Drawing on the best elements of the Push Up and adding a more powfriendly nose, the award-winning Storm has become an instant favorite of team rider Klaudia Medlova. It’s rapid edge to edge, stable over jumps and easy to ride switch, but duck the ropes and it chews backcountry lines for breakfast. A one board quiver that’s so good we had to give the guys their own version with the Thunder.
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 3BT - This board has a longer, wider nose combined with a shorter, narrower tail, as well as more uplift in the nose which provides effortless float facing forwards. The centerbase width is at the most narrow and uplift is the highest in at the nose creating unparalleled float in powder and fast edge transition.
Flex Rating – 5/10 (1=Soft,10=Stiff)
Light Core – 50-50 paulownia and poplar woods blend for optimal strength to weight properties.
Triax Laminate – The three-way fibreglass weave is light, strong and crazy responsive. We use this to beef up the flex pattern on our more aggressive boards.
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.
Carbon Stringers – Carbon is feather light and adds explosive pop, precise edge control, reactive response and smooth dampening to a board. Bataleon uses this to beef up the flex pattern.
Solid Walls – Tried and trusted ABS sidewalls for the best flex to strength ratio.
Hyper Glide S – Bataleon's standard sintered base that’s durable and fast – and even faster when you keep it waxed.
