Atomic Bent Chetler Men’s Skis – 2014/2015 ReviewOctober 12, 2014
- Super forgiving
- Fun to ski
- Felt a little heavy
- Takes a couple runs to figure out
Atomic's Bent Chetler got a couple "Favorite" marks from our testers, and is a fun, surfy powder ski.
“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.
