I think the Airobic has the best graphics for 2012.

I was hoping that the 2012 ET spelled out Bataleon similar to this year's model.

Bataleon's official 2012 Flex scale:

0 - Unbendable mega stiff
2 - Very stiff
3 - Stiff but ridable
4 - Agressive
5 - Very responsive
6 - good overall freestyle
7 - playful
8 - soft
9 - very soft / noodly
10 - wet towel

Note - We don't do stiffness. We do flex. Our flex-rate is a scale from 0 to 10 where 0 is a super stiff board and 10 is a super noodly board. In the flexrating you'll find three valuses, one for the nose-flex, one for the flex beteween the inserts and one for the tail-flex. So for example a 5-6-5 flex is a board with a medium flex that is slightly softer between the bindings.

2 new TBT Flavors: Jib TBT and All Mountain TBT

Jib TBT: The triple base starts under the bindings. The center of the 3 bases is wider than on any of the other boards.

All Mountain TBT: A directional version of the Freestyle TBT where there is more angle in the nose TBT.

Also new on the Omni and Undisputed: Backseat inserts. This is an extra set of Wayback inserts so you can go all the way back on those mega deep days.

The ET Classic is unchanged. It is the same as it has been for the lat two seasons.

The ET has the new Twin TBT. It is slighly softer than the Classic.and has a slightly softer mid section than nowe and tail.

The Goliath uses the new Freestyle TBT (narrower center base than Twin TBT), has a uniform flex pattern and is designed to be the most all around flavor of Bataleon boards.

What is the difference between this years TBT and next years?
The biggest change is to the TBT structure itself. For 2012 TBT extends further out to the tip and tail. Where it used to end at the contact points, it now runs smothly all the way to the tips. The nose and tail ramps have been updated on every model becoming moderately longer and smoother. Along with the TBT change, this dramatically smoothes the contours and reduces petential grab spots. These are further refinements to an already refined product. You will also see a reshaping of the tip and tail to more blunted outlines. This is great for reduced swing weight, stability in presses, power in ollies, etc. 4 different carbon layups are being used in different models in 2012.
