Sacrifice nothing with the Bataleon
Whatever Snowboard. A poplar wood makes up the Core Core giving the board pop, responsiveness and stability at higher speeds and the Freestyle TBT gives this board incredible versatility on the mountain so you can take on the park, powder, and groomers all with the same board. The nose of the board is slightly larger than the tail to give this board extra powder performance, however, it still loves to ride switch. The Bataleon
Whatever Snowboard is ready to take down any mountain.
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: 4 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - A light medium flex, great for all terrain shredding while excelling in the park.
Freestyle TBT - The 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 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.
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).
Stacked Pack - The 4x2 / 22 pattern offers maximum precision in your binding position with 22 inserts for a large total stance width range.
