Triple Base Technology™

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.

Features

Triple Base Technology™ is awesome. The lifted sidebase areas at the widest points of the board make a lot of sense. The boards turn smoother and faster and it helps when you are not completely clean on your landings.

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.

SuperTubes™ are hollow carbon core upgrades that are inserted into the core in 3 different configurations. The hollow carbon tubes greatly increase the woodcore’s pop and reduce weight.

Materials & Construction

Our traditional and time tested two-way weave of fiberglass is light, strong and responsive; keeping the board snappy without adding torsional stiffness.

Our 50-50 Swiss paulownia and poplar woods blend for optimal strength to weight properties.

Dual Super Tube. Hollow carbon core upgrades that are inserted into the core. The hollow carbon tubes greatly increase the woodcore’s pop and reduce weight.

Not a basic extruded base. It has the highest molecular content available for an extruded base. That means it’s super slick, durable and maintenance-free.

We use tried and trusted ABS sidewalls for most of the collection. For the best flex to strength ratio.

SO. Much. Fun.

Just getting back into snowboarding after a loooongg hiatus, and MAN is this board the ticket for having simple, clean fun. I was borrowing/renting until trying one of the Fun.Kinks, and I don't think I'll ever go back.
It really is so damn fun, you can just butter to your heart's content without ever really worrying about catching an edge. This one is paired with some Jones mercury skatetech bindings and it carves better than any board I remember riding back in my youth. Thanks for making snowboarding fun again, Bataleon!

*****Sorry for the wrong spelling of Fun.kink ;) please edit. ***** Fun.kink brought my buttering progress to a new level! I am riding all mountain for over 20 years. (One week per year on average) I wanted to improve my buttering so I bought an also great Voelkl Xbreed (hybrid) last year and I was making good progress during one week on the mountains. Now I spent a single day on my new Fun.kink and my progress was better than in one week on the hybrid (at least 7:1 for 3BT ;)). It would have been a lot of pain from catching edges to make the same progress without 3BT! What I need to get used to is that as soon as I get on one of the edges, the turn radius is pretty small. This made my switch riding a bit worse in the beginning and made it a bit more difficult to make small corrections on cat tracks. Anyway this is a trade-off I am willing to accept and I'm sure that this is just an exercise thing. 3BT=Faster progress!!! I love it!

Just back from a week in Serre Chevaliere, where i had to hire a board due to carriage restrictions on a last minute flight deal. hired a Battalion Fun Kink through a local shop. Have been riding for over 20 years and normally ride a Burton Dragon and Libtech Pacifier. Took the 162 W for the week and was blown away with the capability of this board. Offpiste was hard, so didnt get a chance to try it, but handled the packed onpiste with ease. really liked the triple base tech. Felt really solid at speed and playfull, but was surprisingly competent once the piste hardened up towards the end of the week. will definitively be checking out your boards when i come to retiring my old boards.
