bataleons used to be built like a tank...were talking quadrax laminates, top and bottom, and carbon, even on all their park boards. They used to be exceptional, now they're just standard (although TBT is still good).
In 2013, even their top of the line only have triax laminates and 2014 will drop their two top end boards, entirely (enemy and undisputed).
I guess CS has taken a drop, as well. Back in 2008, when I emailed them about info on a Riot, they got back to me within the same day. Not saying bataleon is now bad, but they're definitely not what they used to be.
I just got a 2013 Airobic...the build quality looks absolutely flawless up close (haven't ridden it), but I hope it doesn't turn out to be a POS.
