This board uses ABEC 5 bearings, which aren’t the best, so you may want to change them for better speed. The price of better replacements isn't high, but they may be hard to find, since the needed size is larger than standard mountainboard bearings. See More
The SDS 32'' is quite light and compact, when compared to other mountainboards, and can therefore be carried around easily. Like on skateboards, the grip tape covers the top of the board, so if you get tired of mountainboarding, you can take the bindings off and use it as an all-terrain longboard or a board for daily commutes.

Straight out of the box, this board has very little customization options: you can change the board’s tires and little else. Theoretically, this can be fixed by drilling new holes for bindings and trucks, but considering the cost of doing that, you’ll be better off upgrading to a new, superior board. See More
The Atom 95x uses very simple skate-style trucks. The axles are only 9.5mm and very light, so they are perfect for young riders or lightweight adults. The bushings of the truck can be changed to different stiffness levels, effectively changing the riding feel of the board. See More
The Atom 95x is equipped with a hand brake, by default, that can be used on both axles, making it usable by left and right footed riders. For beginners, the hand brake adds peace of mind and can be important in injury prevention. Nevertheless, some users dislike using a hand brake, since it restricts back arm movement, which is important to keep balance. See More
Since this board's deck is wide and long, with wide skate trucks, it feels very stable when carving downhill, even at moderate speeds. Additionally, the included F1 velcro bindings will keep you firmly attached to the board at all times, even in rough terrain or when performing tricks. See More
