Hit the streets with a serious tool.
If you're planning on spending a lot of time in the streets this winter, you need a jib board that's up to the challenge. The Bataleon Disaster Snowboard was meant to be pressed, slid, buttered, and bonked from the terrain park to downtown. Triple Base Technology combines the loose, forgiving feel of a rocker board with the pop of camber for easier landings without washing out, and the Toughcore has super-soft flex that's perfect for jibbing, yet is very strong so that it won't snap halfway through the season.
The Disaster's Jib TBT rocker provides plenty of stability when you need it, like when you lock into presses. The profile mimics regular camber but with hard angles where regular camber is a continuous curve. At the tip and tail, the edges are turned up. This profile gives the board a playful feel, but also powerful edge control when the edges are weighted. Bataleon's Tough Core is an all-wood composite that's virtually unbreakable but that is also super flexible to provide confidence-inspiring forgiveness in the park and on rails. The Disaster's true twin shape makes riding switch feel the same as riding forward, and Bataleon's Hammer Edges are much tougher than normal edges, so the board isn't destroyed after just a couple of rail sessions. Bataleon finished the board off with an extruded base that makes repairs a snap.

not a total disaster
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
rode this board for a few days up on mt. hood this summer. First impressions were great. Cruising around was fun, a different shape than I had ridden before. Nose/tail grabs are super fun. It certainly is a softer rail oriented board. But is fun on the jumps and in the pipe. If you are rail rat looking for a board with a different shape then this si worth checking out.
