smokin deal depending upon condition

I would jump all over that deal!! big time. Is it used? how used? base, edge condition? This board is a true twin and pretty stiff longitudinally. Its got all the bling bling enternal goodies... kevlar and extra carbon fiber reinforcements, and Bataleons freestyle TBT base. Not aware of any diff from 09 boards. Its a lot of board but I think you can grow with it.

Sure it will handle the pow, but this is a high end freestyle slaying weapon.. It handles well all mountain but is at home in the park and pipe. You may get different opinions here, but I Ride a Riot amongst other Bataleon boards depending upon what I will be concentrating on that day.. Not my first choice for free riding the whole mtn.. thats just me mate.

FYI its a wide waisted board 26.0, so you need to take that into consideration as well.

Is the 08 the one with the guitar graphic? $180 is a heck of a deal.

How long is the one you found for $180? If it was a 151 it might work.
(BTW, you said Riot, Goliath, then Riot again in your question.)

This sounds like the one I've been talking to the seller about. All he has left is the 155. It has been used (see this thread http://www.snowboardingforum.com/gen...k-patient.html). The 155 is listed with a waist width of 25.2, so I think he'd be fine on it. I'm still on the fence about it, but the price is tempting.
