This new 2013 Atomic 4 is a luxury, multi-rider towable designed for long summer days on the boat. Loaded with features and constructed from only the highest quality materials, the new Atomic 4 will keep you where you want to be…on the water. Large Boston-style valves promote quick and easy inflation and deflation, while the soft foam handles, padded knuckle guards, and staggered, padded seating ensure that you’ll be riding in ultimate comfort. With its low center of gravity, the new Atomic 4 remains extremely stable in the whip and through the wake. An innovative design feature of the Atomic 4 is the rear boarding platform that makes re-boarding from the water a snap.

THE RIDE – The ride is extremely smooth and stable, even in fairly rough water. This is probably not the best choice for thrill seeking teenagers looking to go wake to wake, but it is perfect for younger kids and adults. The three reclined passenger seats are great for kids and adults alike. The arm rests give the kids a sense of security, and are quite comfortable for the adults. The rear 4th passenger seat is a bit uncomfortable for some riders and requires some strength (moderate degree of fitness) to hold on in rough water, but it is actually a fun ride for capable individuals.
4th SEAT – This 4th seat is great for re-boarding in the water, which makes it a great addition if just for this reason alone. For riding, the forth passenger must be in the kneeling position and it leans back in the water just a bit. This seat is not for everybody, but most kids over 10 should handle it no problem, and most moderately fit adults can ride the 4th seat without too much discomfort. Having a 4th rider does balance the ride somewhat, and tilts the weight distribution back which completely eliminates rope spray.
VERSATILITY – This towable is fairly versatile, and I have had good experience so far with riding different variations of passengers. It rides great with four people on board, and is nice that both parents can ride with two kids (which keeps the younger kids happy). The action of the ride increases quite a bit with just one rider in the center position, but the change in weight distribution causes the tow harness to create rope spray in the face of the rider (even when using a “Booster Ball” rope). This tube also works pretty good as a lounger when anchored out in the cove just relaxing.
SIZE – This is a 4 person tube, so it is fairly large and considerably heavy when inflated. The size is a good quality for accommodating riders comfortably, but it is a hindrance for storage or transport when not in tow. I typically deflate this towable when not in use because it is just too cumbersome to move around and it gets in the way when secured to the swim platform. It has three separate inflation compartments and inflates fairly quickly, though, so this is not really a big deal. I have no issues towing 4 people behind a 20’ Bowrider (Inboard/Outboard), but I did let a friend borrow and they had difficulty trying to tow behind an older model pontoon with a 60 HP Outboard. My best guess would be that at least 75 HP would be necessary to tow this tube (and probably need 100+ HP with four adults on the tube). I have not actually tried towing this one with a PWC (Jet Ski/Wave Runner), but I don’t think most PWC’s would pull this towable.
DURABILITY – I have only had the Atomic boat for less than two months so I cannot accurately speak to the long term durability of the product at the time of this review. One of the rear boarding straps did tear loose, but it is not a big enough issue to worry about trying to return at this point (especially since it still middle of the summer season and we currently use this tube quite frequently). As an aside, from past experience I can recommend storing Denier Nylon covered towables indoors, because direct sunlight exposure deteriorates the handles and straps very quickly. We have kept ours stored in the basement when not in use, and it still looks brand new after 5 or 6 weekends of use (other than the torn strap).
VALUE – This towable was quite pricey at the time we purchased it, but it was actually one the cheaper towables I could find to accommodate four riders. I would definitely recommend this towable over the “Poparazzi” style or multi-rider traditional style tubes if you have younger children. The added benefit of using this one as a lounger when you are taking a break anchored in the cove is also a significant benefit over the aforementioned styles. We also like this style better that the couch/chariot style tubes because the armrests provide a bit of separation between riders and cuts down on elbows and heads banging together. The durability of this towable will tell the tale, but at this point I would definitely purchase this model again.
