Cosmo Pegasus 7 Atomic Sou (コスモペガサス・セブン・アトミック・双, Kosumo Pegasasu Sebun Atomikku Sō) is a Defense Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Gatinko Layer System. It was released in Japan on July 23rd, 2020 for 1100円 as one of eight possible Beyblades in Random Booster Vol. 21.
Gatinko Chip - Pegasus
Main article: Gatinko Chip - Pegasus
Takara Tomy's Pegasus is a Gatinko Chip that depicts the mythological beast and one of the 88 constellations in space, Pegasus. It follows the motif that started with Pegasus 105F. Mostly based on the former however, a Pegasus' head appears front-and-centre besides its wings. Interestingly, the Pegasus head has taken a radical redesign from its original appearances. Rather than taking a cartoon-esque stylized approach, it has turned to become slightly realistic and edgier as well. It has yellow eyes and its snout has become slightly longer, its two nose-holes are smaller, while its "hair" did not fail to change. The original lightning-bolt shape that has remained a staple for every Pegasus motif (except for Samurai Pegasus W105R2F) has changed to become a golden bladed feather crest that slightly gives the impression of what they once were.
Pegasus' wings rest next to its head, each taking a step further from Samurai Pegasus to appear more "wing-like". Pegasus' wings are put into three sections on each wing; having six in total. The first, primary section sits at the bottom with a white hue transitioning into a light-blue one. In essence, it gifts the wings with a heavenly-like motif that has a very "angelic" profile. Other than this, Pegasus' head is incased in a seaform green Gatinko Chip and concludes the latest representation of the Pegasus family.

Forge Disc - 7
Main article: Forge Disc - 7
7, like other odd numbered Core Discs, is an asymmetrical, elliptical disc that can facilitate a Disc Frame. 7 is designed similar to Gravity or Heavy, with seven designs jutting out that resemble the number "7". At first glance, the Disc looks unbalanced, but in reality, two of the sections on one side being halves makes it balanced. 7 is one of the heaviest Discs thus far, outclassed only by 10 and 0, and has a ideal weight distribution for Stamina Combinations. Its high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) grants it not only the highest Stamina potential out of all other Core Discs, but its weight grants it high Attack and Defense potential without the severe Burst Risk of 8. With the use of Disc Frames, 7 can be used to great effect in any Combination.
Performance Tip - Atomic
Main article: Performance Tip - Atomic
Atomic is a Performance Tip that features a free-rotating ball tip, akin to its predecessor Orbit, surrounded by a four-tabbed, free-spinning ring. Unlike Orbit, the ball of Atomic is approximately 3.4 times larger in volume or 1.3 times wider in diameter. In theory, the wider tip would increase a Beyblade's Knock-Out Defense by having greater surface area and friction. However, in practice, the free-rotating nature of the ball reduces most of the Knock-Out Defense given by the surface area of the ball. Like all other ball-based Performance Tips, the tabs around Atomic are meant to act as brakes against Knock-Outs at the cost of Stamina by striking against the stadium floor. However, the larger diameter makes such contact rare. If hard launched, the greater surface area creates a semi-aggressive movement pattern early in the battle, bringing the Beyblade close to the Tornado Ridge.
While these features may imply that an Atomic Combination would be easy to Knock-Out, in reality the heavy weight of SwitchStrike/God Layers, Cho-Z Layers, Forge Discs and Atomic's own weight compensates for the rotating ball. Furthermore, the free-rotating ball increases the Burst Resistance of a Defense Combination. However, for the Takara Tomy release of Atomic, its spring lock is noticeably weaker than Orbit's, making Atomic lag behind its predecessor in terms of Burst Resistance.
In addition to the Defense properties, Atomic features high Stamina and Spin-Equalization potential, as well as the free-rotating nature of the ball reduces friction with the stadium floor, as the wide ball tip will keep a Combination stable and thus prevents scraping, and the free-spinning ring increases Precession time and Life-After-Death.
