“I started boarding in 2015, using a Burton - catching edge after edge. This year, 2016, I bought a Bataleon Whatever board (and a fun.kink), no edge catches thanks to the TBT and my boarding progressed so much. I flipping love it. The board has a nice mound of flex, looks fantastic, easy to ride. You become brand loyal when you get a Bataleon board, I love them and can't wait to see their new lines. I'd love to try more boards! Magic Carpet, The Jam, Evil Twin, and beyond!!!”

“Best board i have had, super light and great for everything. Used it in park and pow and works perfect.
it is also superfast:-)”

Shay

“No joke, best board out there.
Wanna run crazy tight trees? Done.
Want to blast down big mnt. bowls? Easy.
Get funky in bounds? Ain't no thing.
I've put this up against everything the industry can throw at it, and to date, nothing has touched it. This board can do everything in style, and believe me, I'm on my third one.”

Pierre Martineau

“Crazy !!! Got an Airobic and Fun.kink before that one and the G.W takes the best of both Airobic and Fun.kink. Perfect for freestyle of course but also incredible in the powder, it goes surprisingly well.
Awesomeness : 10”

Peter

“Best board ever. Light av with great pop, good looking also.”

Steve

“Took this board for my first rides in the Norwegian off-piste and was absolutely blown away. I have never ridden anything so smooth, fast, light, and effortless etc. in powder. I can see why it's is aptly named "Magic Carpet" because I was floating most of the way down. It made the entire day an unforgettable experience, and I can confidently say this is the best board I've ever owned.”

Stan

“First of all I love TBT and have ridden TBT boards for 4-5 years now. The ET asym is a good board but im not sure I like the asym, since the board feels shorter on the heel side it is not that much better grip at least not when you carve. For me personally I like the normal boards better and it just feels a little off when I carve and do butters on boxes.
But I have not tried the board in icy conditions, it might be better on that.

JONNY BIG

“BEST RAIL BOARD EVER MADE.................”

Aleix Gallimo

“The Jam got my soul. I came from Downhill skateboarding and I was looking for the same speed feeling, for push the board on the limit of the grip, and make fast twists.
But also a great board for the pow days.
That's an awesome mix!”

Jonasty

“2014 Goliath is perfect for the deep pow here at Bigwhite. Triple base is making me ride like a pro! My kids agree to ride with me again.”

Lorenz Richard

“Rode it on the weekend and it blow me away. I am snowboarding over 24 years but this is the best board I have ever ridden in powder and on slope - hands down.”

Tyler Kinghorn

“I bought the Evil Twin after riding a cheap board for three seasons.
Her maiden voyage was at Sunshine Village. We rode up the gondola to the first chair, and I was surprised at how much control I had with only my front foot in the bindings.
My first impression when I strapped in was the flex- she wasn't nearly as stiff as the board I had been riding.
My second impression was how responsive she was when I started carving down the hill- it was effortless, as easy as breathing. I was able to switch with no problem whatsoever.
Then, we hit the powder. She was able to coast through smoothly, and I was able to manage moguls pretty damn well.
When we tried the park, she performed just as well. With the side bases lifted up, it was damn near impossible to catch an edge landing a jump. I'm not great at rails so I can't say much about her performance there, but all around, the best board I have ever ridden.”

Engin Kafadar

“Today got it frist whitegold north...:)”

Michel

“This is the 3rd revision of this board which is strapped to my feet since 4 seasons. If you like riding hard boards, who still give you the ability to do Big Jumps and a couple of Rails in the Park, then this is yours. Don't get me wrong it's still possible to do some nice butters, but you just gotta put a lot of skills to it. I am a super agressive rider, this board is a killer machine while going at the speed limit on the slopes, no flattering, no catching edges, just unlimited speed. Friends asked me many times if they could test ride the board and all were stoked with the speed. Now lets talk about the Freeriding feeling, this board is sick in pow, I've done so many redicoulus line with it and have to say it's amazing, floats well and has the speed you need to overcome some of the flats. For me this is my all mountain weapon, I would not recommend this to intermediate riders, because I think you'd do better with a bit softer board like the Goliath. One last word, I am being asked a few times why I don't ride Burton, let me say this, Bataleon gives me much better value for the money and their service is great. A previous board had issues with the base and it was replaced immediately after providing some pictures. I won't mention the TBT as you have to test for yourself, it's tough to explain the advantages. All I can say that I have much less catching edges while doing Pro Kicker lines than ever before.”

Alexei Sapsford

“The name of this board is apt for it. Feels super stable on pretty much any terrain. I've ridden it for 8 days now and even though I'm a tall guy (6'2"/188cm) was feeling very comfortable at 50mph+ on this board. Seems a lot lighter than some of my other boards and even with the stability, has enough flex to have some fun with. Very buttery when it needs to be. Runs wider than regular 156 boards which works well for us big footed people.”

Jaymez Clark

“When I walked into the shop asking recommendations for a board, the shop keep dived at the Evil Twin, and I can totally see why. This board is sick. End of. Stop reading reviews and go buy one.”

Jack Gren

“Been stoked on 3BT ever since I bought a Locust in 2008...which, years later, I replaced with an Undisputed. I've also owned a Riot and, currently, a GW. Looking forward to riding my new 2016 Disaster. Keep in mind that Bataleons are a bit stiffer than other brands at the same stiffness number and you can't go wrong.”

“Great board for jibbers and park rats, I have been riding this board for one year now. And it just shreds!

Very nice flex, and a sweet pop. The TBT make this board also very forgiving.”

Daniel

“Bought my first kink last year....awesome board, good for everything you want to do...i really don't want anything else...”

MC

“This board will make you feel all kinds of better. Got it a couple of years ago. Really versatile, floats on powder, well up to knee deep (maybe not so much in waist deep!) and is a super fun board on a resort, although I've had my struggles carving with it on hard pack icy groomers with it. Overall, made me happy. My roomate kept borrowing it, she seemed to like it! Thinking of buying a new board and here I am looking up the same one... again!”

Mike Brindley – Whitelines

“When you first strap in to this one, you can instantly tell where its strengths lie. Pressing and spinning on a spot are as easy as it gets, and the Jib 3BT has nice wide and stable balance points at the nose and tail.

As it’s at the soft end of Bataleon’s spectrum, it’s also pretty obvious what the board is not intended for. That large flat surface area and pliable flex combine to make things difficult if you’re trying to power through choppy terrain, and holding course at high speed can be an issue – so it’s definitely not an all-rounder.

Nevertheless, if you take the Disaster as a jib specialist (as you should), you are unlikely to be disappointed. The price point is reasonable, hang-ups are non-existent, and trick control is handed to you on a plate.”

Darren Williams – thesnowboardshop.co.uk

“When I first got on an Evil Twin I thought it was going to be a soft, playful jib stick. I was wrong. It’s a medium flex, cambered snowboard with plenty of pop that is best suited to lapping the park and all-mountain freestyle.

Bataleon have never entertained the concept of ‘rocker’ in their snowboards – and they don’t need to, as the side bases are lifted up from the snow at the contact points, making it almost impossible to catch an edge.

It’s great for newbies, and also for riders who are trying new tricks and are sick and tired of smashing themselves to bits in the process.”

Chris Strurgess – snowfit.co.uk

“This is the board that finally won me over to Bataleon. In the past I’ve found their Triple Base Technology a little loose and sketchy on ice, but the finely-tuned version on the Magic Carpet makes it a very stable and fun snowboard.

The tech and shaping has been taken from last years’ Whitegold Proto, and the resulting board is floaty, super light, poppy, and begs you to mess about and try new things.

Whether its in tight trees, off side hits or ripping down the piste, the Magic Carpet flies over everything”

Mike Smith

“The guy in the store (EVO) told me that on Bataleon you get best of both worlds due to the 3D base (3BT) Lose and forgiving like rocker but the stability of a cambered board. Sounded to good to be thru but it really is. This G.W. is a real jibboard but is still does perform really good on medium sized jumps and even carves better than any board I've ridden before. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a Jibboard that does more than just that.”

Henk van Hattem

“This is the most fun I ever had on a snowboard. It makes so much sense to ride twin in pow. So fun to do 180s and butters and kick up pow every which way. super easy to land cliff jumps. Also use it in the park and its great on side hits.”

Chris Cartwright

“WOOOOW.... What can I say, I took this away at the end of last season to the Alps and loved every minute of it. everyone in the group had a go and everyone loved it, short so turns on a knife edge, floats like a dream in powder, runs fast and straight on the piste and even took it in the park! the board flex was really forgiving and made an outstanding playful, smile on your face ride.”

Stian

“I have changed to a Lobster board now but bought a Bataleon Airobic 3 years ago and it is was great, really like TBT boards.”

Dan Boom

“My first Bataleon, a 2013-2014 Riot 159W, made me so thrilled when nuking down the mountain shredding and playing like a dolphin I was close to the point of hysterical laughing and crying at the same time, from pure extacy :-) Y3/H 4 iT!”

Jordan

“The Bataleon Disaster is absolutely the most fun I have had on a snowboard to date! I highly recommend this deck to anyone!!”

Eric J

“I straight forward Love the Global Warmer and the Boss... I have owned well over 30 boards and for park, mtn, under a foot of pow they do great! For progressing riding switch the tbt is the best out of the 15 boards I've tried at my local mtn demo days when all the reps come and let you check out next years gear. The boat like shape helps me progress without rocker. I've always liked camber boards, so that's why I enjoy them so much. Thanks for making fun playful snowboards that seem to be stable and have a solid base. I used to only ride the B company boards and they were good, however I didn't progress as fast as I wanted.”

“Hallo. Kann nur gutes über dieses Board berichten. Bin das Omni 163 jetzt ca. 3 Wochen gefahren, ich war sehr viel im Powder und Abseits unterwegs, und hatte noch nie etwas geileres unter den Füßen als dieses Board. Egal ob Powder, Off Piste, oder auf der Piste Heitzen oder doch nur Carven, es geht einfach alles mit dem Teil. Bataleon macht meiner Meinung nach die geilsten Boards. Das nächste wird bestimmt wieder ein TBT Board.”

Murphy

“Bataleon=Perfection”

Pat F

“I ride mt baker about 50 to 75 days a season, the camel toe was my board of choice for powder days over a foot of fresh. I have now been riding the Omni on all of the good days and I absolutely love it. I rode it in 14" a couple weeks ago and I was completely amazed all over again, once you ride directional in deep powder its hard going back. TBT floats in powder better than a flat board with whatever camber rocker combo you please, everyone must try for themselves. Coming from l#bt@#$%s these boards are top quality. Must Recommend.”

“I'm still riding (season 2014) my Evil Twin from 2007 and I freakin love it even more for every season. Works great on everything from rails to powder and I will never buy a new board unless it has TBT!!”

FIONIC

“The 2013-14 Goliath is an amazing board!I did my first proper 360 on it. So STOKED!!!!. BATALEON is AWESOME AND THE TBT ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Edu Koa

“I bought a disaster few months ago and I couldn´t be happier. It´s faster on track than I thought and It´s very light and responds to all kinds of tricks.”

“I’m riding a 146 2013 Distortia and I love it!! It is definitely a park board. It is my 2nd year riding park and it find that it rides very well (I’ve been riding mountain for 14 years) The edges don’t catch, it jumps well and it makes me feel confident to try new tricks and keep pushing myself. My previous board is a 2006 Salomon Ivy (rated a freestyle board (2 of 5) with a mid flex range (2.5 of 5)) and compared to that, this board feels soft between the bindings, but the pop in the tail is great once you get the hang of it. That goes for the TBT base too. The heel turns throw you off sometimes when riding mountain since you need to lean a bit more for the edge to catch. It also makes it kind of crappy on ice (I ride on the East coast). When this board meets ice, it stands no chance, so find myself breaking out my old Ivy for mountain riding. Icy days are no kind of fun. If there is a bit of snow left on the hill or the ice is a bit soft, it can perform though, but it’s sketchy. However this board is incredibly fun to ride otherwise. It is very playful and it just puts a smile on my face.

I don’t find it a fast board. The softness makes it a bit unresponsive when riding mountain at speed and it chatters a bit. I find if performs much better on the mountain if you are scoping for fun features to jib off of and just fool around in general.

Being on the East coast, I can’t say how it performs in powder.

It rides switch beautifully. I’m glad for the different icons on the nose and tail because it helps me figure out which direction I usually ride as I get confused sometimes. Yes, the switch rides that well!

I ride it with Rome Madison Boss bindings and 86FT ThirtyTwo boots and they pair beautifully with it. I have tried the board with my old Ride Ex bindings (also of the 2006 era and not women’s specific) and I find they are too stiff for the board. The board really loses some of its playfulness with the stiffer bindings.

I would completely recommend this board to any girl who wants to ride park with some mountain in between.”

Martin To

“I have the 2013 Global Warmer. I keep going back to it despite trying others.

It always has been my 'go to' board”

“CAMEL TOE & JAM...sounds like an interesting combo.Chamonix, Argentiere,Tignes & Val d'iser 6 weeks of boarding on and off piste 12/13. Am I going to buy a new board for 13/14...aye! probably an ENEMY...Bataleon, I would not now ride anything else...CAMEL TOE & JAM...oh yes please.”

Sabino

“I have never felt so comfortable going so fast through so much terrain as I do on my Goliath. Two seasons into it, it's tough as hell, and it lets me cover the entire mountain (e.g, all of Whistler / Blackcomb) without ever feeling sketched out.

I would never put anything else on my feet.”

Dalton

“I'm a level 2 CASI instructor and I would recommend a Bataleon. Great in the park and all over the mountain. I ride an Evil Twin.. sick board.”

“I got a Disaster for Christmas this year and i have been loving it ever since i HIGHLY recommend it. Very flexible and great for everything that i love to do in the park.”

