Bataleon has a new home – the world renowned SWS factory in Dubai is where the 2017/18 line has been constructed, and it’s looking like it’ll be the best one yet. One thing that hasn’t changed, however, is the brand’s fondness for experimenting with new shapes.
“The triple base is way more pronounced at the nose than at the tail, giving you necessary stability at the back and unparalleled float at the front”
Standing out from the crowd this winter is the Bataleon Surfer. Given the suitability of their Triple Base Technology in the powder, Bataleon have never shied away from backcountry-friendly sticks – and this one steps things up further still.
Just look at it: the Bataleon Surfer has a massive nose, a wide waist and the swallowiest of swallowtails. It’s not just about what you can see, though – a lot of stuff is at work that you might miss unless you examine it closely. Or better yet, take it for a spin in the powder.
