The Atomic Backland Bent Chetler was the most sought-after ski in this lineup. More often than not, they were the first to disappear from the locker room each day—and it's clear to see why once you give 'em a whirl. Taking design input from pro freerider, Chris Benchetler, Atomic has created a pow-skiing masterpiece capable of turning the mountain into your playground. A 120 mm waist and blended rocker profile give you a solid footing for surfy floatation while full-length carbon stringers add both pop and stability—making this an all-around playful powerhouse.
The Atomic Backland Bent Chetler rolls into the 2017/2018 season with swagger (a brand new look). Our links will take you to the new model, pictured above.

With traditional ABS sidewalls fused into a lateral rocker in tip and tail, the Backland Bent Chetler also has a buttery-yet-resilient edge for better tracking and less deflection in tracked-out pow. It's the trick-friendly, pivoty play-tool that you've always wanted to bring out on the deep days. That's why we awarded it the Top Pick for Freeride Powder—it likes to get rowdy just as much as you do.
