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!
-The bamboo gives the board a lot of flex. I can get a really comfortable ride even though my campus is riddled with cracks and debris on all of the sidewalks.
-It comes with larger than normal wheels (70x51mm), which also adds to the comfort of the ride.
-The grip tape on the top of the board is some of the roughest I've ever seen. I actually found myself roughing up my hands just carrying it until it had worn down a bit after a few weeks of riding, but you definitely will NOT slip while riding.
-I have big feet.. ;) .. and the wide deck is nice to have.
-The drop-through deck means I've never had a problem with wheel bite (when turning hard and the board angles down, making contact with the wheels).
-The bamboo also means the board is a good bit more fragile than a normal maple deck. I busted up the front pretty bad on a curb in just the first week I was riding it, since then I've been a lot more careful with it and haven't had any problems other than light wear (See picture).
-The bushings (rubber cylinders in between the truck and the kingpin to allow the trucks to rotate) that come with this are stiff as plastic. Unless you weigh 300 pounds you will barely be able to steer the board. (I weigh 160) The first day I had the board, I had to unscrew the kingpin until it no longer made contact with the bushings in order to steer at all. I picked up some soft bushings the 2nd day after having the board, which was completely necessary to being able to ride well. I highly recommend buying different bushings that suit your weight if you buy this board.