Jean-Christophe

“I just bought the bataleon goliath 156cm and tried it last week on perfect spring conditions in French alpes . TBT is amazing, that's a pure feeling . I have tried it and I keep it ! never ride such a thing, the best I ever tried.”

Troy

“I really love my 2010 Enemy+++. Fast, very light, stable and edge hold is incredible. I hope Bataleon make Enermy+++ perfect twin because I like to do switch ride/skate/spin. Right now I had to move one of my bindings to different holes to make it look like a twin. I use this board almost everywhere except moguls (That's Airobic's turf).”

Jake (kubko)

“Bataleon is truly making the best boards in the industry in my opinion. With the eternal war of base profiles, bataleon gives the stability of full-length camber, but with the float of rocker with the TBT. Their boards are exactly how I think a snowboard should feel. yeah for it!”

Jamie

“Bought my 1st board this season its a Global Warmer and I defo made the right choice... This board can do it all”

sam slam

“I used to have a quiver of 6 boards, tbt made all but the race board completely obsolete, the jam is a quiver of one. Now i wonder how tbt would be on a race/alpine/freecarve board would be? tbt don't make boards slower, that's for sure..”

sam slam

“my testicles were really swollen, so i went to the doc. after a bunch of negative tests he asked if i had recently gotten a bataleon, when i said yes he said "you have a case of TBT affliction, it gives you HUGE BALLS! don't worry, girls will say YEAH FOR IT!"”

Fred

“Got an Evil Twin and took it out today for the first time and it kicks more ass than Jackie Chan on speed. If I ever buy another board it will be Bataleon period.”

“Lobster Jib Board 153, most fun I've ever had on a snowboard. Never riding a non TBT board again.”

Daniel

“Bought a 2012 Goliath intending to just ride it on powder but it goes everywhere on the mountain.
No more catching edges and the board looks sick. TBT is where its at!”

nick lippert

Thank you!”

Dom

“TBT is the truth.
Nothing more to say.

“Just got a 2013 Goliath and after riding it for a while i would def pay full price and beyond for this board. It's perfect as an all round stick.”

Paul

“I was hesitant at first but I decided to get the Fun.Kink and I have no regrets. It delivered everything I had hoped for. It's fast, flexible, and forgiving. On top of that it has tons of pop. Bataleon took fun to a whole new level.”

Glenn

“Been hooked on your board for 3/4 years, funny and good!!”

Seton Sieracki

“I don't have a Bataleon board but I tested one out and they are sick as hell. The triple base is so cool and feels great and way different from what I ride, mostly better than anything else. I will trade my annoying b$%^&n for a Bataleon any day...”

Filip Modrzejewski

“First of all BATALEONS are original and really outstanding boards with perfect graphics and its fitted with even the most demanding riders needs. Secondly perfect flex connected with very strong durability witch makes that board almost undestructable. This the most important things which i, as a passionate rider, looking at during chosing board for myself. Just keep on doin what u doin cause you're the best :)”

“First session at the snowdome last night on the TBT Lobster Parkbaord- you're so right, awesome technology. I've been snowboarding for 4 years, a holiday each year and a bit of snowdome, but with kids in tow and no lessons after Week 1, it's been slower progress than your typical full-of-shit boarder would have you believe. I've been riding cambered or flat rockered boards, as after a brief demo on a banana, I've kind of ruled out 'new tech' as a bit of red-herring that might liven-up a ride for some, but for others it just makes everything feel sketchy and reduces confidence.

First off, the TBT seemed to level everything off, it really improving my technique and I could feel my front foot biting more, rather than being so back footed and clumsy. Also I noticed at low speed even when the odd wrong edge touched down it didn't actually catch, which meant far less embarrassing stacks on the pull rope (or at the bottom of the chair lift when abroad)- in fact I didn't properly stack it once in a 3 hour session.

As far the board ride itself- really smooth and glidey... nice fast acceleration and good top end with loads and loads of control on the edge to edge transitions. It carves really tightly without much effort and totally stable throughout, I can't wait to see what happens when I open it up a bit on a nice wide red run. Being a snowdome, you've got to come to some quite sharp abrupt stops as it gets crowded and there's always beginners out. This is where the board really excelled- the TBT gives a strong braking sensation, but you can feel it comes to a much more controlled stop - it's like ABS for snowboards.

Negatives? Only one very slight negative. When strapping and laying the board down you can't really 'dig a ledge with an edge' for stability. So if you strap in standing up (as I do), then you're going to need to make sure you don't mind a bit of slide or you're on level ground.

So in summary, what an awesome board! Ideally I would have liked the 2011/12 graphic Evil Twin as the Bataleon brand is probably a bit more mainstream for a proper adult- but this is essentially the same board without those glow-in-the-dark skulls of the 2012 ET. However if Bataleon (or Lobster) isn't on someone's radar- maybe they think it's a bit of freestyle kid / park rat brand, or they've been fed a line on the internet about some weird rocker profile, then they should seriously test one out before parting with cash for something else. The TBT really does work to make everything so much easier. I was spinning around flat 360s and having right laugh by the end- I've no major freestyle aspirations, but just to mess around on the snow was cool and will certainly liven up those lazy morning blue runs. Okay it was only one session at a dome, but honestly it's transformed my riding already.

“Knew I wanted one from the day I found out about these guys. Bought a 2009/10 Evil Twin 155 and love it. I tell everyone that the biggest difference is when you go back to any other board, you feel like you're gonna DIE! Bombin' 120kph on my Bataleon though... No problem.”

Karl Hughes

“Thanks to the Whatever I board..!!!! so much so I have just bought a Jam too....now I look forward to some WOW in the POW !
Cheers Bataleon for for giving me the door to a new world of wonder.”

Chris Moye

“I have been riding Bataleon since 08 and will never switch back. Tried many diffeerent flavors of reverse camber and didn't dig on them. Borrowed a Bataleon Jam from a friend at my home hill for a season and was MEGA sold on it. It took a day to get used to the edges being raised up a bit. Once I did though, the improvement to my riding was immense and immediate. Faster straightlines, sharper and quicker turns, mega pop and loose on the butters. All the while floating better than my old board that was considerably larger. Currently rocking the Riot for the third year in a row. The new base shapes are even better than before. If you are on the fence about these boards, check one out on a demo day at your hill. I promise, it won't be a day wasted. Shout out to Tyler for getting me my new deck faster than I could've, had I come to the warehouse to pick it up. Yeah for it!”

Adrian

“Hey I met your rep Nando last night at the "La Familia", "Shoot the Moon" movie event. He was super rad and really repped you guys well. I can't wait for the snow to start falling so that me and Goliath can start ripping and stomping on everything in our path!”

doug

“Picked up a 2006 The Enemy in great condition for a song on eBay. I can't wait to shred the shit out of this stick. Had a dream about a board with TBT which sent me on quest for a Bataleon board once I learned someone actually made boards like in my dream. This season will rule now that I have one in my possession.”

Sinjan Potgieter

“so i got the bataleon disaster today and road it at grous mountains opening day. it was freakin amazing the best board i have ever ridden by far!! the soft flex is amazing for jibbing and is surprisingly very stable at high speeds! im so stoked on this board!! yeahforit!

Anna

“I liked my 2008 violenza... But i am madly in love with my new distortia! I just LOVE it!

Mitch Coutts

“Finally got to ride my 154 Bataleon Evil Twin yesterday and it is true what they say about TBT. I immediately felt the diffrence. No more edge catching and extreme speed. Edging was excellent. I will never turn back now this board has changed the way I view snowboarding. Yeah For It!”

Adam

“Just ordered this year's OMNI to go along with last year's ET Artist. Definitley need these backseat inserts for the pow on its way to Bachelor!!

Chumdizz

“2011 ET lots of fun! I'll let my friends hop on it to test it out, they're all sold.. My brother just won an ET off eBay, loves it. Ive ridden ride, forums, rossignal, Rome and I used to think my rossignal was a sweet board.. I use that to drag behind a snowmobile on dirt roads. My wife's never ridden one yet so she'll be surprised Christmas day, I'll let you know how much she loves her Disrtortia! Thanks bataleon for TBT!! Yeah for it!!”

Rossy

“Was bombing a black diamond from the peak of Whistler on my Airobic 151 today, doing an olie from a bump, sketching out on the landing. I would have eaten sh*t if it wasn't for the tbt :D I'm hooked for life.

neil

“Tried TBT for the first time yesterday. The difference is astounding. There's no way I'll be going back to a regular base. Like all seemingly simple ideas TBT is a milestone in development. Flat bases are extinct...

“Just replaced my 2009 Fun.Kink US edition for yeah, Whatever! I hope it rocks (although rocker SUCKS) even more than the fun thing!”

Sumdum Haolie

“Omni 167, Me 5'10" 190lbs, Not bad for a short board, a lil catchy where the tbt stops and the normal base begins, deffinitely have to add holes on the rear base, not back far enough for even moderate pow days, base seems super soft. Seems like a good Idea just not that well executed.”

Chris

“To put it simply, I will never be able to try another brand of snowboard. I can't tell if it's a good thing or a bad thing, but I am stuck with Bataleon for life. TBT defines my riding style these days... You have created something special. :)

David Cameron

“Goddamn it Bataleon. I've just bought a Goliath. I'm not even going to be able to ride it for a year but after I demoed it I couldn't help myself, TBT is GOOD. Goddamn you and your fine ass boards, it's going to be sitting taunting me for the next 12 months.”

Justin W.

“TBT must actually be the best thing since toast. I go up on a friday with my old flat board, and couldn't do butter spins over 360. I get a Evil Twin the next day and I'm doing butter 1080's. Amazing. Now I will only buy boards from Bataleon and Lobster

Chris Ferrara

“TBT is the best board technology there is. BATALEON FOR LIFE! i never rode a jib board as good as the disaster, its super soft, it pops with ease, and you can butter and ride a rail like its your job on this board. TBT RULES

huw

“truly stoked with the new evil twin 57 tbt is the only way to go. The board rides awesome even better than the 10/11 evil twin a truly all mountain board! Yeah for it !!!!!!

Bryan P

“First time on a TBT board...1112 157 Airobic. Catch an edge? No. I will never go back. Thanks Bataleon.

Clemens

“after 12 years of snowboarding I was searching for something new... I found the Whatever158w_1112 and i really loved it after the first turns! you didn't promise to much. it rotates that easy (edges never got caught), it is smooth to carve, edges cut into icy slopes like a hot knife and also in powder it is also great. this is snowboarding!!!”

Bernard Sonke

“The past week I've been riding powder, park, crappy forest paths, slush and some icy halfpipes. No matter what I threw at my Evil Twin 157 11/12 and no matter what the conditions were ... the board just handled it! TBT helped me out during some sketchy landings and makes the board switch sides fast as lightning without catching edge at all! One word for this: AWESOME! Thx Bataleon!”

RilesWithSoul

“I didn't believe you guys but my Airobic handled 4ft of pow pretty damn good for being a jib board.

Jan

“Just got my new Evil Twin AE for free because my old Evil Twin had some shit on the base. i love guarantee! TBTs the shit!

Mike

“Rode my 157w Goliath yesterday, and now I am extremely hooked. Tried taking a jump on the slope and made a sketchy landing. Without TBT i would have face planted. But the TBT save me :D Yeah 4 It!!

P-rock

“Went out and bought a bataleon Goliath 157 wide, best choice of my life. Never riding anything but bataleon, so sweet, so stable, no downside.

Maarten

“Just tried my Goliath and it was mind blowing. Piste, powder, park...it just shreds everything. I'm really hooked to Bataleon-TBT and will never buy another board. Keep up the good work guys. YEAH FOR IT!

Riles

“Loved seeing Gulli ride the feel better in TB20, after he breaks his disaster!!

mike D

“I have been riding since 1987 and TBT is the most fun thing I have ever been on! YEAH FOR IT!

chris

“First week i rode TBT i managed my first 360, now did my first 540 thanx to bataleon handing confidence to no edge catching on under/ overrotation. sadly board is almost wrecked, but i am sure i find another awesome evil twin - yeah for it!

Jay

“So i got to try a Fun.Kink last year and let me say it was one of the best feeling boards ive ever rode! It could shred pretty much anything (park, groomers, backcountry booters, and even deep deep pow!) Im looking into buying a 2012 Bataleon for this year so i thought i'd get some feed back from you guys on which would be best for me. Im 125 lbs, just over 6 feet tall, and have a boot size of 10.5. I live in B.C, Canada so im looking for a board that can handle some deep pow, and will jib down the main runs, with the odd park lap through the day.

Thanks guys :)”

Mark

“Yea boi! Finally took my Funkink out on the white stuff. Was getting greets for the board from staff and guest's before I even hit the snow! Just getting over an ankle injury but this board still felt a dream. Smooth, sharp turns, spins like a nutter without catch and the flex is sic! Day one but loving it already. Big ups from NZ Bataleon! Tu meke”

atros

“Yesterday, it was my birthday, I put my Goliath aside and tried my brand new Undisputed. Freshies + Undisputed = epicness! TBT forever!”

Shaun McGuinness

“I bought The Jam 2 years ago and have never looked back. It took a little while to get used to TBT but even when I have caught an edge I can regain control and don't end up head first in the pow! - awesome! I live in the French Pyrenees and we have a lot of flat sections of piste which freaked me a bit with my old board but with The Jam it's just plaon sailing:)”

alan tilstone

“I will never go back to any other board ever:) the best board ive ever ridden,...... dont knock it till you try it:)”

Special_Blend11

“With the Jam you'll never catch edge!!! TBT is awesome”

“Just ordered my 149 fun kink soo pumped to rip up some rails”

“can`t wait to get my 148 disaster;)”

Mr. R

“I have just recieved the new omni 161. so stoked, can't wait to spend 5 months in Fernie with it and my 2010/11 Airobic 151 :D

TBT for life.”

