Product Info

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.

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: 3 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)A light medium flex, great for all terrain shredding while excelling in the park.

Shape

Park TBTPark 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.

Core

Pop CoreSnappy, flexible poplar wood that gives it a soft flex without sacrificing strength.

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).

Binding Compatibility

Precise PatternThe 4x2 / 20 pattern allows you to attach your bindings with scientific precision.

    This board will take your riding to the next level! Im not much of a park rider but feel confident enough on this board to try everything out! Great in all conditions and simply won't allow you to catch an edge which means more speed! Love love love!

      The triple base technology gives me so much more confidence because I don't feel like I am going to catch an edge as easy. I have had so much fun riding this snowboard.

      Comments about Bataleon Distortia Snowboard - Women's 2015:

      The only downfall to this snowboard is it's too big for me. My last snowboard was a 147, so I figured by getting a 146 this would be a bit smaller, instead it was a lot larger. I'm just worried about carrying it around.
