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.
The Bataleon Disaster is a great board for the rider who wants to spend some time progressing in the park. If you’re the type of rider that seeks and hits every little natural feature and side hit on the way down the mountain; you’re going to enjoy the Disaster. Being able to carve well is a bonus. I would recommend this snowboard to beginner riders and up.
The Lobster Sender snowboard is a board that is built for the whole mountain with regards to the flex and side cut, but also slays it in the park. It has carbon stringers added in the tip and tail of the board to add some rigidity and response, and also makes the snowboard more poppy. However, the coolest tech in this board is 3BT – Triple Base Technology. 3BT is found exclusively in Bataleon/Lobster snowboards and is a 3-dimensional base shape that lifts the base and edges up by about 3 degrees on both the nose and tail. This effectively creates a regular camber snowboard, that is even more catch free than rocker; really combining the best of both worlds.
The Lobster Jib Board is a flexible and playful ride that, as the name suggests, is a lot of fun on rails and jibs. Soft flex and regular camber makes it a great board for presses and technical rail tricks, providing nice flex zones and some decent pop.
This is the snowboard for the rider who wants it all when it comes to the terrain park. Whether it’s learning a new rail trick, exploring a new zone, morning pow runs or afternoon jump laps the Lobster Halldor Pro is versatile enough to thrive in pretty much any condition and provide a balance between being playful and aggressive that is hard to be matched.
