Thumbs up Attack Banana vs Bataleon Goliath

Hi guys,

I'm thinkin on buying a new board but i'm a little bit confuse between those:

Attack Banana 1.56
Bataleon Goliath 1.58W

5.87 ft, 178.57lb and 11.

I prefer the freeride rather than the park, but i also like to practise some jumps and tricks.

What do u think?

Thanks

John

Attack Banana is my recommendation, but that's cause I had one.

i rode my friends attack banana i thought it was a bit stiff, definitely more of an all mountain board, not a dedicated park board.

That stiffness really helps a lot in pow and the ec2 makes for a super playful and poppy board.

i totally agree with above, but a bit softer would make it more jibby, easier to do presses and better for boxes and rails.

it all depends what you need.

And what about the size?? 1.56 can be short for me?? And non-wide with a 11 US will be uncomfortable?

No need for wide and unless your constantly riding pow, you don't need a bigger board.
