One of the longest running models in the line, the Goliath delivers a perfect mix of power, precision and agility into a freestyle all-mountain package that will keep you happy regardless of the conditions.
- Directional Twin
- Medium Camber
- Freestyle 3BT: The sidebase and centercase areas are equally proportionate in size with a medium uplift angle on Freestyle 3BT™. With added length in the nose, these boards are remarkably versatile for freestyle and freeride situations.
- Sidekick: SideKick™ Tips enhance 3BT™’s advantages like nothing you experienced before. SideKick™ dramatically increases the sidebase uplift at the widest points of the nose and tail. This makes turn initiation even smoother, increases float in powder and handling of the board in rough terrain. It has to be ridden to be believed!
The side profile of camber looks like a rainbow. Tried and true, camber has been the dominant board bend in the snowboard industry for almost 40 years. Adopted from the bend of alpine skis, camber snowboards deliver precise turning and edge control, with spring-loaded pop due to the bend in the board, providing better jumping characteristics. Advanced riders tend to prefer this bend, especially for hard carving and high-speed riding. Even when it comes to softer park snowboards, camber boards deliver exceptional pop and control.
However, they are not as forgiving of mistakes and can be more difficult to learn or progress on than a rocker or hybrid bend.
Directional shapes generally feature a longer, softer nose and a shorter, stiffer tail. These shapes thrive in an all-mountain environment, as they possess the ability to ride more smoothly than their twin-tip counterparts and behave more reliably in variable snow conditions, anywhere from choppy snow to deeper powder. More twin-looking directional shapes where the difference between nose and tail appear minimal will perform best as crossover freestyle snowboards for those looking to still access the park, while more exaggerated differences will excel for additional float in deep powder.

3BT - Triple Base Technology
After lots of research, analyzing, tinkering, and testing, Bataleon came up with their patented 3BT™ shaping technique. All our boards feature tip to tail positive camber in combination with lifted contact points at the widest part of the board. Over the years we perfected 3BT™ to best perform for every kind of riding by fine tuning the synergies between the flat base, side bases, radii and camber.
Flat Base Riding Initiation: The widest section of the board is lifted off the snow while riding flat based allowing you to ride straight without catching edges or needing to keep your edges engaged.
Turn Initiation: With a small amount of pressure and angle, the sidebases start to engage near the bindings, but the pressure remains constant along the contact edge.
On Edge: While on edge, the 3D shaped sidecut forms a complete arc with the snow, offering unparalleled and powerful edge hold.
