BATALEON’S GAME-CHANGING ALL-TERRAIN BOARD
The 2021 Bataleon Goliath has earned itself a reputation as being one of the most versatile and best performing boards on the market. Equally happy charging around the mountain as it is lapping the park, this iconic snowboard is the perfect choice for riders who want maximum performance no matter what or where they ride. Built around an advanced directional twin chassis and featuring Bataleon’s acclaimed Freestyle 3BT with Sidekicks base profile, the Goliaths combination of high-end construction and advanced design deliver a level of performance that is nothing short of outstanding. So, if you’re an experienced rider and you’re looking for a board that’s going to push your riding to the highest level across every discipline of the sport, then the Goliath could just be the snowboard for you.
Rider Style: All Terrain
Intermediate to advanced riders who are looking for a versatile, high-performance board that will take on absolutely everything on the mountain.
Shape Overview: Directional Twin
The Goliath utilises a state of the art blunt tip and tail directional twin chassis. This versatile shape combines all the feel and control of a true twin with the ride anything versatility of an all-terrain charger. So, when you’re hitting up the park, it gives you all the feel and control that you could ever need. However, by slightly increasing the volume in the nose, Bataleon creates a shape that provides excellent float in the pow and a stable and solid ride on the piste.
Profile: Freestyle Triple Base
As with the rest of the Bataleon range, it’s the unique Freestyle 3BT shape with sidekicks technology that sets the Goliath apart. This advanced 3D base profile combined with an overall traditional camber delivers genuinely stunning performance in all types of terrain. The Freestyle 3BT profile divides the base at the front and back of the board into three equally proportionate sections. The two side-base sections are then angled upwards with a medium height uplift to create the 3BT trademark profile. Combine this with the traditional camber, and you have a board that not only turns easier and with more stability, but you also get a board that floats better in pow as well as being more playful and forgiving for when you want to hit the park.
SideKick dramatically increases the side base uplift just outside the widest part of the nose and tail. This makes turn initiation smoother, increases float in powder and improves the handling of the board in rough terrain.
Internally the Goliath utilises some of the highest quality and most advanced materials available, heading this up is the Ultra-Light Core. This super-light wood core combines 70% lightweight paulownia and 30% durable poplar to create a responsive yet featherweight foundation for the board’s excellent performance. However, what makes this core special is the addition of the state of the art DRST. This innovative design inserts carbon tubes into pre-milled channels that run parallel to the Goliaths sidecut either side of the board. These energise the sidecut along its full length giving the Goliath one of the most dynamic and responsive rides there is. To this, Bataleon then fits structural layers formed from torsionally responsive tri-ax glass. These are then further reinforced with carbon stringers running either side of the insert pack to ensure that when you need the board to deliver, you can be sure it’s going to be there for you.
Base: Hyper Glide S (Sintered)
As the Goliath is all about high performance, Bataleon fit it with their high-end Hyper Glide S sintered base. This high-performance base material delivers a stunning performance as well as being strong and durable.
Float Surface: 153 = 62 156 = 64 159 = 67 158w = 69 161w = 71 164w = 73
New for this season on all Bataleon Boards is the Float-Surface rating. This measurement is calculated via a complex equation that takes into account surface area, nose and tail profile and set back. This then gives you a rating on how the board lifts and floats in powder, giving you a real comparison between the new generation of short, wide board against a traditional snowboard. Float surface starts at 50 for the lowest-rated board and goes up to 96 for the highest-rated board
