Because we see the backcountry as our personal terrain park we love the freestyle capabilities of the Crane Pro Carbon Split Snowboard. This high-tech deck delivers everything we need for a full day of fun beyond the resort. Cardiff’s Pro Carbon construction knocks weight off our setup while increasing responsiveness for a poppy and playful trip up and down the mountain. Like all of Cardiff’s boards the Crane is shaped with a combination radial and progressive sidecut that adds speed to our shred without sacrificing carve-ability. Between this swift silhouette and a graphic-infused sintered base our backcountry buddies are unlikely to catch up giving us more time to dip into bowls and discover naturally-formed kickers.
