Bataleon Fun.Kink Snowboard 2015

Bataleon Shop all Bataleon
The Bataleon Fun.Kink Snowboard is the president's limousine of the snowboard world. Meant to provide a stable and comfortable ride, the Fun.Kink is great for beginners and for any skillset that enjoys a controlled ride all over the mountain. The Freestyle TBT combines a medium wide centerbase flat section, making it fun on jibs and jumps, with medium width sidebases with a larger total uplift for agile turning, more forgiveness and greater powder float. A Pop Core adds snappiness for larger ollies. No matter what your skillset is, the Bataleon Fun.Kink Snowboard brings the party.
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 Rating: 3 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - A light medium flex, great for all terrain shredding while excelling in the park.
Freestyle TBT - The width of the two sidebases and the centerbase are equal. The equal section widths give a symmetrical edge-to-edge concave, which is combined with a now more aggressive traditional tip to tail camber profile on the centerbase section to perfectly balance park riding and general cruising. Boards with Freestyle TBT boast a longer contact length between the feet. Freestyle TBT is still symmetrical about the nose and tail to give the same performance when riding switch as forwards. A 'good-for-everything' shape, with fast and free edge-to-edge looseness and agility and overall stability.
Pop Core - Snappy, flexible poplar wood that gives it a soft 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).
Binding Compatibility
Precise Pattern - The 4x2 / 20 pattern allows you to attach your bindings with scientific precision.


  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freeride, Freestyle, Powder
    All-mountain snowboards are designed for exploring the whole mountain. They are your go-to for a snowboard that will do anything. They feel at home on groomers, powder, park runs and almost anything in between. The vast majority of snowboarders choose all-mountain boards for their great versatility. If you’re just getting started or unsure of exactly what you need, an all-mountain snowboard is a great choice.
    Freeride snowboards are designed for the rider that spends most of the day off groomed runs and in backcountry terrain. They typically have a stiffer flex and are ridden in longer sizes than freestyle snowboards. Freeride snowboards often feature a directional shape that is designed to perform optimally in one direction.
    Freestyle or park snowboards tend to be a bit shorter in length and love terrain parks, rails, jibs, trash cans, tree trunks, riding switch (non-dominant foot forward), wall rides and more. Freestyle boards often feature a true twin shape, and are typically selected by those looking to ride the terrain park. A more versatile variant of a freestyle board is the all-mountain freestyle, which combines the versatility of an all mountain snowboard with the playfulness of a freestyle snowboard.
    Powder snowboards love powder. Often associated with freeride snowboards, powder boards sometimes feature a wider nose and a tapered narrower tail. The binding inserts, which determine the rider's stance, are often set back on a powder snowboard to help the rider float the tip of the board through the deep stuff. Powder snowboards sometimes also feature rocker, a design element where the tip (and tail) rise starts farther back on the board, which also helps the rider maintain tip float through the pow.
  • Ability Level: Beginner-Intermediate
    Someone who is new to the sport or working on linking smoother turns falls into this ability level. Typical beginner ski/snowboard qualities include: softer materials, narrower widths, and capped constructions. The idea is to create a ride that is easy to turn and very forgiving in case you become off balance or fall in the back seat. The addition of rocker in the tip and tail gives a catch-free feeling and shorter contact length when the ski/snowboard is flat on the snow, making it easier to turn.
  • Rocker Type: Camber
    Camber is the traditional profile for snowboards, and still popular among high-level park and pipe riders because it offers maximum energy and pop. A cambered board has a smooth arch underfoot and touches near the tip and tail when unweighted; when the rider’s weight is added, it provides a long, evenly pressured running surface and edge.
  • Shape: Directional Twin
  • Flex Rating: Medium
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.
