BATALEON THUNDER 156 2021
THUNDER AND LIGHTNING ON THE SLOPES!
Based on the award winning women’s Storm, the all new Thunder is a men’s directional freeride board built to handle it all. Strap this beast under your feet and get ready to ride lighting.
The Thunder allows for destroying any terrain. It/s made for you, to ride the hardest and fastest lines.
The Thunder has a directional shape. The Freeride 3BT™ is extra wide to avoid overhang. And it also floats well in powder. The new SideKick™ Tips increase the edge uplift on the widest points of nose and tail for easier turn initiation, more float and better handling in rough terrain.
The Freeride 3BT™ consists of a relatively narrow centerbase and has a little more sidebase uplift on the nose than on the tail. This helps you keeping your nose up in deep snow. The dynamic camber is perfectly dosed for aggressive and powerful shredding.
The flex is medium-hard and just perfect for slaying the mountain and powder.
A poplar and paulownia wood core is additionally reinforced with light and strong tri-axial fibreglass. This means massive pop and stability. Carbon stringers are placed lengthwise along the whole core. They give the board some extras of torsional strength, edge hold and snap. The sintered Hyper Glide S base is hard and fast, but wax it good!
The Backseat Inserts allow for a setback on the deepest powder days for added float.
Extruded: low maintenance and extremely durable, ideal for jibbers and weekend shredders
