Default Thoughts on Bataleon?

So as I've stated in a previous thread, I'm looking for a new board for next year. A new option has burst onto the scene for me...the Bataleon Riot 155. Has anyone ridden this (or any other Bataleon) and have an opinion on the board/brand? I've been out of the purchasing scene for a few years so I've never even heard of Bataleon until now.

Sounds to me like you never ridden one. You should demo one out first because TBT might not be for you. Some people love and some hate it.

Yea, I was planning to demo the ET and Riot. I'm actually now leaning toward the ET 154 since I've spent my last 5 years on a Rome Anthem 158 and want something a little softer and more playful (but that will still be able to charge the rest of the mountain).

I love my 154 ET. I can still charge with it and it's soft enough to play around the mountain too. It's a really fun board.

Very biased here, but you are going to LOVE TBT. Please post your weight and foot size. That will help us make some solid suggestions.

i'm really interested in the bataleon ET

i'm 5'8' 165ish... size 10 nike zoom kaiju boot, ride 15/-12 with a 24.5" stance.

will the 152 be able to accomodate my boot size and stance width?

The current season 151 (there is not a 152) is 248 at the waist. The max insert spread is 24" (plus a fraction) but you could get a bit more if you use binding disk position. At max width you will have a width of 26. A size 10 foot is 28 cm, so you will have 1 cm of toe and heel overhang at straight angles. That will work, but at 165 and your stance, you may be happier on the 154. The 154 will allow your stance with no disk adjustment (62 cm) and is more centerred for your weight range. Plus you gain a few mm of width so that will free up all common stance angles.

My vote would be for the 154.

True, true... I'm about 170 pounds, size 10 boots.

Thanks for the info. that really helped. I'm not really too keen on getting a 154 because that's very similar to my current board which is 155 but I will definitely think about it.
