The Explorer offers a fun ride at a very nice price. It rings up a couple hundred dollars cheaper than the Jones Solution or the Hovercraft, making it an obvious choice for our Best Buy Award. While it's very different from the Solution, it still offers a fun and worthy ride that we enjoyed and definitely wanted to reward. This board is more fun for most riders: riders who mainly enjoy softer snow and don't seek out the steep couloirs or firm snow that the Solution is better suited for. For excellent value and a worthy ride, look no further. The closest equivalent women's board in the Jones Line is the, new for 2018, Dream Catcher Splitboard.
The Explorer has received some upgrades since we tested it. Check them out below.
