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.
