Product Info

When life gives you lemons, let the Bataleon Distortia Snowboard distort your reality and turn those lemons into pink lemonade. Designed to meet the needs of females with a freestyle focus, the Distortia has a medium flex and playful, catch-free Twin 3BT profile that makes for easy butters and progression-friendly landings -- that means you can start throwing that backside 3 without worry of snagging an edge - who's not down with that?

Product Details

Rocker Type

Twin 3BTThis twin 3BT flavor comes with a wide centerbase and base uplift that beings at the binding edge. The base uplift angle is mellow and offers a relaxed jib feel. The wide centerbase aids stability on takeoffs, landings, and in presses. Designed for terrain parks and overall freestyle riding.

Mellow Camber

Flex

4(1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Shape

Twin Shape

Sidebase UpliftTip: Medium Uplift | Tail: Medium Uplift

Core

Core CoreFull poplar with beech hardwood laid tip to tail along the inserts to enhance the board's jib, jump and freestyle riding attributes. The added beech hardwood strengthens the board's backbone and puts out potent pop while still offering a comfortable lateral flex.

Laminates

BiAxBataleon's traditional and time-tested two-way weave of fiberglass, made light, strong and responsive.

Basalt StringersBasalt is explosive rock power from the earth's core. Like carbon and Kevlar, basalt is strong, light, snappy and more affordable.

Sidewalls

Solid WallsThe go-to material for flex, weight savings, and durability along the edge.

Base

Super Slick XNot a basic extruded base. It has the highest molecular content available for an extruded base. That mean's it's super slick, durable and maintenance-free.

Topsheet

PLT TopsheetThis finishing method means applying the topsheet after the board is pressed. This gives the board an ultra-slick finished look, and because the topsheet is pre-pressed it allows Bataleon to fine-tune the board's final flex pattern.

2 x 4 Inserts

      Comments about Bataleon Distortia Snowboard - Women's 2017:

      Got this board last week 'cause my old one had pretty much died. Tried it out on a powder day and got down the mountain so well that I decided I had to just buy it. My previous board was a rocker and I felt like building pressure on my edges in turns is much easier with this one. Carving's great too. On high speeds the front starts "shaking" a little bit (like when the nose of your board isnt perfectly still anymore, don't really know how to explain) but the stability is pretty decent. For slopestyle it's fun, I'm way less scared to catch an edge when doing tricks (it can still happen though, but rarely).
      On icy terrain it seems a bit harder due to the triple base, but if you really put it on it's edge its perfectly grippy and gets you down pretty much any slope. So you just need to get into your turn a bit more compared to other boards to get the same grip but that actually gets you to ride more sportly and carve your turns a bit more.
      All in all, superhappy right now, this board gives me back so much and allows me to do anything I want. Freestyling is easy, you can ride it down the mountain in a supersportly manner and the twin shape gets it even more versatile. The camber gives it of fire and pop and the flex makes it a very versatile board.

      So yeah, I'm superhappy still and I am pretty confident that I'm going to progress so much on this board still as it caters to my every need!

          My boyfriend got me this board for my birthday. I've been wanting to try this out. The board looks very well made. It's light and neat. Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to test it out on the snow. Well update this once I have it tested out.