Stu Cant

“So i've been riding my brand new 154 funkink for the past couple of weeks now and what else can i say but wow!
Actually I can say more...
I did have a 155 evil-twin (smiley face one) which i loved and still do but the funkink with it's softer flex and blunted tip n tail is awesome! it has great pop twice the height for half the effort. more butter than an obese artery and can ride thru pretty much anythin i put in front of it. the only bad thing i can say about is at high speeds it does tend to chatter a bit but hey it's a 154 and i'm 6ft1. Bataleon, since i first rode the evil twin at a demo day at cardies in 07 you've had a customer for life and my new stick only cements that decision!!
YEAH FOR IT!!!!!!!”

Special_Blemd11

“Demo'd the jam earlier this year finally ordered one of the last 6 of the jams. Can't wait to ride the board again! BATALEON keepbupbthe work.”

Kwristofr Moye

“Oh man, wtf.

Its the middle of summer and I'm wating snowboard vids on the daily.

Can't wait to get on a new Bataleon deck, new art and sapes looks sick.

Be ready.”

tucker huntoon

“I love the tbt. im never going back to a flat board”

aberbrawler

“I ride the 11 evil twin classic... i love this board, i love the base. Things i've noticed are. Stiffness / Flex rating rates the boards more flexible than they really are. I am liking the new 2012 flex ratings as I feel they will be more accurate. Other thing is the base seems a little slow. Found myself struggle to keep up on the flatter traverse runs. Having said that the pros out do the cons by far. Nice and buttery but when you need them, the edges hold true on bigger kickers. Didn't even take a full run to get use to the playful TBT. Can't wait for the pipe to be built down here in Australia to see how it performs in there.”

saroogi mac

“I gave a review on Powderroom.net on the Bataleon Distortia here's an excerpt from it: The Distortia is a park board, true twin, positive camber with Bataleon (and now Lobster) signature TBT. I fell in love with it as soon as I stood on it...turn initiation is easy, but solid. By comparison with other boards, this one demands a little more persuasion; it's not a noodle, and to me, that's a strength! Quick hybrid base for hitting indoor and outdoor kickers...(although not as quick as some sintered boards); and extremely solid on landings, you feel supported and confident to try much more. Where a lot of friends orientate towards rocker cambers, Distortia remains ALIVE with its positive camber popping away downhill, and almost springloaded nose and tail, which allows you load ollies to the max and injects life into your riding, however, it is ingeniously coupled with TBT; which forgives you for making a faux pas on a box or (some) mogles! Summing up Strengths: Poppy and lively camber; good amount of tortional flex for initiating different turns; right amount of flex for loading ollies; solid park board for hitting kickers stable on landings; quick hybrid base; forgiving TBT; NOT A NOODLE!
The Distortia is a beautiful, epic park board that has improved my riding. It's not a limp wristed noodle that has a nervous breakdown everytime you hit a landing; it has your back. Due to its solid construction and forgiving TBT, it will egg you on to try more; which you will.”

Kieran

“these boards rock, i just got an evil twin and its rad, super buttery but carves like a fiend and the flex is perfect. takes a while to get used to, especially if you're riding park but its well worth it. bottom line, buy this board if you want to ride better.”

ethan

“Bataleon is awesome,Evil Twin best board i have ever ridden...love you guys so much getting bataleon tattoed on my leg lol”

michiel hoeyberghs

“IT WAS GREAT! when i bought it and tested it for the first time (in austria) i coundn't belive i was riding it, it feels so smooth, it responded to all the things i wantet to.
riding bataleon on this perfect snow was like heaven. i didn't regret a minute of it.”

joe

“a friend of mine had one and i didnt really think much of it having not tryed it, then got one off ebay on a whim. Now i've had a few snowboards, in order, morrow, trans, salomon, burton, prior, bataleon, nidecker, seveniker(cant spell that one)

by far, the bataleon is my favourite board for everything on the piste, i even found it fun off piste, and its a bloody (evil)twin park board!!!! When i come to getting a new board it will be another bataleon, infact i might get a goliath anyway, if you sold a tapered, rockerd nose pintail i would have that as well

ive not met that many people on the piste with bataleons, but whenever i do we give each other a nod, and normally have the 'ill never have another snowbaord again' talk

incase you have'nt guessed, im a fan”

Ed Jones

“Just Wow :) I first heard about Bataleon from a good Japanese friend of mine 4 years ago and hadn't seen them before, then again in NZ 2 years ago from a Czech friend. The after hearing the Helgason boys are using TBT on their boards I thought I'd give them a go.

I've picked up an Evil Twin 156 Wide and it's amazing! Way faster than I thought it would be, nice and soft for mucking around, holds the edge solidly through hard carves and most importantly is a bag of fun! The TBT takes a teeny bit of getting used to, but as soon as I started charging full bore it felt just like a regular board. Can't wait to take it into the park once the Australian season goes into full swing.

Thanks Bataleon! And thanks TBT!!!!”

Lo

“I worked as a snowboard instructor for an entire season on my Goliath. An amazing board. Could teach students from every diffrent level with it, beginner, powder, carving and park. The board also made me ride much better. One little downside, the deck damages a bit faster than other boards. This however has ofcourse no influence on the riding.
Thanks alot! from Amsterdam”

daniel

“I'am a 49 yo beginner, this is my 2nd board. I love freeride, and the omni gives me this secure and forgiving feeling at high speed, I feel very confident with it, and it seems that I can do anything with it. the only thing is that the rear leg is working a lot for me(maybe because I'm and old thing...).
Daniel FRANCE”

Old Griz

“Took my new Jam out this season to an icy week in the 3 valleys with my brother and his new aluma-cored top-end freeride deck from another 'B'rand. After a warm up couple of runs, a race was clearly on the cards.
When he finally made it down, I tried not to gloat.
This board is lightning, love it.
If you want to pootle arround or do little pops, forget it- get something else. If you want to go huge and hoon all over the hill, get the Jam. No question.”

BIG

“Riot159 2007/08
Been riding this for jibs and the park, and also the obligatory blast down the POW.!! Speed is my deal and although this board is a 159 it will hold me 'tight' when things get 'loose'.! i own other cambered boards that will perform well in pow and at speed but just dont forgive you while riding the rest of the mountain due to the TBT on the Riot159. also rode rockered boards but didn't feel so secure while gunning it.
So now its time for a new ride and i cant wait to see the new boards for 2012 from BATALEON cause for me the versitility of
'CAMBERED TBT' is the way to go.”

Carissa

“I've just started jibbing and had a demo on the Distortia. I nailed my first ever backside boardslide first shot. TBT makes it so easy to play around without catching edges all over the place. Buying mine later today. Yeah 4 it baby. x.”

VANESSA MCCARTHY

“Bataleon Snowboard Fun Kink 153cm
Wow I demo-d this board over the weekend and what an amazing fun board this is for a girl. It holds edges with no wash in the back, and also allowed me to pop ollies with ease... unbelievable difference getting air on this board. I couldnt believe how easy, enjoyable and awesome this board was to ride. I own a g$u, a b@&$)(-n and a s-/:;($n. I'm seriously considering buying this board... I was searching for it online and came across this site and just had to give a great review for you guys... its the best most fun board ive ridden yet. Blown away.”

“I love them. I'm a proud owner of Evil Twin and Airobic. Most of my friends ride Bataleon. We are some kind of sect i guess.”

I have been to Val thorens and Les deux alps with it and for those two times i left my 650 euros L&b T@#h D!@k S!@#$s at home....:D
Super cool board,fast, precise, quick and smooth turning and good edge hold:)
Good job bataleon

“Power steering.
Agile.
Revolotionary.

Rode a Demo board today at Crystal Mtn. WA. Robin from Mt. Si. Board and Skate set me up, and wow this is transformational. Robin was super helpful getting me set up, and I bought the demo board after getting a ride. I also rode a F@#$ demo board with rocker-style, and the Tripple base blew it away. I'm an avid carver/free rider, and this board turns on a dime. I can even navigate the bumps with this due to the responsiveness, that I was unable to do on my K# Z$%^&*n. I think you guys have a formula for success here. I feel like this is definitely a revolution in boarding and could definitely accelerate entry level snow boarders to carving level much quicker than with standard boards. I've been riding since the late 90's, buying a new board about every 5 years, and this is the first board that has made any real difference. Great work. I'd be happy to help promote your brand out here in the pacific northwest. It's awesome in the "Cascades Concrete" snow conditions.

“for 3 years i've been riding a my park board and i´ve always had probloms with landing spins. Last week I tried the old smile model of ewil twin from my friend who gave it to me bec. its pretty much destroyed and after i tried it i was just like: what the f**k, it seems to me that this board will land the tricks for you...”

binni

“i got to try out fun kink 161 last mounth and it rocks. The TBT is a super fun way of rideing . it slashes thru pow and carves like an animal super fun in the park and dont even mention riding it switch i didnt even know i could do that b 4 fun kink tnx ill be buying tbt next”

Richard Scholl

“Just want to say that everything you said about the TBT was correct. I bought a Kink US Version and it was awesome. It felt twice as fast on the straights and handled edge to edge like nobody's business. Thank you for coming up with the best designed snowboard eva! Riding Bataleon only from now on! Thanks again. Richard Scholl NYC, NY”

Alex vlasto

“Bought a 2011 airobic 155 this winter, and I LOVE IT!!! I used to ride burton, I had a couple of boards; both of which I have sold. The airobic is the softest board, with awesome pop! The TBT is undeniably the best technology breakthrough for snowboarding since the snowboard. Smile, it's snowboarding!”

Rob McVey

“I got an ET Classic 159 this season and I love it!! Road my burton the other day.. Did I mention that I got an ET CLASSIC 159!!! For sale one flat board...after TBT you won't even want to ride flat on rocks... Looking for used TBT for preseason and late spring...
TBT and snow is all I need!!!”

Seth

“TBT is the BEST!!!! I thought I loved snowboarding until I got my bataleon, now I know what it means to love snowboarding! amazing everywhere I have ridden it! Yeah for it!!!”

Scotty

“So I was at sugar bowl the other day first day back riding in a month on my brand new airobic 154 2012. someone stole it out of the back of the truck before i got a chance to use it. Bummer. but the artist series evil twin is bad to the bone and its got some chick gettin choked on it! I just rode it this weekend in grenade games but it rides really well in pow too. Keep your fluids up and smile, its snowboarding.”

Rich Smith

“Love my evil Twin Classic I had a quiver of snowboards k2 park star ,lib Skate banana, and a rome agent, I sold The all, I only want to ride my evil twin now once you go tbt theres no turning back, This is the way snowboarding should be , FUN”

“tried out the evil twin 11/12 154 on saturday and ordered it the same day. awesome board i love it YEAH FOR IT”

Philipp

“Who is Jack Burton, and why does he made those second class-boards? Went to Kronplatz (Italy) with my Goliath. Just Amazing!! Its the perfect Board if you want to carve on the pists and have fun in the park. The TBT saved me a few bad landings and the pop is super!!! Yeah for it!”

AdstarUK

“Hey guys. . . . . Finally got to use my Goliath in Sauze d'oh, Italy. What can i say. . . Simples. Best feeling ever. One amazing board and its not just the tbt as the pop is awesome. Bataleon is my only board of choice! Cheers guys dont sway from the tbt on ALL your boards.”

Dee

“Just picked up a Fun.Kink US Edition (Rocker! LOL!) and it kills it! Totally not limited only to the park as I was all over the mountain inbetween trees and all over steeps! I love this board! HUUUGE smile on my face at the end of the day! Yea for it! ... now send me some stickers please! ahha..”

Ben Goliath

“Hi Dudes!
Bought a 2011 Goliath wide 161 and I LOVE this piece of Wood...
So Amazing. First uncommon feeling...than my face showed the same smile as on your hoods...now I understand your claim "Smile!" Before I rode a n&*^o t#$m wide (good board) but the goliath floats better, is easier and more relaxed to ride, esp. on "ziehwege" (Hate them!!) only on Powder i hadnt yet the chance to try, but im sure it´ll work as fine as on all other conditions! I BELIEVE!
Dudes, great job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Euan mclean

“I had this years US edition funk kink but it got stolen last week in Alpe D'huez :( totally awesome board and I'm in love with TBT, gutted I had to hire for the rest of the week. Until I can save money for next seasons ET I'm gonna try bud on an 08/09 ET I've spotted on fleabay, hope the board feels as good!”

Ryan, Banff

“I just started boarding this year. While checking around local ads, I came across an 08 Goliath with the clockwork orange graphic(wicked flick). Anyway been out about 10 times now, and switched up with one of my friends boards for a few runs. it was a ride something or other. anyway I kept catching edges and it just wore me out after a few runs. I am glad to be riding TBT goliath and will be buying a new goliath this year. Thanks Bataleon!”

Le Cornichon Volant

“i bought a BATALEON EVIL TWIN two months ago,
this saturday i went with my new board in french Alps.

First run on the EVIL TWIN = stocked!
after that, every run was so fun!
the TBT makes me so confident,i'm trying new stuffs without the fear to catch edges and hurt me on the ground.

Edges to edges is really fast.
the board is really stable, i was like god on mountain with it!

A lot of pop.
and a great smile on my face all day long!

i think i find THE BOARD!
can wait to buy the 2012 FEELBETTER model for my girlfriend (after this day she really want try TBT), and maybe i'll think to buy the 2012 DISASTER model to complete my quiver.

Thank you BATALEON for your products!
So much fun.
YEAH FOR IT!

