The Bataleon Boss 2014 reviewed!

Yes we are in a heatwave here in the UK but my local snowboard shop here in St Albans has started blog which includes a review of the Bataleon Boss snowboard.

Sadly is wasn't me who tested but the owner of the shop Jamie.

So what's the Bataleon Boss all about?
According to the review it's a pumped up pimped up version of the  Bataleon Evil Twin which was on of the biggest snowboards around in 2012.

Who is it for?  
Basically Jamie says in his snowboard review that if you've had and love your Bataleon board and want a upgrade for more advance riding then this is the 2014 snowboard for you.

K2 ever binding 2010/2011

More reviews of kit :)

Yep this blog is a bit reviewy but hey I hope it helps as I'm just some rider..

Following on from the K2 slayblade review what are the bindings I'm riding.

Well.. I ride the K2 ever 2010/2011 in size XL bought this Feb.

Looks pretty normal but u need to take a closer look...

A so called "AUTO strap technology" yes that is one place to tighten only at the top..

Also how do u change the highbacks?well that would be the "ultra light weights airlock-lite hightbacks" (I love k2's descriptions) hehee ..

So pro's :

Fast to strap in


no really.. only I ridden softer bindings but then that's not my style

Review Knee pads for snowboarding

I'd mentioned in this post about snowboarding kit that was going to try out knee pads as when I'm teaching friends or boarding with people who are a lot slower than me I sit on my arse which tends to get wet and cold...

Might sound a bit odd but if you have ever taught a snowboarding virgin you don't do much stand up on the board ;)

Anyway back to the point..

I bought the Forcefield body armour knee pads check them out here

I have to say its well worth buying if your learning OR doing tricks of any type..

I didn't use them all week as didn't need them when going on massive long rides as I don't fall much or stop much.

I did this year spend a day riding switch an wouldn't have made it pass 1hr without these pads on as would of had no knee left..

100% recommend them unless cruising around at speed and don't fall much...

k2 slayblade snowboard review

I'm no pro but have been boarding for a while now and love it..

I've had a burton snowboard (which someone nicked which is another story) and a nitro magnum but last year bought a K2 snowboard for the first time..

I spent a week riding a Ride DH and found it far to easy to ride, basically you didn't have to ride it which some days that was great but I love telling me board what to do (power crazy I know) so when looking for a new board I was recommended the K2 Slayblade.

I'm now able to give a small review on the slayblade as I've spent about 10days on it now..

So what's good, bad and fun about the k2 slayblade..

I have the 2010 version but assume the 2011 is pretty similar..

I have a 156cm and I'm 6'1 about 12stone and the smallest board I've ever bought..

My pros:

  • Fast (very)
  • Great on the flats
  • Great on piste
  • Super light
  • Good on blacks and ice
  • Good on mid powder and mid to firm off piste
  • Super stable at high speed
  • Technical ride

My cons

  • Unstable at low speed
  • Not a deep power board
  • Due to straight Edges carving pop only work at mid to high speeds

I really love this board and well worth checking out..

In conclusion its not an easy ride but a really fun ride and if you like to ride hard it well worth a go..
