The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

Do you love chasing powder, but need a board that charges with precision and can make you smile in any conditions? Take a serious look at the Jones Mind Expander. The ME was my daily driver last season, freeriding mostly in Colorado, plus a Tahoe-to-Bachelor road trip and a few days in the Tetons. I can't wait to strap in with it again this fall.

The shape screams powder. An elongated nose, with spoon-like 3D shaping and a ton of surface area, tapers back to a shorter more agile tail. The ME did an outstanding job keeping me upright and afloat in dry Aspen powder and happily surfing on top of a dense and deep Mt. Bachelor snowpack. Carves are smooth and super-easy to initiate, and the base is wickedly fast. Jones designs have the most glide out there. It will get you across the flats and keep you cruising through low-angle trees and you chase down the next pow stash.

Hiding beneath the clean graphics and powder-friendly design is an approachable board that's remarkably agile and stable on corduroy, ice, and chop. Rip groomers and charge steeps with confidence. The stance is centered over the camber profile for precision and power. Traction tech edges deliver excellent grip on ice and firm snow without sacrificing speed. The tail loads up quickly with plenty of pop. While somewhat limited by the shape, the ME rides switch reasonably well.

Tons of tech, done right, keeps the focus on fun!

Ideal for
  • Surfy carves in trees and lower-angle slopes. Effortless turn initiation and very smooth edge to edge
  • Precision and power riding steeps and more technical terrain, Confidence-boosting edge grip and very stable at high speeds
  • Exceptional glide and speed on-piste and in powder. Reap the benefits of high-end design and materials
Not ideal for
  • Tapered, directional shape limits performance when riding switch in deeper, softer snow, Switch pow landings are doable, but takes a little forethought

The Mind Expander is an alternative all-mountain board that wants to slash every terrain feature in sight. Surf shapers Chris Christenson and Jeremy Jones designed the Mind Expander for the creative rider who draws lines blending freestyle, freeride, and surf styles. The blunted nose, full-size tail, tight sidecut, and 3D Contour Base 3.0 offer the nimble maneuverability of a directional board matched with the all-mountain performance of a directional twin. The Mind Expander features a Surf Camber profile that has a camber underfoot for better edge hold in variable conditions. To keep the playful board feel, the Mind Expander’s Bamboo Surf Core has V-core profiling that gives the board a softer flex between the feet for easy turn initiation and a stiffer flex in the tips so you won’t fold the nose. The Mind Expander is also built with Basalt Power Stringers for edge response, Rounded Recycled ABS Sidewalls for top sheet durability, and a super fast Sintered 8000 base.

Exceptional Personal Shopper Support for Ski Gear
5 /5
I arrived on Curated's website seeking the best price on ski boots, and more importantly, the chance to chat with a boot-fitter from home. I wanted a second opinion on the options I'd tried on at my local ski shop. I also wanted to get into the nitty gritty details of: my specific fit as double wide, small women's foot; and, the ski boot mechanics as they pertain to how women ski, to the skis I will be driving, to my current ability level, and to the level I intend to progress to. After making clear what I was looking for and sharing my measurements/ skier type with Leo, he put together his recommendations, and then answered every question I had about the items in our chat box with exceptional detail. He even jumped on a phone call to hash out my final choice for my overall set up. I had done hours of my own research prior to this, but to have Leo's one-on-one attention while reviewing a list of options "curated" specifically for my needs was a relief after combing the internet (read-Blister podcasts and Blister summit videos accessible to non-members). I confidently purchased ski boots and bindings for my new skis with Leo's guidance. Nothing about our interaction felt like the in-store sales "ick", when you feel the sales' person is pushing an item on you to make the sale. Instead, Leo was incredibly friendly as we chatted through Technica's W2W program, why he loves super feet, and other topics that gave me layer upon layer of foundational context for making my own informed decision on what to purchase that would work best for me. 10/10 service, knowledge, and efficiency in explaining his recommendations. Thanks so much Leo!!!

The board I wanted wasn’t available so Sarah quickly put together a list of boards that were similar to the one I wanted. She gave me the best recommendations to ride that hard pack on the East Coast. She was very helpful in the whole cancellation process and made the experience better! Definitely recommend her to anyone looking for some new gear!

Before this, I had never purchased skis in my life and felt overwhelmed when I first looked into buying a pair. Riley gave amazing recommendations based on what I was looking for and found the best options and deals. He was easy to talk to and made finding my first pair of skis much easier. Thank you!

Setting Leo apart was his diligence in learning exactly what product was best for ME. Not the best selling, not the best price, but the best FIT and long term value. He did a lot of work and research, asked the right questions, and walked me through the entire process over several days. Top notch expertise service!

As a first timer trying to figure out my new snowboarding fit and gear, I was lost and didn’t have the time or heart to figure it out. Here comes Bobby, he walked me through the whole process down to tech specs, best fit for purpose and skill level, and most importantly the sickest look I could’ve ever put together. Very grateful for the experience and hats off to Bobby 🤙🏾

Elizabeth made life so much easier!
5 /5
I was hesitant to use this website and service thinking it was going to be more of a sales pitch platform but boy was I wrong! Not having a clue on what to purchase for my two kids and for myself, Elizabeth made a stressful, overwhelming experience EASY. I answered basic questions, gave her my budget and she recommended 1-3 options for me to choose from! Ordering three sets of skis, boots and poles would have taken me months to determine “the right ones” but with Elizabeth I ordered all three packages in one evening, at great discount prices and will be here in time for Christmas to put huge smiles on my children’s faces. I highly recommend this service, more companies should do what Curated does! Thanks again Elizabeth 🖤
