Why we chose the Bataleon Distortia Snowboard: No other women’s board is this easy to progress on yet so capable across a variety of terrain. In fact our associate editor went straight out and bought one. Need we say more?
The last decade has seen the market flooded with rocker-combination boards intended to make turns and tricks that little bit easier. The trouble is, any kind of reverse camber compromises your ability to hold an edge through more aggressive carves. Bataleon stuck to their guns with Triple Base tech, and as the industry now goes increasingly 3D mad it looks like they were ahead of the game. The Distortia’s catch-free ride and friendly flex are brilliant in the park, but with some carbon lurking under the hood it’s also an awesome shape to explore the whole resort and even duck the ropes from time to time.
“Any twitchiness you might expect from the camber is ironed out seamlessly by the board’s three-dimensional Triple Base profile”
Who Is The Bataleon Distortia For?
Girls who want to shred, not just cruise. 180s, switch take-offs, butters and rail maneuvers are all easier on a true twin like this one. And if you fancy taking some of those park tricks to your favourite side hit, so much the better.
