Bataleon Love Powder 2019
The 2019 Bataleon Love Powder is a female specific freeride masterpiece. Do you love powder? You'll love this board. The Love Powder craves deep days, and the Pow 3BT shape will give you effortless float in the nose and power in your tail to really slash apart stashes and surf the snow like never before. When all the powders gone, take the Love Powder to the groomers and it'll carve up a storm and speed down the slopes, with the 3BT giving your turns a more natural and catch-free feeling without losing any response or stability. For a powder board that doesn't have to go back in the bag when the powders all tracked out, begin your love affair with Bataleon.
Bataleon recommend you ride this board up to 5cm shorter than your standard all mountain board.
Board Type: Powder and Groomers
Camber Type: Pow 3BT
Pow 3BT has a narrow centrebase and maximum uplift in the nose with a flatter uplift in the tail. This allows the nose of the board to act much like the hull of a boat, giving you effortless float in powder and charging over rough snow with ease while keeping your tail stable, responsive, and powerful.
All 3BT boards have a positive camber profile but vary in the degree of camber and uplift across the width of the board. The Love Powder has a Mellow Camber profile, which allows it to flex and float easier.
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 mid flex for stability at speed, responsive turns, and powerful pop.
This board is designed to ride forwards for effortless float, high speed stability, and top end performance.
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: 148cm
Stance Set Back: 0mm