NICO

“i will buy the new EVIL TWIN 11/12 in october. i have had an evil twin 08/09 an a goliath 08/09 and i still love it YEAHFORIT!!!”

Klaus

“just checked out the new riot 2012 and it´s sick. the best twin i´ve ever ridden. i own the riot 2008 and it is incredible nice, but the new one is even better. i think everyone out there will be stoked about the line up boards of 2012!”

WesMoTron

“Rode my ET Classic for the first time today up here in Alaska, It was like riding a cloud! Old boards just look like planks of fancy wood next to TBT! Through the fast runs in the woods, hits off kickers, or tucking down slopes, my Bataleon maintained with poise. The buttering is unreal! Im sold, TBT for life, Yeah for it Brah!”

wobble

“I used to ride B%#}+n c^%#]*m and loved the board, but last year I decided I fancied giving the Goliath a go after reading the reviews, so I popped down to my local store and bought one. I took it over to Tignes and it was fantastic, we had deep powder and the board was excellent. After that I took it over to Morzine/Avoriaz where the conditions were icy and the piste compacted hard. Again the Goliath held it's own and it kept me upright on some hard runs.
I'm a convert to this type of board and recommend if you haven't tried it then give it a go, it truely is an all mountain classic.”

Riley King

“my first day, first thought on the evil twin was GODDAMN!!!! Everyday every run is still GODDAMN!!!!”

claudio

“this year i've used for 6 days an old fun.kink 157 08\09 with tbt..i can only say: i love it and i love you for doing TBT!!!! next year i'll get a goliath 160w! if i'll find it..”

Mike H

“After 13 years of riding I was curious enough to buy a Goliath 57 this year. I'd read that it might feel a bit sluggish from edge to edge but frankly that's crap. Just back from 3Valleys where its seen powder, corduroy, icy moguls and kickers and it made mincemeat of the lot. Can't wait to ride it again and would highly recommend TBT to anyone. Good work guys.”

Scoobydude2002

“I used to ride the first gen K# w&^%$n with the rocker in it and I thoght that board was sick. Well two years after owning the board it got stollen off the roof of my car lol. Best part is they stole it by taking my locked roof rack off my car. Well I did some research on boards and was going to get a lib tech or a gnu but then saw a lot of good things about Bataleon. Went to my local store and picked one up and went riding that day. TBT is the best thing that has ever been invented. I was off for a month because of the stollen board and I would of caught an edge a couple of times on my old rocker board but TBT saved my life. I hit a couple of rails but didn't hit too manys since I wanted to get used to the board but I did hit a table top and down box and thing slides like crazy. I was having so much fun I was yelling YEAH FOR IT!! lol So if you buyers don't beleive what Bataleon has to say and still don't beleive what I have to say well your just gonna have to buy one of those corprate boards that you will not be happy with. Thank you for making snowboarding what it is meant to be. FUN!!”

Stefan

“This friday I finally rode my Bataleon Goliath 153 that I bought last year. Let me say that TBT is simply amazing!!! The advantages of camber with none of the disadvantages. The catch-free sensation is beyond belief. Next year i'm surely getting a Disaster 148 and maybe a Undisputed 161. Yeah for it!”

Mikk

“Went and got myself Fun kink Us edition 153. Seriously, what the heck is that witchcraft!? That thing is the best thing i have EVER ridden. It's amazing how fun that board is. Since i hurt my leg pretty bad a few weeks back i thought my season was over, snowboarding just was not fun anymore. Needless to say that your board changed it. YEAH FOR IT!”

Doug

“TBT IS THE BEST THING SINCE EDGES!!
Had a warrantee issue that you guys handled with no hiccups or anything, even sent tracking numbers and the delivery of the new Goliath came in less than a week!!
I was hesitant about riding a shorter board at first, but this 157 wide TEARS everything up!!! park laps are a BREEZE!! Switch feels totally natural!!! edge to edge is fantastic and tbt gives it a CATCH FREE ride!!its so light I hardly feel it hiking and when I strap it on in the wait deep pow we've had, its so easy to lean back, you hardly have to! In the cliffs and trees it whips around with tons of power in the tail and you can totally commit to ANY line!! TBT IS THE BEST THING SINCE EDGES!!!!! EVERYONE NEEDS A BATALEON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm definitely getting another Bataleon next season, stoked for the 2011/2012 line!!”

HiTz 780

“so I finally bought a Bataleon Airobic, this board has made me a better rider! Perhaps its just the placebo effect but hot damm this board rides nice. Edge to edge, no worries. I've been working on my switch riding and I would have fallen way more if it wasn't for the TBT. This is my first year in the park so it's given me some confidence in hitting up the most basic rails and table tops. Bataleon TBT ftw!


Extremely grateful,


HiTziLLa”

“I was a shity rider skechy couldn't control my board or speed ever since I switched to bataleon twin. My rideing has completly changed now I'm riping up the mountain harder than most of my friends once u step on to these board ur changed an u kno bataleon is the right board for any type of rideing”

Travis Stoddard

“Stepped like a weapon on an enemy+++...... Neva shralp on any other brand again!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks Bataleon and TBT.....Jus Sayin!”

Stuart Jones

“Your boy Matt Taylor in NZ got me on a 157 Goliath and im not going back. Just returned for Niseko, Japan, and the TBT killed it in the pow and between the trees in the morning and ate the kickers and the rails in the pm...truth be told the TBT saved my arse more than once, love it, and thank you Matt. Get On Board!”

TBTLover

“2010 Undisputed is king. Sick!!!”

“Just finished my first day with my brand new ET Classic 155. TBT is sick! Got used to it in a very short time and it improved my confidence with tricks immediatly! You guys just found a new life-customer! YEAH FOR IT!”

MRC

“airobic 151, best board... ever!”

harlan

“this is the freakin DEAL. got the 154 artist ed. even though it's twin it will ride everything and anything... just keep it away from your sister... anyway i guess i'm a bataleon man for the rest of my life. you guys RULE”

Delicious

“ET 155 <-- Surprisingly good crud board!”

Courtney Howard

“161 Jam Wide user. Definately fun. Takes a little getting used to at first, but super fun now. Sometimes 50-50's slip off earlier that a regular base if you are not square centered on the rail. I faceplanted so hard trying to butter my old board after getting used to TBT.”

Tom

“Just got back from a beautiful 'Yeah For It!' day today. My Omni 167 just slayed the glades of Jay Peak all damn day. I jacked up my back knee a few weeks ago and had to keep my weight forward, but the Omni refused to sink. Surfing through the pow was so smooth and effortless it felt like I was in a trance. Well, until I had to snap back to reality to quickly zig and zag and then zig-zag through all of the trees. No worries though, I was edge-to-edge in no time. Even the branch that cut my face couldn't wipe the smile off of it. Untouched pow and a Bataleon Omni? It's total Zen. On Steroids. Oh, and did I mention? YEAH FOR IT!”

JL

“Had the best day of the season so far riding on a friend's new Goliath. Was absolutely sold on TBT and in Bataleon until I noticed that the top sheet was laden with nicks and some peeling. I have never seen a board so chewed up from a day of riding before. That said, I would likely still fork over the cash and deal with the repairs to ride one of these bad boys again.”

“Just rode my Goliath for the first time at sierra. I gotta say I don't think i will be going back. the TBT is amazing. the edge to edge is effortless so fun and fast. im with Bataleon forever! you need to buy a bataloen!”

Timo T.

“Just tested the new Evil Twin and honestly... I'm absolutely sttoked about TBT =D it's impossible to catch an edge if u don't want to. next ime i will test the Funkink and will get one of them!
thx!”

Julie Attewell

“Just got back from a week in Avoriaz, although a severe lack of snow, my Distortia made up for it!! Unlike any board ive ever riddin, made me fall in love with boarding all over again!!! Loved not catching any egdes and laughed when everyone else fell over!!!!
AWSOME board!!!!!”

FluffyBeanie

“Just got back from 2 weeks riding Marmot Basin with my brand new Evil Twin Classic. Before trying TBT I was the world's most rubbish rider, nervous, jittery and slow. While I am not setting any land speed records, thanks to TBT my confidence has soared! Felt great on the flats, stable and relaxed... My husband has been trying to get me to switch to skiing for years, thanks Bataleon - I now don't need to!”

James

“Bought a 2008 Goliath 164w second-hand and have just got back from riding it all over Val d'Isere. Unbelievable experience and had such a great week of boarding. Will be upgrading to the 2012 model next year f'sho! Thanks Bataleon”

Ad O

“I wanne say thanx for giving me the fun back in snowboarding. I have a goliath its a perfect board. Keep up the good work.

Ad”

Jason

“I bought my 2011 The Jam 157 and took out to the Porte du Soleil region just last week. Rode it everywhere, and it was effortless. TBT really does work and goes from edge to edge beautifully - and no nasty catchiness at all. Best investment I've made out of all my current gear!”

Emily m.

“I baught my First Bataleon last year and it was the best ride i ever had! sadly that board got damaged but i was able to get it replaced. The Bataleon crew was AWSOME to work with, to get a replacement! they'er the best!”

Jaydoh & Olga

“We LOVE TBT. OK. I got us set up with a Violenza for my lady and a Goliath 164 for myself. It took one day on TBT to fall in love. My Goliath is easily the best snowboard I have ever ridden. Handles anything at speed. Perfect flex, Waist width - Looks are killer. It just makes snowboarding more FUN. That's what it's all about. I found it super easy to spin, butter what have you. I could do more on that board with less effort than my previous ride. Whistler has some pretty big terrain and TBT made it super fun to ride pretty much anything that came our way.

Cheers!”

Tim

“Just ordered an Evil Twin 157.... even ordering is making me stoked :)
Can't wait to ride this puppy!!”

“half march i bring my fun kink usa edition to his roots. Hope he like the powder. Bataleon people! Movie is comming end april then i be back in holland mmmmm do you now park city?? i be there first week.
bataleon for ever and a ocz vertex2 hdd”

Sander

“Just came back from Val Thorens. First time out on my new Jam 161 wide. TBT truly delivers what it promises. It's stable at high speeds and easy to change direction.
If you think of buying a new board, get one of these!!! It's awesome to ride and has wicked graphics.”

Jonathan Froggatt

“Ok. I'll tell it like it is. I've had 2 weeks flow on a new shape Evil Twin 154. Previous to Bataleon ive ridden other 'normal' boards. TBT is VERY different to a 'normal' board. It will take a few days to get used to ..BUT.. When you start to chill with the flavour, you'll be styling those carves and bumps like you never have before. It sound like sales patter I know, but TBT has truly for me re-defined snowboarding. Its wicked' 'tings all the way. Snowboarding should be fun and believe.. TBT will put a smile on your face.. sod, flat-base-edge 'you want some shizzle in your life.. its all about flat base-TBT-edge.. Its a new dimension. Its a beautiful ride. I got my girlfriend a 143 Distortia at the same time as my Evil Twin.. She's only been on a snowboard for 1 weeks and she's allready buttering the crap out of the mountain ;-) Sketch out landing like you never have before its all DOPE. Hit the hip-flask with your mates, mix with a couple of strong euro beers and have fun. I truly believe that TBT will open up a whole new back of tricks for the boarders out there. Gonna snap up an 151 aerobic as I want a bit more flex than the evil twin for my net trip that thankfully is very soon. The spirit of the mountain is good. F*cking YEAHFORIT!!!”

Thomas

“placed an order for a 157 Batazion but it was sold out. :( it was recomended i check out the Badaleon MJ edition instead, got it in last week rode it this past weekend.. sick board with lots-o-pop super fun board to ride.. cant wait to put some more days on it... yeah4IT, TBT rules”

Daniele

“last sunday i tried for the first time my new shining fun.kink and it rocks dudes! the triple base is the best for riding, my older (other brand) boards sucks! thank you Bataleon i will never leave you! :-) smile it's snowboarding!”

Edwin Scorretti

“This year, I decided to pass to the new airobic that I actually really appreciate it! It has a got pop in Parks and bends well on rails. In the beginning, when you didn't use the TBT I got the sensation as the boards isn't very stable, but when you get used to it, you find it a very special board.
Thanks Bataleon, I love it! :)

liz

“p.s can you please send a demo team to revelstoke!?! would be a super good time. we finally have a dealer but they dont have much selection...”

liz

“thank you for bringing back the disclaimer. really it's what sold me on trying your boards all those many years ago! still rockin' bataleon enemy and yah for camber!”

JayP

“Hi @all,
I´ve test my bataleon fun kink US Edition last week in Hoch-Ybrig and I won´t have another board it´s so amazing! The Fun kink rooooooox! I can just say I will never ride an another board!

YEAH FOR IT!”

Tom

“My Bataleon 09/10 Goliath is the best board ive ever ridden. Used to have B)$^&*s back in the day and they suck so much. My friends all have L@#$s and I just laugh at them when they go on about their fruit shaped boards. After riding TBT you will never go back. Felt weird when I started- kinda like surfing. But in a very good way. Snowboarding is much more fun now.”

Deeman

“Rockin the Fun Kink - US edition and it kicks ass! Best board on the market and freakin awesome!!!”

LukyKWP

“Finally the dream came true, I investigated the whole year, I gathered the money and I bought the best snowboard in the world ... I love my Bataleon FUN.KINK:)...yeah for it!!!”

jon perry

“shit is tight guys! keep it coming. love the videos love the boards when are you guys coming to mt.hood if ever????

A. K.

“My Airobics 159 is Geat! Mass of pop and safe landings in fast rotation jumps, easy to hit the park. Yeah 4 It, TBT rules !”

Chris M

“Rode my first tbt (airobic) as from 28th and loved it from the very first run... didnt believe 3° can make such a difference. got a good amount of pop and good buttering without being afraid of edge catching. Just made me more confident. Laid down my first BS 360s and even one 540 with it! I just love it, won't ever buy anything else but bataleon. you guys should really start to create bindings as good as ur boards!!
YEAH FOR IT!”

