The Bent was very popular with our team. It’s such an easy ski to use. The wide platform keeps you up on the surface, while the rocker is nicely judged to keep it easy to pivot and nicely balanced in deep conditions. The binding feels as though you are positioned in the middle of the ski, which is great for riding switch and pivoting - but it can make it a little twitchy on long, fast turns.

Lovely, easy ski to use, with plenty of width and a perfect profile. I really enjoyed it

What a fun, playful ski! Rockered shape and central mount make it so easy to pivot
