Trevor Johnston owns this product
The Bataleon Disaster is a really fun and playful snowboard that is at home jibbing in the park, or buttering and doing flatground tricks outside of it. Bataleon has this rated as a 2/10, and I feel like that is spot on -- it's one of the softer boards that I've ever tried out. While presses take almost no effort,... Read more
Ideal for
  • Jibbing
  • Presses and Butters
  • Sintered base at a nice price point

Originally posted at bataleon.com on Jun 10, 2024
I purchased the regular disaster 2023 and discovered how much fun Bataleon brand is so I had to get the disaster + just to have a little more stiffness at high speeds .. I’m 5’6”135lb ride 148 .. Been snowboarding for 20+ years wish would tried these boards a long time ago .. It’s amazing how effortlessly these boards float n turn and you don’t have to worry about catching edges.. I’m Hooked

2023 (not so) Disaster review

Originally posted at bataleon.com on May 14, 2024
After renting snowboard gear for nearly 10 years, I finally committed to finally buying my own setup last year, my only regret is that I didn't shell out the money sooner. The silver lining is that I ended up buying a 2023 Disaster that checked all my boxes - aesthetics, conducive to my riding style and quality. Customer service is super helpful too, had one of my foam pads stolen at Big Bear during lunch and got that replaced with a rep.

Spencer went above and beyond to help make me comfortable with my first snowboard purchase. I worried about getting something wide enough for my big feet and versatile enough to help me progress as a newer rider. He curated the perfect list for me and even made a 17 minute video addressing me personally and answering all my questions. He is personable, knowledgeable and quick to respond. Honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I appreciate you Spencer.
