Atomic Bent Chetler Skis – 2016
115+ MM Freestyle Ranking: #02
Think about Chris Benchetler’s skiing style for a moment: smooth and effortless, big tricks in big terrain and, of course, that signature nose butter. Keeping that in mind, it’s no surprise that the Atomic Bent Chetler Skis scored so highly in the playfulness and float categories. To reflect Chris’ personal outlook on the mountain, the Bent Chetler utilizes Atomic’s HRZN Tech— a blend of ABS sidewall and horizontal rocker in the tip and tail—to add more surface area without increasing swing weight. Carbon inserts in front of and behind the binding stabilize the ride, helping these powderhounding planks dominate across the entire mountain.
