The Full maple laminate deck is one of the best features about the construction of this product which has been appreciated by buyers. It is this construction which makes the board stronger, more durable and flexible. The item comes with the addition of graphics which make it sleeker to look at.
The board is fitted with urethane wheels which offer a lot of benefits, such as the ability to move fast on all kinds of surfaces – including soft ones such as wood, metal, half pipes and marble mini ramps. This ensures that you are able to use the board easily and anywhere you want. You can also perform many sliding tricks on it such as blunts, lipslides and grinds without encountering any problems. The boards are durable in nature and this particular longboard will last you for many years.
The board does not have any kick tails but consists of Reverse King Pin trucks which can help you to make height adjustments and make sure that the longboard always stays near the ground. As its base has been kept ultra-low, you can easily accomplish a curve while going downhill.

The Atom longboard is made of maple wood, which is one of the materials traditionally used in longboard production. Maple wood is stable, strong and sturdy. The fact that the large-sized Atom Drop is made of strong material ensures that it is able to withstand any obstacle that may come your way and our panel found it performed well in bumpy conditions.
The board has an elliptical shape and a more or less deep concave to it. This allows you to keep your feet securely in position and makes sure that you are always on your board rather than flying off when you come across a bump on the road.

Cons of this longboard
The board has a very traditional design and the coloring is not especially outstanding. But the performance of the longboard more than outweighs the design.
