Pow

What’s this board’s natural home? Full send in the park? Elbows down on the trails? Or chucking roosters somewhere off grid?

Flex

7.0

110

SoftStiff

Softer snowboards are easier to press and won’t kick your ass if you make a mistake. Stiffer decks are more stable at speed and super responsive edge-to-edge. Choose your poison.

Glassing

Carbon Tri-Ax

New for 2021/22 and exclusive to the Thunder Bolt, we’ve woven carbon directly into the fiberglass for the ultimate in high speed dampening and tip-to-tail response.

Layup & Laminate

Carbon Stringers

Our tried and tested carbon layups. We deploy them in different areas to fine-tune the feel of each model.

Woodcore

Super Ultra Light Core

Our lightest core features an 80/20 blend of Paulownia and poplar for the ultimate in featherweight response.

Tech

D.R.S.T. SuperTubes

Dual Radial Super Tubes, similar to DST but with four extra Super Tubes (six in total) running parallel to the board radius, delivering extra power to the edges.

Glassing

Tri-Ax Lamination

Our three-way fiberglass weave is light, strong and crazy responsive. We use this to beef up the flex pattern on our more aggressive boards.

Base

Nano Speed S

The fastest base money can buy, produced using race-grade ISOSPORT 7000 P-tex.

Inserts

+2 Backseat Inserts

Backseat inserts are an set of extra inserts 4cm behind the bottom inserts. This allows you to set your bindings all the way back, so you can keep floating on those deep pow days. By shifting your weight more back on the board the nose stays up and the pressure on you back leg is reduced.

Topsheet

Step Down Rails Top 3D

This topsheet 3D effect features a slight taper of the deck along the top of the sidewall. This reduces the top-profile, saving weight and adding more precision to your carves.

Sidewalls

Solid Walls

We use tried and trusted ABS sidewalls for most of the collection. For the best flex to strength ratio.

Layup & Laminate

Pre-Cured Carbon Stringers

Precured carbon offers even livelier rebound than our regular stringers. We use it to stiffen the tail and improve drive through turns on performance boards like the Surfer.

At the heart of every Bataleon is a combination of 3BT™ and positive camber. It’s an innovative solution to the profile puzzle that minimizes the potential for edge-catch without sacrificing ollie power or carving performance. From this starting point, we fine-tune each element according to the boards desired riding style.

SideKick™ builds on the concept of Triple Base by increasing the sidebase uplift just outside the widest points of the nose and tail. The tips become more like a hull, boosting float in deep snow and slicing through crud. It also helps the board to roll quickly and evenly from edge to edge.

AirRide™ is an additive we include within the woodcore of select models, which dampens vibrations and makes riding smoother at high speeds. It’s like having a suspension system in your snowboard.

Supertubes™ are hollow carbon cylinders that are inserted directly into the core. They reinforce the camber, reduce weight and greatly increase pop. By varying their location we can fine-tune the board’s performance further.

It slays so hard I might have to buy two

Seriously, it plows through chunks of snow and rides fast in wet slush. Normally a board like this would be too stiff / camber too high for an intermediate rider like myself to enjoy. HOWEVER!!! thanks to the shape of the base it's the most forgiving board I've ever owned. It inspires so much confidence in my riding and makes every run enjoyable at worst and absolute bliss at best.

Seriously though it'd be a crime to discontinue the thunderbolt. I might just buy a second to keep in storage for when the first board takes too much of a beating. Regardless if I do or don't, the Thunderbolt has made me a believer in 3BT and I will ONLY purchase 3BT boards from here on out.

EVERYTHING!

AMAZING! Whenever I want to go out and explore the mountain alone or new terrain, I ALWAYS take this beast with me! Never catch an edge with the 3BT. FAST! This board goes through and across anything in its path. Carving edge to edge is the best feeling on this board. I'm sad they haven't made one for the 23/24 season. Mine's getting abused! I travel with 2 boards and this one always comes with me!

Switch to this for any type of riding and resort

I've been snowboarding for over 20 years and this is my 7th board and by far my favorite! Switched from all-mountain true twin to this and I thought I was fast before now I'm wicked fast and able to plow through terrain I would not hit at full speed. Super stable and edge hold is 10/10 you will not be disappointed with the awesome performance
