Product Info

Concrete, steel, and death gaps are all a recipes for disaster, so hop on the Bataleon Disaster Snowboard and cook up some mean jibs and handle those disasters like a boss. Soft playful flex mixed in with the Jib TBT makes the Disaster a solid jib stick. Jib TBT gives you an overall loose feel due to the slightly lifted edges in the nose and tail, which is complimented nicely by a mild camber. This gives the board a great pop while still have a loose and forgiving feel, great for locking onto rails and jibs. Bless your local rail, statue, or wall with the worthy Bataleon Disaster Snowboard.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Triple Base Technology (TBT)Triple Base Technology divides the nose and tail area into 3 parts: 1. The left sidebase for turning left. 2. The center flat middle base for going straight. 3. The right sidebase for turning right. Combining a full tip to tail classic camber with a rail to rail concave, it gives the looseness of a rocker shape board with the pop and response of camber. On edge, the camber is loaded and 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: 2 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)A soft flex, designed for jibing and taking on urban features. 2-3-2. Slightly stiffer waist versus the tip and tail. Great for pressing, sliding, and urban jibbing.

Shape

Jib TBTJib TBT is great for jibbing and urban riding. The TBT is completely symmetrical about the nose and tail. The profile of these boards is trapezoidal giving a slightly cambered overall shape. On the center base section, instead of a smoothly curved camber there are three flat sections: The boards are flat between the feet with two flat sections at the nose and tail and are angled slightly so that the center section is raised off the floor slightly when it is not under pressure. this allows the board to carve like it's cambered and press like it's rockered! On the side bases, the TBT uplift begins under your feet for a super loose and forgiving effect, with the TBT uplift angles minimized as works best on rail boards. The extra center flat base width stabilizes your slides and presses.

TwinCompletely symmetrical geometries and flex from tip to tail

Core

ToughcoreMade with pressure bonded wood composite that is very hard to break, yet very flexible. Specially developed to reach a soft jib flex without sacrificing strength.

Laminates

Bi-Ax LaminateBi-ax laminates over and under the wood core include fiberglass layers aligned in two directions at 45 degees to the edges. This creates an easy and forgiving flex, which allows you to really feel the terrain.

Base

Extruded BaseEasy to repair and takes a beating! Low maintenance and still slides well with irregular waxing, not that the guys at Bataleon are condoning anything other than a militant waxing regime (like Rihanna's).

Edges

Hammer EdgeHammer edges are thicker, tougher, stronger and more durable than your average edges. That's good when they are up against metal rails and concrete stairs, but it's also useful when the powder is not quite as deep as it looks!

Binding Compatibility

Wide Pattern 4 x 4The 4 x 4 / 16 insert pack allows for a wide range of stances and is great for rocking them extra wide.

Comments about Bataleon Disaster Snowboard 2014:

This board is great for any thing urban or jib related. It is for sure weaker on the jump end, but it can still be taken off 35-40 footers if you want. The board is defiantly durable with the the thicker edges. Just make sure to wax it out of the box often if you don't want base burn.

        Just got back from a weekend in mammoth. First time riding the board and it felt awesome. Also I ran into my buddies board very hard with the nose of the board. It slightly cracked the top sheet; but for how hard I hit him I was surprised that was the only damage. No cracked edge or damage to the board besides the topsheet. This board can definitely take a beating

        Super soft flex. Get those presses locked in the right way. Soft flex of course means that it gets kinda swirly at high speeds. TBT makes jibbing and freeriding and buttering super fun and playful. Solid Bataleon construction.

                I bought this for my fiancé at the end of the 2013 season. He had a shattered, split, and heavily used board before and needed something with better carving, light weight, and other things he's been wanting in a board. Bought him this and union bindings and it's probably the lightest set in the world. He loves it and can't wAit to use it this season, and teach this year again on a much better board. He loves it, totally recommend, build beautifully.

                Comments about Bataleon Disaster Snowboard 2014:

                I bought this board specifically for park riding, but i used it in varying conditions. The first thing i noticed about the board is that it has a loose feeling like rocker boards due to its TBT(Triple Base Tech). It was both good and bad in my opinion. The board is cambered so it still feels somewhat stable for a soft board and you dont feel like you can easily catch an edge. The down side to the tbt is not being able to really hold an edge up the lip of jumps I just felt like it was a little shaky compared to a traditional cabered board. The board also had pop but nothing special just average. I also didnt feel locked in to 50/50's which is not a bad thing but though I should share. I rode the board in 3 ft of powder too and it did fine, but its not its strength by any means. On groomers it held an edge but didnt really make nice arcing turns. I am 5' 10" and rode the 153 I wear a size 9.5 boot. I would reccomend this board to someone who likes the loose feel of rockered boards in a camber profile for riding the park. I wouldn'tt reccomend this for someone whos going big in the park or all mountain riding.
