Created by nature or designed by man, the most successful designs take into consideration the forces they will be submitted to. When Bataleon were developing 3BT, they analyzed how snowboards look when put under pressure. What happens when
you drive it through a transition or jam it through a turn? Triple Base happens. Triple Base is the pre-shaped form of a board in motion, and just like the wings of a plane or the hull of a boat is curved to perform, your snowboard should also be shaped for its environment.
SideKick Tips greatly enhance 3BT's advantages by dramatically increasing the side base uplift at the widest points of the nose and tail. This makes turn initiation even smoother, increases float in powder and handling of the board in rough terrain.
The type and placement of fiberglass greatly influence a board’s flex and riding characteristics. Boards are built with a layer of fiberglass above and below the woodcore. Bataleon and Lobster use a combination of two main types of fiberglass: biaxial and triaxial. Biaxial fiberglass has fibers running every 90 degrees. Triaxial fiberglass has fibers running every 45 degrees.
The base is important as it’s your direct connection to the snow. Bataleon and Lobster boards are built with two varying types of extruded and sintered bases fine-tuned for different conditions and riding styles. All our boards are finished with factory wax before they leave the factory.
Bataleon and Lobster's Super Tubes are hollow carbon core upgrades that are inserted into the core in 3 different configurations. The hollow carbon tubes greatly increase the woodcore’s pop and reduce weight.
The wood core is the soul of the board. The type of wood, the grain orientation, and the overall thickness and shaping greatly determine the way it rides. Bataleon and Lobster source a number of high-quality woods to create our wood cores.
