Bataleon Whitegold North Snowboard
Ginsu-like slicing power for cold and steep declines
Designed for the Great White North (and researched and developed in British Columbia), pull this from your quiver when the conditions call for something that will handle deep and fast. Centered on Bataleon’s propriety very light core made of Swiss poplar and paulownia, this is a true sword with German steel edges. Carbon strips run lengthwise (protected by bamboo sidewalls), making this a tight and precise ride on the super-tough sintered base. Portuguese-cork (just like the best wineries use) slabs atop handle high-speed vibrations. If you are being dropped from a helicopter, this is what you want strapped to your boots.
Handmade in Austria
Notes: A 23mm wide bamboo stringer running along the center of the board allows it to be converted to a split without damaging the core.
