THE FREESTYLE BOARD WITH AN ALL MOUNTAIN HEART

Over the years the Distortia has earned itself a deserved reputation as being one of the very best women’s freestyle boards on the market. Having continuously evolved since its launch, it has always been at the forefront of snowboard design and technology, and this year's board is no exception. Utilising an advanced blunt twin platform and Bataleon’s state of the art park inspired Twin 3BT with Sidekicks profile, this remarkable board delivers unrivalled levels of feel and control. However, what separates the Distortia from its competitors is its uncanny ability to combine that freestyle balance with a level of all-terrain performance that is nothing short of remarkable. It’s that versatility combined with its freestyle underpinning that unsurprisingly makes the Distortia one of the most popular women's snowboards on the market.

Rider Style

Intermediate to expert riders who are looking for the control and balance you only get with a true twin tip but who also want the ride everything versatility of an all-terrain board.

Shape Overview

The Distortia utilises a state of the art blunt tip and tail 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 Distortia delivers quite remarkable performance away from the park.

Profile

Key to the Distortia’s perfect balance of park performance and all-terrain versatility is the unique Twin 3BT with SideKicks base. This advanced 3D base profile combined with an overall traditional camber delivers 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 takeoff’s and landings, while the two slightly narrower side-base sections with their mellow angled uplift deliver that unique combination of a hook-free ride with increased edge hold and control.

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

Internally the Distortia utilises a combination of tried and tested construction with state of the art materials and design to deliver a genuinely 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. To add additional pop to this Bataleon then add their innovative C.S.T reinforcing. This places a hollow carbon rod into milled out channels 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 Distortia its combination of playful feel and all-terrain versatility, the structural layers are formed from playful bi-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.

Base

To deliver great performance across all snow conditions, the Distortia 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.
