Does the term 'Good for a girl' make you cringe? …Well, it should. We present the VIOLENZA: a ladies' board with balls! With ALL MOUNTAIN TBT and a 1cm longer nose, the VIOLENZA can plough through even the most tracked out, shitty snow. The TBT angles make it super agile edge to edge and a longer flat section between your feet ensures a stable ride, even at terminal velocity. This board loves to carve, handles well in powder and delivers solid landings. As well as female powder hounds, all mountain dominators and backcountry lovers, the VIOLENZA is well suited to piste cruisers who love going fast!
Allmountain TBT is optimized for a more directional ride with a narrower center base for fast edge to edge and extended center flat for high speed stability.

The 4x2/20 insert pack enables you to put your bindings on with scientific precision.
Poplar core with hardwood enforcements along the insert rows. This increses the core strength of your board and channels all energy into more pop.
tri ax laminate
Tri-ax laminates over and under the core delivers precision in your riding.
Easy to repair and can take a good beating. Low maintenance, still slides well with irregular waxing (but waxing is always recommended of course!).
Thinner Lightning Edges enable you to carve with more feeling and precision.
VIOLENZA split project!
We wanted to share with you guys a rad correspondance that we have been having with one Derek Martinez from Vail, CO. He contacted us saying that his wife loved TBT and was looking for any information we could give him on triple base and its performance when split (in tour or ski mode). We had no info but he decided to go for it anyway. He then sent us a series of photos of the splitting, drilling, mounting and touring of the VIOLENZA! We love the way that a bold move like this can give a well loved board a new lease of life. Having done the deed, Derek gave us the following information to pass on to anyone out there who might be interested:
1) TBT is not noticeable when the board is split.
2) Bataleon boards have good, thick bases that lend themselves well to being split.
3) Once split the boards still perform: Derek reports top speeds of 75 mph downhill (from his satnav) and says that the board fully handled the forces at that speed!
4) He also reports that its flex and pop remain "surprisingly intact" and although the weight is slightly increased, this is only noticeable for the first few days.
5) He reckons it takes around 3 minutes to switch between modes, but thinks practice could get that down to under a minute!
So there you go! Thanks to Derek you can be safe in knowing that your TBT boards can be split, used as tourers and remain fun to ride. We salute your ballsy jigsaw use sir!!
