Cardiff The Crane Splitboard
From high speed runs to playful pow days, the Cardiff Crane is an all-mountain freeride twin that tours, rides, and flies with effortless elegance.
From high-speed arcs on the hardpack to soaring airs and elegant lines down the steep and deep, the Crane is Cardiff’s freestyle-oriented freeride board that flies free on the full gamut of terrain. Cardiff’s HALFcamber™ design (with camber underfoot on 65% of the deck), along with a perfectly matched pivot point near the center of the board, offers more traditional all-mountain twin performance that's equally composed on edge or in the air. Kyson Dana created the Crane's original artwork, which channels the elegant and fine-tuned craft found within.
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.
Reverse sidecut bumps aligned with the bindings add grip to tighter sidecut radii.
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.
