Why we chose the Bataleon Stuntwood Snowboard: It’s top of the list for triple corking teens whose bag of tricks is deeper than their voice.
So, your kid is already better than you at snowboarding. Chin up, it could be worse, they could be a skier… There’s a strange no man’s land between kiddy snowboards and full size adult decks, and when your grom has outgrown the former but the latter is still a bit cumbersome and unwieldy they’re often left a bit shortchanged. Enter the brand new Bataleon Stuntwood, the all-mountain freestyle ripper built specifically for the young guns. Drawing much of its DNA from the multi-award winning Bataleon Evil Twin, the Stuntwood is the ultimate pint sized party wagon for your prepubescent park rat.
Although on paper it’s the ideal companion for hotlapping the park and freestyle sessions all day long, in reality, despite its name, the Stuntwood boasts incredible versatility across the whole mountain. This is thanks in part to Bataleon’s signature Triple Base Technology (3BT). While other brands bickered over hybrid profiles, Bataleon brought 3D shapes to the forefront of the industry and changed the game forever.
“The Stuntwood is the ultimate pint sized party wagon for your prepubescent park rat”
Their three step base profile has a wide, flat centrebase with uplifted sidebases out to the contact points. As the Stuntwood is weighted and running flat, the contact points are raised from the snow for a solid ride without the fear of accidental edge catches. When you’re up on an edge, the board is pre-angled to mimic the shape it would be when in motion, powering up the whole sidecut throughout the entire arc of the turn.
3BT really is the gift that keeps giving, and the benefits can be felt across the whole mountain. The uplifts in the nose and tail give you one of the most forgiving and progression driven rides on the market when you’re pushing it in the park. Whether it’s a dodgy landing, an underrotation or choppy snow, you get loads of extra leeway to help you dial in new tricks.
