Expect to see the Disaster’s distinctive Dollar graphics a lot next season, this board is going to sell like hot cakes with 50 dollar bills hidden within the tasty exterior. Jib specific TBT is new to the Bataleon line this season and maximises board on rail contact without compromising on the Bataleon catch-free feel. Bataleon’s Combat wood composite core is lively but damp making the Disaster a great board for urban rail rippers.

The Bataleon Omni is the kind brother of the black hearted Undisputed. It has the same slender directional shape and large sidecut radius for smooth stable carves and the Reactor Core and Triaxial fibreglass for grip, it also has the same sintered base and Freeride Triple Base Tech. Actually the only thing it’s missing are the Carbon stringers which run along the edge of the Undsiputed making the Omni a little less effort to tame.

A wise website once said “Keep your friends close but keep you Enemy+++ closer” . For true high spec Rolls-Royce performance with the feel of Triple Base Technology underfoot the Enemy+++ is the Bataleon snowboard that fits the bill.

In the infamous words of Technotronic: “Pump up the Jam, pump it up, while your feet are stompin’ and the Jam is pumpin’, look at here the crowd is jumpin’”. Was ever a truer pop song written about the more “pumped up” brother of the Goliath? With its All-Mountain TBT and Basalt stringers your feet will be “stompin” every jump, drop and transfer you can take the Bataleon Jam off.

The Bataleon Goliath is a giant in the world of all-mountain snowboards, don’t let its twin shape and Freestyle Triple Base Tech convince you otherwise. With Triaxial glass, a medium flex and Bataleon’s hardwood reinforced Core core the Goliath is designed to straight line double blacks and boost of rollers as much as it is designed to launch off transitions.

Lets not beat around the bush, the Feelbetter might be a new addition to the Bataleon range but we’ve seen it all before. It might be prettier and slightly narrower than its ancestor but the Feelbetter is essentially the Fun.Kink for women.

You like the shape of the Evil twin and Triple Base Tech is the business too, but it just doesn’t have the pop or stability you need for going huge. Well Bataleon has got your back; the Riot is made for people with exactly your predicament. It’s essentially the same snowboard as the Evil Twin but they stuck a shed load of Basalt reinforcement in the nose and tail for uber pop but kept the waist Basalt free so the Riot is still manageable and easy enough to ollie.

The Bataleon Evil Twin Artist Edition has graphics that are certain to upset the slightly more conservative locals on your ski hill… nope I can’t think of a downside either.

The celebrated original Evil Twin had such a fan club that Bataleon thought why change it? So they haven’t, the Evil Twin Classic retains the same geometry and TBT profile it’s always had, because you demand it!

All the performance Evil Twin fans have become used to and now expect, but this year this slopestyle performer gets the new TBT tips to give it a smoother feel in sketchy snow conditions and more butteryness on groomed pistes.

Whereas the Disaster is built to take progressive snowboarding to the streets the Airobic is designed to be a better fit for the more rounded park and rail rider. The Airobic still has the extruded base, Combat core, biaxial glass laminates and Jib TBT of the Disaster in fact there’s very little to split the boards apart, the Airobic is just a little stiffer and the sidecut is a touch less tight.

If you are the kind of rider that takes a look at an impossibly steep line, hikes it and then bombs the lot in three turns the Undisputed is the snowboard for you. Its long directional shape is stable at mind bending speeds and the narrow flat area of the Freeride TBT base makes switching from edge-to-edge faster than the blink of an eye. Carbon keeps the board snappy out of turns and the Reactor core with its hardwood edges deals well with sketchy conditions when unconditional edge hold is essential.

The Bataleon Goliath isn’t the fastest board edge-to-edge, but Bataleon’s Triple Base Technology makes the Goliath an incredibly stable and catch free platform to launch big kicker tricks from. No need to worry about catching your toes or heels on big icy jumps TBT keeps your edges free from harm and makes off centre landings far more forgiving than your usual cambered all mountain freestyle snowboard. In its element when ridden on kickers where that camber pop pays dividends.

Like the Pole Tax riots of 1990, the Bataleon Riot want’s to smash everything in sight. Huge booters, halfpipe and hips, you name it the Riot will destroy it. A stiff flexing snowboard macho-man designed for aggressive riders who don’t want to faff around in the mini shred, the adrenaline is pumping and they’re on their way to the pro-line jumps.

Snowboard-Review.com has been a big fan of the Bataleon Evil twin for the last couple of years. It makes freestyle snowboarding so much easier and the Triple Base technology makes takeoffs catch free and landings forgiving. For the 2011 season Bataleon have completely redesigned the shape of the Evil Twin, but we’ll be damned if we can feel the difference. A classic snowboard that smashes the park, but don’t expect much difference from previous years,

A suprising little number… well big number actually. Freeride Triple Base Technology sets the Bataleon Undisputed apart from every other cambered Freeride gun on the planet. The Undisputed is stiff enough longitudinally to ride out the most gnarly early morning death cookies. Then there’s the quadraxial glass to keep your edge locked in even when the snow turns sheet ice. Finally, the Freeride TBT makes snowboarding catch free even at frightening speeds and incredibly agile edge-to-edge for such a long and firm flexing snowboard. A snowboard you want in your quiver!

At last the board that people have been asking for has arrived… we’ll kind of.

Take the Bataleon Omni, purge its soul from all materials that have nasty chemicals in them, make the base and sidewalls from recycled PTex and wax it with Soy, the same stuff no Chinese cuisine would be complete without and you’ve got Bataleon’s all new echo warrior the aptly named Project Green.

A toned down version of the ferocious Undisputed. The Bataleon Omni is a freeride snowboard designed for intermediate snowboarders who want to shred powder and groomers and throw the odd trick into the mix or for Advanced riders who like the idea of Triple Base Tech but don’t want to ride with the aggressive style and pure concentration that the Undisputed demands.

Take the Bataleon Guerilla’s shape and fill it with gnarly materials like Quadraxial glass and Carbon and Kevlar reinforcement and you have The Jam, a snowboard designed to be ridden at ridiculous speeds by aggressive all-mountain freestylers. A nice take on fellow Dutchy Piet Mondrian’s famous compositions on the graphic.

Bataleon claim the Distortia is both the Ying and Yang of freestyle snowboarding, that it is both aggressive and forgiving.

Those crazy Dutch guys at Bataleon are at it again. Back in 1997 not content with flat bases they introduced the Triple Base Technology, over the last couple of years Bataleon have developed a number of TBT varieties. The Airobic has Bataleon’s Twin TBT which uses the widest flat section at the nose and tail, prfect if you want to avoid slipping out on those single bar nose presses. The Airobic also has Bataleon’s softest flex, perfect for tearing up the mini shred and urban kink sessions.

Carbon and Kevlar reinforced glass, titanium rubber sidewalls and a Nano Hai Lite Speed base, the Bataleon Enemy is the future of snowboard technology today.
