My Take: Bataleon Goliath
I had a chance to take the Goliath out to Killington this past Saturday the 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!
