Atomic's number one seller worldwide! Top pros and picky shop employees like it because it’s tough and rides well in any situation from rails, to park and everywhere else imaginable. The 2.5 degree bevel minimizes hang-ups on rails and allows a brief moment for recovery on not so perfect landings. There’s a reason the competition has tried to copy it, but compare the cheat sheets and you’ll soon realize there’s only one Hatchet!

* All Mountain / Freestyle
* D4 Construction: provides four dimensions of structural fiber to optimize edge power across the entire sidecut - another reason why Atomic was rated one of Transworld’s 10 best.
* Twin-Prog sidecut: the power to hold an aggressive edge going switch or forward. Uses a smaller radius in the tip and tail, with a larger radius in the mid section. This allows you to maintain speed between hits, and rail turns. This is the sidecut that helped win Transworld’s Good Wood Award.
* Wood Core: Truth 1: Tip to tail poplar wood core.
* 2.5-degree park bevel. Forgiving on rails, still holds edge on ice
* Base: Sintered 7200 diecut. The hardest, most durable base available



145-149-153-156-159-162 for sizes

PS I have a 159 for sale.

Thats what I gather, I hear people saying they are/were taking a loss to get their name out there. I dont know if its true or not. I havn't ridden it this year but Im either returning or selling that white board and bought this years wide board.

The Atomic Hatchet is one of the boards with the best bang for the buck from what I hear, great starting all-mountain board.

Not to thread jack, what are a couple of choices one step up from the Hatchet? K2 Darkstar, Rome Agent?

I've been riding mine, and it's fantastic for beginners. the only fault i have in it is that it sucks more on Ice because of the 2.5 bevel. But otherwise, it has perfect flex for me, perfect stiffness, it's like 3 times lighter than any rental board I ever rode. it's extremely hard to catch an edge in. I couldn't be happier with a board than i am with this one.
