The Bataleon Storm women’s snowboard may be the most exciting female-specific deck to make its debut in the 2018/19 season. Its subtly directional shape and profile is part of a high-spec design that should be on the radar of any rider looking for an all-mountain option that leans towards freeriding.
On the surface the Bataleon Storm looks like a regular directional twin snowboard, but a closer look reveals much. Firstly, it’s subtly tapered, trading off a little bit of switch performance for a boost in powder float and carving.
“Similarly to the Surfer and the Party Wave, the nose has a spoon-like quality”
Bataleon’s signature Triple Base Technology also has a directional element to it on this model. Similarly to the Surfer and the Party Wave, the nose has a spoon-like quality thanks to an increased degree of uplift at the side sections of base. Unlike those pow-specific boards, however, the tail isn’t as flattened off, so switch landings into powder will be that much more manageable.
