Is the Whatever snowboard good for whatever? Do beginners like fun boxes? You can bet your life savings that the Bataleon Whatever Snowboard is going to slay every time you head to the hill. It's Freestyle 3BT opens up all-mountain shredding with an aggressive camber balanced out by rail-to-rail rocker. No more edge catches but loads of control! A Kevlar Fleece lays the board up with armor against park abuse and it's medium flex blends freestyle and all-mountain shredding seamlessly. Clicked into the Bataleon Whatever Snowboard, you might be riding way better than what's good for you - but it's whatever.
Freestyle 3BT Bataleon's all mountain freestyle shapes are the most versatile boards in the line. Their twin-ish shapes, more aggressive camber profile, medium center-base width and longer contact length between the feet produce a powerful ride with freestyle tendencies and powder float.
Flex Rating: 4 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) This is a medium flex board hitting a balance between freestyle play and forgiveness with control, response and support for harder riding. Great for all-mountain riders who want to do it all!
Core Core Dual density full wood core composed of poplar with beech running tip to tail along the insert packs. The added beech hardwood strengthens the board's backbone under the bindings and produces more pop from tip to tail while still offering a comfortable lateral flex.
Bi Ax Laminate Bataleon bi-axial or two-way fiberglass is a 90-degree weave of fiberglass placed under and atop the core to strengthen and add pop to the board. Fiberglass is placed at a 45-degree angle rather than a 90-degree angle to the edge so you get better overall board feel, flex and edging. Bi-ax layups create a really maneuverable board, one that you can almost steer with your feet.
Kevlar Fleece Used with the same purpose as the composite fleece, but Kevlar is lighter, stronger and even more powerful with energy transfer underfoot and edge to edge. Increases board strength and power transfer.
Extruded Base Not your cheap, run-of-the-mill extruded base. Bataleon gets the highest quality extruded base money can buy with the highest molecular content. Their extruded bases are durable, fast, simple to repair and require little to no waxing to keep them gliding. They finish it with a proper hot wax before they leave the factory.
Die-Cut Base Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.

Comments about Bataleon Whatever Snowboard 2016:
This is a great all mountain board. The camber under your feet gives you a ton of pop and edge hold. This board will bring your jumps and jibs up a level.
