Default 2011 Bataleon

I am looking at buying a 2011 Omni, but I know very little about brands and quality. Since this is last years model there is not much info on the board. I want make sure this board will work for me, size 15 boots and 250 pounds. Also can someone speak to the quality of these boards or this brand? I know I am asking a lot at once here, but any help would be awesome.

I'm a big fan of Bataleon, so I definitely recommend them.

With a size 15 boot you will definitely need a wide board. I don't even know if most wide boards are wide enough for size 15s.

the omni (to the best of my knowledge) doesnt come in a wide version, at least not last year. The waist is probably 260mm I ride a 167 undiputed with a size 13 boot and that is 260mm width. It is cutting it somewhat close. Odds are the omni will be too narrow. Looked up the stats for that years board and thed 163 is 257mm and the 167 is 260mm

I have a Goliath Wide that I've been riding for a few years, and also wear a size 15. If you are open to other models, you should take a look at the Goliath. It's a great all mountain stick.

I found a a site that has last years Gooliath in a 164, but not a wide. It looks like the biggest that board camw in for wide is 161, will that be long enough for 250 pounds?
