Default Bataleon boards

What do you guys think of bataleon? Cheap and easy to snap. I'm looking at the global warmer or just getting an arbor westmark

I hardly call them "cheap and easy to snap."


I would however call them "killer and a blast to ride."





Bataleon over arbor any day. For park boards I have yet to find anything more fun to ride than a disaster and GW.

Definitely not cheap or easy to snap. I have fucked mine up on rocks but it still rides like the day I bought it. Never blown an edge which I can't say I've never done on any other brand I've owned. Not the best for pow but dope for park.

I have a Bataleon Jam for my freestyle board, and its durable and definitely not cheaply made. I love TBT so much, I ordered a heavily discounted 2013 Enemy for my freeride board, which should be in the mail today. Can't wait to ride it.

yeah, i've been trying to get on a lot of board shapes and profiles this year from different companies, and i have to say that bataleon/lobster are consistently the most fun boards i've ridden.

Why do you want a Bataleon? For TBT I am assuming... I personally ride an Omni, and I do mostly all mountain as it has the camber I want and some rocker for easy traverse and nice landing after some air.

What's your style ridin'?

If you're a jibber or park guy... the Evil Twin is sick. The Jam, Whatever and Goliath are sweet boards too with a little more freeride, and the GW sets a standard for park boards like the Evil Twin in my opinon.

I ride park almost the whole time but some days I'll just chill and cruise around, and always get a pow day in when there available. I had a burton custom which rides sweet but it's lost its spark in the park and doesn't treat me like it used to
