Construction

Bataleon snowboards are built using the best available materials. Drawing on years of research and development, we select the right components for each model and tailor the construction to its desired riding characteristics.

Base Tech

The base is super important because it’s your direct connection to the snow. We choose from four different types of extruded and sintered bases, each of which has its own advantages. Every board is finished with a factory wax before it reaches the shelves.

Nano High Speed S

The fastest base money can buy, produced using race-grade ISO-SPORT 7000 P-tex. This is the same shit spandex-clad dudes have on their ski boards. No joke.

Ultra Glide S

A premium, 7000-grade sintered base reserved for our high-end models. Packing more molecules into the P-tex means it’s super tough and hauls ass.

Hyper Glide S

Our standard sintered base that’s durable and fast – and even faster when waxed.

snowboard superslick base tech

Super Slick X

An extruded base with a difference. It boasts the highest molecular content of any extruded P-tex on the market, meaning it’s consistently quick regardless of how often you wax.

Flip Flop

Die-cut bases are like a jigsaw. Flip Flop minimises waste by using two or more color options for each piece. That means more unique graphics and less environmental harm.

Glassing

Boards are built with a layer of fiberglass above and below the woodcore. The type we use and the way it’s placed has a huge influence on flex, which in turn affects how the board will feel to ride.

snowboard triax technology

Triax

Our three-way fibreglass weave is light, strong and crazy responsive. We use this to beef up the flex pattern on our more aggressive boards.

snowboard biax technology

Biax

A traditional two-way weave that is light, strong and playful; it keeps the board snappy without adding torsional stiffness, which is great for getting creative.

Woodcore

The core is the soul of any snowboard. We source a number of high quality woods to build ours. The type of timber, the grain orientation and the way we fine-tune the thickness from tip to tail will greatly determine your new board’s character.

super ultra light snowboard technology

SuperUltraLight Core

Our lightest core features an 80/20 blend of Swiss paulownia and poplar for the ultimate in featherweight response.

UltraLight Core

A 70/30 Swiss paulownia and poplar blend that offers awesome strength to weight.

triax 3bt snowboard technology

Light Core

50/50 Swiss paulownia and poplar creates a balanced core that’s lively yet strong.

Sidewall

Sidewalls protect the core so they need to be tough, but not so rigid that they disrupt our carefully designed flex patterns. We use two versions.

ABS Walls

Tried and trusted, ABS sidewalls are super durable – which is why they’ve been the industry standard for decades.

Carbon Layups

Carbon is feather light and offers explosive pop, lightning edge response and supreme dampening at high speeds. Using strips of carbon fiber within the board’s construction we can dial in the flex and add an extra layer of awesomeness to your ride.
