Right now I’m riding on a old Duotone split but I’m thinking about splitting an Atomic Banger. Does anyone of you know if this could be a suitable board to split? I’ve been riding it before and is happy with the performance, just hope that splitting it will be OK. /Hampus April 26, 2011 at 10:08 pm #639756 PedroDelfuego 758 Posts It will soften after splitting. Just make sure it has a solid wood core. No foam, no hybrid, no honeycomb BS. April 27, 2011 at 7:59 am #639757 hamp_e 3 Posts Thanks for the information. I read this in the description about the core: The D4 sandwich construction keeps the flex poppy and transfers from edge to edge quickly. The core is an extra special blend of top secret wood and bio-engineered poplar with milled channels to reduce weight and increase pop. Do you think the “milled channels” can be a problem?

The only thing i saw happening was that super soft nose getting even softer. I would just be weary when/if you get out on it not to put too much weight on the nose it in split mode. The milled channel should not matter, and if there is a channel right down the middle you could fill it with epoxy once its split. Not optimal, but nothing that would stop me either. I split a K2 Gyrator with honeycomb and just filled it with epoxy and it seemed fine… Viewing 4 posts - 1 through 4 (of 4 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
