Bataleon board sizing?

I was wondering how the sizing works for Bataleon boards and their TBT. Can you ride a bit shorter compared to a regular cambered board or do you stick to your regular sizing?

If I ride a 162 freeride board, would I be okay with a 157 freestyle/all-mountain board?

i believe there sizing is like a regular board, not positive though. i think the main determinant is effective board edge to see if you could go shorter on the board.

Do you have your choice of various sizes? I wouldn't go that small. I'd suggest a 159.

No, with the Jam its only 157 then a 161. I realy didn't want to get a 161 considering it will be a freestyle/all mountain board and I wanted to go a bit shorter. I already ordered The Jam, found an 07/08 model brand new for $320...

I don't really bomb down runs with a lot of speed so I dont really need the longer board for high speed stability and I wanted a bit more agile board so I think the 157 will be a good fit, I hope.

Jam is stiffer and geared more towards being a freeriding board from what I understand?

yeah, being that it was a bit stiff is one of the reasons I decided to go with the smaller board, I was either going with a 161 goliath with it being less stiff or the 157 Jam, and since I found the jam at a pretty good deal I went with it
