BATALEON GOLIATH SNOWBOARD
BATALEON GOLIATH SNOWBOARD
A Giant of the All-Mountain Game.
The Goliath is firmly established as a classic within the Bataleon range and an industry wide best seller. Its balance of freestyle agility and freeride power is ideal for the solid rider who needs one stick to do it all, and They’ve brought a few subtle design tweaks over the years to ensure it remains best in class. Light, fast and snappy as hell, this 3D directional twin is limitless and future proof.
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.
Freestyle 3BT: Freestyle 3BT™ has the sidebase and centerbase areas equally proportioned, with a medium uplift angle. With added length in the nose, Freestyle 3BT™ boards let you get creative across the whole mountain.
SideKick: SideKick™ builds on the concept of Triple Base by increasing the sidebase uplift just outside the widest points of the nose and tail. The tips become more like a hull, boosting float in deep snow and slicing through crud. It also helps the board to roll quickly and evenly from edge to edge.
Triax Laminate: Our three-way fibreglass weave is light, strong and crazy responsive. We use this to beef up the flex pattern on our more aggressive boards.
Ultra Light Core: A 70/30 Swiss paulownia and poplar blend that offers awesome strength to weight.
D.R.S.T. Super Tube: Similar to DST but with four extra Super Tubes (six in total) running parallel to the board radius, delivering extra power to the edges.
Carbon Stringers: Tried and tested carbon technology. Deployed in different areas to fine-tune the feel of each model.
Hyper Glide S: Bataleon's standard sintered base that’s durable and fast – and even faster when you keep it waxed.
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.
Directional twins are a combination of true twins and directional boards, combining the best elements of both designs to create one versatile board that can do it all.
Directional twins have a symmetrical flex pattern, but the shape of a directional board, with a longer nose and shorter tail. This design provides freestyle flexibility with the improved floatation qualities of a directional board. Some directional twins may have a twin shape, better for riding in both directions, but matched with an asymmetrical flex pattern. The tail keeps stiff for turns and efficiency with the nose long and soft for powder and stability.
