Since 2009, Chris Benchetler and Atomic have collaborated each year to make the Bent Chetler pro model ski even better. This year, both Atomic and Benchetler think they have created the Best Bent Chetler ever.
Featuring a huge 123mm waist width, Pop Rocker 20, the Bent Chetler delivers optimum lift and a true surf feeling in the backcountry. The half-cap construction at the tip and tail and traditional sandwich construction below the binding make this ski a breeze to maneuver while also ensuring extreme stability.
Benchetler not only oversees the shape and performance this year, he, once again, has painted all the graphics by hand. "All of my ski designs are inspired by my hobbies, my adventures and my life. The surfer is a recurring motif, because I feel a close connection with the sea and I also like to try out different surf tricks in powder. Japanese symbols reflect my love for Asian culture. And the mammoth represents Mammoth Mountain in California, my home. The designs for this year’s model are heavily inspired by the Beatles."
