Over the past few seasons we've seen a definite trend towards riders adding one of the new generation of short powder boards to their quivers. However, for some reason, the snowboard industry hasn't exactly been forthcoming when offering this amazing technology to women. Well, step forward Bataleon and the all-new Love Powder.
This totally stunning board will make you rethink everything you know about snowboarding. It really is that special. However, what makes the Love Powder really stand out, is that it doesn't only ride pow. If you're one of those riders that's not that interested in freestyle and just like cruising around the mountain, the Love Powder's piste performance will blow your mind. This thing carves so well you could easily have this as your only board.
Now what gives the Love Powder it's amazing performance is its combination of fully directional powder shape and innovative Pow 3BT base profile. This fully directional shape features increased volume in the nose which when combined with the longer and wider high lift 3BT side base sections gives a level of float that really does defy belief.
However, it's not only float that it gives you; it also engages the edges harder and faster, and when combined with the short 3BT profile at the tail, directional flex and traditional camber, it delivers almost race board like performance on piste. But don't go thinking that the Love Powder is only about hard charging. Thanks to the combination of Reactive Core (which places beech stringers along the edges) and a torsionally softer Bi-Ax glass, the Love Powder combines all that performance with a playful nature making it just so much fun to ride.
Finally, the low maintenance easy repair high molecular extruded base gives a superfast glide in all conditions.
