BATALEON FUN.KINK 162 WIDE 2021
TO TWIN OR NOT TO TWIN – THAT IS NO QUESTION
This board is for the far off features of your local park, or even beyond. Doesn’t matter where the park ends and the pow begins. The Fun.Kink means high-end flexibility and control.
Rails and kickers of this world, this is where the Fun.Kink feels home. But wait, also powder does feel better with this board for all levels of riders, from beginner to pro.
The wide landing platform of Twin 3BT™ is paired with the 99% twin outline, making for an exceptionally all-around board that excels in park, freestyle as well as side-country and powder situations.
The 3BT™ (Triple Base) profile combines a camber with a 3D shape at the nose and tail. Just like the shape of a spoon, this lifts the contact points off the snow to reduce hang-ups and increase the float in pow, without compromising stability, pop or grip on hard snow. The Fun.Kink features a mellow camber.
The soft-medium flex (4/10) of the Fun.Kink is perfect for jibbing the park and slashing pow. It’s ultra-flexy and super playful.
The Light Core is a 50-50 Swiss paulownia and poplar woods blend for optimal strength to weight properties. The traditional and time tested two-way weave of fibreglass is light, strong and responsive, keeping the board snappy without adding torsional stiffness. The D.S.T, the Dual Super Tube wood core upgrade, has two hollow carbon rods milled into the bottom of the core to enhance pop. The Super Slick X Base is not a basic extruded base. It has the highest molecular content available for an extruded base. That means it’s super slick, durable and maintenance-free.
Extruded: low maintenance and extremely durable, ideal for jibbers and weekend shredders
Sintered: hard and fast, but a little higher maintenance, the best choice for powder
Premium: highest quality and speed with carbon/graphite additives
