The Don. The Mac Daddy. The big ol’ Bowser showdown. Sitting at the highest level of Bataleon’s true twin range, the Boss is built for the most experienced and demanding freestyle riders. Top to bottom, tip to tail, every inch of the snowboard has been tailored for performance in the park.
What differentiates the Boss from the likes of the Global Warmer or Evil Twin is its pop. There’s a stiffer flex pattern compared to the former, and a more aggressive Dynamic Camber than the latter.
That’s further enhanced with the addition of a hollow carbon tube, milled between the inserts, and two carbon cross-beams positioned underfoot. Like having an electrical current running between the two terminals of your bindings, the response is immediate – both down the centre and from edge to edge. In short, with the Boss, you’re strapping into a launchpad. This is a snowboard built for the biggest takeoffs and heaviest landings

The nose and tail have been kept relatively more forgiving than the centre of the board. Combined with Bataleon’s renowned Triple Base technology and Sidekick, it eliminates unexpected hookups and is more than capable of cranking those butters and letting loose on the rails.
However, when running flat base, the Boss is still incredibly stable, built with a balls-to-the-wall approach to taking on the big line.
That’s made all the easier thanks to the Ultra Glide Sintered base. Sitting just below Bataleon’s ultra-tech Nano base (reserved for only their fastest freeride deck), you’ll watch the knuckle, comfortably pass you by on every hit as you sail through the air. And up in the clouds is exactly where you’ll be spending most of your time on this thing, Boss’s orders.
