The superfat Bent Chetler easily has the most distinctive performance feel to it—all jibby and forward-mounted and twin-tipped. It might be the least versatile ride in the category, but in powder its great width plus heaping helpings of taper and rocker make it by far the surfiest, slashiest, and easiest to pivot of the bunch. Acrobatic freestylers who have freed themselves from the oppression of carved turns will enjoy it most. “Super playful. Nimble, smeary, quick and acrobatic,” said Britt.
