For more than a decade, freeride skiing pioneer Chris Benchetler has shown the skiing world what expression looks like. His namesake line of skis blends his creativity as a skier and an artist. He and Atomic gave the 2021 version fresh graphics, per usual, but thats the only update. Compared to the powder-hawking Bent Chetler 120, the narrower version performs much more like a do-everything all-mountain ski. Its playful, of course, with rocker front and back and tipped up tails for landing or launching switch, but many skiers are surprised at how well it grips and carves on groomers and mixed snow conditions. While the Bent Chetler tops the wish list for countless freeride-oriented youngsters and millennials, it also gives rad dads and grizzled old-schoolers a chance to experience new-age ski technology without shocking their systems. Wide enough to float powder on most days of the year yet narrow enough to slice and dice bump lines and tree shots, the Bent Chetler 100 turns the mountain into your canvas no matter where you ski. Similar skis: Faction Candide 2.0, Liberty Origin 96, Liberty Helix 98.
