FAST AND POWERFUL PISTE CHARGER – NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED

The Carver is Bataleon's entry into the Freeride/Carving genre that is taking snowboarding by storm. Built around a wide profile tapered directional shape, it reduces toe and heel overhang to an absolute minimum. This allows you to lay out those Euro carves without ever having to worry that you're going to blow out by dragging your toes or heels. Featuring a low profile short nose with powerful short tail and Freeride 3BT base with SideKicks technology, this high-performance piste destroyer is without a doubt the standout board in this performance inspired category.

Rider Style
Powerful riders looking for a hard-charging piste board that delivers the ultimate in fast, powerful snowboarding.

Shape Overview
The Carvers fully directional wide platform tapered shape has been designed to deliver the ultimate on-piste performance. Its extra width allows you to crank the board over when euro carving, eliminating any hint of toe and heel drag. Now that unique shape also features a low profile tip and tail design; these dramatically reduce the swing weight of the Carver giving the board a more stable and controlled feel throughout the whole turn. Also, the freecarve inspired cut tail allows you to power up the board for explosive edge to edge transition.

Profile
Key to The Carvers performance is the unique Freeride 3BT shape with SideKicks technology. This directional 3BT shape has a narrow centre base with a longer and more pronounced side base uplift in the nose than in the tail. This fully directional 3BT design increases float at the front of the board, but more importantly, it improves turn initiation and stability. The shorter less pronounced 3BT in the tail lets you drive the board through the turn. Finally, the narrow centre base not only delivers swift edge-to-edge transfer, but it also works in perfect harmony with the traditional camber to ensure that you also get a board that is responsive and powerful throughout the turn.

Side Kicks
SideKick increases the side base uplift just outside the widest part of the nose and tail, making turn initiation smoother, increasing float in powder and improves handling of the board in rough terrain.

Construction
Internally, the Carver utilises a combination of state of the art materials and advanced design. Heading this up is the Light core. Combining paulownia and poplar, it delivers the perfect balance of strength, performance and durability. To this Bataleon then add their new D.R.S.T technology. This inserts carbon tubes into channels milled into the core running parallel to the sidecut, powering up the edges to give the board a level of edge hold and stability that is nothing short of mind-blowing. Now to give the Carver its dynamic ride, the structural layers are formed from torsionally stiff tri-ax weave glass. This is then further enhanced with Carbon Stringers running either side of the insert pack from tip to tail. These add additional power and pop through the length giving the Carver its explosive and responsive ride.

Base
To ensure that the Carver performs at the highest level, Bataleon fit it with their high-performance Ultra Glide S base. This super tough maximum molecular weight base material hauls ass as well as being super tough.
