Bataleon Riot - 2012

http://www.snowboard-review.com/images/brands/bataleon/logo/bataleon_logo.gif

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.

Manufacturer's Description:

Applaud yourself because your money and support made the R&D on this board possible. This is our most tech true twin. Everything from the core to the glass to the base is hot shit. Basalt stringer enforced tips and tail amplify the already preloaded crazy pop in the TBT nose and tail. Perfect for the big kicker line and super stable when you Chinese downhill a double black diamond ...switch! Bataleon is not buying Porsches but putting it back into better board tech!
