Product Info

For a board that will take you down any sick rail or let you jib any ridiculous urban feature, check out the Bataleon Disaster Snowboard. The Disaster offers Bataleon s signiture TBT™ rocker profile that gives you the best of both the rocker and camber designs. Combine this with the Jib TBT™ shape and you have a board that is perfect for hitting any feature you see. You'll be sticking more jumps, bombing hills faster, going straight as a ruler, doing crazy carves, better butters, freaky floats, more powerful pops.... we could go on forever but you get the point. Make sure your board is the Bataleon Disaster Snowboard. A true disaster would be if you didn't ride this board.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Triple Base Technology (TBT™)The side bases have gradually increasing angles starting from flat in the binding area, to maximum lift at the widest points. This makes the board forgiving when ridden flat, but still super grippy when put on the edge. Combining a full tip to tail classic camber with a rail to rail concave, it blends the looseness of a rocker shape board with the pop and response of camber. The unique thing about TBT™ is that even when the rider's weight is pushing down on the board the edges stay lifted. On edge the camber is loaded ready to pop you into your next turn. Meanwhile the edge is fully engaged with a solid power distribution along a smooth edge curve.

Flex

Flex Rating (1 Soft – 10 Stiff)2, perfect for jibs and rails

Shape

JIB TBT™Made to excel in urban settings and jibbing, the TBT™ starts under your feet for a super loose effect while the extra wide center base stabilizes your slides and presses.

Sidecut

Twin geometry for equal ease riding regular or switch

Core

Toughcore™Made with pressure bonded wood composite technology, this core is very hard to break, yet very flexible. It's especially designed for reaching soft jib flex without sacrificing strength.

Laminates

Bi-Ax LaminateBiaxial laminates over and under the woodcore create an easy flex with lots of feel.

Base

Extruded BaseLow maintenance, easy to repair and can take a good beating

Edges

Hammer Edge™Thicker, stronger and more durable then your average edge

Edge BevelAll Bataleon boards leave the factory with a 2-3˚ edge bevel for an ultra smooth ride straight out of the plastic.

Binding Compatibility

Wide PatternA 4x4 insert pack allows for a wider range great for rocking that extra wide stance. Use your binding discs sideways to fine tune.

Comments about Bataleon Disaster Snowboard 2013:

Last season I was riding my Capita Horrorscope pretty hard. After only about a month, she cracked right down the middle through the core. Being an avid snowboarder, this was not okay. The same day, I headed to the local shop and picked out the Disaster. I could not be any happier my Capita broke (other than it was a waste of like $350.) I had a Fun.Kink a few years ago and liked it, so I chose a 151 Disaster, now named Jessica. I like a nice soft flex, and this board offers exactly that. However, she can still handle everything else I've thrown at her, including a trip or two over the 65 footer. I'm mostly into rails and street-type stuff, and this board is so great for it. The camber gives her such good pop, and the fellas at Bataleon have learned how to construct some super light snowboards. I will always be a fan of TBT. It's the greatest thing. The smaller surface contact with the snow makes Jessica nice and speedy, not to mention she slides down those rails like she's made of butter. So, overall, I love this board. We've been through a lot; some tough bails, and some great successes. If you want to be as happy as I am, a good way to start would be by buying a Bataleon Disaster.

Comments about Bataleon Disaster Snowboard 2013:

This board is the best I've ever purchased! With just a couple hours of warm up this 36 year old dude was pulling stuff I never would even consider trying before! Everything from the ride to just carving down the hill to sick jibs in the park and finishing every line with a buttery manual riding it out as far as you want to go....
Like I said "Butter on Everything" it's not just for toast anymore!

    Comments about Bataleon Disaster Snowboard 2013:

    TBT is the real deal. Ride straighter, spin faster, and land with confidence. this board is freakishly soft but because of the traditional camber shape and TBT it still has decent pop.
