Introducing the 2018 Miken RIOT Maxload USSSA Limited Edition – the must-have two-piece Miken.
The third bat in series of ultra-performance bats from Swing Nation and originally introduced in late 2017, the RIOT builds on Miken’s highly respected FREAK platform and takes batting performance engineering to its limits.
Driven by feedback from thousands of swings by players at all levels of competition in the USSSA conference, every aspect of the RIOT’s design plays a key role in giving the batter the ultimate in performance potential. Fiber angles, resin viscosity, taper slope, mold pressure, center of mass, balance point – all of the moving parts of traditional bat design were put to the test, and every possibility was reconsidered with a single goal in mind: help make you a better hitter.
Built on Miken’s FREAK platform, the 2018 Miken RIOT Maxload USSSA Limited Edition features Miken’s 100COMP and F2P composite technologies to maximize your time at the plate.
Simply put, the RIOT is built with the highest quality, highest performance materials and state of the art machinery to offer you unsurpassed performance and peace of mind durability. Lower in-wrapper compression, little to no “break in” period and dependability is what you can expect.
The power and pop of the RIOT’s 12-inch composite barrel is perfectly complimented with Miken’s half ounce “MAXLOAD” end load.
Whether you typically swing balanced or end loaded bats, you’ll find the precision weighting and moderate end load delivers smooth, powerful performance for both competitive tournament and rec. league players.
