factory waxed with natural wax.

Forever Flex: Helps with stabilizing the flex and rocker of a board for its lifetime.

Flip Flop Base: Two base colour options to minimize p-tex waste. Order may be filled with either colour.

Stainless Steel Reinforcement

Karakoram Ultra Clips 2.0 with Tip Lock: The strongest, lowest profile splitboard clips in the world. Delivering unmatched compression between board halves. They are also adjustable so you can maintain even compression as your splitboard ages.


Profile:

Surf Rocker

A custom tip/tail rocker profile designed by the surf shaper himself, Chirs Christenson. The nose rocker begins just inside the front inserts and the tail rocker starts just at the back inserts. When you sit back/add weight on the tail of the board, the nose ramps up and lifts out of the snow for insane float on the deepest days.


Shape:

Directional

A smooth, reliable ride.

Directional shapes generally feature a longer, softer nose and a shorter, stiffer tail. These shapes thrive in an all-mountain environment, as they possess the ability to ride more smoothly than their twin-tip counterparts and behave more reliably in variable snow conditions, anywhere from choppy snow to deeper powder. More twin-looking directional shapes where the difference between nose and tail appear minimal will perform best as crossover freestyle snowboards for those looking to still access the park, while more exaggerated differences will excel for additional float in deep powder.


Flex:

6 (Scale 1-10)

Ideal for trees, powder and backcountry surf slashing.


Base:

Sintered

High-end base material that is harder, more durable, and faster than extruded bases.
