Why we chose the Jones Jones Nomad Pro Splitboard Skins:The ultimate all-condition, all-weather splitboard skins.
While a slip ’n’ slide might bring back fond memories of innocent youthfulness and school summer holidays, it can spell disaster when out touring in the backcountry. The Jones Nomad Pro Skins are all about grip ’n’ glide. Although not ideal, most splitboard enthusiasts will probably get away with a bent pair of poles, a dried-out base, or a temperamental binding buckle for a day in the backcountry. A sub-standard pair of skins, on the other hand, could leave you having to curtail your mission and make the long trudge back in bounds.
As the higher performing of the two offerings in the line, the Nomad Pros are built to work in any temperature and snow condition. Jones have collaborated with industry leaders, Pomoca, and called upon their Swiss skinning expertise for producing these ones.

There’s a blend of 70% mohair and 30% synthetic nylon within the skins. The higher mohair density keeps the skins gliding effectively, while the nylon works to repel wetter snow and keeps the skin drier, for longer. Providing you’re not the kind of splitboarder who dons the lycra for the dawn patrol, you’ll get on well with these.
