Bataleon ET and ET Classic: Whats the difference?
 
Hey guys I'm really interested in the Bataleon ET for my first board. I've done enough riding to probably call myself intermediate and it seems like a good choice for what I want to do with snowboarding.

Anyways I'm just curious if there are any real differences in the ET and the ET Classic (besides graphics of course). And I also know they have different sizing options, but aside from that is there anything else thats noticeable?

Thanks guys!

The new ET has slightly redesigned TBT technology.
The classic is a bit wider, bataleon rep told me it rides likes a mid-wide.

Other than that there pretty similar. I just bought the new ET a few days ago.

Have you tried it out yet? And thanks for the info. I've only ridden rental boards so I'm not sure how a wide or mid-wide would feel. But I'll probably just stick with the newer ET.

Not yet, still recovering from a foot surgery hoping to try it out late Feb, mainly bought it for next season though.

I've had both. The way I see it, the slightly wider ET Classic is better for park while the slightly narrower new ET is a little better for all mountain.