Greg

“Now guys, let's be nice to Rodriegez...he probably didn't have any snow. Still, though, I'm pretty sure TBT works on everything but granite. It definitely worked on Rodriegez' mom.”

pizolboarder

“i`ve got a 08/09 goliath. it`s three years old an still great thank you bataleon
and mr. rodriegez you suck”

“This board sucks.”

ced.rec

“Hello bataleon friends ,

I come from france , I had my first board this x mas and it" s a Bataleon fun kink 157 2010 .
I love this board . We had 2 days of riding for the first time of the season 2010/2011.
i didn't have the opportunity to try JIB's (i'm not a very good rider) but it was really easy to take it on hand .It" s really a funny board , very light and flexible , the shape is very good to take of the slopes .On puff it"s harder but not impossible .
I'm really excited about going back !!
Have a ride !! Have a smile !!

Sam(antha)

“ordered my airobic 147 and got it two dayzz later! mashed the park, freaked out over TBT and went stupid dumb dumb all over the mountain. I BELEIVE!!!”

Ethan

“just ordered my first bataleon board. cant wait to try it out, i have hear a shit load of good things about tbt and cant wait to go riding, i am getting the evil twin so hopefully give back some more postive stuff after i take it for a ride”

Szymon

“fuc*ing amaizing!;D”

Nils R.

“Got my first TBT Board this year. After riding 8 years on flat boards it first felt loose and a bit strange! But after a morning of riding i got used to it and it really works. Carving and buttering goes perfectly without catching edges..
Riding the park went good too, but tail or nose grind/pressing feels different to normal flat boards..it feels better cause you're shure no egde will catch the box!!!
TBT works perfect in slushy, icy and park sourroundings! Thanks Bataleon for this sick tech!! YEAH FOR IT :)))
I bought the Evil Twin New Shape 154 in Mayrhofen (Zillertal) and if you're not shure if TBT works you often can rent a TBT Test board at your local bataleon dealer! But be warned..if you try it, you'll get adiccted and never will get anything else!!!

YEAH FOR IT!!!”

adam

“got last years project green for 2 hundo... best deal ever, snappy response, just stiff enough to be faster than chris johnson and that setback makes surfing pow mmm mmm good. nice compliment to the evil twin.”

Laura C

“I bought my first Bataleon this season, I've been riding for a long time and I finally found my match. We're soulmates! I think I wanna marry it! So responsive, and stable. It's truly like no other. Thanks team! Keep up the rad work <3”

GREEDY-GOLIATH

“superyeah for it!
bataleon goliath is THE snowboard!!
TBT works great and it's the funniest board ever EVER tried!
a stupid smile on my face all day long while riding my bata!!
YOUU ROCK!”

“Shredding the 59 Omni this year...gives me a warm fuzzy feeling when I think about it..Northstar wud up!!!!”

Cheezsandwhiches

“Trying out my Evil Twin Classic tomorrow. Can't wait to poo my pants. YEAH FOR IT!”

Pete

“@speez

dude.. what are you trying to say here... you like it playfull and the pop but you want it softer, while at same time you think its shaky at high speed.. then it needs to press more and increase stability on high speed by doing what? making it softer? Don't thnk that can be combined bro.

I love my ET. It has it all.. power, flex, foregiveness and great all mountain freestyle abilities..

Derek Robitaille

“Well let's just say that Bataleon makes the best snowboards ever!!!! I recently purchased the 2011 Airobic 147cm and finally got to ride it tonight at Grouse Mountain in North Vancouver, BC. It was so easy to ride and flexes really easy and gives you so much more air and the board overall was really really really fast. I let my friend try it out and he had a blast over it and was pretty much jizzing in his snowpants. He wanted to ride it the rest of the night and is now begging to get one for a Christmas gift. Thanks for making the best snowboards on earth!!!!”

speez

“TBT is pretty sick tech..im a fresh owner of 2011 fun.kink 149 and its very playful,responsive with a loaded pop..BUT its not that stable as u might think! in high speed its shakin because of too narrow mid base flat..as well as not as good stability on rails..it could be also lil bit softer because of presses..well u can make it press fo sho..but dont wanna see other boards if this one is nearly most soft! ..so hope u will help this..love bataleon for that forgiving feel..but there is always something to improve! peace.one love”

Tiffany

“Dear Bataleon,
Me again! My fun.kink is amazing!!! It's perfect in the powder and pop is super fun, thanks again!!!

Alex Garcia

“Ok, so here's my story. I was able to take my Goliath 157 out on Thanksgiving up in norcal when they got that 8 foot dump. No park riding, just pow. It was sketchy. I wasn't used to it. I didn't know if I made the right choice. I was scared! Then, this past weekend I FINALLY made it out to big bear and KILLED it. A solid two day binge of park riding. It felt like last season never ended! First try, front 7's, front 9's and finally, after being frustrated all last season, some corked 5's! TBT, it's no joke! I'm stoked on the season and glad this Godsend of a board is mine. YEAHFORIT!!!”

Adam Castanier

“So I was finnaly able to get out on my Evil Twin. From the first time trying to strap in and it being very loose under foot I thought I would have problems with it being to loose like some of the reverse cambers on the market, but when I got up the lift and took my first ever run on TBT, I know that from that moment on I would Yeah for it. It gripped when I wanted it to and floated when I didn't want the grip. Tbt was like having a board that knew what I wanted it to do, the perfect all around mind reading board. If there was any downfall of riding Tbt it is that not everyone rides it, and I think if they did we may have world peace.”

Koen

“WOW!!! Went for a test ride yesterday with my new evil twin.. Normally I ride a s&$?! c@&). well, I just sold it. The evil twin is an insane board and the tbt tech realy makes it no effort catching edges, landings, curves...
I LOVE MY BATALEON!!
Thanx !!”

Giova

“Just back from Folgarida with my new Goliath 157! Great board! Had fun both in powder and making tricks my friends! I will test it soon in the Madonna di Campiglio's snowpark. Thx!”

Andrew F.

“I showed my friend Bataleon one day and he flipped the hell out, he was able to get one before I did but thats cool. He got the Airobic 147 and says it is the best thing hes ever ridden. I want to get the FunKink but dont have the money right now. Anyways I believe in the power of TBT that someday soon "The God" (Mr.B) will grant me with the gift of TBT. TBT-B with you;)”

Tiffany

“Dear Bataleon,

I took out my new Distoria for a rip for the first time this season in Fernie BC, and it was amazing! I've tried different boards, different lengths and flexes, and I have never felt so comfortable shredding on a brand new board...ever. The TBT made everything feel so effortless and fun! I can't wait to try my fun.kink next!

Thanks for the good times!”

harlan

“just ordered a 154 artist edition. i cannot wait to get this board. with so much hype about tbt it obviously couldn't be bad. i'll be the only one of my friends having fun this season i suppose:)”

Sarah W

“WOW! Just ridden my brand new Evil Twin 154 on the hills behind my house in whyteleafe, Surrey UK..... the snows up to my knees.... had so much fun....love my new board.... thank you!”

David Brighton

“It works! I was on the Evil Twin in Flumserberg and I had a full powder day with no problems apart from I don't lift my nose up enough! I was faster than my friend on a Reverse all day! Big shout out to the SnowboardflohMarkt in Zurich! Thanks guys,You've got me getting waaaaaay better!”

brutto_insetto

“Hej! Just wanted to share my impression on Bataleon snowboards!
I've bought (after a whole summer spent looking for a new board to buy) the Evil Twin New 154 light blue. Yesterday I finally got a chance to try it in Madonna di Campiglio, weather conditions were quite horrible, with snow storming in my face almost the whole time, as well as quite strong wind and limited visibility. Aside my bad shape, I really felt the board doing all the buttering almost by herself, I never had to worry about the edges in those nose and tail presses when going from edge to edge. Furthermore the board had a very nice pop and REALLY went up in the pow by herself, even though it were a twin tip.
That aside this baby is at home in the park, been throwing 180 in and out on boxes with real ease, never worryin about catching an edge, and in underotated landings is it very forgiving as well! (saved my ass a couple of times there!)
Definitely a fun board to ride, forgiving and allowing quite a lot of showing off on the crowded slopes! (not to mention that it also improved both my riding switch and confidence in trying tricks, it was just like thinking about things and suddently I could do them!)
One downside? A little stiff, and of course, that I had to go home at the end of the day! Had I the chance, I'd still be there riding!
Can't wait till next week!!!!!!
Love the graphics by the way. And yes, I am in love with this board, thanks Bataleon!
Yeah for it!!”

Big c

“It's true!! It's true!! Believe the hype if your not on a bataleon rockin TBT you are lost!!!! I've been riding bananas for past two seasons until I tried TBT it does everything bataleon claims and is the most fun I have ever had on snow !!! Needless to say m@##$% sold , bataleons stocked!! If u are considering a bataleon not only will u not be disappointed u will be the happiest person alive!!! Smile it's snowboarding!!!! Yaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!”

Jason

“Demoed a Goliath, Omni, and another brand's board yesterday. Both Bataleons were great fun and very easy to ride - after 5 mins I was riding better and more confidently than after 5 weeks on my previous board!

The other brand I tried was also good to ride, but much less relaxing. You really can feel the benefit of TBT on the very first run!

Going back to shop next week to buy The Jam!”

Shred.til.ded

“WOW!!! after upgrading to a wide goliath, I found that the only problem with tbt(washing out on hard heelside carves/slashes) was my gnarly huge feet... this 161W Goliath is the funnest thing i've ever ridden!!!! YEAH FOR IT!!!!

P.S. I agree with CKG... Pat Milbery is killin it!!

Thanks for making the best thing to ever happen to man -snowboarding- even better :)”

CKG

“Goliath is the power jump shiz.
BRING PAT MILBERY TO THE BATALEON TEAM!!!!!
^^ His riding oozes Bataleon Style; Fun and Outside The Box Mindset.
Smile! It's TBT.”

KC Greg

“WOW! 2010 Green board finally strapped to my feet yesterday. Arapahoe Basin in Colorado. TBT threw me off at first moving slow, but I got used to it very quickly. My confidence in speed and stability has NEVER been this high. I moved out here this season to turn my boarding up a notch, guess I just needed some TBT! YEAH FOR IT!!!
P.S. Go buy a Green board, even if you have another one, buy it.”

Rami

“love your boards!! but i didnt get any stickers with your board.. I would love to slap some on my helmet and my "other brand board" lol...
If you got some you can send over that would be awesome!

Scott Anderson

“A few years back a couple of local reps by the names of Daniel Peterson and Ryan Enfield let me borrow a 155 Riot. Best board i ever rode. I was so stoked about Bataleon i bought Daniel's used Evil Twin 159. Never had to buy another pow stick or park stick. Then last years airobic came out. Fell in love all over agian. Super flexy, and still able to ride pow on a 155! impresive for a bigger guy. So thanks Bataleon! Keep up the TBT. Nothin else like it.”

Mike N.

“About Michael Todd's comment: If you are worthless snowboarder it's not boards fault!Over 15.000 people that have a Bataleon board and are happy with it can be wrong because one worthless gay can’t use TBT!!!”

Mario G

“I saw Michael Todd's comment earlier today and I've been disappointed... :) I recommend no one to belive taht s#!t until trying the TBT.
I still hate you guys for specific business reasons, but the feeling I have when riding your boards is just GREEEEAAAAAT!!!”

Michael Todd

“I bought a Goliath last season and I've been disappointed. I wouldn't recommend Bataleon boards to my mates.”

Haze.

“My favorite part about TBT is how smooth, fast, and responsive the board feels when going rail to rail. Snow transforms into clouds, and I feel like I'm Sky surfing my way back to earth.

Edge to edge is super fast and the response of the board is amazing.

“I love my distortia, all my friends want to steal it, 'cause its soooo pretty. And on the techie side i've ridden park, jibbed about and most amusingly for a 147 managed to ride 2 foot deep pow, the triple base definitely helps the float, even for a fun board!!!”

David

“Stuck My Bataleon Decals on today.... Also, Lets annoy skiiers next year as much as we can- Especcialy freeskiiers- OK guys? We Need Shaun White or Tyler Chorlton to say at a media conference that Skiing is crap... Good idea or wat? hahaha”

“i am pumped to get my first bataleon board. i ordered a 161 jam. its the first board i wil own and all this hype better be true. hoping for the best. thanks bataleon”

“Hey! Kansas City here, moving to Denver, needed a new stick. Looked at all sorts of camber/rocker, came across Bataleon and fell in love. So simple. So perfect. Can not WAIT to ride my 2010 Project Green! Heck, I can't even wait to get it delivered and I'm in the middle of a heat wave!”

David

“Got the Board! Limited Edition ET Full yellow Smiley!!! Awesome, just a few scratches cos It was pre-owned, but all good from The Snowboard-Flohmarkt in Zurich. British Riders, Bataleon Forever!”

Sander

“guys, I'm pretty sure you wont, but please: never ever ever ever go bankrupt or we as riders are all shot out of luck and SCREWED!

David

“Hey Guys, Me agin. Getting full yellow smiley ET edition tomoz! !!!! WOOOO!”

David

“I'm getting it either tommorow or Friday. I've touched the base, and man, It just feels like progress. B#$%*n is Shit, N*@#$ is Shit, R*@$# is Shit Everyother Snowboard is a piece of SHIIIIIT!Can't wait to ride with it next season! WOOOO!”

Paul E

“Just ordered the Jam and can't wait to ride it. You guys need a shop in the Reno Tahoe area though!”

