Stoked that you are considering Bataleon!

What stance angles and stance width do you ride? Where do you live/ride?

Thanks!

Nice to live so close to great riding!

The Goliath 156 cm will be ideal for you.

Happy riding!

Thanks, but the 156 isn't too narrow for me?

Hi Faso,

That is what I was checking. At 26.1 waist and 27.2 at your inserts, you will have just over 3 cm of total barefoot overhang. If you rode straight angles that would be too much but at 12, 12 you will cut that down to roughly 1.5 cm of toatal overhang or .75 cm for toe an heel. That is about as perfect as it gets

What are these measures "26.1 waist and 27.2 at your inserts" you wrote?

Really stoked to try a TBT board this year. I need help picking one tho, Im 155 pound and stocking whopping 8.5 boots. Im looking for a board that can get me over those bigger park jumps and kickers. What size? and what board?

So I thought I had my new board search nailed down to 2 boards: GNU Billy Goat or NS Heritage. Then I started reading this thread and the Bataleon Omni looks very interesting. Here's the info on me:

Age: 31
Height: 6'
Weight: 197lbs.
Boots: K2 T1 size 10
Angles: +21/+9
Geography: PNW
Terrain: Everything but park, enjoy bombimg early morning groomers and pow stashes.
Current board: 2005 Burton Canyon 163
Riding level: Intermediate, I don't hit any big jumps or cliffs but I'm really good at linking turns at speed and I don't have any problems with steeps, trees, and moguls.

I've enjoyed the Canyon, it is fast and stable but it does seem slow edge to edge and I would like something that I can turn quicker with in the trees and moguls. So how is the Omni going to compare to those other 2 boards and my Canyon? I know any of these 3 boards would work but I'd like to figure if one would be a better fit than the others. Thanks.

if anyone was wondering about the flex of the boards...here is an example of the disaster and evil twin...these are the lobster snowboards however the specs and materials will show you that the lobster parkboard is the same exact board as the evil twin and the jibboard is the disaster, also the lobster girlboard is the distortia...not surprising im sure halldor and eiki had some input on tweaking the bataleon design for lobster and bataleon decided to do the changes on their boards as well.

...anyway here is a little video they made about the jib tbt and twin tbt and they do a little flexing at the end
the disaster/jibboard looks ridiculously soft!
