Cardiff Goat Splitboard
The Cardiff Goat is a hard-charging, big-mountain board with freestyle roots, designed to traverse and descend the most rugged terrain.
Five years of testing and refinement, ten different iterations, and an untold number of days, mountain ranges, and descents. The Goat—a big-mountain charger that pro rider Bjorn Leines called the best board he's ever ridden—is the original Cardiff board design and is now better than ever. Developed and tested as a split, the Goat is a durable solid that can engage on icy sidehills, make surfy, high-speed turns, and take you down big, intimidating lines the world over. Original artwork by Kyson Dana, portraying the fearless mountain denizen who inspired this board.
The CARDIFF HALFcamber™ places camber where it is absolutely necessary and gradual rocker everywhere else. The result is maximum glide, maneuverability, and edge control.
Every Cardiff snowboard is uniquely designed to match the shape to the camber - resulting in a new standard of performance.
Big float, small board: by placing more surface area under foot and a gradual nose rocker the patent-pending HALFcamber™ allows us to create shorter boards with more float.
BUTTERblunt nose & WINGtail
This nose and tail are designed to allow easy transition from side to side but massive float without the extra length and weight of traditional powder shapes. This creates the perfect nose and tail to pop and butter.
Blend of Radial and Progressive sidecuts are used on all CARDIFF boards to give each board a unique character.
For those that require durability and dependibility
The Enduro build is for those that require the most durable, reliable and high performance equipment. This build features our CARBONcore and triaxial fiberglass construction which creates a torsionally rigid ride and adds strength to the board for increased durability.
For those that demand cutting edge ultralight gear
This is a true 100% carbon fiber construction build. The core is a lightweight poplar + paulownia mix with vertically laid aluminum strips which balances the carbon to give it a more damp ride. in our splitboard models we added reinforcements under the toe piece and the ENDUROcap. On the solid version we use our urethane SHOWtopper finish, which allows for quick and easy snow shedding.
