Gone are the days of all splitboards being grumpy, directional tapered tanks—the Jones Mountain Twin Splitboard was designed for riders who want to access the most remote backcountry zones, but who still need the huckable shape of a modern, poppy freestyle twin to get rad on the ride back down. Air into pillows, half-cab off cliffs, and huck off huge windlips knowing the Mountain Twin's CamRock profile offers predictable, floaty takeoffs and landings both regular and switch.
Camber between the feet keeps the Mountain Twin planted at speed, and there's slightly more rocker in the nose than the tail for stability at mach speeds without sacrificing handling when you're riding switch. Mellow Magne-Traction places bumps along the edge, for secure edgehold. The blunted nose keeps swing weight down for extra response and faster spins. Triax fiberglass works in conjunction with carbon stringers that radiate out from the bindings to the tip and tail for a super responsive ride.
Karakoram hardware firmly holds the board halves together to reduce slop in the seam, and, when used in conjunction with Karakoram bindings, create a connection that will make you forget you're on a splitboard. Poplar stringers in the core keep the feel lightweight and lively, while beech stringers near the edges creates unparalleled energy transfer from edge-to-edge. The sintered base holds a bunch of wax, and runs crazy fast. The film topsheet not only saves weight, but it's more environmentally friendly than traditional constructions. And you can thank Brian Iguchi, your favorite rider's favorite rider, for the show-stopping graphics.

Doesn't feel like a splitboard
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Jones made a great splitboard in the Mountain Twin Split. It skins beautifully, rides powder like a dream, and is very agile. You won't feel like you are on a response-less splitboard (many feel that way). This is a great board and you don't need to size up from your resort size. Can't wait to see the 2015 edition. I will note that many of the Jones splitboards seem to have issues with the connectivity or tightness of the two splitboard halves. Don't hesitate to check them out in a local shop or at REI before buying on Backcountry.com.
Are Voile pucks and Spark R&D binding...
Are Voile pucks and Spark R&D binding compatible with this board or are Karakoram bindings a must?
Standard voile puck and spark will work. This is what I have on the board at the moment.
