Bataleon?

Yo, I've been hearing a lot of hype about the Bataleons. I hear the TBT tech is incredible.

I was thinking about going for the skate banana, because I want a decently soft board that's easy to butter, and i liked the reverse camber and magnetraction, but I've heard the TBT accomplishes all the perks of RC without the downsides. Can someone tell me a bit about the Bataleon boards?

Oh and, I weigh 140, and i want mainly a park board that can also handle pow pow and speed runs decently. So I was wondering how stiff or soft the Bataleon boards are. I'm looking at the evil twin right now because i need a smaller board (147).

Depends what type of pow we're talkin about ...

A flexible park oriented board will never be able to plow chop, float, or go as fast as a stiffer board...thats the price you pay. There are some boards(dont know much about Bataleon but im sure they have one) that gives you just the right amount of both.

Personally i think the Evil Twin would fit better. Its the same board just slightly stiffer..

'09 151 Never Summer SL-R
'10 K2 T1 DB Bots
'09 Burton Cartel Bindings

I tested the Evil Twin and really liked it. You only recognize the TBT when you need it!

Obviously, if you can try to demo it. You have to take a companies marketing claims with a grain of salt. OF course Bataleon will say their TBT tech makes everyhting better and more fun, just like Lib Tech will say their tech makes everything better and more fun. To compare one company to another in terms of board performance is kind of pointless, what you like in a board is mostly personal preference and you won't know what you like until you try a few things out. Every company has their own feel. I am really stoked on2 boards right now, the Burton Hero is what i ride mostly, but i also break out an Arbor Crossbow on the days where i just want to ride fast and really aggressively.
