THE FREESTYLE BOARD THAT'S MORE ALL TERRAIN THAN MOST ALL TERRAIN BOARDS
Bataleon's iconic Evil Twin has firmly established itself as the go-to board for freestyle riders who are looking for something that will destroy the park but which won't restrict their riding when they get out into the mountains. With its almost unnatural ability to handle every type of terrain for what is essentially a freestyle board, the Evil Twin embarrasses many an all-terrain specific snowboard. This stunning and versatile performance makes it no surprise that the Evil Twin is consistently one of the best-selling freestyle boards on the market. For this season Bataleon has once again refined and improved the spec, ensuring that yet again it still sits atop of the tree for discerning freestyle riders.
Intermediate to expert riders who are looking for the control and balance you only get with a true twin tip, but who also want that ride everything versatility of an all-terrain board.
The Evil Twin utilises a state of the art blunt tip and tail true twin chassis. This unique balanced shape delivers all the feel and control that you could ever need, ensuring that no matter how technical your park riding gets, you'll always feel in charge. However, thanks to the innovative nose and tail profile and 3BT base shape, the Evil Twin delivers quite remarkable performance away from the park.
Key to the Evil Twins perfect balance of park performance and all-terrain versatility is the unique Twin 3BT with SideKicks base profile. This advanced 3D base profile combined with an overall traditional camber delivers truly stunning performance in all types of terrain. The Twin 3BT profile divides the base at the front and back of the board into three sections. The wide flat centre base aids stability in take offs and landings while the two slightly narrower side-base sections with their mellow angled uplift deliver that unique combination of the hook-free ride with increased edge hold and control.
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.
Internally the Evil Twin utilises a combination of tried and tested construction with state of the art materials and design to deliver a truly stunning board. Heading this up is the responsive Core core. This poppy wood core combines poplar with beech stringers running through the centre to deliver the optimum balance of strength and performance.New for this season is the addition of Bataleon's new C.S.T reinforcing. This places a hollow carbon rod into a milled out channel on the base of the core, stepping up pop as well as powering up the camber for more snap and drive. Now to give the Evil Twin its trade-mark responsive and dynamic ride the structural layers are formed from torsionally stiff tri-ax glass. These are then further reinforced with carbon cross bracing under the inserts to deliver a powerful and stable ride, perfect for just charging around the mountain.
As the Evil Twin is all about class-leading performance, Bataleon fit it with their high-end Hyper Glide S sintered base. This high-performance base material delivers stunning performance as well as being strong and durable.
