The only thing girly about the Bataleon
Distortia Snowboard is a narrower outline and a women's specific TBT profile to match. Those aside, the Distortia is the cool rail-slaying sister of the men's Evil Twin board. Complete with an Extruded Base, a Pop Core, and Bi-Ax Laminate, this board is jam-packed with the works for an amazing ride that'll last. This board is flex-y enough for styled grinds while still giving support for hitting the jumps and it rides great on the groomers too. Look no further than the Bataleon
Distortia Snowboard to up your game this season.
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 Rating: 3 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - A light medium flex, great for all terrain shredding while excelling in the park.
Park TBT - Park TBT is great for park riding and jibbing, with flat center base widths and lengths in between JIB and TWIN TBTs. It retains the trapezoidal profile of the JIB TBT boards for legit presses but adopts a slightly narrower flat base section. This allows PARK TBT to retain many of the jib specific benefits on boards that are usually slightly stiffer with longer contact length between the feet. Hence, these boards are more stable at high speeds. The TBT remains symmetrical on the nose and tail for the same ride switch as forward.
Pop Core - Snappy, flexible poplar wood that gives it a soft flex without sacrificing strength.
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.
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).
Precise Pattern - The 4x2 / 20 pattern allows you to attach your bindings with scientific precision.
