Bataleon Evil Twin Snowboard
Bataleon Evil Twin Snowboard
The Evil Twin has been at the heart of the 3D revolution for nearly two de - cades now. It’s a rider favorite for a reason that’s been lovingly upgraded year after year to keep it ahead of the pack. Now rocking carbon milled straight into the core and SideKick™ at the wide points, it turns better than ever on groomers and can still be relied on to destroy every feature in the park.
3BT Technology: Through lots of research, analyzing, tinkering, and testing, Bataleon came up with the patented 3BT™ shaping technique. All Bataleon boards feature tip to tail positive camber in combination with lifted contact points at the widest part of the board. Over the years Bataleon has perfected 3BT™ to best perform for every kind of riding by fine tuning the synergies between the flat base, side bases, radii and camber.
Flat Base Riding
The widest section of the board is lifted off the snow while riding flat based. This allows you to ride straight without hooking up or needing to keep your edges engaged.
When set on a slight angle, the sidebase starts to engage near the bindings. Unlike traditional flat boards, pressure remains constant along the contact edge.
While on edge, the 3D shaped sidecut forms a complete arc with the snow, offering unparalleled grip and turning power.

- Solid Walls Sidewall
- Hyper Glide S Base
- 3BT: Triple Base Technology™ is awesome. The lifted sidebase areas at the widest points of the board make a lot of sense. The boards turn smoother and faster and it helps when you are not completely clean on your landings.
- Sidekick: SideKick™ dramatically increases the sidebase 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.
- C.S.T. Supertubes: Central Super Tube. Hollow carbon core upgrades that are inserted into the core. The hollow carbon tubes greatly increase the woodcore’s pop and reduce weight.
- Carbon Stringers Extra Layup: The type and placement of fiberglass greatly influences a board’s flex and riding characteristics. Boards are built with a layer of fiberglass above and below the woodcore.
- Triax Laminate: A three-way weave of fiberglass is light, strong and responsive. We use this to beef up the flex pattern.
- Ultralight Woodcore: A very light 70-30 paulownia and poplar wood blend for an unparalleled strength to weight ratio.
- Flip Flop Base: Producing two or more base color options minimizes p-tex waste. That is why you will find flip flop base options on most die-cut bases. Usually this is not an option at checkout, but a fun little surprise!
Precision, control and pop.
The side profile of camber looks like a rainbow. Tried and true, camber has been the dominant board bend in the snowboard industry for almost 40 years. Adopted from the bend of alpine skis, camber snowboards deliver precise turning and edge control, with spring-loaded pop due to the bend in the board, providing better jumping characteristics. Advanced riders tend to prefer this bend, especially for hard carving and high-speed riding. Even when it comes to softer park snowboards, camber boards deliver exceptional pop and control.
A completely symmetrical shape, which thrives in a variety of freestyle situations. At the core of its design, the twin shape features an identical nose and tail shape, which provides an identical feel and predictable maneuverability whether riding regular or switch. Although originally developed with park riders in mind, twin shapes have also grown to be embraced by many all-mountain riders that like to bring a skateboard style riding out of the park and onto the entire mountain.
Flex: 3-5 (Scale 1 - 10)
Versatility at its finest. From the park to the peak, and anywhere in between.
Standard sintered base that’s tough and fast, and faster when waxed.
