I'm 6'1"/180 lbs and can't decide between the 154cm or the 157cm ET. The lowered effective edge on the 2012 models has me thinking 157cm...but I want the board as skatey as possible (I have an Undisputed 163 for the deep stuff). What's your opinion and why?
Hi,

If you were stoked with the feel of your 55 Riot in terms of contact then you will want the 157 ET 2012. It actually has 1 cm less contact than your 155, so it is in effect a shorter deck. That combined with the flex differenc should give you the change you were looking for.

STOKED!

Primarily white and green. The Tie Dye portion is green which has some blue.

Default not sure about goliath size

Hi there,

Been looking at this thread for a while now.

I'm mainly an all mountain rider, 60% slopes, 20% powder, 20% park. About 4 years of expierience.
I've tested the Goliath last week (loved it!), but I'm not sure about the size:

5'9", 165 lbs, size 10.5 : Would the Goliath 156 be the best choice?

The Goliath 156 is a textbook choice for you. You are going to love that deck.

I'm looking to buy a Bataleon board this year. I'm about 5'8" and I weight around 175. I have a 07 or 08 GNU CHB with MTX(156) right now with Rome 390s and Nike Zoom size 11. I like to mainly just ride, bomb down mountains, and once in awhile hit jumps and boxes. I'm looking into getting something shorter and softer. I mainly snowboard at Big Bear and Mountain High. I was looking at the Fun Kink(149 or 153), but I was wondering what you would recommend for me and your opinion on the Fun Kink

tnx man, just ordered it. will recieve it within 2 days!

One more question: My Girlfriend was also looking for a TBT board.
She tested the violenza last week decided to go for it.

Her size:

5'2", 110 lbs, size 5 women! so a very small girl

One small problem: she tested a 149 board (no other available while testing), this is to big for her, but she could handle it. The smallest size available for the violanza is 146. Normally i would say this board is a little to big, but the bataleon salesman at the test site mentioned that this wouldn't really be a big problem, since you won't really notice the extra inches because of tbt. And after all, she liked the 149, which was even bigger. Furthermore: the big advantage of the violenza is the small waist. It is quite hard to find a board thats not too wide with size 5.


So she ordered the 146 violenza...I'm wondering if she made the right choice...

Hi Aznglfer,

Please measure your foot using this method:

Kick your heel (barefoot please, no socks) back against a wall. Mark the floor exactly at the tip of your toe (the one that sticks out furthest - which toe this is will vary by rider). Measure from the mark on the floor to the wall. That is your foot length and is the only measurement that you will want to use. Measure in centimeters if possible, but if not, take inches and multiply by 2.54 (example: an 11.25 inch foot x 2.54 = 28.57 centimeters).

She made the perfect choice. Tip to tip length means nothing. We write this a lot, but this a a classic example of why. Consider that last years Violenza 145 had 111 cm of contact and this years 146 has 109 cm. This years 146 should be considered the "shorter" board.
