Bataleon Riot Snowboard 2012

Many years and dollars have gone into the R&D on the 2012 Bataleon Riot – this board is easily the highest tech true twin in Bataleon’s line. Everything from the core to the glass to the base is The Hotness. Basalt stringer enforced tips and tail amplify the preloaded pop in the TBT nose and tail. Perfect for the big kicker line and super stable when you Chinese downhill a double black diamond - switch. And what’s the best way to thank Bataleon for reinvesting their dollars in this board instead of buying their owners a Porsche? Buy this puppy and enjoy the most epic winter adventures you can imagine.
Rocker Type
Triple Base Technology (TBT) - A TBT snowboard is flat between the bindings with angled side bases that are lifted with gradually increasing angles. The uplift starts from flat in the binding area to a maximum increase at the widest point of the board.
Twin TBT - Wide center, flat base. Great for park riding because the wider center base stabilizes your jumps and railslides. The uplift on the side bases give a super loose and forgiving feel.
Flex
Flex Rating (1 Stiff - 10 Soft) - 4 / 5 / 4, Very responsive in the nose and tail, Aggressive in the middle.
(Note: Bataleon operates of a flex rating, not measured by stiffness. A more flexible board will have a higher number rating associated with it.)
Shape
True twin
Core
Core Core - Poplar core with hardwood enforcements along the insert rows. Thi increases the core strength of your board and channels all energy into more pop.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freestyle
    All-Mountain
    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.
    Freestyle
    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.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker is another variation on the rocker theme that seeks to provide a little more hard snow edgehold and pop than full rocker while retaining ease of turning and float. Performance is between a fully rockered board and a flat board.
  • Flex Rating: Stiff
    Stiff
    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.
