Just as at home dancing its way down spines as it is soaring off the edge of a cliff, the CRANE is purpose-built for the freerider who likes high speeds, big air, and playful pow days.
From high-speed arcs on the hardpack to soaring airs and elegant lines down the steep and deep, the Crane is our freestyle-oriented freeride board that flies free on the full gamut of terrain. Our patent-pending HALFcamber65 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. To complement the tighter sidecut radius, we added our SPEEDbumps - reverse sidecut bumps aligned with the bindings to add grip when the board is on edge in firm conditions. BOARDERpatrol technology uses poplar stringer which fuses with the UNIwall seamless urethane sidewall to reinforce the edge and provide an incredibly damp ride. Kyson Dana created the Crane's original artwork, which channels the elegant and fine-tuned craft found within.
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.
Every Cardiff snowboard is uniquely designed to match the shape to the camber - resulting in a new standard of performance.
