The Future
is 3D

Having perfected Triple Base Technology™ over 18 years, we have more experience of 3D snowboard shaping than anyone else. As different manufacturers begin to realise the benefit of three dimensional profiles, Bataleon continues to refine its wide range of patented 3D designs and blaze a trail for others to follow.

The future is Triple Base.

The Idea

Whether man-made or natural, the most successful designs work in harmony with the forces they are subjected to. At Bataleon, we analyzed what happens when a snowboard is put under pressure – when you jam it into a powder bank or drive it through a transition.

The answer is that it adapts its shape to the terrain. Triple Base Technology™ embraces this reality, creating a more efficient shape from the get-go. Just as the curved hull of a boat ploughs through the waves, or the wings of a plane are designed to slice through the air, 3BT™ is perfectly molded for the mountain environment.

The Shape

All our boards feature positive camber from tip to tail, combined with lifted contact points at the widest areas. This reduces the chance of edge catches while keeping the board feeling super lively. Through years of research, tinkering, and testing we have fine-tuned the way 3BT™ works alongside both the camber and the sidecut radii.

1

Flat Base Riding

The widest section of the board is lifted off the snow while riding flat based. This allows you to ride straight without hooking up or needing to keep your edges engaged.

2

Turn Initiation

When set on a slight angle, the sidebase starts to engage near the bindings. Unlike traditional flat boards, pressure remains constant along the contact edge.

3

On Edge

While on edge, the 3D shaped sidecut forms a complete arc with the snow, offering unparalleled grip and turning power.

Narrow Centerbase

Pow 3BT™ features a narrow centerbase and maximum uplift with SideKick™ in the nose. The emphasis is on float, with an oversized nose that also offers excellent stability in rough conditions. Nothing beats these boards in deep snow, though make no mistake they hold their own on hardpack too.

Mid Centerbase

Freeride 3BT™ has a narrow centerbase and substantial sidebase uplift. The focus here is on edge control and versatility. These shapes have proven to be functional and competent in all conditions, floating better than other brands’ powder boards yet holding an unbelievable edge while carving on hardpack.

Freestyle 3BT™ has the sidebase and centerbase areas equally proportioned, with a medium uplift angle. With added length in the nose, Freestyle 3BT™ boards let you get creative across the whole mountain.

Extra Wide Centerbase

Twin 3BT™ deploys a low uplift angle that begins outside the bindings, delivering precision control with less hang-ups. The wide centerbase offers a solid platform to press, load up ollies and put down landings. Jib 3BT™ is a slight variation of Twin 3BT™ optimized for park riding; it has the widest centerbase in the range to give you extra stability while jibbing and pressing.

Advantages+

Edges create friction, retain heat and don’t hold wax – all of which slow you down. 3BT™ boards accelerate faster and maintain speed when pointed straight because less of the edges are in contact with the snow, reducing drag. This helps you coast along cat tracks faster, clear jumps and pass skiers on powder days.

The hull-like shape of our nose and tail offers natural float – just like a boat or a progressive surfboard. In deep snow, the front of the board rises to the surface and plows through everything in its path, enabling epic powder days without the back leg burn. Works great in slush, too.

This helps you coast along cat tracks faster, clear jumps and pass skiers on powder days.

When the board is placed on it s edge, the uplifted sections help it form a more cohesive arc against the snow. This creates a platform for smooth, powerful turns. As you switch edges, the same uplift lets you roll fluidly across the base and makes wider boards feel as agile as regular widths.

Triple Base Technology™ gives every board in the range all-mountain credentials. For instance, our jib boards still float well in pow thanks to the 3D nos e and tail. Likewise, uplifted edges mean even freeride-focused models are easy to butter.

Our 3D tips boost the ollie power of positive camber. When the tail (or nose) is flexed, more of the energy is directed through the center of the base, amplifying pop.
