PHOTO: Chris Wellhausen Board Of The Month: Bataleon Evil Twin Artist Edition The world works in opposites. Snowboarding is no different; an air here is a bail there. It’s all about finding your balance, and on Bataleon’s revamped Evil Twin, that equilibrium is found right underfoot. Its wide, cambered, flat-based area between the bindings and three-way weave of fiberglass provide a stable launch pad. Hardwood stringers run tip to tail over the inserts for added pop and stability, and new for this season is a blunted tip and tail that helps lock into presses. Slams are inevitable though. That’s why Bataleon molds the board with Twin Triple Base Technology—a concave, spoon-shaped tip and tail for forgiveness and plowing through pow. With less catch and consequence at the contact points, you can keep your ollies, nollies, turns, stomps, and spins poised and on point.
