When you click into the Atomic Backland Bent Chetler Skis on a powder day, you are going to experience pow nirvana. Chris Benchetler designed his pro model ski to float through deep powder, launch off kickers, jib trees, and straight line the fastest chutes. A massive 30% tip and tail rocker combine with HRZN technology for mega float, butter-ability and playfulness in deep snow. 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, along with a slight camber underfoot to assure solid edge control when you hit occasional hardpack. Pair that with the fat 120mm waist and there is no way you are sinking into the pow. 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 freeskiing abuse. If you want the ultimate ride through the white room, get a pair of the Atomic Backland Bent Chetler Skis.
