I had never heard of Bataleon until today. They were the only snowboard company to show at the Okemo demo day (apparently there were other board companies lined up, but they all flaked out when the event got delayed due to rain yesterday). I demoed the Goliath 157 and my buddy took the Jam. These boards were tons of fun.
They have this triple base technology that accomplishes the feat of catching an edge only when you need it on ice and carves (and not when you don't on landings, butters, and straight lines). I've never really complained about my Burton Elite 162, but this Goliath was seriously fun. I could flip the thing around in a pinch, pop it quick and high, and shred down ice and hardpack without hesitation. The thing was featherlight and I was overrotating my 180s, but popping off little knolls and landing 270 didn't seem to matter. It was a huge confidence booster and I definitely recommend trying one out.
The Jam behaved roughly the same way, but a little stiffer.
As far as the Bataleon company goes, I don't know much about them, but the two reps who showed at Okemo were chill and I give them mad props for making the trip out to show off their gear. I'm now seriously considering buying something out of the Bataleon lineup (most likely an EvilTwin or Goliath).
