The Disaster blends innovative tech with hard-as-nails construction for a jib deck that can attack anything in its path. It features our most relaxed camber and a soft flex so it feels chill on the run-in and is easy to press. This season we updated the nose shape and giving it more kick for skate like feel.
1. Terrain - Park
What’s this board’s natural home? Full send in the park? Elbows down on the trails? Or chucking roosters somewhere off grid?
2. Flex - 2.0
Softer snowboards are easier to press and won’t kick your ass if you make a mistake. Stiffer decks are more stable at speed and super responsive edge-to-edge. Choose your poison.
3. Float Ratio - 58
Maximum volume for surfy vibes in the pow, or a smaller surface area for nimble freestyle performance. This number is calculated with length, width, 3D shape and surface distribution.
Outline Shape -
Boards that are shaped for the park are designed with maximum center base width and minimal side base uplift. Creating a stable landing platform with confidence boosting forgiveness and next level agility. Think about your tricks not about your edges.
Nose Sidebase Uplift - Low
The gradual side base uplift in the nose determines how the board will behave on snow. most effected are the edge to edge performance and the uplift generated when riding powder.
Tail Sidebase Uplift - Low
The gradual side base uplift in the tail determines how the board will behave on snow. Any amount of uplift brings all the benefits of Triple Base Technology making our boards more versatile then others.
Camber Profile - Low Camber
Camber profiles are defined from low to high. Higher camber make for more dynamic boards that need to be ridden more aggressively to get maximum performance. Lower camber boards are smoother on lower speeds and in powder. All camber profiles run from nose to tail. higher is not always better...
3D Shape - 3BT™ + Sidekick™
Combining the responsiveness of traditional tip-to-tail camber with the dynamic shaping properties of Triple Base Technology and the performance boosting Sidekick feature makes for a 3D snowboarding experience like no other.
Glassing - Bi-Ax Lamination
A traditional two-way weave that is light, strong and playful; it keeps the board snappy without adding torsional stiffness, which is great for getting creative.
Woodcore - Core
Full poplar with hardwood beech stringers to strengthen the boards backbone, reinforce the inserts and increase pop.
Base - Hyper Glide S
Our standard sintered base that’s durable and fast – and even faster when you keep it waxed.
Sidewalls - Shock Walls Sidewall
This is our Urethane infused sidewall technology. ShockWalls smooth out your ride and are more resistant to impact.
At the heart of every Bataleon is a combination of 3BT™ and positive camber. It’s an innovative solution to the profile puzzle that minimizes the potential for edge-catch without sacrificing ollie power or carving performance. From this starting point, we fine-tune each element according to the boards desired riding style.
SideKick™ builds on the concept of Triple Base by increasing the sidebase uplift just outside the widest points of the nose and tail. The tips become more like a hull, boosting float in deep snow and slicing through crud. It also helps the board to roll quickly and evenly from edge to edge.
