Whatever the Conditions, Whatever the Terrain...you get it. This is designed to be a one board quiver for the New Bataleon rider.
Sounds a lot like the Riot. How is this different?

It looks like the Whatever has a freestyle TBT profile instead of the twin TBT that the Airobic, ET, and Riot have. It's also extruded instead of the Riot's sintered. It's kinda like a mixture of a Goliath/Riot maybe? or the Jam/Riot?

The Riot and the ET use Twin TBT, but the Airobic 2012 uses Jib TBT as does the new Disaster 2012.

Also, Bataleon is categorizing the Whatever and the Goliath "Freestyle", while the Riot is categorized "Park Freestyle". The Jam is categorized "All Mountain Freestyle".

Also, note the construction differences:

Whatever: Core Core, Bi ax Laminate, Extruded base
Goliath: Core Core, Tri ax Laminate, Sintered base
Riot: Core Core, Tri ax Laminate, Sintered base

Wow, they've added some new categories. Can't wait to see the catalog. i've been enjoying my 09 Riot but feel the need of something more playful. Taking a serious look at the ET.

Every shape in Bataleon's line except for the ET Classic has changed for 2012.

So the Goliath has a sintered base this year?

Will the ET also have a sintered base, or will that still be the extruded/sintered blend?

All 3 of the ET's (ET, ET Classic, and Artist Series) and the Goliath have sinterred bases for 2012.
