Ride the lightning.


The ThunderStorm is built for high energy resort riding and turbo-charged powder descents.

This board is part of our genderless collection and is available in a large array of lengths to accommodate riders of all sizes.

Park 5/10
Resort 9/10
Pow 9/10

Flex
6/10
(1=soft, 10=Stiff)
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.

Shape

Directional
On our more freeride orientated boards the center base is at its most narrow and the uplift is at its highest this creates unparalleled float in pow super fast edge-to-edge transitioning.

Low Camber
Camber profiles are defined from low to high. Higher camber make for more dynamic boards that need to be ridden more aggressively to get maximum performance. Lower camber boards are smoother on lower speeds and in powder. All camber profiles run from nose to tail. higher is not always better...

3BT™ + Sidekick™
Combining the responsiveness of traditional tip-to-tail camber with the dynamic shaping properties of Triple Base Technology and the performance boosting Sidekick feature makes for a 3D snowboarding experience like no other.

Nose Sidebase Uplift
High
The gradual side base uplift in the nose determines how the board will behave on snow. most effected are the edge to edge performance and the uplift generated when riding powder.

Tail Sidebase Uplift
Medium
The gradual side base uplift in the tail determines how the board will behave on snow. Any amount of uplift brings all the benefits of Triple Base Technology making opur boards more versatile then others.

Construction

Layup & Laminate
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.

Woodcore
Light Core
50/50 Paulownia and poplar creates a balanced core that’s lively yet strong.

Base
Ultra Glide S
A premium, 7000-grade sintered base reserved for our high-end models. Packing more molecules into the P-tex means it’s super tough and hauls ass.

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

Special Sauce
D.S.T. Super Tubes
Dual Super Tubes, a Super Tube on either side of the board enhances pop and gives the camber more snap.

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

Technology

Triple Base Technology
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.

Supertubes™
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.

SideKick™
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.
