Triple Base Technology, yah for it?
I've posted this question before, but it's a new season and no doubt more people have tired out Bataleon boards. What is everyone's opinion of TBT? Do you think it works or do you know it works?
I own a Bataleon Goliath, and so far as I can see, it's a great board. No problems riding switch, hitting jumps, carving, riding pow, etc. I've never used it on rails/boxes however (If I remember correctly). I used my NS EVO for that.
Anyhow, I've heard some people say that it takes them a few runs to get used to TBT. I've even heard that in a couple video reviews. I've also heard that TBT is great for spinning, and TBT is bad for spinning. The reviewer who said it was bad said that it carved off the lip too much because of TBT and you need to spin more flat based.
As far as getting used to the board, it took me zero runs to get used to it:P I rode it without a problem the very first time I took it out. The only thing I noticed was that it was quicker edge to edge than cambered boards I rode, but it didn't throw me off at all. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by it. This is the one feature of TBT that I believe truly works. As far as it being better for "everything" in terms of park performance (untested on rails/boxes specifically), it works just as well as my NS EVO, and the Goliath is all mountain with a slight setback. As far as buttering, I'm not great at that so I really have no comment.
