True to the name, if you consider yourself a bonafide powder hound -- you're going to love the Bataleon Love Powder Snowboard. Made with a slightly wider length and kicker in the nose, the LP takes all you want from a powder board and shoves it into a smaller, more convenient package that can kick it in the trees and lay down a mean arc on piste. With a slightly softer flex and a POW 3BT™ profile, this board was bred for the deep stuff, but can handle daily driver duties without skipping a beat.
Mellow Camber/ POW 3BT™ with SideKick™ – 3rd generation Pow 3BT™ has the added benefit of SideKick. Designed with a narrow centerbase and maximum uplift with SideKick in the nose. Sidekick Offers uplift while turning in powder unlike other brand's boards. This shape, with its large nose is designed to stay afloat on the deepest of days with ease.
Flex Rating – 4 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)
Directional Tapered Outline/ SideKick™ – SideKick™ dramatically increases the sidebase uplift just outside the widest points of the nose and tail. This makes turn initiation smoother, increases float in powder and improves handling of the board in rough terrain.
Light Core – Bataleon's 50-50 Swiss paulownia and poplar woods blend for optimal strength to weight properties.
Biax Laminate – Traditional and time tested two-way weave of fiberglass is light, strong, and responsive keeping the board snappy without adding torsional stiffness.
ABS Solid Walls – Tried and trusted ABS sidewalls for the best flex to strength ratio.
Super Slick X – Not a basic extruded base. It has the highest molecular content available for an extruded base. That means it's super slick, durable and maintenance-free.
