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 Enduro 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.
ENDURO BUILD: Intermediate to Expert
The perfect balance of performance, durability, weight, and dampness. Vertically laminated carbon fiber is painstakingly laid up with thin alternating layers of poplar and paulownia. Poplar for snap and pop. Paulownia for dampness and lightweight. Carbon fiber for camber retention. On the solids, we use cross-directional launch pads in the binding area to transfer rider forces more efficiently to the edges. Triaxial fiberglass for a damp and durable torsional and longitudinal pop. Fully wrapped Uni-wall for durability and dampness. For glide, we use one of the fastest bases on the market, our sintered race base + graphite for speed and durability. On the solids, we finish with a water-based lacquer for gorgeous graphics. On the splits we use scratch-resistant, ice shedding top sheets.
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
