POWDER HOUND THAT LOVES TO PLAY ON PISTE

Sharing the same award-winning shape and construction as the highly-acclaimed CT, the women-specific Love Powder delivers class-leading performance both in the powder and on the piste. Utilising a combination of fully directional tapered shape, Pow 3BT + SideKick technology and easy going relaxed construction, the Love Powder delivers effortless float in the deepest snow combined with a level of performance on the piste that'll simply blow your mind. 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 faces, tree runs and groomers.

Shape Overview
Built around a fully directional tapered shape it pretty clear on first glance what the Love Powder is all about. The first thing that you'll notice is the state of the art powder nose. This features a longer wider profile that works in perfect harmony with the short narrow 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. This lets you drive the board both into and out of turns. Match this with the long effective edge, and you've got one of the most solid and stable boards in the class. However, don't forget, because of the Love Powders unique shape, you ride this shorter than you would normally ride.

Profile
Now, what makes the Love Powder so special, is the innovative Pow 3BT base with SideKick technology. This powder specific version of Bataleon's unique triple base profile features a narrow centre base with larger side base uplifts in the nose giving unrivalled lift and float at the front. That extra uplift also enhances edge to edge transition while helping to drive the contact points into the snow. The shorter and lower uplift at the tail then creates a more solid and reassuring feel in the back of the board, which when combined with the traditional camber, really allows you to drive through 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 improving handling of the board in rough terrain.

Construction
Internally the Love Powder 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 edges for increased drive. Now the secret to the Love Powder's amazing performance is the choice of softer flexing bi-ax glass for the 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 Love Powder 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.
