The Bataleon Evil Twin has been around for a while and Tripple Base Technology has a lot of followers these days so I guess imitation is flattery. You get the pop of camber and the catch free feel of rocker in a freestyle board. This competes well with the hybrid rocker and hybrid camber boards except for in powder.
The Bataleon’s Evil Twin’s Twin TBT is not as pronounced as All Mountain TBT but instead It’s very much like Park TBT. The only difference is the edges are just a little more turned up on the sides and the flat part is just a little less. We are talking millimeters here. It has that same catch free feel of hybrid camber boards but has a little more pop on the tip/tail than most.
What this type of TBT does is make you feel like you are on a catch free camber board but it doesn’t make it feel easy in powder. You have some of the edge helping the board stay afloat but there is still more camber in the TBT section than rocker. It would be more fun to have the spring TBT camber for ollies and more advanced park play but use a twin with rocker for powder days.
In general Bataleon has good edge hold but it doesn’t have that all conditions grip than many other boards in this category do. It’s not terribly slippy but it’s also not great either.
All bataleon boards have a catch free ride but flat base and one foot well thanks to the mostly camber profile.
The medium flex makes this a pretty good park or mountain ride and it can play to a wide variety of freestyle riders.
