The Love Powder explains itself. This is the ladie's version of the famous Camel Toe. It is to be found in the steepest mountains in the deepest snow - sorry, ON the deepest snow, to be correct. Cause this directional surf-inspired board floats on powder like on clouds while its unique Pow 3BT makes carving at high speeds just as smooth as it can be.
The Love Powder is a dedicated powder board. Steep untouched lines, high speeds and nipple deep snow are its favourites. But this board is so awesome, you can even carve on-piste without getting in trouble.
A unique board needs a unique shape, and here's the Pow 3BT. The Love Powder has a directional shape with a tapered tail that forms kind of a swallowtail. Setback inserts provide additional surfy riding. The new SideKick Tips increase the edge uplift on the widest points of nose and tail for easier turn initiation, more float and better handling in rough terrain.
Pow 3BT has the narrowest centerbase in the range. The sidebases of the tip are uplifted much higher than those of the tail. The Mellow Camber allows plenty of edge hold and carving fun despite all that floatiness.
The Love Powder's flex is rather medium to soft. The unique and powerful Pow 3BT shape allows you to ride a powder board slightly softer than most of the comparable boards out there.
A poplar wood core is streaked with bamboo from tip to tail and sandwiched with bi-axial fiberglass. This means massive stability and fast manoeuvrability. The extruded Super Slick X base is very durable, fast and requires almost just minimal care.
You'll be interested to know that Bataleon has its roots in the Netherlands. Yes, you read that right - THE NETHERLANDS! They don't even have mountains there! Yet somehow, they have managed to create some of the best snowboards around. Their patented 3BT™ (Triple Base Technology) lets them produce boards with traditional camber AND lifted contact points, giving you a smoother, faster and lighter ride. Who doesn't want that?
