DO YOU WANT TO RIDE BACKCOUNTRY? BETTER BRING THE RIGHT GEAR!

The Bonsai is a uniquely shaped big mountain board intended for serious riders focused on serious work. And yet, even the most stoic athletes appreciate a little fun from time to time.

At it’s core, the Bonsai employs our patent-pending “Half-Camber” which places camber only in the most critical of areas, then blends a snappy, playful rocker everywhere else.

All Cardiff Splitboards are offered in two different builds:

ENDURO: ARGUABLY THE LIGHTEST/MOST DURABLE BUILD ON THE MARKET

  • Scratch Resistant Topsheet

  • Full Triaxial Fiberglass Build

  • Ultra-light Paulownia/Poplar/Titanal core

PRO CARBON: ARGUABLY THE MOST DURABLE CARBON BUILD ON THE MARKET

  • Full carbon protection with lightweight topsheet

  • Ultra-light Paulownia/Poplar/Titanal core

TECH SPECS

IMG_9875.JPG

HALFcamber (TM)

The patent-pending CARDIFF HALFcamber places camber where it is absolutely necessary and gradual rocker everywhere else. The result is maximum glide, maneuverability and edge control.

FLOATilla (TM)

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.

NOVERhang (TM)

The patent-pending CARDIFF HALFcamber enables us to create wider-waisted high performance boards that will accommodate larger boot sizes without toe drag.

bcDNA

The backcountry is our DNA. All our shapes are designed for big mountain riding whether you are at the resort or 1000 miles from it. Our splits are uniquely and subtly different from our solids because of the conditions they are designed for.

GROOMtune (TM)

Our solid shapes are backcountry inspired but resort tuned - meaning all our solids have been shaped and adapted to ride on groomed snow.

SPLITtech OPTIMIZED

All CARDIFF splitboards are optimized for both soft-boot and hard-boot touring setups. Hard-boots typically have longer sole lengths than soft-boots and hard-boot bindings such as Phantom Alphas sit lower to the surface of the splitboard. This requires a slightly wider deck underfoot, which all of our splitboards feature. Our splitboard cores are reinforced in the connection areas and bindings to handle additional forces from the metal and other hard bindings.
