2018 Disaster

There is no better board for jibbing than the Disaster. None of our team riders leave the house without it. It's soft flex, low camber, and 3BT™ with mellow uprise and a wide centerbase is the perfect mix for all types of trouble.

For this season’s disaster, we partnered with our Swedish friend Nate from Vacation Domination. Check their site and pick up a t-shirt while you’re at it. Support your favorite artists! www.vacationdomination.com

Somebody call "trade discriptions" this board is the opposite of Disaster!! I have a smile from ear to ear. I flicked it more times than my wifes bean and she is a nympho!!

Hi! I've been riding your Disaster for two seasons now. And it is, hands down, the best match for my riding ever (been riding since 1994). So, thank you for that!

I was looking forward to riding this board and it did not disappoint! I've had such a blast riding. It's light, responsive, and fun. I'm relatively new to the park game and this gave me the confidence to hit all sorts of rails, boxes, and larger jumps (not huge) that I normally hesitate to hit. I'm riding this relatively shorter than normal and haven't noticed any problem with speed or control. Loving the TBT tech too. Couldn't recommend this board higher!

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.

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.

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

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.

Adam

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.
