Bataleon Riot Snowboard 2014

The Bataleon Riot Snowboard is the most tech of Bataleon's true twins: more poppy than an opium farm in Southeast Asia! A Core Core keeps the board super stable, making it more than capable of sticking even the fastest and sketchiest landings. Featuring TWIN TBT and a mid-stiff flex, the Riot also includes Kevlar stringers in the nose and tail sections that run parallel to the edges. These reinforce the nose and tail areas to further enhance your pop with ‘volcanic explosiveness’. The Riot is the twin you need for balls-to-the-wall riding or if you are large enough to need a stiffer ride! As well as being good for huge kickers, massive drops and enormous backcountry jumps, it is great for terminal velocity trails and powder riding for even the biggest men. If you need to keep smiling when things get serious then go for a RIOT.
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
Flex Rating: 6 - A medium-stiff all-mountain flex designed to give you power and response through pow and unmarked groomers.
Shape
Twin TBT - Twin TBT is great for park riding. The center base section now features a traditional camber (Smoothly curving) rather than trapezoidal camber profile, but TWIN TBT retains a large enough flat base width for easy presses and rail slides. These boards feature longer contact lengths between the feet than JIB or PARK for more stability at speed! Twin TBT is a half-way between the TBT's specialized for riding rails and kickers.
 
Twin - Completely symmetrical geometries and flex from tip to tail
Core
Core Core - Poplar core with hardwood reinforcements along the insert rows. This increases the board's core strength and channels stored energy to deliver more pop.
Laminates
Tri-Ax Laminate - Tri-ax laminates over and under the wood core include fiberglass layers aligned in three directions (two at 45 degrees to the edges and the extra one along the boards length). This generally increases the stiffness and stability of the board to deliver maximum precision in your riding.
Carbon Enhanced - Everyone knows carbon is the hot stuff right now. Super strong, super light and super dope. Carbon stringers under the wood cores in Bataleon boards save weight and work in extension to add strength, reinforce targeted sections and focus pop depending on their alignment to the fiberglass.
Kevlar Enhanced - Enhances the already crazy responsiveness.
Base
Die-cut Base - Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
Sintered Base - Fast! Great wax absorption and as hard as nails. These bases come with factory wax already infused. Top it off regularly to get the most out of the base.
Edges
Lightning Edge - Thinner lightning edges enable you to carve with more feeling and precision, and they weigh less.
Binding Compatibility
Party Pattern 4 x 2 - The 4 x 2 / 22 pattern offers maximum precision for your binding's position with 22 inserts for a large total stance width range.
 

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freeride, 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.
    Freeride
    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
    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: Camber
    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.
  • 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.
