Bataleon Distortia Snowboard - Women's 2014

The Bataleon Distortia Snowboard is the Eve to Batelon's Evil Twin. Besides the narrow waist to accommodate smaller feet, there is nothing 'girlie' about this board. The Distortia features a softer flex with the Twin PBT, making this a real park destroyer. Don't get carried away though, just because this board is designed for the park doesn't mean it can't ride anywhere else. Triple Base Technology allows you to ride the Distortia through any conditions, crud to pow, thanks to the division of the base in 3 parts. Crazy pop, true twin design and triple base technology makes the Distortia an easy choice for any female shredder.
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: 3 - An overall medium-soft flex, catered to freestyle riding. 3-4-3. Slightly stiffer waist versus the tip and tail. Great for pressing, sliding, and urban jibbing.
Shape
Twin - Completely symmetrical geometries and flex from tip to tail
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.
 
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
Bi-Ax Laminate - Bi-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 Base - Easy 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 Edge - Thinner lightning edges enable you to carve with more feeling and precision, and they weigh less.
Binding Compatibility
Precise Pattern 4 x 2 - The 4 x 2 / 20 pattern allows you to attach your bindings with scientific precision.
 

Specs

  • Terrain: Freestyle
    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: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • 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: Medium
    Medium
    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.
