The 2019 Jones Snowboards will be gracing the snowboard racks soon, and their line-up for the 2018-19 season shows a pretty minimally changed range compared with 2017-18 – naturally with some upgrades and tweaks to the existing line up as well as showcasing some new graphics.
There are some new boards too.
The boards are outlined below and categorized where I see them fitting. Jones are focused predominantly on the all-mountain to powder end of the range for snowboards and don’t really deal in purely park/freestyle boards, IMO.
There are a couple of new models for 2019.
- Jones Mind Expander Split (the Mind Expander was new for 2018 and has been well received and they are now bringing in a split model for 2019)
- Jones Women’s Mind Expander (as well as a split version of the Mind Expander, they are also bringing out a women’s and a kids version for 2019)
- Jones Mini Mind Expander (kids version of the Mind Expander)
- Jones Mountain Twin Split (a split version of the popular Mountain Twin – so you can get more freestyle in the backcountry)
- Jones Aviator Split
As far as I can tell the Aviator Split (the regular version still has a 2019 model) is the only 2018 model that isn’t returning for 2019 – but that doesn’t mean their split board collection has been decreased – there are 2 new split boards to replace it! – the Mountain Twin Split and the Mind Expander Split.
Beginner Jones Boards
As was the case for 2018 and previous years, Jones don’t really do beginner boards, IMO. The closest that would come to beginner boards would be the Mountain Twin and Twin Sister.
Both these boards would be doable for beginners but not strictly beginner boards.
Jib/Street Jones Boards
There aren’t any boards in the Jones lineup that could be classified in this category, IMO.
Freestyle/Park Jones Boards
Again, there aren’t any boards in the Jones lineup that I would classify in this category.
All-Mountain-Freestyle Jones Boards
Still nothing! Told you they are more all-mountain/freeride focused.
Aggressive All-Mountain-Freestyle Jones Boards
All-Mountain Jones Boards

Available as Split Boards
The following are also available as split boards. Naturally, being a backcountry focused snowboarding company, plenty of Jones boards are available as splits.
Without actually verifying this, I would say, off hand, that they offer the most variety of splitboards in the industry. I certainly can’t think of anyone else who has more.

Cool to see a Youth Board come in a split model. That’s pretty rare to see.
Thanks for reading
So, there you have Jones’ lineup for the 2018-19 season.
I had the chance to demo some of the 2019 line-up in the spring and I will be releasing the reviews for those throughout the year. If there isn’t a full review link next to a board above it might have gained a review since writing this, so search the site to see if there is one.
