Bataleon New 3BT Tech
16 years ago the guys and girls at Bataleon started experimenting with snowboard designs and created the first ever Triple Base Technology (3BT) snowboard. Since then 3BT has gone through several upgrades with the latest, 3rd gen 3TB, being touted as the best yet.
In this new and improved 3BT we see the addition of ‘Sidekick Tips’ to the snowboard. SideKick Tips are an increase in the angle of the base curvature, on and just beyond the contact points of the board.
Here’s what Bataleon have to say about it:
“The all new SideKick Tips enhance 3BT’s advantages like nothing you experienced before. Side Kick dramatically increases the sidebase uplift on the widest points of the nose and tail. “
“This makes turn initiation even smoother, increases float in powder and handling of the board in rough terrain. It has to be ridden to be believed!”

Advantages of 3BT
In addition to the new Sidekick Tips Bataleon have retained all of the 3BT features we know and love from years gone by.
