FUN TIMES EVERY TIME
The Bataleon Fun.Kink is the epitome of a modern go-anywhere shape. It’s super accessible, with a mellow flex and relaxed camber that encourages riders of every level to try stuff they wouldn’t have got away with on their old board. Together with the carbon-infused core for powerful ollies, it’s a seamless blend of technology and fun that represents everything Bataleon stands for.
Rider Level: Beginner - Intermediate
Board Type: All Mountain Freestyle
Camber Type: Medium Camber
All 3BT boards have a camber profile, but they vary by model in the degree of camber and uplift across the width of the board. The Cruiser has a Medium Camber profile for predictable response, strong snap, and powerful pop.
Flex: 4/10 (1 = soft, 10 = stiff)
A soft-mid flex for big presses, easy turns, and playful riding all over the mountain.
Shape: Directional Twin 3BT
Bataleon's directional twin boards have a twin sidecut and contact area and a directional outline. These boards are shaped with evenly proportioned centre and side bases with medium uplift for the perfect balance for freestyle and freeriding.
Sidekick dramatically increases the amount of uplift just outside the widest points of the nose and tail. This makes turn initiation smoother, enhances float, and improves handling in rough terrain.
Core: 'Core Core'
The Core Core features full poplar with hardwood beech strings to strengthen the board's backbone, reinforce the inserts and increase pop.
D.S.T. - The Dual Super Tube upgrade puts two hollow carbon rods in the bottom of the core, enhancing pop and putting more snap into the camber.
Biax Laminate - A time-tested two way weave that keeps the board light, strong, and snappy, without increasing torsional stiffness.
Shock Walls - Urethane-infused sidewall technology. Shock Walls smooth out your ride and are more resistant to scratches.
Base: Hyper Glide S
The Hyper Glide S base is the standard sintered base from Bataleon. Tough and fast, and even faster when you keep it waxed.
