Product Info

Like a PBR or a Busch Lite at a college party, the Bataleon Goliath Wide 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 than anyone else you come across on the slopes. Whether you're shotgunning rails or chugging powder lines, the Goliath Wide Snowboard 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.

Laminates

Tri-Ax LaminateTriaxial laminates over and under the core deliver precision in your riding.

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

Lightning EdgeEnables you to carve with more feeling and precision

Edge BevelAll Bataleon boards leave the factory with a 2-3˚ edge bevel for an ultra smooth ride straight out of the plastic.

Binding Compatibility

Far from Goliath

Comments about Bataleon Goliath Wide 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.

Comments about Bataleon Goliath Wide Snowboard 2013:

I was left wanting more with this board. My previous Bataleon board was the 2012 Undisputed, which was really amazing!!!, but this Goliath wasn't anywhere close. I thought the speed was pretty good, but the handling could have been much better.

Comments about Bataleon Goliath Wide Snowboard 2013:

This was the first TBT board that I have tried and after a run to get used to the raised contact points, I was hooked. Super fast edge to edge when carving, really buttery and fun in the flats and solid hold at high speeds. I will say that I might go with a Whatever or maybe the Evil Twin to soften up the feel a bit for more freestyle riding, but the Goliath was perfect for all mountain.
