Bataleon Goliath X Beyond Medals 158 Wide 2020
The Special Edition Goliath
It’s called Goliath cause it’s a beast. And this beast is a collab with BYNDxMDLS!
Several built-in stringers and reinforcements optimize its pop, board control and stability. You can confidently sling yourself over the next giant powder or park kicker, cause you got a perfect mix of big mountain performance and freestyle finesse under your feet. Goliath was a giant and that’s all you can say about this board, too.
The Goliath is gigantic on the whole mountain. Huge backcountry booters are its favourite, but it also rides strong in the park.
The Directional Twin Shape has a twin contact shape with an extra centimetre added to the nose for a directional outline, perfectly balanced for all-mountain riding. A versatile board like the Goliath needs the Freestyle 3BT™ with Sidekick™ Tips. The wide base and centre base areas are proportional in width. The side base starts with a medium uplift angle and dramatically increases at the widest point of the board. This shape is the most versatile in the line and offers a powerful and reactive ride with freestyle tendencies and powder float.
The Freestyle 3BT™ has a narrower centre base than the Twins, but a longer contact length between the feet and a medium camber.
The mid-stiff flex (6/10) provides stability and aggressiveness in every terrain.
The Light Core is made of poplar and paulownia and additionally reinforced with triaxial fibreglass This means massive pop and stability. Carbon stringers are placed lengthwise from inserts to inserts near the edge. The D.S.T, Dual Super Tube wood core upgrade, has two hollow carbon rods milled into the bottom of the core to enhance pop and give the camber more snap. The Hyper Glide S Base is Bataleon’s standard sintered base that’s tough and fast, and faster when waxed.
