    So the new Jones splits have notches in the tails that you can hook their Tension Tail Clips onto. Really fast and easy.

    I drilled holes in the tails of on both of the T.Rice splits that I have had. That was easy though since Mervin uses plastic spacers in the tips so no wood core was exposed. I’ve though about doing the same thing with my 2015 Solution but don’t want to mess with sealing the core. Good to see that Jones is addressing this from the factory.

    Oh. . . Thanks for the catalogue pic. They aren’t on Jones’ site yet. Looks slick.

    Wait. Are these rebranded Coltex skins? I’ve heard great things about them but never a splitboard version steadily available in the US. Way to go Jeremy!

    @barrows – Didn’t you start a thread a while back about Coltex skins?

    The Jones skins are made in Switzerland by a company called POMOCA. There’s going to be two grades to choose from- universal and premium. The premiums have a rubber backing keeps them from getting soaked and makes it easier to them pull apart. Both styles come either with a universal clip (uncut) or the tension tail clip (pre-cut for Jones boards). I’m getting this from the catalog, assuming nothing changes between now and production.

    I have a pair of Jones skins currently cut for my 2015 Solution.

    Adding a premium skin and adding tail clips/straps will be a great improvement to the line.

    I have some POMOCA skins for my ski setup. I have the Climb Glide Pros. 70% Mohair 30% Nylon and they are awesome! I looked to see if they made any splitboard skins but they don’t. So this is good to know that Jones rebrands them. I might have to get some.

    If that were a grommeted hole (a la K2) instead of a notch, it would provide most of the benefit of a notch and your split can turn into a rescue sled.
    *and*
    Are there any other splitboards the premium skins (with the nut) will work on, other than Jones?
    (I’m fully aware K2 skins don’t work with any other split w/o modification)
