This is the snowboard for the rider looking for a playful and maneuverable all-mountain/freestyle snowboard that doesn’t suck in powder. A board that you can press and butter, but still have fun carving and dipping through trees with. I would also recommend this snowboard to a beginner rider looking for something that is versatile, easy to learn with, and capable of progressing on for a few seasons.
The first thing I noticed when I picked up the Bataleon Magic carpet is how light it is! This snowboard has a very lightweight construction (mainly coming from the core materials used), which is a nice benefit. The side cut is also really fun for carving with speed and also feels maneuverable at slow speeds. However the biggest highlight on this snowboard is the 3BT three-dimensional base shape that impacts all aspects of the performance of this snowboard, in a good way.
