Distortia Snowboard is the Eve to Batelon's Evil Twin. Besides the narrow waist to accommodate smaller feet, there is nothing 'girlie' about this board. The Distortia features a softer flex with the Twin PBT, making this a real park destroyer. Don't get carried away though, just because this board is designed for the park doesn't mean it can't ride anywhere else. Triple Base Technology allows you to ride the Distortia through any conditions, crud to pow, thanks to the division of the base in 3 parts. Crazy pop, true twin design and triple base technology makes the Distortia an easy choice for any female shredder.
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 Rating: 3 - An overall medium-soft flex, catered to freestyle riding. 3-4-3. Slightly stiffer waist versus the tip and tail. Great for pressing, sliding, and urban jibbing.
Twin - Completely symmetrical geometries and flex from tip to tail
Twin TBT - Twin TBT is great for park riding. The center base section now features a traditional camber (Smoothly curving) rather than trapezoidal camber profile, but TWIN TBT retains a large enough flat base width for easy presses and rail slides. These boards feature longer contact lengths between the feet than JIB or PARK for more stability at speed! Twin TBT is a half-way between the TBT's specialized for riding rails and kickers.
Core Core - Poplar core with hardwood reinforcements along the insert rows. This increases the board's core strength and channels stored energy to deliver more pop.
Bi-Ax Laminate - Bi-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.
Extruded Base - Easy 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).
Lightning Edge - Thinner lightning edges enable you to carve with more feeling and precision, and they weigh less.
Precise Pattern 4 x 2 - The 4 x 2 / 20 pattern allows you to attach your bindings with scientific precision.
