If there's one ski that embodies the freeride powder skiing revolution in 2020, it may just be the Bent Chetler 120. Pro skier, visionary, and artist Chris Benchetler's baby (well, one of them, that is) comes back for the 2019-2020 season with a new topsheet (naturally) but no structural changes. This is one of the surfiest, playful-est, face-spraying-est skis ever made. At 120mm underfoot with a lightweight, poppy core plus HRZN tech inserts in the tips, they float the deepest days from China Bowl to Hokkaido. Paired with a touring binding, especially the Salomon/Atomic/Armada Shift, the Bent Chetler 120 makes an excellent powder touring setup that you can take with you on international escapades. If slashes and butters are your thing, look no further. If cliff drops call your name, you've got a powder ski that practically stomps landings for you. If you take things a bit slower, still be sure to turn on the GoPro. The Bent Chetler 120 will make you look like you know what you're doing. PSA: skiers not interested in freestyling should consider mounting these skis back from recommended. Similar skis: Atomic Backland 117, Salomon QST 118.
