A lot of you friendly shred puppies message me wondering what skis I ride and where I mount them, so this is a long overdue ski review.... I ski the @atomicski 185 Bent Chetlers mounted on the factory line. I designed the first generation in 2008 and have continually tested, changed, and tried to improve their overall performance year after year. This latest generation has been my favorite yet. It's very surfy, versatile, and light. We've changed shapes and side cuts, implemented a multi dimensional rocker in the tip and tail called HRZN tech, added a carbon backbone, and lighter wood core. It's very conducive for how I like to ride. The swing weight and shape allows for easier butters, switch skiing, reverts, and releases the tail super well in slashes, etc... For those of you that take a more directional approach, I'd recommend -1 or -2 lines behind the factory line. The factory line was created to work best for a multi directional type of skier after multiple tests. Hope that helps! Thanks to all of you for the continued stoke, and to all the Atomic team that continually kill it and shred my skis so well  -» ‍: @skichef #bentchetler #discoverthebackland - from CB Instagram Reel
