The Atomic Bent Chetler Skis were made to ride high in deep powder, launch off a lip, stick the switch landing and do it all over again. With a jumbo 123mm waist, the Bent Chetler can handle the deepest of the deep, the fluffiest of the fluff, and the softest of the soft but with traditional sidecut and camber right underfoot you can make it back to the lift with confidence. For 2013, Chris Benchetler wanted more, so Atomic added Carbon Sprocket Power Boosters in the tip and tail.
Powder Rocker: for freeskiers who want perfect lift in powder while still desiring stability on hard snow
Flotation with 30% tip rocker / 40% camber / 30% tail rocker
The Carbon SPB (Sprocket Power Booster) delivers maximum pop in every turn.
The combination of wood core and SPB stabilizes the Rocker area and ensures extremely smooth skiing.
Step Down Sidewall: the extremely durable sidewall construction below the binding improves damping, shock absorption, and therefore edge grip. Half-cap construction at the tip and tail protects the ski from mechanical damage.
We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.
