POWDER HOUND THAT LOVES TO PLAY ON PISTE

A stalwart of the Bataleon range, the CT has long been a favourite of pretty much everybody that works at or rides for the brand. Designed to deliver stunning performance both on the piste and in the pow, this superb board is one of the most enjoyable to ride powder focussed freeride boards on the market. Key to its amazing performance is the combination of fully directional tapered shape, Pow 3BT + SideKick technology and easy going relaxed construction. This delivers a board that gives you effortless float in the deepest snow combined with a level of performance on the piste that'll leave you laying trenches for anyone following. The fact it can do this while still delivering a playful and fun ride will have you wondering if you should ever bother riding anything else.

Rider Style
Intermediate to pro level riders who are looking for a great fun to ride board for blasting powder, tree runs and groomers.

Shape Overview
Built around a fully directional tapered shape, it's pretty clear on first glance what the CT is all about. The first thing that you'll notice is that state of the art powder nose. Featuring a longer wider profile it works in perfect harmony with the short narrower CT profiled tail to deliver the perfect balance of lift at the front and sink at the rear. Now that short tail isn't just there to sink in deep snow, it's also there to power up the back of the board at the tail end of a carve to let you drive both into and out of the turn. Match this with the long effective edge, and you've got one of the most solid and stable boards in the class. Because of the CT's unique shape, you ride this around 5cm shorter than you would normally ride.

Profile
Now what makes the CT so special, is the combination of innovative Pow 3BT base + SideKick technology with the traditional camber profile. Pow 3BT is the most directional version of the triple base profile and features a narrow centre base with larger side base uplifts in the nose, giving unrivalled lift and float at the front. That larger and longer uplift also gives the board effortless edge to edge transition and drives the contact points into the snow. Now the shorter and lower uplift at the tail creates a more solid and reassuring feel in the back of the board, and with the extra pop and power from the traditional camber, really allows you to drive the back of the board hard.

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 CT takes advantage of Bataleon's high-end construction and heading this up is the new Light Core. Combining an even mix of poplar and paulownia, it delivers the perfect balance of light weight, durability and playful performance. To this, Bataleon then adds their state of the art D.S.T (Dual Super Tube) Technology. This places two hollow carbon rods into milled out channels on the base of the core, stepping up pop as well as powering up the camber for more snap and drive. Now the secret weapon in the CT's armoury is the inclusion of the softer flexing bi-ax glass structural layers. These give the board its unique, playful feel transforming it from just another powder board into something a little bit special.

Base
To deliver great performance across all snow conditions, the CT utilises the durable Super Slick X Base. This high quality extruded base has the highest molecular weight of any extruded base on the market. That means it's tougher and faster while remaining virtually maintenance free.
