When Gulli Gudmundsson hits the streets of urban Iceland, he's on the Bataleon Disaster Gulli Edition Snowboard. Bataleon loaded the Disaster with a gaggle of park-friendly features like wide binding inserts for wider stances and a crazy-soft flex for ridiculous forgiveness. Triple Base Technology combines the loose, forgiving feel of a rocker board with the pop of camber for easier landings without washing out, and Bataleon's Hammer edges stand up to session after session of board-torturing rail action.The Disaster's Jib TBT rocker provides plenty of stability when you need it, like when you're locking into presses. The profile mimics regular camber but with hard angles where regular camber is a continuous curve. At the tip and tail, the edges are turned up. This profile gives the board a playful feel, but also powerful edge control when the edges are weighted. Bataleon's Tough Core is an all-wood composite that's virtually unbreakable but that is also super flexible to provide confidence-inspiring forgiveness in the park and on rails. The Disaster's true twin shape makes riding switch feel the same as riding forward, and Bataleon's Hammer Edges are much tougher than normal edges so the board isn't destroyed after just a couple of rail sessions. Bataleon finished the board off with an extruded base that makes repairs a snap.
