Ride The Future

We stand behind our unique and patented 3D shapes. Ever dedicated to producing a better snowboard, we have updated and perfected Triple Base Technology™ over the past 17 years. We now have the most experience in 3D snowboard shaping and we offer the widest range of 3D shaped boards.

Your next snowboard should have Triple Base.

The Idea

Created by nature or designed by man, the most successful designs take into consideration the forces they will be submitted to. When we were developing 3BT™ we analyzed how snowboards look when put under pressure. What happens when you drive it through a transition or jam it through a turn? Triple Base happens. Triple Base is the pre-shaped form of a board in motion, and just like the wings of a plane or the hull of a boat is curved to perform, your snowboard should also be shaped for its environment.

The Shape

Through lots of research, analyzing, tinkering, and testing, we came up with our patented 3BT™ shaping technique. All our boards feature tip to tail positive camber in combination with lifted contact points at the widest part of the board. Over the years we perfected 3BT™ to best perform for every kind of riding by fine tuning the synergies between the flat base, side bases, radii and camber.

Flat Base Riding

The widest section of the board is lifted off the snow while riding flat based allowing you to ride straight without catching edges or needing to keep your edges engaged.

Turn Initiation

With a small amount of pressure and angle, the sidebases start to engage near the bindings, but the pressure remains constant along the contact edge.

While on edge, the 3D shaped sidecut forms a complete arc with the snow, offering unparalleled and powerful edge hold.

3BT™ Flavors

3BT™ is not a single shape, it’s a shaping philosophy. Every board in the range is perfected and fine-tuned to fit specific riding characteristics. Each board is shaped with a unique three-dimensional Triple Base Profile so it rides better than other boards in its category.

Optimized for Park riding, the centerbase on Jib 3BT™ is the widest in the range to give you extra stability while jibbing and pressing.

These boards are shaped with a wide centerbase area. The uplift angle is low and begins outside the bindings for precision control with less hang-ups. The wide centerbase offers a stable platform to press, load up ollies and put down landings.

The sidebase and centercase areas are equally proportionate in size with a medium uplift angle on Freestyle 3BT™. With added length in the nose, these boards are remarkably versatile for freestyle and freeride situations.

Freeride 3BT has a narrow centerbase and substantial sidebase uplift. The focus here is on edge control and versatility. These shapes have proven to be functional and competent in all conditions. Floating better than other brand’s powder specific boards yet holding an unbelievable edge while carving on slopes.

Pow 3BT™ features a narrow centerbase and maximum uplift with SideKick™ in the nose. The emphasis in this shape is on floating. The oversized nose assures unrivaled float and stability in rough conditions. When it gets deep there is nothing that beats it. Make no mistake these boards hold there own on hardpack as well.

Advantages

We know. It sounds too good to be true but that is because Triple Base makes perfect sense. Shaping a board 3D makes every kind of snowboarding more fun.

Edges create friction, retain heat and don’t hold wax—all of which slow you down. 3BT™ boards accelerate faster and maintain speed when pointed straight because the lifted sidebases have a shorter overall edge contact and reduce drag. This helps you coast along cat tracks faster, clear jumps and pass skiers on powder days.

The uplifted edges at the contact points reduces the chance of edge catch. The sidebase lift at the contact points disperses pressure evenly along the edge, therefore allowing for a smoother, more controlled ride. This also makes the tips more forgiving for butters and more lenient on less-than-perfect landings.

When laid on edge, the uplifted edge and base sections form a more cohesive arc and contact with the snow surface. A smooth and secure arc means more powerful turns. As the board is rolled side to side, the edge uplift offers a more fluid transition from edge to edge. This makes slower turns easier, faster turns more solid, and carving full circles on corduroy more complete.

The 3BT™ tips and contact points are less likely to dig and catch on landings. Reduced edge bite at the tips allows the board to automatically track back to going straight, meaning you can ride away from not-so-perfect landings.

The shaped tips boost the pop power of positive camber. When the tail (or nose) is flexed and compressed for an ollie the forces are directed towards the centerbase of the tail (or nose) and amplified. This gives added spring to the board’s powerful camber backbone.

The hull-like tip shape has inherent floating, planing and plowing properties similar to a boat or progressive surfboard shape. The shape allows the front to rise out of soft snow, and while making it easier to sink the tail, offering a more comfortable riding position in deep snow.

The beveled tips have less drag and generate a smoother glide up and down transitions while still maintaining control. This means faster, smoother and more predictable takeoffs and landings.

3BT™ shaping gives every board universal benefits. The hull-like shape of a jib board will still float better than a flat one in pow. All our boards profit from the increased edge hold of uplifted edges.

Features

There is more to Bataleon snowboards than Triple Base Technology. Here is some more unique Bataleon trademark technology.

AirRide™

The AirRide™ core additive dampens vibrations and makes riding smoother at high speeds. It’s like having a suspension system in your snowboard.

Decrease chatter increase speed.

SideKick™

SideKick™ Tips enhance 3BT™’s advantages like nothing you experienced before. SideKick™ dramatically increases the sidebase uplift at the widest points of the nose and tail. This makes turn initiation even smoother, increases float in powder and handling of the board in rough terrain. It has to be ridden to be believed!

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.

Materials and Construction

Bataleon Snowboards are made with using only the best materials available. But having the best materials is not everything what is maybe even more important is to choose the right combination of materials for the right type of board. Something that can only be learned and perfected over years of R&D.

Maintenance & Tuning

3BT™ boards can be waxed and scraped like any other snowboard. When it comes to heavier work like base grinding, we recommended it be done by a knowledgeable tech on a machine with 3 separate rollers. Although the base has uplift, there are actually 3 flat sections so they can be ground evenly.
