The Jones Frontier Split is a top all-round split where you can have fun the entire touring season from pow pow tours in deep winter to slushy spring tours in mid May. We wouldn't consider it just an entry level board.

Riding Style / Field of use


The Frontier is similar to the former Explorer Split. The flex is in the middle range. It is very agile and great fun, even with a weight up to 77 kg.

Test Results


The edges hold well. At high speeds it loses some smoothness compared to the Jones Solution (similar to the Arbor Coda) but it is still good to ride. Even in difficult and variable conditions, it can handle is well. It rides playfully, forgiving and needs little effort. In powder it is surfy and can be ridden well staying centered on the board. All in all, it's a nice all-around board that can be ridden with less power. On the ascent, the Frontier is solid on the skin track, even in hard, less grippy conditions. In powder, like most boards, it floats well. For heavier riders, the soft flex will become noticeable on the ascent.

Description


The Jones Frontier Split is a top all-round split where you can have fun the entire touring season from pow pow tours in deep winter to slushy spring tours in mid May. We wouldn't consider it just an entry level board. We believe the majority of splitboarders would probably have more fun touring on the Frontier Split compared to the Jones Solution. For icy north-facing slopes, steep gullies, or similarly difficult conditions, we would give preference to the Solution. Also advantageous is the availability in a variety of sizes (158, 161, 164 as a wide version).
