We had been able to test the Jones Splitboard Boot around 15 days of touring in the last season. Yes - as expected it is a good boot, very durable comfortable and the outer size is not so big. So it is less bulky than other boots in this range.
At first they seemed really stiff and the feet had to get used to it. As soon as this happend the boot comes up with lots of qualities and good comfort. What we liked most was the snowcover of the lacing system, this really works and gives a good feeling even at toughest conditions. The boardfeel is not perfect, because of the higher sole, but except of three models in the market it is very common at splitboard boots and regarding that, the boardfeel is really good.
Ascending, the power is well transfered to the board and due to the wide openable back the boot is very comfortable, also great for Apres-Ski-Dancing ;-)
What we didn`t like is that the Boa is just for opening the back of the boots to do longer strides. We think it would have been better to use a Boa to lock the heel perfectly in the boot. But yea we can understand the decision as well, because the traditional lacing just works fine everywhere and in any conditions.
Anyway, as you know it always depends to your personal "footshape".
Here are our personal results from this boot. The durability seems to be increased.
- Comfort: 8
- Power transmission: 8
- Heel support: 8
- Boardfeel: 8
- Weight: 8
- Quality: 8
