Why we chose the Bataleon Omni Snowboard: Not only one of the most powerful freeride boards we rode this season but, somehow, one of the most forgiving too.
The Bataleon Omni epitomises what freeriding is about. A base that absolutely flies and a rock-solid core that holds steady at warp speed? Tick. A board that floats on the deepest powder days without so much as an inch of back foot lean? Tick. All packaged up with a profile that not only delivers power and aggression running its entire length but does so in a way that won’t T-bone you the second you take your eye off the ball? Yep, one more big massive tick. It’s the omnivorous juggernaut that goes full hog across the mountain and still gets you home in one piece.
“Power is aplenty, whether it’s holding you steady through the arc or weathering stormy seas when conditions rut up”
It not only features a full, tip to tail, camber but the most pronounced, aggressive, bend available in the line. Power is aplenty, whether it’s holding you steady through the arc or weathering stormy seas when conditions rut up.
Obviously, that probably won’t grab the attention of the powder devotees out there. Thankfully, there’s more to the story. Triple Base Technology has certainly divided opinion over the years, but it’s possibly at its most effective away from the pistes.
The Omni features Bataleon’s freeride specific, base profiling. This delivers substantial uplift in the sidebases of the nose (and a little less so in the tail) to deliver float on par with the biggest nose rockers. The Omni ploughs over the surface but, with the addition of Backseat Inserts, you can position yourself even further towards the tail for those extra deep days.
