Why we chose the Bataleon Distortia Snowboard: It’s a complete quiver killer.
The Bataleon Distortia has long been a favourite amongst lady shredders, from piste to park this twin ripstick can handle it all. Like all Bataleon offerings, the Distortia is tip to tail full camber. Having this long cambered section allows for insane amounts of pop as anytime the board is compressed down into the snow, it is itching to get back up and out.
“Bevelling the edge up also means that you’re gonna get smoother turn initiation”
The traditional drawbacks of having a full camber board have been ironed out by utilising Bataleon’s patented Triple Base Technology – which essentially acts as a torsional rocker. The Distortia employs their Twin 3BT which is the same both ways, and has medium uplift in the nose and tail, for maximum stability without sacrificing the board’s jib capabilities.
The 3BT bevels the base right by the contact points, which allows for a much smoother ride, so you can wave goodbye to those unintentional edge catches. Bevelling the edge up also means that you’re going to get smoother turn initiation, and a more uniform carve – as the whole edge engages at the same time.
