BATALEON'S SHORT FAT BOARD FOR ENDLESS FUN ON AND OFF-PISTE

The Party Wave is a new addition for this season and marks Bataleon's first foray into the short /wide board market. Aimed at riders who are looking for a new snowboarding experience, this truly stunning board will have you grinning from ear to ear every second you spend on it. Whether you're laying out carves on the piste, dropping waist deep tree runs or even just cruising around the mountain, this unique and special board will totally alter your perception of what's possible on a snowboard. As with all boards in this category, it's easy to dismiss them as a gimmick, but talk to anyone lucky enough to have one in their quiver, and you'll pretty quickly realise that 'YES, YOU ARE MISSING OUT'.

Rider Style
Intermediate to pro level riders who are looking for a great fun snowboard that will make you rethink the whole riding experience.

Shape Overview
The Party Wave utilises a state of the art wide platform tapered directional outline which swaps length for volume to deliver truly mind-blowing levels of lift and float. This powder inspired shape takes advantage of an advanced nose and tail profile which not only gives great lift in powder but it also helps drive the board both into and out of the turn delivering a level of performance on the piste that is nothing short of mind-blowing. Now although that nose creates a lot of lift, it's pretty compact. This allows the designers to create a long effective edge for such a short board, ensuring that when you're blasting those groomers, it's as solid as a rock.

Profile
Key to the Party Wave's stunning performance is the innovative Pow 3BT base + SideKick technology combined with the traditional camber profile. Pow 3BT is the most directional version of the triple base 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. Combine this with the extra pop and power from the traditional camber, and it allows you to drive the back of the board hard.

Side Kicks
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 handling of the board in rough terrain.

Construction
The Party Wave's easy going construction is headed up by the durable and responsive Core core. Combining poplar with beech stringers running tip to tail through centre of the board, it delivers the perfect balance of control and response without being overly aggressive. Now to give the Party Wave its playful overall feel, the structural layers are formed from torsionally softer bi-ax glass. It's this softer flex that makes this type of board so much fun to ride and the reason everyone should have one in their quiver.

Base
To deliver great performance across all snow conditions, the Party Wave 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.