Ricky Hanger

“Hi all, I have been riding a Bataleon TBT for the last few years and Its definitely the best board iv ridden, it a shame rental shops dont hire out these boards so more people could see how much difference the TBT makes.
Cheers Bataleon, You've got me hook on TBT

Paul WM

“Just picked up my 2011 Jam, just love that TBT thing. I think for me this sums up the difference between TBT and flat boards. Flat boards are like cars they move on 4 points like a car. No matter how flash they are they all handle very similar and tun in the same way. TBT rides more like a motorbike the weight is in the centre and you can flick it edge to edge real quick, lead it over hard and it just bites. The Jam is so responsive the more you push it the better the ride. I find myself hitting every thing faster and harder just coz I love the pop :)”

“yo dudes, propz to the new site;)
but where are the great WALLPAPERS???
plz get some on ur site!


cheers, daniel”

Grant Hopper

“I have never ridden anything like it, my first ever board was a &#&t0n C*nd$m which apparantly doesn't catch edges, thats not the case, i sprained my wrist because it did catch a wrist, luckily the graphic started peeling and i sent it back to &#&t0n and they have me a store credit, after talking to one of Bataleon's riders Matty, he gave me a Bataleon demo, and i was blown away. I only had 2 runs on it and thats all it took to buy. I bought a Bataleon 153 Fun Kink, it is the most playful fun board I have ever ridden, you get amazing pop, you CAN'T catch an edge, its really flexible and is super light. I have never ridden a board that will actually bounce ur board off an edge.
For me there is no other company in the way of boards,I love my Bataleon Fun Kink and will never ride another brand. Thanks Bataleon
Yea For it! :)”

Onno

“Damn, been riding the good stuff for a couple of years now, last week I had to rent a board (no tbt) and man I missed my goliath! Waiting for the winter now, so I can ride again. YEAH for that!”

Rydog

“TBT is definitely a love or hate thing.I really,really wanted to like TBT because the theory surrounding it makes perfect sense and it DOES carve like a dream! However, I'm just not feeling it for freestyle.I don't like not being able to feel my edges underfoot on snow/boxes/rails/run-ins, guess I've just been ridin good old flat boards too long.I would recommend testing one out to see if it's right for you before you buy.”

Al Kingsbury

“Feel like I've won a prize being one of 200 to own the batazion. Only thing that could replace my funkink.
Blessed the TbT stable.
Jah bless mr b”

Thomas van den Hoff

“About two weeks before leaving for my first snowboarding holiday of last season a friend of mine showed me the TBT-clip on youtube.
Stunned and impressed I started looking for stores that sold Bataleon boards. After some serious thinking (i had recently purchased a new board already) I descided to go with my gut-feeling and buy a Omni 163.

In Sölden Austria I strapped on and shredded down hill like on an auto-pilot mode. Absolutely phenomenal. I've been snowboarding for 12 years now, tried several boards and this omni 163 beats all by far!

In my second boarding week I took my board to the parks in Fiss, Austria and this is where difference was unmistakebly showing. Sticking jumps, getting more air all the benefits as presented in the youtube clip are absolutely true.

My TBT Omni 163 is here to stay and I can't see me riding anything else than TBT from now on.

Yeah for it! ;-)”

Nick

“Would never ride anything but Bataleon now. I'm an intermediate, but snowboarding always seemed harder work than skating used to be. Soon as I got me a 157W Goliath it was just like skating bowls back in the 80s - no worries about edges catching, just focus on the next move. As a beginner to kickers and rails etc it made such a difference to be able to just think where you wanted to go and hit it straight, plus not worry about slightly sketchy landings knowing I could stick it and ride out clean. Knowing this means you soon actually start riding clean too. Had to sell my Goliath unfortunately but now got a 10/11 Evil Twin on order!”

Charlie

“After a few years trying out lots of different boards, I was unable to find anything I truly felt comfortable on and started to wonder if I should learn to ski. That changed when I picked up a used 09 Goliath and headed off to Tignes for the week. So forgiving, goes exactly where you want without thinking, very quick edge to edge, great float in powder, no chance of catching an edge on anything... I'm completely sold. I have rediscovered my snowboarding mojo. Thanks Bataleon!”

“ride an mj 157 and i can tell it's the hot shit.totally lucky.in 25 years of experience i've never ridden something cool like that.props!”

Rick Deans

“Well the season is starting to draw to a close even here in Scotland which has had a phenomenal snowdrop this year and so it's time to take a break and give some advice... I started riding a number of years ago and have been lucky enough to try and ride loads of boards, some great boards, some expensive boards and some phenomenally good boards even from other companies. That said when I first started riding I wanted a fun flexible freestyle focussed board that I could use everywhere I tried Burton, Rome, Salomon to name a few then eventually after selling all these others stumbled across the green and black evil twin (still own and ride)this changed my focus away from the other "major" brands as the TBT made me actually smile and laugh whilst riding no matter what the conditions. I have ridden that board on ice and glaciers, back country and deep powder and it does everything amazingly, though as it was designed for freestyle, jibbing and buttering that's what it does the best. For this season I've been lucky enough to get hold of an Enemy which is also simply incredible and beats the s##t out of the equivalent super-lights and vapors of the other brands (tried those as well), it is rapidly fast (keep it waxed well!) and simply beats any other piste and all mountain board out there. Finally this brings me onto my recent birthday present an undisputed which I am using as my powder board or where the conditions are anything other than ideal... I simply do not have the words on how good this monster is as long as you have the ability to do it justice and the balls to believe that the edges will hold at that speed on those inclines. I hope that my review is inspiring enough to get a few more of you riders buying and riding bataleon? Remember having fun and pushing your own limits is what snow-boardings about. You don't have to be the best, just the best you can be and these boards will allow you to do this. Get in touch if you want me to give you some info on any of these boards. I must try not to fall in love with any more Bataleons next season!”

Peter Wolf

“Borrowed a Bateleon Testboard from the local board shop. Went to Austria last week to see what the fuzz was about concerning Triple Base Technology. Was it as good as Bataleon claims it to be and could it really beat my B&^^%n C(*(&m board?

Well,let´s just say I´m a Bataleon fan by now. Smoooth and (very)fast turns,Excellent in the off piste and in the park. Perfect harmony between me and the board...and that was just a testboard! Definitely going to buy a Bataleon next season. Cannot wait until season starts again.”

gavin

“I have just returned from a weeks in Austria with my new 153 Goliath. I can only ride once a year and have been looking for a new board that can do it all and push me onto new things. I was blessed with dump’s of fresh snow and explored the mountain in ways I had only previously dreamt of, driven by confidence and control that TBT gives you. Don’t believe the hype, try it yourself and you will understand.”

Milhinhos

“In 2008 I rented a Goliath at an amazing local ski shop in Les Deux Alps. I really loved the board, so this year I have bought a 2010 Goliath and took it to 3 Vallees. Well, for someone that snowboards 1 week per year, hitting the park, bomb downhill every type of run and float in miles of offpiste fields (first powder ever!), I only have to thank God there is Bataleon! TBT is the Maradona of Snowboard!! Move your ass from the couch and GET ONE! NOW!!!”

“this year i bought a funkink, it was my first bataleon and it has been the best board ive ever owned! TBT has helped me improve so much this year and now its the only brand of board ill ride. gettin a riot forshure next year. TBT 4 LIFE”

Johan Nilsson

“Its the second season im riding the Goliath, I love it. Im getting a Fun.Kink for next season. Gah, such a long wait. You need to post some videos where someone is riding the 10/11 Fun.Kink! I want to see it in action! =)”

Toha

“Beginners seek advice from riders with experience. But sometimes experienced riders may be blinded by their own skill level to make a great beginner board suggestion. I am currently a beginner, and let me just say that I feel your pain, n00bs. So here's a piece of advice to beginners, from a beginner: Get a Bataleon board. I have ridden a flat board several times and just switched to a Goliath and took it for a spin twice already. What a difference! Even as a beginner, who isn't supposed to know the difference between boards (so I was told), I noticed how much faster this board is, and best of all FAR LESS EDGE CATCHING. Both straight lining and carving is a lot smoother and a lot more forgiving. It really creates a better learning environment than a flat board. So forget cheap rentals or $100 crap sticks at your local sport shops. Get a Bataleon with TBT and you will keep it for a while, both to learn on and go hard on. Even though I'm a beginner now, I don't see myself growing out of this board even as I improve my riding. I love my board. I love TBT. YEAH 4 IT!”

“ive just recieved this years airobic,
i have been mourning the death of my evil twin (or mortal wounding due to a service by snow and rock uk)
it was a board which has given me the confidence to hit the piste/off piste alike, hard and confidence to start doing small jumps and stuff, grinds are easy,
im normally a free rider,
thanks to bataleon ive decided to hit the park this year!
Thanks for all the good work!”

“Love the technology! Only problem is your smallest board (143) is still slightly big for me. Is bataleon going to come out with a slightly smaller size? maybe a 137 or 136 or something?”

George

“I like it real good!”

youbet

“I've been riding a Jam 161W for the last two years and for the life of me can't understand why this isn't the only board available. I have season pass in the UP of MI Indian Head Mountain and use it every weekend. 180" fresh stuff this year so far. This board does it all, from jumping, woods, powder, groomed, lunch and back to jumping.
Tossed it in to get waxed last week and the tech's have never seen one. Hope this changes.
TBT For the long run.”

Paul

“I got a enemy 161 last week and am amazed at the tbt! It is a rocket ship and is very stable at speed. I just ordered the airobic and can't wait for that to get here tomorrow, so I can have both ends of the flex spectrum! Yeah for it!”

Bennnnnnnnnnn

“TBT... what can't I say about TBT! It makes for one of the best boards I have ever ridden. I have owned B****n boards for over a dozen years. Some kits costing as much as 2 grand. However, this year was different. A new shop opened up in my city, selling brands that no one else carries... Bataleon, being one of them. So I picked myself up a 155 ET artist edition and WOW!!!! took a day to really get used to it after a decade of flat base riding. The thing rips like a bat out of hell... the edge transition is lightning quick... you wished every other board rode this good after floating down a pow line. oh yeah, it butters like the dirty offspring of two spoons and a hunk of plywood's drunken sex romp. But seriously, everything Bataleon claims it does, IT DOES. Just be prepared to wax more often as edge burn is a daily occurance, maybe from going so fast :P YEAH4IT”

TBT Believer!!!

“Preface: I am an ok park rider & intermediate-advanced all mountain rider. I am not a professional reviewer, but I thought I would share this anyway.

I currently have the green and black 07-08 Evil Twin 159/Union setup that I have ridden for 3 years. It is awesome and I love the board. The 59 is a little long for me, so Im sizing down for next year.

I had never ridden a rocker type board before today and wanted to check out first hand what all the BS is about. Here is my review of Mervin BTX vs Burton Vrocker vs Burton Camber vs TBT.

Today I rode a 57 Lib TRS BTX, 57 Burton X8 with v-rocker, and 58 Easy Livin (cambered version); 2 weeks ago I did a Bataleon Airobic 155 demo. I wanted to demo an Easy Livin Flyin V but I couldnt find one anywhere.

The Lib was fun. Poppy, easy to butter, a little unstable at speed though. Pop was great and the BTX was very pronounced. Also, the WW was too narrow for me. Pass...

The X8 Vrocker was extremely fun but very very soft. A little too soft for me I think. Softer than the Airobic for sure which is very flexy. A bad ass Burton Pro named Stefan Maurer pushes this thing around "like wo" in the pirates film Jolly Roger. Chorlton is a "pirate", so all you Bataleon fans should watch it for his footy anyway...

The Burton 58 Easy Livin was my least favorite of all these. Good pop, stiff tail, twin shape, good response to binding movement, but felt heavy. I wanted to hit a couple of the med-to-big jump lines today, but the damn visibility was like 10 feet and it just wasn't safe. It actually felt quite a bit heavier than the X8 and the Lib. Maybe due to the size, maybe b/c I was getting tired. I really wanted to demo a Flyin V version of this board to compare, but they are elusive I guess.

After this demo day,I will never go back to a regular flat based board ever again!!! I am leaning toward a 2011 Bataleon Airobic 55 (great work Bataleon graphic's department)/Union Contact kit for next year. The 55 Airobic is a PERFECT park board IMO. For SoCal mtns, it is all I could ever ask for. I will prob also get a Riot for when I am ready to step it up a notch...

I was concerned about the Airobic base speed wise, but I was flying past other riders all day. I loved the weight, flex, and playfulness. The Airobic was "jibaliscious" and "buttertastic" (not my words, but true nonetheless). If you have not tried a Bataleon, go find one and do it. TBT is a totally different feel vs all other flat based boards. I actually saw a kid with the 2011 Artist Edition (must be a team rider I guess) who was killing it at Bear Mtn... For all those haters out there, dont open your mouth if you have never ridden a Bataleon. GO FIND ONE TO RIDE AND YOU WILL BE A CONVERT!!!

Anyway, these were my thoughts from today. Thought Id share...

“Its snowing heavily here in Livigno, Italy. Free day tomorrow OH WHAT JOY. Will be snowboarding on my new ET all day in fresh powder, just cant wait.”

Alex Zartman

“I bought a 2009 Goliath 161. I have used it now for 7 days in Utah, Colorado and Vermont. All I can say is this is the fastest, best handling board I have ever ridden. It turns super fast, it rides even faster...perfect for those long flats when traversing the mountains on the cat tracks. I used all temp rub on wax after every session. This board seems bullet proof. I plan on sticking with TBT for a long time coming. Yeah for it!”

kevdog

“TBT is like Christopher Columbus. Before him, people actually thought flat was for real. Yeah for it, for real, yo.”

kris hawkins

“Bataleon is awesome, i have been demoing the riot 151 last years model. i ride on the northstar snowboard team, thanks for sending them to Brandon and Ryan for us to use them. tbt rocks”

CaseyZ

“Just came back from a week high up in the Alps on my Jam 164W....wooooaaaah what a board for flying down pistes stable and in control, driving the board through the turns and sailing through deep powder!! Yeah 4 it!!”

