The flex profiles of the airobic vs evil twin are not even close in my limited experience, interested in what Wired has to say about it. I wouldnt use an ET for anything beside big jumps because:
1. it has no dampening, so while its stiffness may keep the tips from chattering at speed, it bucks and feels every single little piece of chunder you hit, effectively ruining whatever stability the stiffness provides.
2. its pressable, if you like mountain buttering and want to press in the park it will work if u have the ability, but its not the board for the job.
I own both the proto and the ET, and while they fit almost the exact same description, the Proto is damp, more stable (try popping a huge ollie at speed with TBT, get slightly off balance = not good/scary), faster (sintered), significantly lighter....
Just saying one board I liked and the other I had alot of buyers remorse over and I can't sell it for 1/4 what I paid even with just a few days on it. Unless you need a big jump board specifically, or u weighed 260 instead of 160 I'd steer ya towards the airobic. Imho neither of these boards will hold up to bombing runs, and if you are set on Bataleon, I'd look at some of the other offerings maybe starting with the Goliath.
