What kind of snow does it prefer? Whatever. Once again the name says it all. This board is simply capable of whatever. It's comfortable from park to off-piste. So ride the Whatever whenever and however you please!
Rails and boxes of this world, this is where the Whatever feels home. But wait, also powder does feel better with this board.
A versatile board like the Whatever needs the Freestyle 3BT. The nose is 1 cm longer than the tail and the sidecut radius is narrower. This results in more float plus more grip.
Centerbase and sidebases of the Freestyle 3BT are equally wide and the edge uplift is a bit higher than on Twins. Along with the dynamic camber this makes the Whatever a versatile and responsive all-mountain freestyle board.
The medium flex is perfect for jibbing the park and slashing pow. It's ultra-flexy and super playful.
A poplar wood core is streaked with beech wood from tip to tail and sandwiched with bi-axial fiberglass. This means great press and pop properties plus a quick manoeuverability. Carbon and Kevlar stringers are placed lengthwise in the center from inserts to inserts. They give the board some extras of torsional strength, edgehold and snap. 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?
