The Bataleon Spirit is a confidence-inspiring, easy-going, board designed to boost your ego and max out your fun-o-meter. Perfect for those who are just getting into snowboarding, or for more experienced riders who want a playful, forgiving, ride.
It features a super mellow camber to give you enough response to get your edges in when you’re tearing up the piste, but is also subtle enough that it won’t force you into turns before you’re ready.
“The result is a super mellow, catch free ride that’ll stop the ‘oh shit I don’t wanna face plant’ panic as you’re snowboarding”
In our humble opinion Bataleon’s Triple Base is the ultimate learning tool, as it allows you to make mistakes and have wobbles without punishing you for it. A flat section in the middle runs the length of the board, with the side bases being lifted outside the bindings. The result is a super mellow, catch free, ride that’ll stop the ‘oh shit I don’t wanna face plant’ panic when you’re snowboarding.
A soft flexing board with an easy-going extruded base, it’ll be nice and gentle over lumps and bumps rather than a Mach-10, rattle your fillings, death-defying day out. If that’s your jam, look to the stiffer boards in the Bataleon line.
The Spirit has a twin shape, so you can work on that switch riding with no dramas, but the inserts are slightly set back so you’ll get a bit more nose when you’re riding. Shifting your weight slightly to the back will allow you to put more power through your turns and make it a bit smoother on piste.
Snowboarding is meant to be fun and this is. No pressure, no stress, the Spirit will lift yours.
