The Bataleon She-W women’s snowboard boasts all the fine construction of the Bataleon Push Up, and is the same price, but with a freestyle twist. If the park is your focus, this would definitely be the one to go for.
You’ll find one of the more freestyle-friendly versions of Triple Base Technology on the Bataleon She-W. The middle section of base is pretty wide, making for a stable platform as you charge towards a booter or touch down on a rail, but there’s still enough side-base left over to keep those edges clear of any nasty catches.
“The She-W is softer than you’d expect for a board ridden by serious park slayers”
The uplift of the 3BT is minimal, so you’ll notice it a lot less than you would on, say, the Bataleon Magic Carpet – instead it’s more of a silent partner, providing you with an increased margin of error that can at times prove crucial.
The end-to-end flex of the Bataleon She-W is softer than you’d expect for a board ridden by serious park slayers, but thanks to some carbon stringers at the inserts, which run across the board from edge to edge, it’s still nice and stable at high speed.
A new addition is a hollow carbon tube down the middle of the board, which delivers a little more spring at the take-off point. Otherwise the Bataleon She-W is much the same high-end, highly-respected freestyle weapon.
