For the second season, Jones Snowboards is offering their Mohair splitboard skins. Last season’s skins sported 100% Mohair while this season’s feature 70% Mohair and 30% Synthetic Nylon fibers. New to the skin lineup this season is the Premium skins. The Premium’s feature a rubber backing which increases waterproofing and requires less of a back workout when pulling the skins apart. Both the Universal and Premium will now feature tail connectors, and riders will be given two choices of tail connectors. Riders who own this season’s Jones splitboards, may opt for the the new Quick Tension tail clips, while other riders would stick with the Universal tail clips.
Not all splitboard skins are created equal. Some glide well, but are slippery on the steeps. Others are like velcro – great for climbing, terrible for touring. Jones Universal Climbing Skins eliminate this issue as these 70% Mohair / 30% Synthetic Nylon skins offer the perfect balance of glide and grip. The premium natural mohair fibers deliver unmatched glide in any snow condition because they remain soft and flexible at any temperature. The nylon fibers provide extra traction when the skin track gets steep or icy. Skin fibers are also coated with EVER DRY Anti-glopping treatment to improve performance in wet snow and keep your skins dry lap after lap. Universal skins are available in two models: Trim-To-Fit with Universal Tail Clip and Pre-Cut with Quick Tension Tail Clip.
Jones Premium Skins are the ultimate high performance splitboard climbing skin and offer unmatched performance in any snow condition. The blend of 70% Mohair / 30% Synthetic Nylon fibers provides the perfect balance of glide and grip and the fibers have been coated with both EVER DRY Anti-glopping treatment to improve performance in wet snow and GLIDE TECH treatment which helps maintain the glide of the fibers for the lifetime of the skin. Jones Premium Skins have been laminated with RUBBER SAFER SKIN backing. This rubber layer guarantees the skin will not absorb water and also makes the skins easy to pull apart. Premium skins are available in two models: Trim-To-Fit with Universal Tail Clip and Pre-Cut with Quick Tension Tail Clip.
Universal Tail Clip
The Universal Tail Clip is designed to keep skins locked on in the most challenging snow conditions. The clip anchors on both the inner edge and outside tail edge and provides adjustable skin tension using the attached stretcher strap. Four solid rivets anchor the stretcher strap to the skin. The Universal Tail Clip is compatible with all splitboard brands.
Quick Tension Tail Clip
The Quick Tension Tail Clip is designed for 2015-16 Jones Splitboards. All new Jones Splitboards now feature a notch cut into the tail of both skis that allows the Quick Tension Tail Clip fastener to simply slide into the notch and secure the skin.
