Snowboarding, like many other sports, is constantly changing and evolving. Technologies, materials, and design practices are constantly evolving, and these innovations have made snowboarding more enjoyable and accessible than ever before. One brand that has always been at the forefront of snowboard technology is Bataleon. And their latest innovation, the Directional Twin, has changed the way we think about snowboarding.
What is a Directional Twin?
Bataleon's Directional Twin combines the best of two popular board shapes: directional and twin. This means that the board has been designed to perform great on forward landings, but still offers the versatility of a twin board, allowing for easy turns and tricks.
Why is it so special?
Most boards are either directional, optimized for forward descent and handling deep snow, or twin boards, designed for park and tricks. With the Directional Twin, you can get the best of both worlds: you can speed down the slopes and still feel comfortable jumping in the park.
How has Bataleon managed this?
Bataleon's patented Triple Base Technology (3BT) is the key to the success of the Directional Twin. With 3BT, the edges of the board rise slightly from the middle of the board, which makes it more forgiving and reduces the edges from sticking to the snow. This enables the versatility of the board both on the slopes and in the park.
Who is Directional Twin for?
This board is ideal for those who want one board that can handle anything. Whether you're deep in powder snow, on the slopes or in the park, with the Directional Twin you're ready for anything.
