The Bataleon Fun.Kink Snowboard is the best of both worlds, giving you the power of camber and Bataleon s Freestyle TBT, mixed in with freestyle features such as a soft flex and a true twin profile for a board that turns the entire mountain into your own personal park. Freestyle TBT offers raised edges in the nose and tail for numerous benefits, including enhanced butters, float in powder and many more. The Bataleon Fun.Kink brings on maximum pop for throwing down your huge bag of tricks in the park or anywhere else on the mountain.
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.
Directional Directional shape with a twin symmetrical flex. Slightly longer nose than tail, but the portions of the base in contact with the snow are the same in both directions.
Freestyle TBT Freestyle TBT is the most 'all round' TBT shape in the range. Featuring a traditional camber profile on the center base section which possesses a medium / wide width to retain decent stability on presses and rails. There is now a longer contact length (still without TBT) between the feet to minimize twitchiness at high speed. Freestyle TBT is still symmetrical about the nose and tail for equal performance when riding switch as forward. A 'good for everything' shape with fast edge-to-edge freestyle looseness and great overall stability.
Toughcore Made 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.
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).
Hammer Edge Hammer 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!
Precise Pattern 4 x 2 The 4 x 2 / 20 pattern allows you to attach your bindings with scientific precision.

Comments about Bataleon Fun.Kink Snowboard 2014:
Sometimes names for certain products make no sense, but this board really is insanely fun. Soft, playful flex in the park, fast edge to edge with the freestyle TBT when cruising the mountain and not to mention the Yasmine Bleeth inspired 'Baywatch' graphic. This is my first Bataleon but wont be the last.
