Built to the same specs as the original, the Atomic Bent Chetler Mini 153-163 delivers big mountain performance to ambitious young skiers ages 8-13 seeking unrestricted adventures in a variety of snow conditions. Designed by the legend Chris Benchetler himself, the Powder Rocker and HRZN tip and tail combined with a wide 90mm waist offers smaller skiers superior float in deeper snow and unlimited freeride capabilities in softer terrain. Featuring a stability-inducing Dura Cap Sidewall for solid skiing performance on harder snow surfaces, this ski is an all-round smooth and steady ride. With a construction especially tuned for up-and-coming shredders who dream of one day skiing alongside the pros, the Bent Chetler Mini 153-163 is the gateway to full-size days in big mountain terrain.
Precisely tuned edges are an important part of ski performance. A blunt edge cannot penetrate the snow surface and slides through a turn. An edge that is too sharp digs into the snow surface and makes for an unstable ride. Our alpine skis are groomed with a side edge angle of 87° for more intuitive handling, easier skiing and better grip on hard snow and ice.
All skis from our factory are delivered with steel edges that have been carefully machined with a precise 1.3° base edge bevel that lightly lifts the ski edge off the snow for easy turning while maintaining edge grip and tracking throughout the turn.
