The Bataleon She W is a snowboard built for freestyle domination and it cut its teeth strapped on to some of the best park riders of this generation. While this little pocket rocket was originally conceived to throw heaters between the park ropes, the versatile shape and easy-going profile make it a multi-purpose tool you can razz around the whole mountain. Sitting just the right side of garish, you’ll be catching eyes and catching air all over the hill.
Bataleon’s signature Triple Base Technology is without a shadow of a doubt one of the best ways to up your freestyle game. The uplifts in the side bases, outside the contact points, mean the She W comes equipped with a ‘get out of jail free’ card. The slight lifts along the edge offer you the chance to get away with less than perfect landings, under or over rotations and help to stop burrs from scuppering your chances on the metal. Accidental edge catches are a thing of the past with the She-W and expanding your trick repertoire has never been so painless.

Not only useful in the park, the Jib 3BT offers a super smooth ride any damn place you want to throw it around. Having those lifts in the nose and tail lend a helping hand whilst in deeper snow, as they keep the board plaining across the top of the snow. Acting like the hull of a boat and funneling snow out the sides, the She-W gives you the ability to ride powder way better than you have any right to on a short, soft park board. Between the feet the She W is flat across the width, making for a super stable mid-section. This comes into its own when you need the extra confidence whilst you’re straight lining a mottled piste or trying to perfect your 50-50.
The Super Slick X base, while being fast enough to keep you at the front of the pack, is also able to take the kind of hammering that comes with long days seshing rails, boxes and street features. The durability, and easily reparable nature makes it the perfect choice for the She W.
“The Bataleon She-W aint your average jib board, it’s a high spec, high octane partner in crime”
The She-W is the most jib focused in Bataleon’s line and it’s what’s under the hood that really allows it to stand out from the pack. Bataleon have placed carbon stringers running underfoot by each set of inserts allow the board to have incredible edge to edge responsiveness, without sacrificing the playful tip to tail flex. The She-W also houses a Central Super Tube milled into the core, a hollow carbon tube that sits vertically between the inserts and super charges the boards pop, and offers long lasting dampening for those slap landings. This is a board that you can easily manipulate the flex, that’s soft enough to press, butter and flatland to your hearts content but is punchy and aggressive enough to go big.
The Bataleon She-W aint your average jib board, it’s a high spec, high octane partner in crime for booter shooting, kicker stomping, rail riding, sidehitting access-all-areas fun. Buckle up and get ready for the ride because the future is female.