Smile Contest Winner

“I got the Goliath 157 wide and I would have to say so far it is sick. I live in the midwest and it has been super icy lately and a problem I have had with every other board i owned was washing out alot but this board just grabs the ice love it... Spins are easier and never catch and edge. So far I would say overall this board is great and tbt rocks lets hope when I get in some other conditions it performs just as well. my only complaint so far would be the base gets dry really fast but just have to wax a little more then usual no big deal.”

Kraven Moorehead

“bought a Jam 161w with out demo'ing first, thought i had made a big mistake when i rode it for the first 200yards... then it happened. pretty sure i'm batchitcrazy for bataleon for life now.
Also, i didnt really need a 'wide' board, but i cant tell at all that this is the widest board i've ever ridden. tbt cures what ails ya”

“Saw the whole thing, dude. First you were all like "whoa", and we were like "whoa", and you were like "whoaaaaaaaa..."

“yeah guys. bought last week the fun kink 153. its a great plesure to ride these fucking board. easy turns and bomb down the hill. thx bataleon”

David

“wow, just used my goliath today and tbt is legit. no edge catches and the confidence it gives you WILL make you a better rider, much better”

Darius

“TBT on my 161 Jam is great. I'm a beginner and turning is way easier. This definitely makes snowboarding more fun. Thanks Bataleon!!”

ryan

“TBT is some real shit! having never rode on a bataleon i copped and rode my 153 goliath and it ripped every part of the mountain i took it on. truly an all mountain board. and DEFINITELY a new repeat customer”

Cameron Gordon

“Dear Bataleon,

TBT just doesn't make sense...
Like a futuristic vessel that can read my mind

=) YEAH4!T”

Daniel

“Hi people! I just took my Omni for a spin what a board AWSOME!
Havent seen so much reviews about my Omni so i wanted to give som positiv feedback great fucki´n board!!”

Schmidt

“I tried my 157w Goliath yesterday and im sooooo stoked!!! TBT is Worldchanging.. it gives so much confidence in doing anything.. even Powder was soooo easy (im 190cm and 85kg). TBT helps landing spins and sketchy landings.

Believe what the peoples saying on this site.. cause its TRUE!!!

Bataleon YEAH FOR IT!!! Customer FOREVER!”

Nico

“Après de nombreuses recherches sur le web et dans les magazines j'ai craqué pour une Bataleon Goliath. Ce n'est même pas une planche, ni une marque, que j'avais pré-sélectionnée lors de mes studieuses recherches ;-)
Elle m'a été conseillée par le vendeur du Vieux Campeur et vraiment c'était un choix remarquable.
Dans toute les circonstances tu peux compter sur la Goliath, elle file à plat sans accroche et carve comme une malade grâce au tbt. Elle est maniable, nerveuse et te donne vraiment l'impression d'être pas trop mauvais... à 42 ans ça n'a pas de prix !!!!!!!!!!
Merci à l'équipe.
Nico”

Federico

“I'm a beginner however I did try some boards every time I was renting them. I even tried some kind of reverse camber and I must say that with the Goliath 2010 that I bought I felt more in control than with the reverse rocker but still enjoying the same sense of "freedom". The best from the 2 worlds. Good job.”

Stef

“Bought a goliath, the board is simply INSANE, I love how it pops, and I never cought edge!

The new Batazion looks insane btw!
send me one...
Yeah for it!”

Jan

“tbt is awesome on boxes and ledges! first try ever front tail to frontboard!”

Rob

“Ok. So I never had a snowboard of my own. I otok the plunge and after years of wanting - i bought a bataleon. Let me tell you the Goliath 2010 is ridiculously AWESOME.....Took it to Espace Killy and did i rip it up?? YES...did i ever catch an edge, no, did i ride on the flat like a surfer - hell yes. riding was a joy, it popped, it rode fast. it is and was beautiful. it has a few scratches on the top surface, but by god i am the happiest snowboarder alive. Thank you Bataleon”

kary

“first try ever nollie bs lipslide on rail stomped, new ET is insane. cheers guys”

Schmidt

“Bought a 157w Goliath 2010 and a 164 Goliath 2009.. Stoked to try them and try TBT :-)

Feedback will follow for sure!

“I started using the 157 Goliath at the beginning of the 09-10 season and Im blown AWAY. I have never had a smoother ride in my life.I have been using Ride and Burton and I am likely to NEVER GO BACK. I have taken this board all over from Whistler/Blackcomb to Kirk Wood. The TBT technology is unlike anything out there. I LOVE IT. Im currently waiting for my 155 Riot to come. SO pumped.”

“Tried a TBT Twin 151 test board last week in Austria. I am totally convinced!! YEAH FOR IT! Need to by me an ET 151! Popping, ramps, 360's, carving, powder...everything went smooth as hell!
From now on, I won't strap on fake shit anymore!”

Ben

“Just bought a Goliath cant wait to test it this weekend, Actually couldnt sleep the day I bought it!”

Chellimus

“Tried an Evil Twil last year. After 1 slope I knew I URGENTLY had to replace my Burton Custom with a Bataleon. It's totally amazing how much grip you have on icy slopes. Bought a Jam and it's totally awesome. I'm so much more relaxed on my board now.”

Kiwi

“Shit man, is that true about Elan making most boards? I once heard the same thing about Wild Duck??? Who knows??
Totally agree that Bataleon quality is as good as it gets, edges dont just explode, C'mon man! P.S. Riot 159, best deck in the fucking world, end of story.”

Gabe R.

“hey just saying im wayy better now thanks to the confidence TBT has instilled in me
YEAH FOR IT MOTHAAA FCKAAAAA

btw... what happened to nick visconti? too much sex drugs and rock&roll for you guys?

lars

“I'm definitely not the world's best rider ... but maybe that's what the board excuses - it all seems so much easier and more fun!!! getting ready for my next tbt board (goliath 153) - can't wait. try it out & judge for yourself”

Manuel

“I work in a shops in Spain and if a customer comes back with a damage like that we tell him " no way " that is warranty. Sometime they get angry but not 1 company we work with will replace that boards.”

Kenny Powers

“I was just reading over some Bataleon feedback and came across the dipshit who ruined his board on a rail and was trying to say it was the quality of the board. Now I'm no expert - I only own one of the biggest independent snowboard shops in Canada and peed on Dave Cashen's foot once, so needless to say my experience and knowledge is obviously extremely limited - but I'll throw my 2 cents in anyway. It is IMPOSSIBLE to blow out an edge like that by just riding around. Sweet blond haired almost Swedish looking baby Jesus... are you goddam retarded? Please do yourself a favour: go by a piece of shit like a Burton or Forum or Rome and join the rest of the whinny bitches that buy crap like that and make insane comments about how their boards suck when they get a chip (boo fuckin hoo) or case it on a rail and break it in half. At least next time you break your board don't post photo evidence and then claim it was "the quality". Bush league man... totally bush league. Bataleon quality is as good as it gets, and unlike most other snowboards, it isn't just an Elan with a different graphic on it. Wait - you did know that Elan, the super fantastic SKI COMPANY makes most of the snowboards out there right?? Idiot.”

Billy

“I'v had a 09 fun kink for a year.. And I didn't hold back on it. And I have hardly any damage. my only porblem was....... it got stolen out side the hotel =(

anyway I have a new fun kink USA coming

CAN'T WATE!!”

Jaksen

“Any board will eventually get damaged when jibbing urban features/steel rails...or you just smashed it up because you're a mole from another company - Busted! j/k, but I'm sure you had more fun with TBT doing whatever you did.”

BA

“i have fallen in love with the tbt! Being a midwest rider you gotta have a nice flexy board with a lot of pop! It took a little to get used to, but now its everything i could of ever want in a shred stick! Your guy's boards won me over! I choose my Airobic to ride over my Burton UNINC anyday! And orsgirgir. thats impact from a rail or something anyboard will do that..”

orsgjrgjr

“yeah a rock, great quality if a rock cracked an edge like that. Too bad I live in the Midwest and there isn't a single rock on the mountain. I understand your warranty policies but your boards just don't hold up.”

BS

“@orsgjrgjr I have been selling bataleon for 3 seasons now and I must say they are solid boards the warranty issues are not more than other brands I would say maybe even less. Your edge cracking is obviously the result of hitting some serious rocks that's never a warranty so I think you are over reacting here...”

SF

“Yeah for it!”

Ben R

“Rode my new board(the jam) for the first time yesterday in montana. It was seriously the most fun ive ever had snowboarding. At the end of the day i made both my friends try it out just so they could understand what i was raving about. They both loved it and said next time they buy boards it will be bataleon.”

j

“I'm riding bataleon boards for 3 years. Evil Twin and Airobic. I tested different board with rockershape and other "innovations". There is no "innovation" which has only positive effects in all conditions! TBT rocks.”

Ollie

“Floats from edge to edge, light, poppy and all round fantastic. TBT is it!”

Rob

“Bataleon has been featured in the 'Innovation Product' section of the BBC Ski Sunday Snow (check out on the iPlayer). Looks like words getting around!”

adam

“tbt is it! got 100 times better in one day on this board at mt bachelor, youll switch easier, butter better, and get more chicks. parra x evil twin best board ive ridden”

Leo

“This afternoon I exchange my Airobic with my friend's one. After the first track, he decided to throw away his Apo Selekta and to get a Bataleon. He just bought an Evil Twin this evening. Bataleon sucks !!!”

“been riding my funkink for 1 year now. i cant imagine riding without tbt anymore. it forgives you so many mistakes, and gives you new freedom. it also floats way better. i dont think i will ever buy a board without tbt.”

Jake

“Just saw larrogs ridding in Alpe Dhuez, France. Bataleon is the shit.”

marcu

“je viens juste de m'acheter la Evil twin 2010, incroyable de facilité de legerté, exactement ce que je cherchais; la tbt apporte beaucoup de souplesse et de nervosité.
impossible de descendre de la planche à la fin de la journée !”

Vipe

“I rented the bataleon test board for one day, FUCK MAN, it was great! never snowboarding felt so good, it was like flying over the snow. I never want a normal flat board or reverse camber shit anymore, tbt is fucking epic. Yeah I'm serious, tbt is way better than sex.

T B T F T W !”

Nitro NL

“A frend told me about the bataleon products so i had a look at the tbt and where very interested in the concept so 2 Weeks agow i take distance from my old board. Now i have a funkink and it boards great I have more control than before. Now i go downhill with a bigsmile”

heartbroken

“i am incredibly jealous of my friends bataleon and im so stoked to get one next season, maybe this season if i win the contest.
Smile! It's Snowboarding”

Mike N.

“I just got and test my 159' Riot!
Excellent riding in Parks and pow,litle stify in rails the best in ground tricks! No more flat boards for me!!! TBT all the way to the and!!!”

C.Lyd

“my friend was demoing a arbor for 5 straight days saying he loved it and was about to make a purchase, i shook my head and said "dude, you gotta try my bataleon (funkink USA)"

i switch my bindings with his and let him play around. after ONE run he hates me. not because he hates the board, but because he has to tell the arbor dudes that he changed his mind and is getting a bataleon instead.

YEAH 4 IT!”

Francis

“147 Airobic floats like a butterfly stings like a bee.”

Josh

“My Fun.Kink kicks ass”

Andy Redfern

“Awesome! Have been wanting a Goliath for ages but was gonna make do with my old board this season to svae the cash. Took a demo board after four days riding and felt the tiredness lift, effortless riding, has doubled the fun!”

Leo

“Ridin an Airobic for 3 days. IT DEFINITELY SUCKS !!! The TBT is the higher technology for the flat. For the rails. For kickers. Bataleon one day, Bataleon all days.”

Danny Boy

“Spent the last few days riding The Jam 164. This is a fantastic board. Does exactly what it says on the tin. No matter how hard you ride it you always feel in control. Well done Bataleon.”

john

“i was just testing if they show evy feedback. i love tbt!”

“I ride on an Evil twin... it's so smooth an easy to ride... It's a true twin so you can ride both sides which is good to progress. Et le PALUM, you've got your Goliath???? YeaH for it”

LEE JOHNSTON, BRAINTREE, ESSEX

“I FINALLY GOT TO RIDE MY BATALEON GOLIATH 157W WIRH A SWEET RED BASE AND I TELL YA ITS PROPPER FAST, THROW ANYTING AT THIS BOARD ITS JUST CHICKEN ORIENTAL. HELL BLOODY YEAH FOR IT. BATALEON TILL I ER RETIRE!”

Brian

“My goliath 09/10 is great! Thanks to the TBT my landings are so smooth. TBT is definitly better than ROCKER!! Some of the rocker boards are sketchy/slippery in sketchy landings, especially at kickers and jumps.

In the style of the TBT and the goliath and all the other bataleon stuff, even softgoods and presentation you simply see that bataleon is made for and by lovers

THANKS TBT!!”

LAAA!!!

“finally i got to ride my evil twin yesterday so smooth and buttery i didn't catch a edge best board i have ever had and its fun to ride yeah for it!!!”

Jackson Diamond

“First day on rails with the evil twin. Talk about butter smooth. I added two new tricks to my bag today. Confidence all day long.”

asaf

“Got my Evil twin 155 last season and tried it in Val Thorens France
It was love at first site and fXXXX awesome on the first ride!! (this board just keeps smiling at me...)”

