The board of choice for beginners and seasoned shredders alike. With a soft poppy flex, slightly set back stance and of course Bataleon’s renowned Triple Base Technology the Fun Kink makes park snowboarding accesible to all.

Manufacturer's Description:

The FUN.KINK is how it sounds, a fun board to jib around with a good flex to boardslide kinks. This board is perfect for urban jibbing, cruisin’ parks and serious fun all over the hill. We blessed it with a 4x4 extra-wide insert pattern to enable a healthy wide stance. The base just glows in the snow sending of flashes when you unleash the Power Pop that comes preloaded with our proved and pat¬ented Triple Base Tech. ‘Nuff said now take this board out and have FUN! Yeah for it!

I’m 179cm tall, weigh around 65-70kg and bought the fun.kink 153 at the start of last season. Alltogether i probably had around 20 days of riding on it, and i had ridiculous amounts of fun. The board is light, has great pop and generally is really playful. presses were doable but at my weight it was difficult to press high enough to be impressive without losing my balance/control of the tail to keep it slipping out. Carving was a dream even though i hadn’t expected it, and generally it performed really great in all conditions but deep snow. The nose scoop is a little shallow so you really have to try to keep it from sinking, despite the setback. Another negative about the shallow nose was that at the lifts it made it much more susceptible to over-eager skiers’ edges, so i got quite a number of nicks quite quickly. On the second last day of the season the board cracked, and i’m not sure how. While i was staring at it in awe once i discovered it a random girl came up to me and mentioned her friends’ fun.kink cracked at the exact same spot, leading me to believe the manufacturing quality isn’t extraordinarily good. All in all though this board is named correctly, it’s loads and loads of fun and really playful. I improved more with this board than any board previously, and learned quite a few new tricks on it.
