Bataleon Fun Kink
Aimed at park-focused freestyle riders who are looking for a more versatile ride, the Fun Kink has earned itself a reputation as being one of the most playful all-terrain boards on the market.
By combining the soft playful feel of a park board with the go anywhere ride anything versatility of an all mountain board, Bataleon have created a snowboard that really does blur the lines between the park and the mountain.
For 2017 the Fun Kink has undergone a complete redesign giving it more versatility and stepping up the performance another level. Heading up this redesign is the all new shape, this takes its dimensions from both the Goliath and Whatever and adds a little bit of extra length in the nose. This gives additional float in the powder that you just can’t get with a true twin.
However, by utilising the Twin 3BT profile, which features a wider centre flat base and mellow upturns in the side base sections, the Fun Kink still delivers that playful, jibby feel that cements its freestyle character. Now add the traditional dynamic camber profile which gives the board a more poppy and responsive ride and you can see why the Fun Kink is such a versatile board.
Internally the all new wood core is constructed from a combination of durable poplar but with additional bamboo strings running through the centre to give a more dynamic feel and add additional pop for bigger take-offs and higher ollies. Now as the Fun Kink is all about its playful fun ride Bataleon create the structural layers from a forgiving Bi-Ax glass.
Finally the high molecular weight extruded Super Slick X Base gives a fast glide with minimal maintenance. This season the Fun Kink comes complete with matching Switchback bindings.
