2023 Bataleon Fun Kink Snowboard
The Fun.Kink is the epitome of a modern go-anywhere shape. It’s super accessible, with a mellow flex and relaxed camber that encourages riders of every level to try stuff they wouldn’t have got away with on their old board. Together with the carbon-infused core for powerful ollies, it’s a seamless blend of technology and fun that represents everything Bataleon stands for.
3BT™ (Triple Base Technology) with SideKick™ – All Bataleon boards feature tip to tail positive camber in combination with lifted sidebase contact points. SideKick™ Tips enhance 3BT’s advantages like nothing you experienced before by dramatically increasing the sidebase uplift at the widest points of the nose and tail. This makes turn initiation even smoother, increases float in powder and handling of the board in rough terrain.
Directional Twin 3BT - Bataleon's directional twin boards have a twin sidecut and contact area and a directional outline. These boards are shaped with evenly proportioned center and side bases with medium uplift for the perfect balance for freestyle and freeriding.
Flex Rating – 4/10 (1=Soft,10=Stiff)
Core Core – Full poplar with beech hardwood laid tip to tail along the inserts strengthening the board’s backbone, reinforcing the inserts and producing more pop.
Biax Laminate – Bataleon's traditional and time tested two-way weave of fiberglass is light, strong and responsive; keeping the board snappy without adding torsional stiffness.
Dual Super Tubes – Dual Super Tubes are two hollow carbon core upgrades that are inserted into the core. The hollow carbon tubes greatly increase the woodcore’s pop and reduce weight.
Shock Walls – Urethane infused sidewall technology. Shock Walls smooth out your ride and are more resistant to impact.
Hyper Glide S – Bataleon's standard sintered base that’s durable and fast – and even faster when you keep it waxed.
