Snowboard

Bataleon The Carver Snowboard 2020

Using all the advantages of the Freeride 3BT™, the Bataleon The Carver Snowboard is a wider than average board with a knack for nailing down some sweet toe and heelside turns. It's made with a SideKick™ profile which brings the tips up and widens it for extra float on pow. With a middle of the road flex rating and a lightweight paulownia core, the Carver works as an all-mountain ripper as well as a shredder of the pow.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Dynamic Camber

Freeride 3BT™ with SideKick™3rd generation Freeride 3BT™ has the added benefit of SideKick. The directional shape has a narrow centerbase with more sidebase uplift area and angle in the nose than in the tail. The tapered shape, sidecut and setback stance are optimized for backseat steering, high-speed traction, and maximum powder float, and the narrow centerbase generates swift edge-to-edge transfer and quick powerful carves.

Flex

Flex Rating6 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Shape

Directional Tapered Outline

SideKick™SideKick™ dramatically increases the sidebase uplift just outside the widest points of the nose and tail. This makes turn initiation smoother, increases float in powder and improves handling of the board in rough terrain.

Sidebase UpliftMedium Tip Uplift / Low Tail Uplift

Core

Reactor LightA blend of Swiss paulownia and poplar woods with bamboo along the rails from tip to tail. The bamboo strengthens the board's sidewalls and edges against impacts while distributing smoother and stronger edge hold.

Laminates

Triax LaminateThree-way weave of fiberglass is light, strong, and responsive. Bataleon uses this to beef up the flex pattern.

Carbon StringersCarbon is feather light and adds explosive pop, precise edge control, reactive response, and smooth dampening to a board. It is used in different ways to fine-tune a boards ride characteristics.

Base

Ultra Glide SMaximum molecular content for a hardened sintered base that hauls ass. More molecules mean a denser base that can take a beating using ISO-SPORT7000 series as backbone.
