The 2019 Bataleon Fun.Kink is Bataleons 'funnest ride on Earth', and for 2019 it just gets even better. Featuring the updated 3rd Generation 3BT, the Fun.Kink is now more catch-free and forgiving but still offers the same fun-focused performance that has won the snowboarding community over. Regardless of where you like to ride, the Fun.Kink will perform thanks to the Twin 3BT shape and soft-mid flex that promotes progression and creativity. There's a very good chance the Fun.Kink will be your new favourite board.
Board Type: All Mountain Freestyle
Camber Type: Twin 3BT
Twin 3BT is a versatile freestyle focused profile with a wide centrebase for added stability at speed without losing jib capabilities. Perfect for all kinds of park riding.
All 3BT boards have a positive camber profile but vary in the degree of camber and uplift across the width of the board. The Fun.Kink has a Mellow Camber profile, which allows it to flex and float easier but still stay poppy and responsive.
Sidekick - Sidekick dramatically increases the amount of uplift just outside the widest points of the nose and tail. This makes turn initiation smoother, enhances float, and improves handling in rough terrain.
Flex: 4/10 (1 = soft, 10 = stiff)
A soft-mid flex for big presses, easy turns, and playful riding all over the mountain.
Shape: 99% Twin
This board has a twin contact shape with an extra centimetre on the nose, which enhances all mountain performance but doesn't affect your switch riding.
Core: Light Core
The Light Core features a 50-50 blend of Poplar and Paulownia woods for optimal strength to weight properties.
D.S.T - The Dual Super Tube upgrade puts two hollow carbon rods in the bottom of the core, enhancing pop and putting more snap into the camber.
Biax Laminate - A time-tested two way weave that keeps the board light, strong, and snappy, without increasing torsional stiffness.
Base: Super Slick X
The Super Slick X base has the maximum molecular content available for an extruded base, making it super slick, incredibly tough, and basically maintenance-free.
Boards Lengths: 151cm, 154cm, 157cm
Stance Set Back: 0mm
