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.
