Atomic Bent Chetler Ski - Men's: The Bent Chetler is the ski Chris Benchetler has always dreamed of! Atomic brought those dreams to reality by creating the most amazing freestyle powder ski to date. Carbon SBP, or Sprocket Power Booster construction offers a super lightweight solution for stability in the Rocker areas and tons of pop. Its Powder Rocker profile combines the perfect amount of rocker in the tip and tail, while camber under foot delivers performance throughout turns and nose butters in soft and mixed snow. With bomber Step-Down-Sidewall construction and a 123mm waist width Atomic delivers one of the most versatile powder weapons on the planet!
The Atomic Bent Chetler is one of the most unique skis to date. Its meant for the deep powder, it rides like a park ski off-piste, and it handles exceptionally well on the groomers. Its fat attributes would attest to the latter of the statements but in reality the Bent Chetler is much lighter than its 123 mm width. It also has enough camber underfoot for the pow clears. But thats not what this ski is about. Take this rocker ski to get some face shots and you won't be disappointed. Atomic has added Carbon "Sprocket Power Boosters" in the tip and the tail in order to give it that extra oomph that so many skis are lacking. Free skiing adrenaline junkies will love these guys.
The perfect tools for backcountry freestylers in search of powder, the Atomic Bent Chetler skis ride high on their jumbo waists and rockered tips, launch off a lip and stick the switch landing.

More versatile than you'd think a 123-millimeter-waisted fatty would be, the Atomic Bent Chetler Ski floats through the deepest, mankiest snow but has traditional camber underfoot for lively and powerful turning. Atomic’s Powder Rocker delivers plenty of rocker in the tip and tail―in fact, 60% rocker―so there’s no such thing as a day that’s too deep or grabby. Powder frenzy to face-plant? Not a chance. Step-down sidewall construction and a wood core keep it quick edge-to-edge and carbon SPB inserts dampen the chatter when you're doing a long-ass straightline. A true freeride board, this is the one you take on that heli trip or storm-chasing.

I am an advanced skier, 5'10", 183cm, mounted -2.5cm and they are the 12/13 model.
Found a great deal online and Backcountry matched their price with no problem.
I ski primarily in VT but make it out west every year. Took these bad boys out in December and the conditions were like spring skiing. The BC's charged right through the heavy mash and on the groomers they ripped edge to edge. Had to work them a little but what do you expect for a 123mm waist? Overall these things were a blast to be on, skied like a 108mm waisted ski, and the versatility just blew me away. Definitely recommend picking these up if you can, I have yet to ski them in powder but I have no worries about their performance.
These skis charge through anything and everything. The ability to ski powder and to get through the crud is pretty inCRUDible! Surprisingly enough you can really get these skis on edge and rip a turn as well. Personally I have yet to ski a powder ski that can handle it all like the bentchetler does
