Atomic Board Flex Rating: 5: Atomic's Flex Ratings go from 2 (soft) to 8 (stiff), so this board is on the lower end of stiffness. Softer boards require less muscle to turn, and will be smooth and stable at a lower range of speeds. Soft snowboards are also much easier to manhandle in the halfpipe and terrain park. At a rating of 5, the rider of this board would be a progressing intermediate or an advanced rider looking for a suitable All-Mountain flex.

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.
1 Degree Power Bevel: This minimal edge angle allows for quicker edge to edge transitions than more exaggerated bevels. This edge bevel is built for speed and stability, but not for beginners, as you are more likely to catch an edge.
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.
Truth3 Lightweight Wood Core: The Truth3 core is made of specially chosen, high-density Poplar along the edges and the inserts, and specially chosen low density poplar in between. This makes the board strong and beefy where it needs to be, and superlight where it doesn't.
Kinetic Core FR: This core feature means that the tip of this board has "space-age material" in the nose along with the lightweight poplar core. Atomic hasn't indicated precisely what material we are taking into space, but it is an extremely light metal foil that will store energy make the tip lighter than the tail. Having the tip lighter than the tail is significant for powder boards, as letting the tail sink will naturally raise the tips and give you more flotation.
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.
Triadic Progressive Sidecut: A sidecut of this shape allows the rider to ease into wider turns without hooking, then make the turn as tight as desired as the rider accelerates through the middle of the turn and come out of the turn without losing much (if any) energy.
