I actually just picked up a a Goliath the other day. I was kind of unsure if this board would suit what i wanted. I talked to a rep at a local shop near me an dhe said that the Bataleon boards were gearde dmore towards park, rails, and jibbing, which I thought was kind of interetsing because after reading a few posts here and what the bataleon website said about the board, I thought those POV were kind of conflicting.
I decided to send a Bataleon an e-mail. They got back to me within 24hrs. I told him that I am a bigger guy 6'2" 235 and I dont really ride the park, but I hit jumps, pop rollers, and mostly do free ride and all mtn riding. This was his response to me.
"The Goliath is a perfect choice for how you explained your type of riding. This board is defiantly not made to just stay in the park although it does handle it self well there.
Many of our pro's choose this board for there all around stick so next you should decide between the 161W and the 164W. Either way you will enjoy the ride!
Hit us up anytime!
I am going to Killington this weekend to check it out, and I will let you know what I think when I get back.
I can defintely tell you that this board is defintely not flat!
