Product Info

Like a PBR or a Busch Lite at a college party the Bataleon Goliath Snowboard fits perfectly in anyone's hands (but we suggest you wear it on your feet, it is a snowboard after all). Constructed with a medium flex and sintered base, you're getting a ride that is perfect for the entire mountain and is almost certainly going to be faster then anyone else you come across on the slopes. Whether you're shotgunning rails or chugging powder lines, the Goliath will keep you on the edge of your seat all day long.

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)5, perfect for all-mountain riding

Shape

FREESTYLE TBT™Shaped to hit everything on the mountain giving you fast edge to edge transfer, freestyle looseness and overall stability

Core

Core CorePoplar core with hardwood enforcements along the insert rows increases the core strength of your board and channels all energy into more pop.

Base

Sintered BaseWith great wax absorption that is as tough as nails, this base comes with factory wax infused. Wax your sintered base regularly to get the most bang for your buck.

Edges

Comments about Bataleon Goliath Snowboard 2013:

I love this board. First board I've brought brand new & it has exceeded my expectations.

Looks great, really easy to ride, & you can take it in the park if that's your thing. The unique triple base technology (TBT) of Bataleon Goliath means the base isn't entirely flat & curves up toward the edges. The effect is the board is a little less likely to catch an edge & send you tumbling. As a result, your confidence grows.
The TBT also helps out with variable snow conditions i.e. from powder to compact.

The board has the old style binding attachment system, but that's okay. It works well, so why fix what's not broke.

Oh, did I mention it looks great. Awesome graphics, not OTT.
I would definitely recommend this board.

Comments about Bataleon Goliath Snowboard 2013:

I'm on my second goliath, the first one lasted nearly 100 days of riding and is still very rideable but it was time for a new one. TBT is excellent for being both catch free and stable at high speeds (but I'll admit it takes a little to get used to the different feel vs. a traditional cambered board). The edge to edge transition does take a little more work than on a camber or rocker, but the grip once there is worth it. TBT crushes powder but can also do very well on nasty ice. Its just all around a great board. Sure others can do a few things better but TBT is the complete package.

Far from Goliath

Comments about Bataleon Goliath Snowboard 2013:

I will admit I have been on the fence as far as the true value of Bataleon's Triple Base Tech. And after this shred sesh, I know what side I stand on. I will not deny that there is a place for TBT, but that place is not under my feet. First off, getting edge to edge takes quite a bit more effort and down right difficult when getting around via one foot. I lost much of my confidence at speed and didn't think I picked up a whole lot in return. Sure the deck was more buttery, but it was not ideal for an all-mountain shred stick. If I was looking into a board that could be overly catch-free and a bit stiffer, the Goliath might work out. But if I wanted to maintain get edge hold and be able to rail turns as well as feel confident in mixed conditions, I would go a different direction.
