Features:

Flex: 6 - Medium

Softer snowboards are easier to press and won’t kick your ass if you make a mistake. Stiffer decks are more stable at speed and super responsive edge-to-edge.


Directional: On Bataleon's more freeride orientated boards the center base is at its most narrow and the uplift is at its highest this creates unparalleled float in pow super fast edge-to-edge transitioning.


Low Camber: Camber profiles are defined from low to high. Higher camber make for more dynamic boards that need to be ridden more aggressively to get maximum performance. Lower camber boards are smoother on lower speeds and in powder. All camber profiles run from nose to tail. Higher is not always better.


Triple Base™ Technology: At the heart of every Bataleon is a combination of 3BT™ and positive camber. It’s an innovative solution to the profile puzzle that minimizes the potential for edge-catch without sacrificing ollie power or carving performance. From this starting point, Bataleon fine-tunes each element according to the boards desired riding style.


Sidekick: SideKick™ builds on the concept of Triple Base by increasing the sidebase uplift just outside the widest points of the nose and tail. The tips become more like a hull, boosting float in deep snow and slicing through crud. It also helps the board to roll quickly and evenly from edge to edge.


Tri-AX Lamination: Bataleon's three-way fiberglass weave is light, strong and crazy responsive. We use this to beef up the flex pattern on our more aggressive boards.


Light Woodcore: 50/50 Paulownia and poplar creates a balanced core that’s lively yet strong.


Ultraglide S Base: A premium, 7000-grade sintered base reserved for our high-end models. Packing more molecules into the P-tex means it’s super tough and hauls ass.


Solid Walls: We use tried and trusted ABS sidewalls for most of the collection. For the best flex to strength ratio.


Dual Super Tubes: A Super Tube on either side of the board enhances pop and gives the camber more snap.


Carbon Stringers: Bataleon's tried and tested carbon layups. We deploy them in different areas to fine-tune the feel of each model.


+2 Backseat Inserts: Backseat inserts are an set of extra inserts 4cm behind the bottom inserts. This allows you to set your bindings all the way back, so you can keep floating on those deep pow days. By shifting your weight more back on the board the nose stays up and the pressure on you back leg is reduced.
