It just works for any kind of condition and riding style. This board features a directional shape with a twin flex to keep you above the snow while allowing you to ride switch with ease. The Whatever features Bataleon s Freestyle TBT, giving it the versatility to handle parks and groomers with the same consistency. Whatever's clever, just ride it all.

Product Details

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: 4A versatile medium flex. Playful, forgiving, and responsive. Great for any situation and any level rider.

Shape

DirectionalDirectional shape with a twin symmetrical flex. Slightly longer nose than tail, but the portions of the base in contact with the snow are the same in both directions.

Freestyle TBTFreestyle TBT is the most 'all round' TBT shape in the range. Featuring a traditional camber profile on the center base section which possesses a medium / wide width to retain decent stability on presses and rails. There is now a longer contact length (still without TBT) between the feet to minimize twitchiness at high speed. Freestyle TBT is still symmetrical about the nose and tail for equal performance when riding switch as forward. A 'good for everything' shape with fast edge-to-edge freestyle looseness and great overall stability.

Core

Core CorePoplar core with hardwood reinforcements along the insert rows. This increases the board's core strength and channels stored energy to deliver more pop.

Laminates

Bi-Ax LaminateBi-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.

Base

Extruded BaseEasy 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).

Edges

Lightning EdgeThinner lightning edges enable you to carve with more feeling and precision, and they weigh less.

Binding Compatibility

Stacked Pack 4 x 2Stacked Pack 4 x 2 - The 4 x 2 / 22 patter offers maximum precision in your binding positions with 22 inserts for a large total stance width range.

    Comments about Bataleon Whatever Snowboard 2014:

    The whatever was the second snowboard i rode. I rode it in a dome, it was way easier to learn to snowboard because of the forgiveness. Because of the TBT i didn't catch as much snow as my first time snowboarding, therefore i fell down way less. I would recommend it to everybody but especially to beginners like me.

        Comments about Bataleon Whatever Snowboard 2014:

        This is a great all mountain board. Excellent stability when bombing hills, excellent pop when hitting kickers, and easy to maneuver through the trees.

        The one challenge is the TBT definitely makes it feel a little stiff compared to some of its peers, but just something to adjust for as you learn to ride a new board.
