The Atomic Bent Chetler 120 is Chris Benchetler’s signature ski and the big brother of the Bent ski family. This pillow-bashing, powder-slashing machine features topsheet and base art by the man himself. With construction and shaping designed and refined by Chris Benchetler since 2008, the latest iteration redefines what’s possible in big mountain terrain. Dura Cap Sidewall construction combined with revolutionary HRZN Tech offers more surface area in the tip and tail for better tracking through chop and crud with less tip deflection. The Light Woodcore shaves weight while the Carbon Backbone adds strength and stiffness. The Powder Rocker profile offers the perfect amount of tip and tail turn-up, and camber under foot delivers epic performance through deep turns, side hits, and nose butters.

I rode these skis as a daily driver for four years. I loved them. I have two different pairs.
Unfortunately, both pairs have binding rip-outs in the middle of the 2nd season. The soft wood cores in these skis simply do not hold up to many days of hard skiing.
So yeah, they are great, fun surfy skis. My favorite ski I've ever ridden. But don't expect them to last long.
