Product Info

The Bataleon Fun.Kink Snowboard is the president's limousine of the snowboard world. Meant to provide a stable and comfortable ride, the Fun.Kink is great for beginners and for any skillset that enjoys a controlled ride all over the mountain. The Freestyle TBT combines a medium wide centerbase flat section, making it fun on jibs and jumps, with medium width sidebases with a larger total uplift for agile turning, more forgiveness and greater powder float. A Pop Core adds snappiness for larger ollies. No matter what your skillset is, the Bataleon Fun.Kink Snowboard brings the party.

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

Freestyle TBTThe width of the two sidebases and the centerbase are equal. The equal section widths give a symmetrical edge-to-edge concave, which is combined with a now more aggressive traditional tip to tail camber profile on the centerbase section to perfectly balance park riding and general cruising. Boards with Freestyle TBT boast a longer contact length between the feet. Freestyle TBT is still symmetrical about the nose and tail to give the same performance when riding switch as forwards. A 'good-for-everything' shape, with fast and free edge-to-edge looseness and agility and overall stability.

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.
