Ride lightning.

      The Thunder smashed a new hole in the big mountain category when it debuted last year. It’s a straight-up freeride speed freak that’s built for aggressive resort shredding and turbo charged powder descents. Powerful riders will dig the smooth response we’ve dialed in through generous use of carbon and a beveled topsheet towards the waist. A combination of Triple Base and SideKick in the nose helps it float easily in the deep stuff. Bring the noise!




        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.



        Maximum volume for surfy vibes in the pow, or a smaller surface area for nimble freestyle performance. This number is calculated with length, width, 3D shape and surface distribution.



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

        Carbon Layup





        Our three-way weave of fiberglass is light, strong and responsive. We use this to beef up the flex pattern.


        Our 50-50 paulownia and poplar woods blend for optimal strength to weight properties.

        Special Sauce

        Dual Super Tube. Hollow carbon core upgrades that are inserted into the core. The hollow carbon tubes greatly increase the woodcore’s pop and reduce weight.

        Carbon Lay-ups

        The type and placement of fiberglass greatly influences a board’s flex and riding characteristics. Boards are built with a layer of fiberglass above and below the woodcore.

        Base Tech

        Our standard sintered base that’s tough and fast, and faster when waxed.

        Base Tech

        Producing two or more base color options minimizes p-tex waste. That is why you will find flip flop base options on most of our die-cut bases. This means orders can be filled with either color option which makes environmental sense.

        Missing snippet: "feature-backseat-inserts"


        Triple Base Technology™ is awesome. The lifted sidebase areas at the widest points of the board make a lot of sense. The boards turn smoother and faster and it helps when you are not completely clean on your landings.

        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.

        SuperTubes™ are hollow carbon core upgrades that are inserted into the core in 3 different configurations. The hollow carbon tubes greatly increase the woodcore’s pop and reduce weight.

        My First Bataleon

        Just bought my first Bataleon but I got it at the end of the season after watching five of my friends take their riding to the next level. I can't wait to use it and experience 3BT and Sidekick firsthand.


        Love this board, super fast and responsive with just the right amount of flex and decent pop. This board is lots of fun.

        Greatest upgrade ever!

        I broke my Goliath and wanted another great all mountain board and kind of feel in love with the feel of the 3BT. Enter: the THUNDER! The flexibility and versatility on all of the terrain is absolutely incredible. Havent ridden it in true powder just yet, but it has the setback binding mounts for that reason. I feel like I can go anywhere on this board. Steep chutes and open fields and through the trees. It's amazing.

        Just Such a Smooth Ride

        Took it to do some side country runs and this thing just handled anything thrown at it, but I was even impressed on how it railed turns on groomers! If you like all mountain freeride, you can’t go wrong here.

        Thunder away!

        Had a first long weekend and it's a change from my Evil Twin, really great performance whether the slope is hard and icy or when you leave for more deeper snow.
        After a first acquaintance i also still had that playful feeling on the board which makes it an allrounder.
        Great stuff!
        I am 1m80, 75kg and have the 168.
