Bataleon Party Wave 2019
The 2019 Bataleon Party Wave is a short fat shape that is destined for good time on and off piste. A party by itself, the Party Wave is meant to be ridden 5-10cm shorter than your all mountain board for maximum performance and maximum fun, giving you extra agility and less weight without losing the stability to charge through powder and pull off powerful carves. The shorter tail and lengthened nose will give you effortless float in powder and nimble performance through the trees, but put the Party Wave to work on groomers and it'll carve up a storm. With freeride capabilities of a board twice its size and a camber and flex that lends itself to playful creative lines, the Party Wave gets the party started and keeps it going all day long.
Board Type: All Mountain
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 Party Wave 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: Core Core
The Core Core is a full Poplar wood core with Beech hardwood laid tip to tail, reinforcing the inserts and increasing pop.
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: 154cm
Stance Set Back: 30mm
