Atomic Snowboards 2010-2011

15 Apr, 2010


With a product line focused on the ride from backcountry to freestyle, Atomic snowboarding makes it easy to understand and just wants you to have fun riding it as much as they had making it.  With the alps right out their doorstep, Atomic boards are built in Altenmarkt with a focus on being environmentally friendly to help protect the playground we love to play in.  The environmental effort went into their boards with the new Renu board construction on the Poacher renu and Alibi renu.  The renu board is made without fibre glass in the construction, recycled base, edge or wooden sidewalls, juta or wood construction, the renu boards are green boards to help maintain our planet.

For 10-11, Atomic gives a couple camber and rocker options to help make the ride more enjoyable on the mountain and suitable to your needs.  For rocker they have the all terrain pop rocker that features pop camber and rocker to give you all terrain action, pop rocker FS gives you pop camber and rocker with a skateboard like feel, pop rocker FR combines the benefits of rocker and camber into a longer rocker area designed to float in powder, Rocker easy to ride focuses on making the beginners happy with a neutral area between the bindings for easy to turn and rocker in the tip and tail to be less catchy.

In the camber option, they have traditional camber which provides the full effective edge and pop, neutral camber which is easy to ride and forgiveable with a neutral area from contact point to contact point, S-poontech makes the board feel shorter and buttery when flat based but on edge, gives you a edge hold of a entire effective edge.

    “The renu board is made without fibre glass in the construction”? Do you know what they are using instead? Basalt like lib-tech?, all carbon?

    If they would use all carbon, this fella would be unrideable. Carbonfibre is used to increase the stiffness and pop but keep the weight low. Fibre glass in board construction increases stiffness. Since the renu is a split board (basically never used on slope) it doesn’t require any of these materials. Soft board in powder = FUN

    Jenster, it’s changed from camber to pop rocker over the past couple years but should be a similiar flex and feel to what you loved. Are you able to demo it?
