Thanks for your time.
Curious about all this buttering. Even with a low flexing bataleon, a rider should experience easier buttering because of the Tbt? Side by side, camber vs Tbt, same flex rating; say neutral. Would the bataleon rider be at much more ease?

Time to make a video.

Can't wait for the upcoming season. I should just drive up mt. Hood. Wooo!

All Bataleon boards are now in stock, counted and racked. Our web guys will have them on the site today and then we will take our own measurements. I will try to get you this info tomorrow.

Thanks!

My ET has Flow AT SE's on it. Flux DMCC's are killer as well. Many more options, these are just the first two that struck me (and the two that I have ridden most recently on an ET).

Do you mean bindings? All 2012 Flow bindings (every model, size, and color) are in stock now and will be on the site later this week. All Flux bindings (every model, size, and color) should be up early next week. Raiden bindings, Gnu bindings, and Roxy bindings are all either in stock now or coming in the next week.

I'm riding with a 9.5 sz boot @ 175lbs, should I get the 158 goliath or the wide version?

Where do you ride? 156 might be best.
