Atomic are one of the most influential names in skiing. From World Cup race teams to X-games athletes, Atomic hasn’t just got them all. It’s got all the winners as well, and it’s not surprising. Atomic has been making top-class skis for an eternity.

I got my first pair of Punx, inspired by the one and only Jossi Wells. If that name resonates with you, then it’s worth knowing the Bent 110s are his new favourite ski. Atomic has been lucky enough to have Chris Bentchetler (freeride legend) play a big part in designing these bad boys.

The original ‘Bent Chetler’ series has been around longer than I can remember. But it’s only recently that they have started to take over the Atomic’s freestyle and freeride ski department with enough options to please the whole family. There’s five skis ranging from 84 to 120 mm.

Not only did Chris have a say in the shaping of the skis, but he also designed the topsheets too. There are similarly stunning designs throughout the range. One thing we would say is be prepared to pick up the wrong skis outside the cafe on your trip, these are popular skis and someone might just end up ‘borrowing’ them when you least expect it. 

Chris has a love for surfing and skiing, and this shines through in the great work of the Atomic engineers. That clever lot have developed one of the lighter skis on the market. 

Atomic Bent 110 Build

The Bent 110 features the HRZN tech tip and tail, which provides 10% more surface area for skiing the deep stuff without adding more weight. Not only does the HRZN tech give you more flotation, but it’s nearly impossible to catch your nose and also it looks really cool and surfy on the chairlift (if that’s what you’re into).

The Poplar wood core means the ski is extremely light and surprisingly stable in the crud, however do expect a little chatter at very high speeds. The Dura Cap side wall helps transmit power evenly and provides a good grip on the edges. Atomic claims that it also helps save any unwanted dings to the edge of the ski.

Atomic Bent 110 Shaping

The Bent 110 is very directional for a twin tip, something which makes for great skiing. While going forwards, the ski rips through all terrain. There honestly isn’t much I wouldn’t point this ski at, and you certainly don’t have to worry about getting caught up with the fat nose which is nice. Heads up though, at slower speeds it is possible to get a little caught up while skiing switch.

Who Is The Atomic Bent 110 For?

The Bent 110 is aimed for skiers who want to ride predominantly in the soft stuff but don’t want to commit to the 120. They perform well in all snow conditions and can hold their own in the park. That being said, if you’re looking for a park-orientated ski then, we’d recommend looking more towards the Bent 100 or lower.

The 110 is great if you want to rip around the resort hitting side hits, doing cliff drops and just shredding the whole mountain. The shape of them also means they’re great for ripping carves on the piste, meaning you could give them to your dad when you’re done with them… if he’s cool enough, that is.
