Bataleon Snowboards 2011-2012
17 Feb, 2011
When you think of TBT, only one company comes to mind for standing out from the crowd and doing a shape that works. Bataleon Snowboards patented TBT in 1998 and the concept has fully developed into a brand defined by the movement in a range of boards with variations for different riders. And if you don’t believe them, they just tell you to try one because all it takes is one TBT board to get you to see the TBT way of riding.
TBT is flat between the bindings with angled side bases that are lifted with gradually increasing angles. The uplift starts from flat in the binding area to a maximum increase at the widest point in the board. TBT comes in many options: jib, twin, freestyle, all mountain and freeride.
New for 11-12, Bataleon changed their nose and tail shapes with updated nose and tail ramps to a longer smoother uplift curve, the TBT has been taken further out all the way through the tip and tail bends to the ends of the board, all boards now have an extra kick or increased TBT after the effective edge giving a looser feeling board with more pow floating qualities without sacrificing edge hold.
Unmatched directional carving and floating abilities, the omni does it all and all well plus has extra backseat inserts for those deep powder days. Freeride TBT, directional shape, directional flex, party pattern, reactor core, sintered base, lightning edge, triax laminate, flex=5-6-6
