New for this season, the Bataleon Stallion is made for the big guys. It's extra wide for bigger feet, but thanks to the new SideKick Tips it can be ridden aggressively like a narrower board.
The Stallion can ride the whole mountain and towards the sunset. And on its way it takes on every kicker or powder run with ease.
A versatile board like the Stallion needs the Freestyle 3BT. The nose is 1 cm longer than the tail. This results in more float plus more grip. 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.
The centerbase of the Freestyle 3BT is a bit more narrow than on Twins. The edge uplift is medium. Along with the dynamic camber this makes the Stallion a versatile and responsive all-mountain freestyle board.
The hardest flex in the whole range is perfect for ultimate aggressiveness no matter what terrain.
A poplar and paulownia wood core is streaked with bamboo along the edges from tip to tail and additionally reinforced with the lighter and stronger tri-axial plus fiberglass. This means massive pop and stability. Carbon stringers are placed lengthwise along the whole core. They give the board some extras of torsional strength, edgehold and snap. The sintered Ultra Glide S base is hard and fast, but wax it good!
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?
