Storm Chaser Splitboard
Packing ridiculous float into a short, stubby swallowtail, the Jones Storm Chaser Splitboard excels at surfing across the deepest powder in low-angle trees, wide open bowls, and mellow backcountry terrain. Based on the surfing premise that shorter shapes can be significantly widened for exemplary float and faster glide, the Storm Chaser Split planes across powder like a much larger board, but without the truck-like turning radius in tight glades.
Designed in collaboration with legendary surf shaper Chris Christenson, the Storm Chaser Split features a Christenson Surf Rocker that maximizes float in snorkel-deep powder, yet still performs admirably when you're carving up springtime corn. This custom-shaped rocker profile features an accentuated nose rocker that starts just inside the front inserts, combined with a subtle tail rocker behind the rear inserts. Factor in the tapered swallowtail shape for a board that naturally sinks the rear end, keeping the big nose skimming across the deep stuff with an almost weightless sensation.
Considering its dramatic rocker profile, it's nice to see Traction Tech on both the inner and outer edges of the board. This subtle edge serration dramatically increases edge hold and side-hilling competency, should you encounter a sketchy snowpack in the backcountry. Bolt-less Bridge construction does away with base bolts while tightening the connection between each half with upgraded Karakoram Ultra Clips. The Quick Tension Tail Clip attaches to Jones' climbing skins (sold separately) for better security without having to use traditional tail clips.
