Sometimes you just want to cruise the mountain, slash fresh snow in the trees, and send cliff drops into powder. Just the board for ripping natural terrain, the Bataleon Omni Snowboard is the freeride favorite in Bataleon's line. Its medium flex, Freeride 3BT profile, and backseat inserts all equate to straight-line stability, smooth, drawn-out carves, and effortless float in powder. Loaded with a Reactor core, the Omni features beech reinforcement along the rails for solid edge hold and high-speed stability. Triax fiberglass provides torsional stiffness to prevent washing out, while Kevlar Fleece boosts strength and snap when you're charging hard.
Triple Base Technology (3BT) provides the baseline for the Omni's freeride mentality, giving you the powerful edge hold and response of camber when you're riding steeps and natural terrain. Unlike a regular camber board, 3BT upturns the board's sides along the tip and tail to drastically improve float in powder while reducing its tendency to catch along the contact points. This particular version of Freeride 3BT features a more extreme uplifted nose for unmatched float, as well as a skinnier center base for smooth carves at high speeds.

- Q & A
powder stick that does all mtn
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The "Omni" evolved from Bataleon's acclaimed (and discontinued) "Undisputed" powder specific board. The major change is the Omni is significantly softer...this is good for most all mtn riders, but not so good for powder hounds that can't shell out for Bataleon's expensive Whitegold boards.
Another change is the inserts. They're in the same spot as the Undisputed, but Bataleon removed two of the inserts just so they can use the term "Backseat" inserts...it's a gimmick that actually removes one of the stance options the Undisputed had.
Finally, the base grind isn't as coarse as the Undisputed was. The Omni will still be fine for most in drier snow, but may be a little slower in wet snow.
If a lightly used Undsiputed isn't an option, the Omni is still a very good all mtn freeride that'll also float through some super deep powder, even on flatter mtns.