Chris F

“TBT = Awesome. Decided it was time for a new board, been riding a 08/09 155 Riot for about a year now and i was in my mind that TBT wasn't all that, so i went off to my local board shop and demoed everything in the store almost, Rocker Boards, Camber Boards, Rocker/Camber Boards, Fruit related boards and then i took the Goliath out and was instantly proved that TBT is the best. The only board i tried to put a smile on my face the whole time. TBT is the only way forward and bought a 157 there and then.”

Garett Kopp

“Ok, i know, i still don't have your board yet, (I'm workin on it!, PhotoStudent=NoMoney) But last winter, borrowed a board from a buddy, the first lap felt smooth, 2nd lap better, and lets just say first day i was able to throw 14 flips, and at least 30 solid spins with out real bail up at Bachelor. Oh and rails... Fuh, like those things! Forgetabout IT! Bataleon-So close to gettin Mine!”

Gabe

“OMG FINALLY I CAN RAVE THE SHIT OUTTA THIS THING!!
TBT IS AMAZING
i was so stoked to get my hands on the last '09 Evil Twin on sale in the summer, used it today. I DID NOT catch an edge. EVER. first time i went down the hill, i didnt even realize how much flex that mofo had until i bailed on my back from pressing too far over!
I ended up going way more balls out than i usually do! PLUS I LANDED ERRYTHING!!! SHIIIIIIIIIIIIT
TBT HELL-TO-THE-YEAH FOR IT!!”

Travis Robinson

“I broke my board at the end of last season. There was a rail jam i wanted to participate in and I was without a board so I used a demo board (fun kink) from a local boardshop( [BS] The Board Shop Lake geneva WI) and I absolutely loved it!! I felt more confidence with all my tricks on the fun kink after just one ride than I did after many seasons on my previous board! thanks Bataleon for the TBT!! and I just bought my own fun kink for this season and can't wait to ride it!”

Guy from Latvia

“For the last 2 seasons I have ridden 2 evil twins. The white and green one. Stoooked! I go so smooth down the boxes.. no catching at all! Speed at all times, great pop and durability. I'm riding round 90 days in the year (thanks for global warming) and every time I'm thankful for TBT. Next evil twin 155 - I'm coming!

Great job Bataleon”

Alfy

“I am an engineer as well as being a snowboarder for the last 13 years,after readig bataleon's ravings & claims it made sense,so much sense infact i went out and bought an enemy.
Tried it out last weeked and WOW!! Dose every thing it says on the tin and more! Confidence inspiring like i have never found on any other board. The future is defo here! Thanks Bat :-)”

Deon

“i just got my Fun.Kink USA 153 and i will never ride another brand of snowboards again,the fun.kink.is so poppy and amazing , Bataleon for life!!!!”

Jackson Diamond

“Two days on the TBT. Never had more fun crusing. TBT shines in chopped powder. So far lovin it!”

Alvin (TbT convert) Kingsbury

“I was advised by the dudes in Mr Chorlton's board shop in Andorra last season to get onboard(pardon the pun) of the bataleon crew's stylings. I'm like a proud father of my Fun.Kink, smug as a pop star.
Never a truer word spoken about the funnist board around.
Now the winter is already looking good in the pyrenees, got me seasonaires pas for Piau(France) and ready to PLAY like an Aussie seening the snow for the first time. Pure fun! Viva la TbT revolution. iYa Basta!

Espen M

“I have been riding my Evil Twin for two seasons now, so i though it was time to get a new board.. A new Evil Twin of course!

TBT really has improved my riding skill, and i dont believe that I will ever actively use another brand!

Thanks Bataleon!”

JacksonDiamond

Leo

“Duuuuude ! Chris in the team, great bullshit ! Yeah for it !!!”

M. Kandl

“I freeride hard and always felt limited, which I chalked up to my own inability to break beyond. I stumbled upon a Bataleon board a few years back and have been boosted in my abilities AND love for the sport that I never dreamed possible. This TBT is for real and it is what it is about; it is that different!!! Thanks Bataleon for the FUN that I could have missed !!!!!”

oiN8io

“Just ordered an Evil Twin yesterday, it should be here tomorrow! If I getta chance this weekend I'll be on it for sure! Way to go Bataleon thanks for the awesome boards!!”

M. Irwin

“TBT is awesome.

Was shopping for a board with some crazy new reverse camber tech when I stumbled across a crew of Bataleon reps at my local ski resort.

One thing led to another and I walked away with a 153 Violenza. It was like an instant ability booster. Not only did I end the season with extreme confidence on steeps, I even took my board into the park to stomp boxes -- for the very first time!

Once you go TBT, you can never go back.”

Wurstl

“Rode a lot of different boards last season but nothing even came close to the bataleonz I tried. So I picked up a riot for this season and gonna take it up to the kitz next weekend yea yeea!”

Matt Raven

“Just got my new Evil Twin!!

Ellz

“Fun.kink USA Edition is duh shizz LAVVV IT. I want some clothes to go along with it too but that's taking a lil too long to come in. Bataleon soft goods were supposed to be in 3 months ago. Even though I'm sad imma still buy those clothes =)
I Love Bataleon”

CLyd

“▼▼▼▼ Hilter would say that.
TBT doesnt make you slide all over the place, if anything the burton "cruise control" crap will. TBT is flat where you want it.”

A.hitler

“Bataleon is shit. TBT is a joke... it makes it almost impossible to grab any edge so you slide around with no controll at all. buy a burton”

Sascha Henderson

“I hope you all are right about how great this TBT is supposed to be. I'm sold after reading all the feedback and watching some vids. So i spent more money than i should have to get the Evil Twin Artist Edition. Should be arriving any day now. I'm so stoked about it!”

Griffin Brain

“Anyone not riding TBT this season is holding back the sport of snowboarding.”

Chris Moye

“Just picked up a 59 Riot for myself and a 51 Distortia for my girl. Last season I rode a 57 Jam and loved it. Totally stoked for the season.

@ Joker$ If you had ridden one you would realize its not hype...Better than banana, better than Scoop, better than rocker-camber. I have ridden them all and TbT is better than all of them.

Don't believe me, don't take my word for it, just give it a fair shake come snow season. Cheers”

Thomas de Jonge

“I took commin' seasons Enemy++ for a test run last winter en I ordered one right away. I have never had a board so responsive and snappy but on the other hand easy to handle (because of the 3 fingers)

I have ridden a lot of brands in my life but nothing like a Bataleon. It's a whole "new" idea of snowboarding and it rocks like hell!!!!!

It just keeps you smiling, because it's snowboarding!

YEAH for it!”

Dennis McGowen

“I have been snowboarding for a long time and always wondered why snowboards were shaped like skis. I do engineering for a living and have long thought that snowboards needed a serious rethinking to progress forward and POW! Here comes Bataleon with the TBT and I almost cried with joy when I saw the design......they have fixed all of the flaws with the current day snowboard design. I bought a Goliath for me, a Goliath for my youngest son, and a Funkink for my oldest son and I can honestly say that we will never ride any other kind of board! Bataleon for life!”

My new Fun.Kink 157 is a wee big for me but still it is uncomparable to anything else i have ridin. TBT is BIG. You folks are genius!”

Justin Hawk

“I snowboard every single day during the winter and have ridin a lot of boards. Now every board has there different techs. but by far the best I have riden is Bataleon (That gay Burton Hero that stole TBT and Bananna Tech is a poser) I have a 157W Goliath, 155 Airobic, and a 151 Evil Twin and each has taken a beating and never let me down. Just make the easy choice and choose Bataleon. Cause when it comes down to it do you wanna be one man or part of a Bataleon!”

Diego from italy

“Evil Twin 09, is a dream come true!!!”

Hank

“picked up The Jam and headed to the French Alps for some springtime fun. It held on to the 9am ice, powered through the slush, and popped like a crazy thing... It's on another level, and it hasn't even seen powder! Flat boards are dead.”

Benny

“got my fun.kink 153 for 3 months now ... it's amazing ... crazy shit ... bataleon rulez ... yeah for it”

Beboly

“I rode the Evil Twin 155 the whole winter season in the Alps...it's the first time i own a TwinTip board and it's fucking amazing!!!!
I've started freestyle at the beginning of the season (i've ridden like a month this year) and it's really astounding how i improved fast.
I can do the 4 180s,both normal 3-6, Frontflip (fucking scared of backflip for the moment :p), ride switch and do a lot shitty ground tricks....
I've no idea whether it's because of your board but thankz a lot though.

I can't wait for next season!

Cheers Bataleon

“I used to ride realy stiff freeride boards that were good for hi speeds but were terrible for jumping.
I bought an Evil Twin and I can't believe how good this thing is.
It's not the prettiest board, but I managed to do some tricks now that I didn't dare trying on my Nitro Pantera.

“I got my Evil Twin 151 and rode it in Snowworld Landgraaf, Netherlands. I have never rode fake before, but now I could do that immediately!! I love you guys!! Yeaah for it!!”

Why not

“U guys brought fun back to snowboarding. First time i feel really really sad that the season ends. Evil Twin in park, the Riot in Pow. Heaven. I let my friends try my TBT's, and they're all want to buy a Bataleon now. Ur welcome but most of all; thank u and if there would be a Nobel-prize for snowboarding, i think we all know who should win it... B is for Bataleon”

“Yeah so, riding my riot after 150 days or more on hill for 8 hours a day (working as park crew and days off) and never waxed once, never tuned once, just rode. still straight-lining faster than my friends in shitty spring snow, even after jibbing rails, boxes, trees and rocks. i own the jam as well, but she only comes out when the snow does. make sure you make more boards for next year guys, because my girlfriend, friends and myself need more 'B' in our lives next winter, and I don't mean that other 'B' company...”

Athen

“came back after a week of riding of my brand new Violenza - loved it! absolutely awesome! speed and control! it was spring, violenza conquered slush, ice (real packed ice) and powder! go go violenza!”

xDanx

“got a fun kink from last season.its the best board ive ever ridden, smooth as fuck and so uch fun;) fuck the rest, bataleon rulezzz!”

Gav Wares

“Cant praise tbt enough!!! especially since a number of companies have announced dropping reverse camber next year as it doesnt work. TBT = all the pop u ever wanted with extra forgivness! snowboarding has never been so much fun! cant even start to list stuff i can do now that i couldnt b4 thank you bataleon and tbt!!!”

Chris Moye

“Got a chance to get on a 55 Riot last weekend and loved it even more than the 07/08 Jam I have been riding. Thanks Tyler. When do next years boards come in... getting two”

Jeremy Poirier Claflin

“just got the 09 GOLIATH it is extraaaaeeeme!!! would you ride a flat girl? no. so why ride a flat board? awww yeaaaa, nuff said”

simon cope

“Just got back from a stint in France, using my new Evil Twin. Life is good with TBT! Everything is so much more enjoyable - even wiping out makes you laugh! I'm proud to own a Bataleon board, and will sing your praise to anyone who bothers listening! Woooooop!!!”

Russell Behrmann

“I am convinced however I would like to try one. I just invested in a libtech TRS equiped with banana technology and magnatraction. I believe that the 3 base tech is probably better because it is more natural. However trying is believing. I have to be honest. I am almost ready to auction off my current snowboard. Trying a bataleon out will probably push me over the edge. Please let me know how this can happen? Thanks Sincerely, Russell C. Behrmann”

“This is my second season and i have an evil twin and it is truly awesome. bataleon is mint.”

Ryan C

“I had a chance to take the Goliath out to Killington on Saturday 21st and Sunday the 22nd. Saturday the skies were blue and the sun was shining. Temp was mid 40's and the snow was nice and soft and not slushy. Snow was quite amazing. On Sunday we got hit with snow. It was about 30 degrees out and we got 7"-8" of snow. So what I am trying to say is that I basically got to take the board out on every condition there was: soft snow, ice, hard pack, some slush, and POW. Bottom line....This board killed it all. It held an edge on ice extremely well, floated in the POW, and had absolutely no chatter at speed. Not to mention it has awesome flex and pop. Can't wait to take it out again this weekend! YEAH FOR IT!”

Gavin Breeze

“Just bought a Evil Twin, was worried i wouldn't like the TBT tech after 9 years of riding traditional boards, but loved it! All boards should be made this way!”

emils

“nothing new to say just best boards ever. P.S. evil twin really is evil. in first day with it i broke my right arm (both bones).”

gareth

“Just got back from riding my new Goliath for the first time. I'm afraid it's all true! Buy one, believe the hype. YEAH FOR IT!!!”

samule

“i bought goliath 161 and ride it with burton triad bindings. This board is awsome, just what i needed. For slope cruise, powder, park jumps and can handle rails too. big ups!!!”

Rob (Switzerland)

“Hmmm! How can I say this - It's like running as fast as you can in pair of shoes for years, knowing things could be better and then given a new invention called a pair of trainers! I was amazed it's that fundamental. Within the first 100m I was aware I was experiencing a new era in the evolution of Snowboarding. I bought "The Jam" (Wide version) today.”

Thomas

“Just used my new fun kink 157 for a week in Austria and.... never going back. Never ever. Bataleon for life. TBT is awesome. Bataleon basically destroys every Burton board ive had in the past like they are pretty much raining hellfire down upon all other brands. Thanks Bataleon! Send me a shirt! Love Thomas x”

potzblitz

“Just had the luck to get the last 151 Riot of this season and had today my first snowday with it. I'm working in a skate/snowshop in bavaria and have seen and ridden many many (flat) boards over the last 8 years.. so i was very excited about my first bataleon board. The weather was fine, the snow was fine and the board was just...AWESOME! I am still so impressed, i can't desribe! The board surfs through the snow like a hovercraft! It's just such a big difference to all the other stuff out there, i will never ever ride any other board (and that will mean something ;))It improves every detail of my snowboarding, whatever kind of! I can commend the riot to every rider out there searching for a amazing stable speed stick with just freakin' POP! Absolutely YEAH FOR IT! Thanks bataleon!”
