Atomic's Backland Bent Chetler Ski constantly redefines what's possible in powder. Professional powder player Chris Benchetler chooses this ski to pop off kickers, jib trees, and flip off awe-inspiring cliffs because of the ski's harmonious blend of poppy performance, rugged durability, and a backcountry-friendly weight. Atomic's HRZN Tech blends a durable ABS sidewall construction with a horizontal rocker that adds 10% more surface area to the tail for less tip deflection and better tracking. Pair that with a whole lot of rocker in the tip and tail, and you're bound to have a playful time every time you dive into the deeps.
It goes without saying that a 120mm waist width means the Backland Bent Chetler Ski excels in powder, but Atomic added slight camber underfoot to assure solid edge control when you hit occasional hardpack. The Backland boasts a light wood core made of poplar to ensure stability and proper shock absorption, and there's a carbon backbone to increase edge control, enhance agility, and remain strong for seasons of cliff-droppings, tree-jibbings, and downright rowdy powdery play.

Such fun skis!!!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I am so stoked I purchased these skis. I was on the fence about buying these and then finally pulled the trigger about two weeks ago. I got these to be my powder ski when Little Cotton Wood Canyon get some fresh stuff. I got the 192s and put the Look Pivot 18s on these, I weigh about 200lbs and would consider myself a pretty aggressive skier. I would definitely recommend these skis to anyone looking for a playful powder ski. If you have any questions on this ski or any others on our site then hit me up. My email is email@example.com and would love to answer any questions you might have.
