ITEM DESCRIPTION

Atomic's Bent Chetler is a versatile, very fun powder ski.

FULL REVIEW

“Engaged effortlessly,” “Very surfy, yet stable as hell,” “So cool how the tip displaces the snow and turns so quickly in the powder,” were just a few of the positive comments about Atomic’s Bent Chetler. Horizontal rocker across the ski makes for supreme float in powder and crud, while Atomic’s Carbon Sprocket Power Boosters add excellent hold and stability.

The ski did feel a bit heavy compared to the Rossignol Super 7, and it can take a few runs for hard carvers to get used to the super surfy feel. Easily one of the top skis in this category, the Bent Chetler is a very fun ski.
