The Storm Chaser Split unlocks access to those remote frozen swells and packs insane
float into a short, but still high volume splitboard. The ultra-wide waist width maximizes
the float of the shortened running length and the Surf Rocker profile pops the nose
even further out of the snow when you step on the gas. The Storm Chaser’s short
sidecut will have you ripping tight tree runs like a GS course on even the deepest days.
The unique shape is matched with Inner/Outer Traction Tech 1.0 edges for enhanced
grip on icy skintracks or firm descents and Boltless Bridge and Karakoram Ultra Clips
for unmatched torsional board connection in ride mode. New for 2020, we’ve added
Rounded Recycled ABS Sidewalls for improved topsheet durability.

The Big Mountain Shapes have a long tradition. Since I personally like to ride surf shapes that offer me max. powder fun, I am happy about the new Big Mountain Shapes. These are however shorter than conventional ones. Usually the missing length is compensated by the width. I find it courageous and welcome the fact that a big brand like JONES is building exclusive shapes that don't suit every taste. Also the Storm Chaser had to grow first. Its first length for market launch was 147. Since 18/19 there is a 157 and with that you can take it seriously to splitboarding.
