Bataleon Snowboards 2012-2013

18 Jul, 2012


For Triple Base Technology, Bataleon leads the charge by standing out from the crowd and doing a shape that works for a range of riders. TBT is flat between the bindings with angled side bases that are lifted with gradually increasing angles. TBT comes in many options with jib, twin, freestyle, all mountain and freeride.

New for 2013, Bataleon presents a new signature Disaster Gulli pro model for team rider Gulli Gudmundsson, the new Global Warmer high end jib/park board, a new TBT powder board called the Camel Toe and Bataleon outerwear (not pictured).

Bataleon Riot

Bataleon G.W.

The G.W. aka Global Warmer is not a “green” board. It even has added carbon which is bad for nature but sure increases your pop. Is taking a fractional amount of sustainable materials and sandwiching it between plastic with a pot of glue really green though?

Sizes: 148, 151, 154, 156W, 157

Bataleon Distortia (Women’s)

The eve to our evil twin. True twin shape with Twin TBT and a soft flex. A real park destroyer. There is nothing ‘girlie’ about this board. Except maybe the slightly narrower outline to better fit smaller feet. Features Twin TBT, 20 precise pattern, core core, bi ax laminate, extruded base, lightning edge, twin outline and contact shape, stiffness: 3-4-3.

Sizes: 143, 146, 149, 152

    Hi Shay,

    Before winter ends…you just got to try the Camel Toe…just been riding mine in Chamonix for two weeks of solid joy. The board is light, fast in response…and floats like a dream…seriously it has to be one of the best powder boards around…beats the Hovercraft and Never Summer Summit for fun in the POW.

    Keep up the great site…

    Karl…

    PS TBT is the future.
