Over the last few days, Atomic has been teasing everyone with little snippets of the new range. Lately, they released the first look at the Bent Chetler 100 and graphic release of the Bent Chetler 120. These two skis are the brainchild of van-lifing, backcountry butter maestro, Chris Benchetler. Check out what he has to say about the skis below! (Skis @ 11:00 and the New Bent Chetler 100 @ 19:00)
Join us for day 2 of the North America 2019 product launch with special guest Chris Benchetler who has some exciting news to share about the Bent Chetler skis in 2019! #weareskiing

The Bent Chetler 100 is designed to be a narrower version with all the same characteristics as its bigger brother. Think floaty, surfy and fun! The most notable difference (apart from the waist width) is a stiffened tail, which will definitely aid hard snow performance and will make using these skis on jumps a joy. We have just received the Atomic Bent Chetler 100 in the shop, and they will not last long!
Atomic Bent Chetler 120
The Bent Chetler 120 takes over right where the Bent Chetler left off. The cornerstone of modern powder skis with the most beautiful graphics. Atomic have updated the core, made the skis lighter and doubled down on HRZN tech, the first multi-directional rocker. Pair them up with a freeride touring binding (like Atomic’s new Shift) and you have a killer in and out of bounds powder weapon.
Also, did we mention its beautiful? Apparently white is in this year in the ski world, and these take the cake. They also match up with the Atomic Hawk XTD 120 and Women’s Hawk XTD 110 perfectly, wouldn’t that be the setup?! If you know of a better-looking ski let us know, but we can’t think of one.
We also took a bunch of photos of the rest of the 2019 Atomic range, they can be viewed here!
