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

Bataleon launched the Party Wave last season, and it instantly became a cult classic. Aimed at riders who are looking for that unique freeride performance that you only get with the new generation of short, wide boards, it very quickly established itself a reputation as one of the best performing examples of this game-changing category. Its rapid rise to stardom was in no small part due to the exploits of UK legend Tyler Chorlton and his series of elbow down carving videos. These little snippets of the Party Wave showed a level of performance on the piste that was nothing short of mind-blowing. Match that with the stunning short wide board float in the pow combined with the advanced Freeride 3BTwith Side Kicks technology, and what you get is a genuinely remarkable snowboard that might just make you rethink your whole approach to freeride snowboarding.

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 excellent lift in powder but also helps drive the board both into and out of the turn. This delivers 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 what is a short board. This ensures that when you’re blasting those groomers, it’s going to be as solid as a rock.

Profile

What was most impressive about the Party Wave was its stunning performance over the whole mountain, with this in mind Bataleon tweaked their innovative 3BT profile for 19/20, eschewing the original boards Pow 3BT for a more responsive Party Wave exclusive Freeride 3BT. This performance-oriented directional version of triple base 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 allowing you to drive the board through the turn giving a stable and responsive carve. Combine this with the mellow camber and you get a board that is not only dynamic but also smooth and progressive.

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 the handling of the board in rough terrain.

Construction

The Party Wave’s classic construction is headed up by the durable and responsive Core core. Combining poplar with beech stringers running tip to tail through the 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 excellent 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 more robust and faster while remaining virtually maintenance free.
