The Curated Take
The Atomic Bent 100 (formerly Bent Chetler 100) are an amazing all mountain option for a number of skiers, but they can really shine as 50/50 touring setup too. They are lightweight skis that can still be driven hard, and have a 100mm waist to allow for some floatation if the snow is getting deeper. They are super responsive skis and you get a good direct feel to the snow. They hold an edge quite well on steep slopes, and are good wherever you take them up until high speeds. I found when driving them really hard at higher speeds, the lighter weight and stiffness really came through and they chattered at the tips a bit.
- Good 50/50 touring ski
- Chattery at high speeds
The Atomic Bent 100 Skis are the ultimate do-everything freeride skis designed by ski legend Chris Benchetler and the Atomic Freeski team. These all-mountain skis are a slimmed-down version of the award-winning signature model, the Bent Chetler 120. With a versatile 100mm waist, these directional skis feature HRZN Tech in the tip and tail for increased surface area and float. The Light Woodcore and generous Powder Rocker encourage you to slash and slarve your way down any terrain from peak to park. Dura Cap Sidewalls offer controlled power transmission and commanding edge grip on harder snow.
