Atomic Axum Snowboard

Sale: $0.00
Retail: $399.00

Save 47%
The 2012 Axum by Atomic is the offering to the Park freestyler who also will venture into the backside of the mountain looking for powder stashes. With a true-twin shape, and the 2.5 degree terrain park edge bevel, this board was made for jumps, spins, rails, boxes, whatever your local snow playground has to offer. For the powder days, the S-Poontech rocker profile and rugged flex will give you enough float and strength to power through variable snow conditions. If it isn't obvious already, we recommend this board to intermediate to advanced park riders who will also spend a chunk of time ripping around off-trail.

Atomic Board Flex Rating: 6: Atomic's Flex Ratings go from 2 (soft) to 8 (stiff), so this board is in the upper end of stiffness. Stiffer boards have higher top speeds, have better stability at speed and better stability through bumpy/choppy terrain--but softer boards are easier to learn on and easier to do terrain park tricks with. At a rating of 6, the rider using this board would be a strong All-Mountain snowboarder that may do laps in the park every once in a while but is more often than not shredding around somewhere off-piste.

Atomic's S-Poontech Rocker is a rocker shape that makes the board feel shorter when flat, but gives you supreme edge hold when put on edge. S-Poontech boards are awesome all-terrain boards for riders who like to go fast and ride everything.


7200 Sintered Base: The stone ground finish of this base, along with the 7200 level Sintered material improves glide, and is typically found on intermediate and above level boards. This is often called a UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight) base.


2.5 Degree (Park) Bevel: The 2.5 degree bevel eliminates rail and kicker hangups and lets you stick landings on spins that you didn't quite spin enough.

D4 Sandwich Construction: This type of sandwich (full sidewall) construction sandwiches 4 layers of glass in between the poplar woodcore sections. There are definitely more complicated ways of describing this technology, but it would be hard for both of us to understand. Basically D4 construction means this board is extremely lively and poppy, so when you load it up with a turn, its going to accelerate you out of the turn.

Symmetrical Twin: This board is a full on twin-tip snowboard. Not a directional twin tip, or an asymmetrical twin-tip. The tip and tail are exactly identical, so you can spin and land switch, ride switch, do whatever you want in either direction.

Truth2 CNC Wood Core: The Truth2 Core features tip to tail poplar, as well as inserts for added strength and milled-out channels for reduced weight. This core is stiffer and poppier than the Truth1 core without adding any additional weight.

Twin Progressive Sidecut: The sidecut used in most (good) park boards, a Twin Progressive sidecut lets you get in and out of turns quickly and easily. This sidecut is best for spinning, jumping, riding switch and just playing around in general--and they are worst at railing icy groomers at Mach 5.

Carbon Power Struts: Strategically placed carbon rods store your saved energy for tons of acceleration out of turns and mega-pop off of kickers.
