Atom 40" Bamboo Drop-Through Longboard - Tiki
When Atom's original 41" Drop-Through longboard went boom this past year we asked our riders what we could do to take this board to the next level. When they suggested an upgraded bamboo / maple hybrid deck with a little more concave and a tad more width under foot (a full 10 inches to be exaxt), genuine Navigator high performance 40 degree reverse king pin trucks, and sick new graphics, we knew they were on to something so that's exactly what we gave them. Now you can join them by adding the Atom 40" Bamboo Drop-Through Longboard to your quiver.

This board is beautiful. The craftsmanship is simply out-of-this-world. I jumped on it and started riding immediately. The ride was as smooth as butter, and I felt as though I was flying, with almost no resistance. The wide deck is curved, flexible and has great strength - it should comfortably support someone of 210 pounds or so (I weigh 195). The deck tape is grippy and rather coarse. The wheels and bearings are a great combination - the board just rolls and rolls, seemingly without much effort. The trucks are attractive, responsive and solidly made.
Turning radius is a bit wide - the board requires a bit of lean in order to effect a reasonable 180 degree turn - but once you get the hang of it, you're solid. There is no wheelbite whatsoever. Kicking is wonderful, because the board is a drop through, making its height lower than a top mounted board.
I got caught in a torrential downpour on the boardwalk approximately three miles away from my car - the board might as well have been a rowboat - it got me back to the car quickly and efficiently. Later, after it was left to dry, I was happy to see that the deck did not warp.
Some of the truck componentry is painted black, and the paint chips down there from flying stones, resulting in small rust spots. The truck mounting screws will loosen on the board over time, despite their loctite nuts, resulting in annoying rattling and loose handling - be sure to keep a tool with you when boarding to tighten things up after heavy cruising.
I love this longboard! I have owned it for three months, and I ride it nearly every day. It's easy and pleasurable to ride and very confidence-inspiring. I take it with me everywhere, and it gets tons of compliments. I highly recommend it!
Its great for the price and I wouldn't have batted an eye if it was more expensive. I really dont have a complaint. The biggest thing I saw in the reviews were complaints about the bearings. You NEED to loosen the wheels when you buy this board. They nuts on the trucks are cranked so tight you can barely roll. Loosen them up and break them in and this thing cruises amazing.
You don't need new bearings just loosen it up a bit.
***Update*** I read in another review that because this board is bamboo, or at the very least looks like it might be layered with bamboo and maple, the board would be a little more fragile. My board got away from me and hit a curb. I wasn't going very fast as I was stopping, but that didn't stop it from splitting the bottom ply at the front. Slightly disappointed by the quality of the deck, but will maintain my 5 star review.
