It's 20 years since Bataleon first came to market with its innovative Triple Base technology. Back then, few people would have thought that 20 years later, they'd be one of the world's biggest and most visible snowboard brands. To celebrate the fact that they are, Bataleon has taken their best-selling Goliath and given us a special edition board that takes the all-new shape and construction from the regular Goliath but gives us a unique graphic featuring every single board graphic that Bataleon has released over the past 20 years. A must-have for any snowboard collector or fan of Bataleon, this outstanding graphic highlights the highs (and the lows) of the Bataleon graphic story over the past two decades. However, what's great about this board is that it just isn't about the graphic. Because underneath that graphic is one of the best all-terrain boards you can strap into. Completely redesigned for 23/24, the Goliath 20th anniversary is a board that's equally happy charging around the resort as it is playing in the pow or even lapping the park. Truth be told, it's one of the most versatile and best-performing snowboards on the market, making it the perfect choice for seasonaires or anyone that wants one board to do it all.
Rider Style: All Terrain
Intermediate to advanced riders looking for a versatile, high-performance board that can 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 a true twin's feel and control 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 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, the unique Freestyle 3BT shape with sidekicks technology sets the Goliath apart. This advanced 3D base profile, combined with an overall traditional camber, delivers 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 innovative base shape makes turn initiation smoother, increases float in powder and improves the board's handling 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, it's the addition of the state-of-the-art DRST. This innovative technology inserts carbon tubes into pre-milled channels that run parallel to the Goliath's sidecut on either side of the board. These energise the sidecut along its entire length, giving the Goliath its dynamic and responsive rides. Bataleon then fits structural layers formed from torsionally responsive tri-ax glass. This torsionally responsive glass fibre is further reinforced with carbon stringers running from the front inserts to the rear inserts on either side of the board. These stringers ensure that when you need the board to deliver, you can be sure it can respond.
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.
