THE ALL TERRAIN CHARGER FOR WOMEN THAT DON’T HOLD BACK Aimed at experienced riders who are looking for a high-performance mountain charger, the all new Storm pretty much rewrites the rulebook for Women’s freeride boards. Built around a state of the art directional shape the Storm features Bataleon’s 3rd Generation 3BT with SideKick technology. This creates a truly stunning snowboard that delivers a level of performance that will blow the mind of even the most discerning rider. Utilising some of the most advanced construction and design available Bataleon have created a board that performs at the highest level. But for those days when you just want to cruise around, a board that’s still going ride the mountain with little to no stress. Rider Style Experienced riders who are looking for a high performance freeride board that can tackle even the most extreme terrain. Shape OverviewThe Storm is built around an all new tapered directional shape. This delivers a solid and stable ride with enhanced float in the powder, easy turn initiation and exit as well as a predictable overall feel. Performance in the powder is even further enhanced with the longer freeride specific nose and tail profiles which add lift at the front of the board and sink at the tail. However, for what is a fully directional freeride board, the Storm still feels pretty balanced to ride thanks to the minimal (1cm) amount of setback. This gives it that more progressive feel for when you just want to cruise around without compromising any of the Storms hard charging ride. ProfileAs with the rest of the Bataleon range it’s the unique Freeride 3BT shape with SideKicks technology that really sets the Storm apart from its competitors. This directional shape has a narrow centre base with more side base uplift area and angle in the nose than in the tail. That narrow centre base generates swift edge-to-edge transfer and works in perfect harmony with the traditional camber to ensure that not only do you you have a board that turns easier and with more stability. In addition, that more pronounced side base gives unrivalled levels of lift and float at the nose. So not only do you have a board that turns like it’s on rails, but you also have a board that will ride everything you can throw at it. Side KicksSideKick increases the side base uplift just outside the widest part of the nose and tail, making turn initiation smoother, increasing float in powder and improves handling of the board in rough terrain. ConstructionInternally the Storm takes advantage of Bataleon’s high end construction. Heading this up is the new Light Core, combining an even mix of poplar and paulownia it delivers the perfect balance of light weight, durability and playful performance. To this, Bataleon then add their state of the art D.S.T (Dual Super Tube) Technology. This places two hollow carbon rods 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 Storm its powerful and responsive ride, the structural layers are formed from torsionally responsive tri-ax glass. This creates a stable and solid ride that inspires total confidence at even the highest speeds.Now to step up response and power even further, Bataleon add carbon stringers running from the inserts to the contact points in the nose and from the inserts to the middle of the tail. This combination gives lightning fast turn initiation with a powerful and dynamic drive out the back of the board. BaseTo ensure that the Storm delivers great performance in any conditions Bataleon utilise their Hyper Glide S base. This durable sintered base material is super-fast and super tough.Additional information Length Waist Width Sidecut Taper Effective Edge Tip Width Tail Width Min Stance Max Stance Setback Weight Range 148 24cm 7.9m 0cm 113.1cm 27.8cm 27.8cm 48cm 56cm 1cm 125-165lbs / 57-75kg 152 24.2cm 8.0m 0cm 116.7cm 28.2cm 28.2cm 50cm 58cm 1cm 130-175lbs / 60-80kg
