They say: The perfect twin board taken to the next level.
We say: Bataleon’s bestseller has been taken back to the drawing board, tweaked a bit and put out there once again for your entertainment. And once again it’s aimed at jibbers, park rats and anyone who enjoys not catching their edges.
Tester says: Good flex, perfect park board. Sinks a bit in powder, but it’s not really meant for that.

- History lesson: Bataleon burst onto the snowboarding scene a couple of years back with a blizzard of publicity surrounding their patented Triple Base Technology (TBT). The idea – that the sides of the base were angled upwards near the edges – was embraced by jibbers the world over who were sick and tired of catching edges and eating shit. This was back in the murky days before the arrival of reverse camber changed everything. Of course, Bataleon would tell you that reverse camber changed very little and it’s actually a poor man’s TBT…
- Ridden by: A few years ago all the cool kids riding Bataleon boards wore tall basketball tees, trousers that hung round their ankles, and plenty of bling. Now the same bunch seem to be rocking tight pants and lumberjack shirts. Go figure.
