Last season saw big changes in Atomic’s product offering, and following on from the big year, Atomic have only released minor updates for 2019/20.
We see new graphics across the whole range, including the Bent Chetler 120 and Bent Chetler 100. Chris Bentchetler has been designing his pro-model for years now, and last years update saw the wide powder ski come in at a much lighter weight but still retain the same playfulness and stability. The new kid on the block last year was the Bent Chetler 100. The Chetler 100 is a more directional, 100mm waisted ski designed for all-mountain skiing. It too is lighter weight and can be paired with a touring binding like the Atomic Shift can cover all your skiing needs. The graphics update for this year for the Chetler 100 is amazing and the ski looks fantastic. Whilst there were no Chetler 120s for us to photograph, the top sheet will be the same as the Chetler Mini below.
Atomic also introduced the new Vantage series in the 2018 season. Having skied them at numerous demo days, we were impressed with their liveliness and on-piste performance, especially in the Vantage 97Ti and the Vantage 90Ti, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for a skier who spends time off-piste as well. This year we see graphics updates and changes to the top sheets which should improve durability.
