Pow

What’s this board’s natural home? Full send in the park? Elbows down on the trails? Or chucking roosters somewhere off grid?

Flex

4.0

SoftStiff

Softer snowboards are easier to press and won’t kick your ass if you make a mistake. Stiffer decks are more stable at speed and super responsive edge-to-edge. Choose your poison.

Float

57

10100

Min. FloatMax. Float

Maximum volume for surfy vibes in the pow, or a smaller surface area for nimble freestyle performance. This number is calculated with length, width, 3D shape and surface distribution.

Outline Shape

Directional Twin

Boards that need to excel both on the slopes and out of bounds are shaped with evenly proportioned center and side bases and a medium uplift striking the optimal balance for freestyle and freeriding.

Camber Profile

Medium Camber

Camber profiles are defined from low to high. Higher camber make for more dynamic boards that need to be ridden more aggressively to get maximum performance. Lower camber boards are smoother on lower speeds and in powder. All camber profiles run from nose to tail. higher is not always better...

3D Shape

3BT™ + Sidekick™

Combining the responsiveness of traditional tip-to-tail camber with the dynamic shaping properties of Triple Base Technology and the performance boosting Sidekick feature makes for a 3D snowboarding experience like no other.

Nose Sidebase Uplift

Medium

The gradual side base uplift in the nose determines how the board will behave on snow. most effected are the edge to edge performance and the uplift generated when riding powder.

Tail Sidebase Uplift

Medium

The gradual side base uplift in the tail determines how the board will behave on snow. Any amount of uplift brings all the benefits of Triple Base Technology making opur boards more versatile then others.

Glassing

Bi-Ax Lamination

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

Core Core

Full poplar with hardwood beech stringers to strengthen the boards backbone, reinforce the inserts and increase pop.

Base

Hyper Glide S

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

Sidewalls

Shock Walls

This is our Urethane infused sidewall technology. ShockWalls smooth out your ride and are more resistant to impact.

Tech

D.S.T. SuperTubes

Dual Super Tubes, a Super Tube on either side of the board enhances pop and gives the camber more snap.

At the heart of every Bataleon is a combination of 3BT™ and positive camber. It’s an innovative solution to the profile puzzle that minimizes the potential for edge-catch without sacrificing ollie power or carving performance. From this starting point, we fine-tune each element according to the boards desired riding style.

SideKick™ builds on the concept of Triple Base by increasing the sidebase uplift just outside the widest points of the nose and tail. The tips become more like a hull, boosting float in deep snow and slicing through crud. It also helps the board to roll quickly and evenly from edge to edge.

Supertubes™ are hollow carbon cylinders that are inserted directly into the core. They reinforce the camber, reduce weight and greatly increase pop. By varying their location we can fine-tune the board’s performance further.

Fun.kink

I bought my first Bataleon being super curious about 3bt tech and the overall shape of the board. In my Snowboard group in Portugal we have more than a few CAPiTA die hard fans (rightfully so) and most of them were somewhat suspicious about Bataleon and 3bt, none of them had ever seen anything related to Bataleon. I can honestly say I am more than happy to have made my research and about my decision to try something different and new, to give a brand that was until then unknown to me as well, a chance. The board feels super light and flexible without being mushy (it has some pop and is easy to load) it responds quickly and it's more than capable in light carving. If there's something I would point out is that the top coat feels a bit too soft and prone to damage, I mean, who doesn't hate the feeling of those first dings showing up on your new board?

In any case, it won't be my last Bataleon board, and probably not the only one in my group.

Fun.Kink Absolutely Shreds!

Just got the new Fun.Kink as my first new board in 20+ years (previously rode Burton Shaun White) and the thing absolutely blew me away. I figured there would be some kind of adjustment period as I’ve never ridden a non-traditional shaped board before…. Nope!! It instantly felt like the best riding snowboard I’ve ever experienced, has a nice amount of flex and pop, and handled all of the super fast strait bombing runs I could throw at it. Never caught an edge…. Love the new technology

Great board!

Great board! I love the mid flex and the graphic is sick as f#%k! It’s my first new board in 20 years and I’m glad I made the choice to pick one up.

Fun.Kink definitely fun!

The fun.kink was the perfect board for me (just getting back into boarding after 12 years). It’s so soft but has just enough stability to get you through those icy patches.
