The Push Up is Bataleon’s female specific mellow all-terrain vehicle, built to powder hunt in the morning, chomp sidehits on the way to the park, and then throw down on the metal for some afternoon top to bottoms.
As with all their offerings, the Push Up features Bataleon’s signature Triple Base Technology, lifting the sidebases outside of the inserts. A full camber runs the length of the board, with what is essentially a torsional rocker in the nose and tail. This blend of profiles offers insane amounts of float in deep snow, rock solid edge hold and one of the most forgiving profiles on the market.

Bataleon have used their Sidekick technology by the contact points in the nose and tail, increasing the amount of lift at the widest point of the snowboard. This further increases the easy handling of the board and make unintentional edge catches a thing of the past.
To add a bit more flavour into the mix carbon stringers run through the lower laminates in the centre of the board to beef it up slightly, without affecting the overall mellow flex. You’ve also got Bataleon’s Dual Super Tubes, which are hollow carbon rods placed in the core running between the feet on either side of the board to make the camber more dynamic and increase power through the edges. These additives dampen the board and ensure a rapid response time when you’re pushing it to the limit.

A lightweight wood core and a high molecular Super Slick X base finish off the board ensuring that it’s tough enough to take a beating, and won’t let you down when push comes to shove.
The Push Up is versatile, easy-going and a great sidekick for all-mountain exploration, you’ll be pushing yourself harder and faster than you’d think possible.
