The bamboo rails on the Coda runs along the sidewalls on the Element they're two rails running more towards the center of the board. I've also heard the coda runs a bit stiffer than the ELement RX so where the RX is something that you could dabble with in the park (but would not be ideal) I'd wager the Coda falls more in to that category of "Sure, you *could* jib with it but why would you bother???"
It is a pretty slight different probably, but it be enough to matter to some riders.
