As a lifelong Forum fanatic, I felt lost last season when my Spinster suddenly bit it (literally, on a wooden deck) and sent me scrambling to find something I loved as much. It took time, but like finding any strong partner, the wait was worth it. I bought the Distortia this season as my first Bataleon board ever and I love it. This board delivers. I ride mainly inbounds with some side country (my knees are a touch too well seasoned to be sending it off big jumps and features in the park anymore, though it’s insanely fun and poppy for messing around on natural features and buttering). I have ridden powder, groomers, and straight up icy chowder. The Distortia hangs with you through all of the above, and we haven’t even taken a run through the park yet. It is flexible but not noodly and turn initiation is a dream. This board makes carving super fun! It took a run or two to get used to the 3BT feel and shape, but it made ripping around through different conditions easy. I recommend it to anyone looking for a versatile all around fun board. From a purely aesthetic standpoint, the graphic on this board is beautiful and this is by far the most interesting/badass looking women’s board I have seen available for this season.
This is my 3rd board and my 3rd season. And I have done so much better. It is so forgiving and holds a egde so well. I love this board will definitely hang onto her for next year
Really nice, easy and forgiving ride. Perfect for beginner to intermediate or someone advanced who wants to have fun. Carves really nicely and easy to hold an edge.
This board is amazing. I came to this board from an Arbor Push and it made a huge difference in my riding. It's stable while going fast, and super easy to ride around in the park. Highly recommend the board. Regarding Battalion the company... I had to submit this board to Bataleon for warranty replacement, and within a week, I had a new board. No questions asked. Customer service was phenomenal. Bataleon, you have won yourself a lifetime client.
I’m riding a 146 2013 Distortia and I love it!! It is definitely a park board. It is my 2nd year riding park and it find that it rides very well (I’ve been riding mountain for 14 years) The edges don’t catch, it jumps well and it makes me feel confident to try new tricks and keep pushing myself. My previous board is a 2006 Salomon Ivy (rated a freestyle board (2 of 5) with a mid flex range (2.5 of 5)) and compared to that, this board feels soft between the bindings, but the pop in the tail is great once you get the hang of it. That goes for the TBT base too. The heel turns throw you off sometimes when riding mountain since you need to lean a bit more for the edge to catch. It also makes it kind of crappy on ice (I ride on the East coast). When this board meets ice, it stands no chance, so find myself breaking out my old Ivy for mountain riding. Icy days are no kind of fun. If there is a bit of snow left on the hill or the ice is a bit soft, it can perform though, but it’s sketchy. However this board is incredibly fun to ride otherwise. It is very playful and it just puts a smile on my face. I don’t find it a fast board. The softness makes it a bit unresponsive when riding mountain at speed and it chatters a bit. I find if performs much better on the mountain if you are scoping for fun features to jib off of and just fool around in general. Being on the East coast, I can’t say how it performs in powder. It rides switch beautifully. I’m glad for the different icons on the nose and tail because it helps me figure out which direction I usually ride as I get confused sometimes. Yes, the switch rides that well! I ride it with Rome Madison Boss bindings and 86FT ThirtyTwo boots and they pair beautifully with it. I have tried the board with my old Ride Ex bindings (also of the 2006 era and not women’s specific) and I find they are too stiff for the board. The board really loses some of its playfulness with the stiffer bindings. I would completely recommend this board to any girl who wants to ride park with some mountain in between.
